Another MAS Guard Tower

Finished up another Micro Art Studio Guard Tower tonight. I'm starting to get the hang of the airbrush and get quicker with it - this took me under two and a half hours.




The desert-y color scheme was applied thusly:

Base coat VMC 124 Iraqi Sand
Shade with VMC 129 Light Brown
More shadow with P3 Bloodstone
Final shading with GW Scorched Brown
Highlight with VMC 008 Beige
Final Highlights with VMC 005 Ivory

The Brown Stripe was first masked off with blue Scotch painter's tape, then:

Base coat P3 Umbral Umber
Highlight with P3 Bootstrap Leather
Shade with P3 Exile Blue

As usual, the lights were first painted with white, and then colored with Badger Minitaire Ghost Tints - Blue and Plasma Fluid, this time.

  1. Nice work Tom!

    Have you had any trouble with the Ghost tints drying on the needle tip excessively?

  2. What PSI are you running the Ghost tints?
