I was wondering if Chaos Black is considered a primer or can be used as one. My local shop sells it in a rattle can and they recommend it as a primer but Iv seen a Citadel black primer and am curious if I should use that or the Chaos Black.
I have used Chaos Black Primer.....They just changed the label recently to a blue one. I'll look at all my spray cans.
it should say on the can if its a primer or not. There is a difference, which is barely noticable, but it shouldnt be a problem if you seal your models after painting. What the difference is, one is meant to stick to plastic, and one is meant to stick to lots of stuff. I have found that the normal paint chips easier, but if you are in a situation were your models get chipped that much, something is wrong...i have noticed that the difference is so small, that you cant really notice it. One has a more shiney end color, and one is more dull color.(the primer is the duller one)

Primer is designed to grip to the surface it is applied to. Regular paint may not have that sticking power and could lift up over time - even with a seal you run that risk.
I would always recommend some form of primer. The cost difference is neglegible if any so why run the risk?
