Does it matter what colour you undercoat in?
Before i was undercoating my IG in black cos i didn't have to paint things like boots and belts etc but recently i've been doing them in white cos i had run out of chaos black and just wanted to know if it actually mattered which colour you undercoated in?

well wolf, imo black is always the better option. you can build up colours from black as they get lighter. also, the white spray gives a light grey effect imo when you use it, so i'd stick with black.
white smells nicer tho
White Primer will make colors stands out more, also bring out depth in shading. When I use white primer I black line befor putting over the basecoat, it make shading easier.
Black primer makes colors darker, making shading incredibly simple. if you plan on applying over lighter colors, like yellow. Make sure to cover over the black, with skull white befor putting on the yellow.
Grey primer is in the middle, giving a color that is neither light nor dark.
In my opinion White seems to work for me best, but don't ever let anyone else tell you one is better than the other, because it is a matter of opinion.
If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldnâ€™t the Emperor have given them wings?
Usually I make a quick decision about undercoats.
As Grey wolf said white brings out colour better so anything showcase, even if its a dark model, I undercoat white.
If I am troops I switch over to undercoating black for dark models but stay with white for light models, like haldir's elves etc.
I always undercoat black (but that's mainly because my armies all have dark colour schemes).
You can tell when something has been undercoated black or white, but I personally believe it comes out better looking with a black coat. It allows you to build up the brightness of the colours, so it allows for alot of definition.
Black is good for chaos armies that need to be dark and gritty. White is best for armies like white scars (duh) as well as any army that isn't at least 90% black. Black Templars would definetly need black undercoat, for example. White parts will be very difficult to paint, though.
