Hobby: Vallejo Primer

Well after getting completely jacked off with crappy primer & undercoat sprays I have finally bitten the bullet and got some primer to run through my airbrush.

I picked up both Black and Grey Vallejo Primer to give it a whirl. I will be sticking to black primer for my Crimson Fist marines but will be shifting to grey for any new projects. The primer is ‘airbrush ready’ so should not need any thinning to use. It can also be brushed on as well.

I will let you know how it goes but at $15 for 60ml from a local hobby store - Hobbyrama it seemed reasonable if it works; especially given that it’s just over $30 for about 200ml. WIN!

I have read some mixed reviews on the product but I figure it can’t be worse then the issues I have had with the crappy GW sprays and other ones I have been trying to use. In fact I expect to see an improvement. Will keep you posted – it might even be time for my first review. :)

  1. Hm, I'd be interested to see how you get on with this.

    I personally use Halfords (its an automotive supply chainstore in the UK) grey primer, and it works very well for me. I've also used gesso on display figs.

    The idea of somehting I can airbrush is very appealing, but I'd be worried about coverage and adhesion, especially on resin say.
