The New Vallejo Game Air

The Vallejo Game Air is a range of water-based, matte acrylic colors, developed especially for airbrushing. In the formulation of this range various new resins have been selected for qualities which up till now had not been achieved in water-based colors. The strength, resistance and covering power of Game Air is superior to any acrylic airbrush color currently available and also allows for application by brush to highlight the smallest details of the miniature. The pigments have been selected according to their degree of light-fastness and optimum micronization. The effects of washes and transparencies can be obtained by diluting the colors; all colors and varnishes can be mixed together and diluted with Airbrush Thinner.

Game Air Colors
The colors in the range have been selected in collaboration with modelers specialized in fantasy figures and dioramas, and the existing colors in the Game Color range have been taken into particular consideration. The names and shades of the most popular colors of Game Color have been maintained in Game Air, using the formulation and resins employed for Model Air. In the color chart we include a diagram of the most frequent color combinations: base color, light and shadow.

Game Air has exceptional performance on all materials. The adhesion of the colors on resin, plastic, steel and white metal is extraordinary. Moreover the surfaces do not require previous priming. Only in the case of a very dark base may it be useful to first apply a primer in order to increase the brightness of the final colors.

The copy above was according to the official Vallejo website. I will be testing this new range of colors on a few of my personal projects soon. If this is as strong or as scratch resistant as the Game Color ( or better ), The Game Air should eventually be my Vallejo acrylic paint of choice. 

The Vallejo Model Color Range is still the flagship color range of Vallejo with 218 colors, but the Game Air should be the most perfect color range for Gunpla! As they come ready for airbrushing right from the bottle. Bright, strong and the most scratch resistant acrylic paints in the market, these colors should bring life to my personal and commissioned projects soon!

Thanks as always for dropping by! Until next post guys! Just enjoy the hobby! :)
