Eeew, think paint!
That's what I told myself after I finished basecoating my exorcist. I thought I'd gone past the old days of thick paint, and wattered my paint down, but you can see distinctive areas of paint build, as well as brush-stroke patterns, on my tank.
I assume an airbrush is probably a good way to avoid this... to avoid the brush-stroke patterns being visible, at the very least.
Does anyone have tips on how I can avoid these two things on my future tanks though? It looks really tacky. I'm not sure why it exists, since my infantry miniatures base coated just fine, so it can't be me being completely dumb and using super-thick paint... Maybe if not airbrushing I just have to apply like, 3-4 layers of very watered down paint to avoid it? Not particularly stoked about that many layers for a base coat... but if it's what it takes.
(Also, is there any good way to mask this once it's been done, or is my one tank a little bit FUBAR? ... it's not terrible and I'm not trying to win any painting contests, but it is a bit disapointing. I wanted/want this army to be my best yet.)
