Lol. Yup cheating!

It actually was fairly easy but super laborious. Tons of masking, but there are huge elements of of time save if you do it in bulk.

Note. It would have been easier if I decided to do this before I assembled the models....

I'm sure the time in comparison to wet blended NMM isn't remotely comparable. Good job!

Do you use it to prime models as well?

Which one do you have? Gravity Fed or bottle fed? How do you clean it?

I'm staring at 6 DE Raiders and a paint brush and want to hang myself.

No. I prime with spray cans. I've tried to priming with air brush and its super thin but it doesn't seem to protect as well. That said painting base colors is a huge time saver. It really shines on vehicles. I have a dual action gravity fed brush and a gw paint gun. The paint gun was 40 buck and is actually great for base coating. Dark eldar would be perfect for an air brush.

I use an iwata eclipse. They are pretty easy to clean. I strip it down between projects and give it a good cleaning. Takes 20 minutes. Otherwise you just run Windex through it is usually enough to maintain it.

Poked around a bit regarding airbrushing. This article seems chock full of awesomesauce: http://www.dakkadakka.com/wiki/en/Zenit ... rey_Knight

The core scheme wont work with your white/black, but after that's done you should do the weapon source lighting on your Raven Guard. Great effect for two squeezes of a trigger.
