Captain Reads-A-Lot-On-The-Internet: "But shouldn't I buy white primer for some minis, and black primer for others?" the overly-cautious mini painter asks. "I've read on Dakka Dakka that white primer is better for some miniatures because of highlighting effects and..."
Yes, okay, it is better for some miniature painting styles to base-coat with white. That is, if you're already painting minis and know how to properly shade and highlight separately. But you aren't already painting minis yet, are you? No, you're taking advice from a guy who likes to mix Monster Energy Drink and Rum while he paints, so take it from his drunk-yet-caffeinated ass (me). I've played around with white primer, and personally, I absolutely hate it. It makes painting a mini take four times as long, because there's no automatic shading of recessed areas when you use white primer. Black primer covers up your mistakes, or things you overlook and forget to paint on minis. So 'Always use black primer' is my motto. Things go much faster with black primer, no matter what you're painting.

|I love these things. Cheap as hell and last forever.|
