Allright, so i bought a new can of spray primer to day, a can of Armory Black. Brought it home and then prceeded to lay a coat of it over my Eldar guardians, Autach, Warp Spiders, Fire Dragons, and Banshies.. Brought them back inside, and left for work, to let it all dry for a good.. 5 hours or so. When i got back to see how it was, the primer came out.. Fuzzy, and crumbly to the touch.. So.. did i just ruin all of my infantry with a bad can of primer. Or what might i do to try and fix this little inconvienience
Oh.. but i dont look so good with all those.. tentaclly things..
I've had issues with bad primer before, usually gritty stuff. If it crumbles off, just scrub it with a toothbrush. If that isn't enough, then soak them in Simple Green and then scrub.
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
I've had some bad times with Armory primer, and won't go back to it. I'm just too conservative and nervous about messing up my models, and so I stick with the GW stuff.
That sounds like you tried spraying too far away from the model. If the paint starts to dry before it hits the model, you can get just the sort of powdering you describe. Its a worse problem when spraying on hot, dry days.
To remedy, experiment by spraying at different distances and observing the results. If its hot where you are, then try spraying at night when its cooler. (Don't laugh! When I was in High School in Phoenix, this was a serious problem!)
Excellent points. Also be sure to let your minis dry in the temp they where sprayed in, if you take them from hot -> cold or vice versa while they are still wet, it has strange affects on the paint. Paint at cool times of the day and while its has average humidity, over dry or wet conditions also affects the primer. The distance is usually the biggest problem, too far and you get dusty, too close and you heavy coaks. I also found that if i shook my white too much it will spray around a lot more and less where i wanted it to go. but black never had this problem.
