Ok, here's the situation. I'm starting to build a Marine army, and am going Raven Guard; so my main color will, of course, be black.
I've primered all of my models using Black primer. Now the question is should I paint Chaos Black over the primer, or just leave it? Obviously, leaving it will be quicker, but will it hurt the appearance when I try to do highlighting or other techniques?
I would say just leave it then do some drybrush or highlighting. (Y)
Definitely leave it. Primer looks much more even and better. If u think the paint isnt thick enough, just do another layer of primer.

Believe it or not, but Chaos Black actually looks totally different from Citadel primer black. It has more of a glossy feel.
Me, personally, I prefer the Primer Color cause it's a matte black, however, sometimes you need a glossy color for something like the boots on your officer models. (Since the don't get into the dirt much...)
i would leave it and dry brush and then add detail, if you what a gloss finish then use a gloss varnish.
If it lives it will be consumed
it depends on wether you prefer the glossy or mat look , i likem to go over in watered down chaos black , but in the rule book they painted nids black leaving the undercoat and just sprayed on a few coats of varnish and it looked cool .

i just spray my 'nids and highlight, and that looks cool, alot better than when i used the paint in a pot!and yes, i do do more than spray and highlight, 'cos there's armour, eyes teeth etc...
if you are reading this signature, then you are wasting you're time, and i am wasting my time by writing it, so run along now, jimmy, run along.
The primer tends to chip off if you bang your model against another. I'd paint over it even if its the same color.
Sidenote: I will say that this chipped primer effect looks cool on certain models...I have a plasma cannon servitor who was half painted and got stuffed in with some unpainted models. Primer chipped off of his hoses and wires to reveal the shiny pewter underneath and he actually looks kinda cool.
