Managed to get some base coats on the minis that were recently built and I managed to get them on the table against Alan. Here again is the reason why I am asking all you out there who are still on the fence about getting an airbrush to really consider it. I finished all of the minis below in 1 hour. Including time between cleaning the airbrush, rinsing and spraying. 1 hour.

Why? Because the cleaning time is spread between all the models. Think of cleaning as your Capital Cost. The larger the unit count, the lower the Capital Cost.
I usually will let my built models accumulate until they hit critical mass then hit them as much as possible together. Unless of course, you have specific units or ranges that you don't intend to grow (Sanguinary Guard and Malifaux models come to mind).

Will be working on them over this week!
