Really nice. I'm not a huge fan of the Warmachine Elves, the armor look like a logitech-mouse plug, but can't say anything against the painting itself.

Just two questions:

1. I assume that you used P3 colors only. How much dilution did you use to get that smooth transition between the colors? My tries so far with P3 in my airbrush gun were not that great compared to Vallejo Model Air. (the violet pooled like ink)

2. What thinner medium did you use? Water, special airbrush thinner or something else?

Cheers, Karnstein

thank ;)

yes, I use P3 when I paint privateer press miniatures

I used thinner Vallejo and water
the mixture is:
2 drops of paint
2 drops of thinner vallejo
2 drops water

the paint 3 with airbrush is very dificult because the pigmentation is more thick
Model air is more fine and it is more easy for the painter

Well done, thanks for sharing!

Are P3 paints the paints of your choice? I saw you that you use other brands too...

So I am wondering if you use P3 because you prefer them or just because they are suggested/recommended/required by the manufacturer?

Of course I will understand if you don't respond because of some obligations to manufacturers that you paint for. I am only interested in different opinions about paints, because in my post about the paints used by me for miniature painting I wrote my opinion based only on my experience, but some people may have different feelings about some paints, so I am always open to new experience or opinions.

Vallejo, P3 and Citaldel are good paints.
I prefer Vallejo for his fine pigmentation, i like it.
also vallejo has a great range of colors( Model Air,Game Color,etc...), you have much possibilities.

I used P3 with Privateer Press models, the colors are more satin but I mixture in some colors the flat base of Tamiya so I can get mate colors.

When I used airbrush I add thinner of vallejo for P3 so it is more easy.

Each paint has its characteristic :)

Great article in your blog ;)

I understand you apply the base first, then lights, and shadows last. When and where do you apply tones? They are also part of the white color right?
