i usually use Chaos Black for an under coat for my Space Wolf army.
what would be better? Chaos Black or Skull White?
i think for space wolves, both undercoats would work just fine. white undercoats works awsome for eldar and tau. i like using white but its a lot harder painting your models because if you leave any parts unpainted, they stand out and look unprofessinoal. black is much more forgiving.
Warhammer is expensive.
It depends on what colour your planning to paint over it.
Mostly I use black undercoat on say wooden parts and on most chaos space marines.
Then again I usually use white undercoat on brown colours on say WHFB beastmen.
You have to choose the the undercoat in companion with the finishing colour.
But you can use both, although the black undercoat will tend to give a darker finish to the other colours.

I WAS IN THE IMPERIAL (Norwegian) GUARD!
I use black, just because if you need something painted black you can just leave it primed.
Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

Tha same thing goes for white too, prime white and leave it as is. But you could use a gray wash on the white to spice it up a bit.

My elvish name is Maeglin Meneldur.
I use gray spray undercoat on da Boyz then I paint em black for a darker, greener, an meaner look. I use gray so it is easier to see if I miss any spots with my coat of black paint. Sometimes I use black [ When I run out of gray ] then use a wash of black over top to get full coverage. But white or black work out just as well.
Lighter undercoats give a lighter colored model. But any undercoat will do.

I use white primer, but that in combination with a rather unusual technique:
After priming i create the base color by applying several coats of thinned ink. This is already shaded and usually results in a nice, "even" color.
I used this for that mini (sorry, i don't have a better pic right now):
That's white primer, then some thinned green ink with chestnut ink, and then again some brown ink. After this, i just did some highlights with rotting flesh and silver.
It's not 'eavy metal standart, but done in a few hours - efficient.
Hey, that's a fine model, man! Just in a few hours? Wickedâ€¦ :huh:
NICE TYPHUS MODEL!
In general black is better for new people to the game, and for making the colors appear darker (obviously).
White is great for making you a better painter. Base your models white, and your painting skills will get a lot better. Also, it's great for bright colors (reds especially), although it's terrible for painting metal on.
