Most likely I will be trying out:
- Painters Mark - Walmart brand of Primer. Abotu $.99 a can, smells really bad,but gives a nice light coat, and doesn't go on thick.
- Dupli-Color - Saw this one in No Quarter magazine, by one of the staff painters. If it is good enough for them, then I will give it a shot. At $4 a can, would be a major step up from $15 a can.
Oh, and just a little advise with using GW Black Primer - If the can is getting low, do not try to squeeze the last bit out of can. I primed an Impaler with the last from my last can. Lets just say that it went on a little thick. Made the model a little chunky - but was able to paint it out though.
Oh and a word on Privateer Press Support. I emailed them to let them know that I was missing the spell card from my Grim Argus Model, I have received a fast response (within 6 hours) from Andy, one of their reps, and they are shipping out a replacement! Man, I never received this type of backup from GW - Ever. Pretty glad that I am focusing on a game where the company recognizes that the customer comes first!
