Well, the spay paint I understand.

But, the drybrushing, no. What type of old brush, toothbrush?
What kind of lighter color paint, modeling paint?
What's an AA brush?

Yeh, that titan of yours is a killing machine. But, I know how to take
him down. We tied last time, next time.......we'll see.

Thanks, James and Peter!
