    Hello good ppl, im a fan of black undercoat and have just started to paint up my GKs I have no experience with other undercoats then the oldschool Black and white coats..

    would anyone recomend the boltgun metal spray to paint GKs, Iron warriors, Silver skulls,necrons or whatever metal heavy army?

    Since its only the regular armour thats metal and the rest of the details are in other colors Im afraid that the details will be harder to paint with 2 coats.. what do you guys say?

    I wouldn't.
    Apparently the metal sprays really do not look good on GKs.
    I use mithril silver mixed with a small amount of blue ink drybrushed over a black undercoat. Then go over it with watered down black ink.

    I quit using all sprays. To get proper coverage I had to spray one side, roll the guy over, spray the other, spray from the top... you get the picture. It was actually just as fast to paint them by hand, and much better control of the paint. Also, I found the sprays didn't always match exactly when I did touch ups with the hand paint.

    For primer I use solvent (enamel) based ultra flat paint. It really holds well to the miniature and I NEVER get the dreaded "fuzzy finish" that the sprays sometimes give.

    Well, took less time than anticipated.
    I got two pictures and here they are.
    Bear in mind that my digital camera is not that good a quality.

    Thanks Volatile! very nice of you to post pics! I use your information in my experiments The quest for fast metal painting continues! - Right now i spend about 2 hours a model and thats far to much time..

    wolf - I usually spray my minis on a pedistal that makes me able to spray from below and from all sides at once.. it helps but time wise it takes some extra time to.. i cant spray that many minis at once you see.

    I use black primer, then undercoat in Boltgun Metal, drybrush in Mithril Silver, and detail in other colors. What do you think?
