Discussion: Painting / gw paints for airbrushing
« on: August 25, 2013, 10:45:09 PM »
Hey guys I'm new to the hobby and recently bought an airbrush for the space marine army I'm starting. Was wondering what you guys use to thin gw paints. I bought vallejo air primer online so I'm good there, but plan on using gw paints because there isn't a store in my area that carries vallejo paint.

Thanks for all the replies that I've received, I really appreciate the feed back. I have decided that space marines is the way I want to start this crazy hobby. I borrowed the codex from a guy at the local hobby shop and I'm really into the back story/model designs. Salamanders have really got me excited for some reason, as I spent the better part of work today thinking about them. I bought a box of tactical marines on the way home and can't wait to start putting them together. I probably should have waited until the new codex to buy anything, but that's like asking a starving man not to eat anything at a thanksgiving dinner. Thanks again for all the input and advice.

I have been watching 40k videos online for months now and I have become hooked on this game. Unfortunately I have also become terrified to purchase my first models because I want to find the perfect army. I don't mean the most powerful army, just one I will enjoy building and playing. I'm pretty set on starting with space marines but I'm at a loss as to which chapter to pick. I am leaning toward the vanilla space marines right now especially with the new codex coming out soon. Does anyone have advice for someone just starting this hobby? I should mention that my painting skills are not the greatest so an easier army to paint is a plus. The army I picture myself playing is more of an elite shooting type army. Thank you for the guidance and input!
