I picked up the White Dwarf with the article on painting Blood Angels with a black undercoat using the new Foundation Paints.
Has anyone tried this yet? I'm curious if its as easy as they make it look.
well you can use it as a base coat leaving black in the recesses .
Actually if you take the time, you can use black undercoat. There was an article about it somewhere a while ago (or a long time ago, can't remember). Anyway, it said that to get a good coverage with only a layer or two of red, coat the areas that will be red with a mix of skull-white and the red in question (Blood Red, Red Gore, etc).
It works pretty well. And you get to laugh at pink Marines half-way through :rofl:
I haven't tried the new foundation paints but I have heard good things about their ability to cover. I agree the red isn't very blood angel looking but if you use it as a base and add lighter reds you should do fine.
Otherwise I wouldn't prime black. While you can cover it up with several layers of red - why bother. There are many other tricks you can do to shave time and effort and still get a similar look. Focus more on little details and cleanliness to make a figure pop.
