are space wolves supposed to be undercoated with black or white because i have a squad of red corsairs former grey hunters and they were undercoated with chaos black(and yes they are second hand) and when i tried to paint on space wolves grey it looks crappy. do i need a second coat or an ink or something? someone tell me plz
They can be undercoated with either color. Using black as a base, you have to layer on several coats of thinned grey to completely cover the black. Leaving black in the recesses and joints. You build up the lighter colors on the higher points of the miniature.
Using white, you have to wash in shading colors in the low points and blackline the joints to achieve shading. Essentially the reverse of painting on black.
After trying both, my preference is white primer. But that's just my preference, plenty of people paint on black primer. Here's how I do mine: Painting SW
Do a search here on the Space Wolves, here on LO and you will find all the information you need from past posts.
If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldnâ€™t the Emperor have given them wings?
I used shadow grey for my undercoat - the spray paint variety. As you are going to be predominantly painting that colour on top it makes sense, that is if you are using citadel colours.
You'd probably be best stripping the other paint job off first, but that is a whole new thread, which already exists, and the problems that can go with it.
Space Wolves are badasses that operate just barely within the rules.
13th Co. didn't even know there were rules applying to how badass they could be.
... and Daemonhunters make it three - now just need a spare room to store it all!!!
