I'm starting up a 'Guard army and have been looking around for some basecoat sprays to significantly cut down the amount of basecoating I need to do. Came across The Army Painter who do a variety of colours. Now, I know they have some pictures on their website, but I was hoping some of you have used it before (and taken some pictures).
I'm particularly interested in the Leather Brown, Army Green and Desert Yellow. Does anyone have any example pictures of Guardsmen, Space Marines or anything after an undercoat of this stuff? How well does it work with the GW washes? Should I be priming Black/White before using the spray or does it stick well anyway?
Thanks in advance
jawaballs a painter on youtube said he has officially switched to army painter primer after using GW primer for a long time
I use Army Painter black and white sprays. It's cheaper and for some reason I like it better. Worth a try !
I should learn to read the first post first ! Sorries !
The coloured sprays Army Painter produces are of the same consistency as the normal sprays so they should stick to pure plastic like any other spray. I'm very confident they will work with the washes. Like the dull, yellow one (wotchacallit?) would work with Devlan Mud etc.
I have a friend who uses the red spray on his Blood Angels, without any other basecoat and they look good enough, although his skills in painting are just progressing. Try them.
it's colored primer that is better or just as good as GW spray
what else can i say
What I'm looking for are mostly pictures of the results of the sprays, in particular the Army Green and Desert Yellow. I'd like to see what they look like in actual GW models and the effect of washes on them. Maybe the original post didn't make that very clear.
I use Army Painter - it covers a lot better than GW sprays IMHO so you get a bit more for your money. It does seem slightly thicker when wet but as long as you don't hold it down over an area or go over the same bit more than one or two times between coats it works just fine.
