HOBBY: A Primer on Primer

Guest Columnist 5 Minute Read Apr 30

I am writing this for those Warhammer painters who have difficulty with spray primers, and/or are looking to get an understanding on how they work. In my experience bad spray primer results are much like auto accidents. 4% of the time is it the fault of the primer and 96% of the time is it […]
