I was about to try an airbrush for the basecoat on my new space marines, (I hear it comes out nice and smooth), but theres a few things I'm unclear about. Hoping for some feedback from someone who has done this kind of thing.
First, should I prime the models first? If so, should I use a can primer or a brush primer applied through the airbrush? (I can only assume that I shouldn't brush it on)
As far as the paint, it's obviously going to be watered down, the question is; How much? Should I add soap to reduce surface tension or does it come out better with just water?

Was going to answer but all answers are as I gave in the linked post (thaks Salmon Thief)
As for priming, I always do this with a spray can anyway, so no need to use the airbrush for this
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I would probably recommend against adding a brush on primer through an airbrush. If it dried it would probably be very undesireable for the airbrush.
