I use an Infinity. For really fine work remember, you need to lower air pressure, and lower pressure means thinner paints, when I am doing very close/fine detail work the paint is basically 3:1 thinner to paint. it is VERY thin.
Makes sense, I run around ten I think. Haven’t ever really tried doing finer sections other than on a whim the other day. Like I said I don’t really airbrush so I did not mess with my pressure or viscosity, I haven’t really researched deeper into the airbrush yet.

Yeah sometimes I go as low as 3-5psi for super fine/small and controlled lines.

I went with the Infinity CR Plus!

I heard that the .15 nozzle clogs really easily if you don't thin it down a lot. Many people went up to the .2 and that seemed like a good idea for me as well. So mine is coming with the .2 and .4 sizes. I can always move down to the .15 if I needed to.

I think between the smaller nozzle (My Badger is a .5), the improved trigger, the system to let you set the trigger tension, and the click to set that restricts trigger travel, it's going to make a big difference. We will see.

Plus, it looks cool.

Grats man, I’m jealous. It is sexy.

Turned out great. Crazy that’s your first attempt at that highlighting method. I feel dumb posting my janky shit now lol

My first commission. My friends son is starting his first D&D campaign tomorrow and he needed a character for it. So painted this for him and he’s paying me by mowing my lawn!

Yah that looks fantastic. Thanks for that NMM tutorial as well. I may try that next mini.

Here's where I'm at now. AK Interactive Ultra Matte Varnish over my base coat.

I'll have to try that varnish. I love to Matte everything down, also get those mold lines!
