I am just getting back into minis since putting the hobby down in the late 80s. Guess what? They are no longer 100% lead or pewter. My problem is that I read on a website, that many primers will actually "melt" or harm plastic minis....
Any suggestions for a spray primer for my skellies??
I was really worried about this too since my only prior experience with modelling was resin. But I used Krylon white on my skeleton warriors without harm. I kept the can between twelve and eighteen inches away, sprayed in passes, and shook the can frequently. The coverage wasn't perfect, but it was enough for the basecoat to go over.
So Krylon at least is fairly safe and cheap.
EDIT: This topic may get more and better replies if its moved to the painting topic.
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains
Do you have a color preference for your primer?
GW's Chaos Black and Skull White primers will be fine, even though they nail you on price ($10 for a can of spray paint, ugh).
Testor's also makes a grey primer that's designed for plastic model kits, so it'll be fine for your minis.
