quick question; how long should i wait after priming my models before i can start painting them.
That is not dead which may eternal lie,
for in strange aeons even death may die.
If it is a light coat and not too cold you can probably start within two or three hours.

Read the can. It should give you all the information you need. It might vary from brand to brand.
While most paint/primers dry within minutes to a few hours - they may take 24-72 hours to cure. While you probably won't see any negative problems from painting over it once it dries - I would still go by the suggestion on the can and wait the full amount of time.

I've started on models as soon as 30 minutes after priming with no real problems. (GW primer)
It really depends on how humid the area you are in is, and the brand of primer.
I almost always try to let it sit at least over night before starting on them though.

I've found some people go years with only primer coats on their figures...
I usually leave mine over night but have waited as little as 10-15 minutes without disaster (although I recommend at least 1-2 hours).
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Its good to see people giving it plenty of time to cure...I've found some people go years with only primer coats on their figures...
I usually wait around one to two hours. I've never had any negative effects from doing this.
But I call to God, and the LORD saves me.
I've used GW's white & black primer both and started painting no longer than 10 or 15 minutes after I sprayed with no negative effects.
