Did a bit of airbrushing...

I have not touched a paint brush since the first of the year sadly.  However, this past weekend I was able to break out the airbrush and get a little work done a few new models.

First off the Decimator.  I love the model, the legs are a bit of a pain to get positioned right but worth the hassle.

Next up was the Hell Talon/Blade.  I can never remember which is which....

Then finally is the ork fighta.   I know blue is not the traditional color of the ork fightas but I wanted something different and I was tired of painting red.  Plus all my ork vehicles are blue so it fits.

After doing several layers and getting the colors the way I wanted them I went back and sealed them with a satin coat.  This will keep other inks, washes and glazes from distorting the final air brush color.  The air brush paint can be porous which can sometimes adsorb the washes and distort the end result.

I actually did a few other items as well but didn't get them completed.  So still on the air brush work bench are 2 triarch stalkers, 3 acenthrites, 1 squiggoth, 9 penal legion, and 1 test marine, iron hands.

Small unit of Chaos Marines

I ordered these heads/shoulder pads from Puppetwars because I thought they look cool.  I really like them, very evil and twisted looking.  These would be great for Iron Warriors, Fabius Bile's augmented CSM or just about any other units but I think those two are great.  I may order another set and flush out the unit.

The melta gun is from Maxmini, I just like the alternate look of the gun.

I want my tzeench termies to have combi plasma guns.  But such a thing doesn't exist.  So using the combi flamer and the plasma bit off the obliterator sprues I made this.  I'm sure if I like it or not.  Looks sort of like a hack job, which it is, but I dont have a ton of time any more.  So I'm wondering if you think it looks good enough to get by with.
