Airbrushing all three ravagers, the venom, and twelve reavers took only about an hour. That included set up and clean up time.
One last thing and then I will shut up, If you get an airbrush, I would invest in some good airbrush paint. Mixing is a hassle, and I got the yellow wrong so I had to do it 3-4 times. Then I got it too thick and you can see some splattering on the ravager sails and reaver cowling. The red paint was airbrush paint and I just poured it into the airbrush. The yellow I mixed myself and was at first too thin, then too thick. Too thin meant it disappeared after it dried, and too thick meant it splattered. Live and learn.

Next, I painted the shoulder pads and breastplate with dwarf bronze. I forgot to get the knee pads, and got those later. The paint brush shown is the one I do most my painting with. It is a size 0. You can see I have used it a lot. It is not an expensive brush and has worked well as long as you keep it clean.
Boltgun Metal for the mask, upper arm armor, stomach armor, and blades.
Tallarn Flesh for the loin cloth. Again it covers very well in only one coat. Just don't get it where you don't want it.

So I painted up a single trueborn to try more metalics while maintaining the red/black armor theme. I like what I have so far. It is almost done. Why a trueborn with close combat weapon and pistol you say? I want to try a squad of 4 blasters, 4 with cc weapon and pistol, and a leader with agonizer or something to go with Duke Sliscus. Then you can blow up the transport, and kill the unit in close combat. Hopefully.

After putting together 10 wyches in the standard way, I decided to try some different poses. I pinned them with some nickel titanium orthodontic wire. I like the poses. You may notice some magnets on the special weapon models as well.
