Hello everyone. I will eb soon getting myself a compressor for my air gun which has long been out of use. The question s however, paints. Which paints are best to use with a spray gun? Also how watered down should they be? Or should i be using some other form of thinner? Any help would be great!

There is paint you can get that is specially formulated for an airbrush. I found some at a art supply store. However you should be able to use any GW or other hobby brand paint in the airbrush as long as you thin it enough to not clog up the opening.
Just keep in mind that with the airbrush the paint will be a lot thinner and to avoid pooling up on the model do several quick coats allowing a moment for each coat to dry. It should dry fairly quick but what you want to avoid is heavily spraying the figures. This will cause pooling and loss of detail...

THe Foundation paints were designed with the air gun in mind, and if you should be able to get the foundations to spray out flawlessly. I have seen people add in other colours to the foundations as well, and have them work extremely good, such as adding in Boltgun Metal to Fenris Grey to make his greyknights.
