I am in the process of starting to paint my winged hive tyrant.
the normal color scheme is a black primer, followed by a red mix for carapace parts.
now for the wings ( plastic balrog wings btw ) I was thinking of doing the arms Black, like the rest of the body.
now for the wings I was thinking skull white, and washing some skull white / earth color on it.
now should I go for the white primer on the wings or the black ?
white I think, since most of the wings will be white but will the black paint stick good to the arms ?
thanks in advance

If the wings are going to be white, white primer is the only reasonable choice.white I think, since most of the wings will be white but will the black paint stick good to the arms ?
If you were going from black to white you'd have to paint numerous coats of a lighter color on the areas you want to paint white so that the black doesn't show through.
white primer may be the simple and reasonable choice but i would suggest priming with black. when painting white over back in a texture such as wings, it looks better to layer grays over the black, it gives the white more depth, and doesent involve having to do multiple coats of one color. start with either codex gray or the foundation paint grey, then do fortress gray then white, it gives some of the crevases in the model more depth with a darker base color.
