Quick question. Sorry if this has been asked before. If any of you use primer, other than GW, which do you use? Does the spray have to be specifically for models?

NG Army (The Very Little WAAAGH) 6-1-0
I've used automotive primer (yes, the stuff they use on cars) with a fair degree of success.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
I'm with CBrate on this one, covers well and doesnt have dodgy batches as often
I saw in a post on here a while back that someone recommended QUICKCOLOR from Home Depot. I decided to give it a shot and test it for myself.
I did a little test and posted the results to my blog - Big D Minis: GW Primer Replacement
The bottom line was that I got good results with the black but that the white was not quite up to par.

Automotive primer is the way to go. It bonds better than anything and it has a very fine grain, which is good for getting a glassy-smooth finish on your car and also good for making sure the paint does not obliterate all the fine details of the miniature.
I've used Dupli-Color aand Krylon Automotive primers, black, white and gray, with excellent success.
Plus, the cost from your local hardware store is about half what GW charges for what is probably the same product.
