Bones and Vallejo primer

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I've been away from the forums for a while, but lately I've had a renewed desire to jump back in!

 

I've picked up a few Bones minis (I will have a ton more coming with the new Kickstarter), a bunch of Reaper paints, some Citidel shades, some decent brushes, a tone of nice bases, and 3 different kinds/sizes of Gale Force 9 basing grit - I'm ready to start painting!

 

Here's the question ... I've been watching a bunch of YouTube demos on prepping and painting Bones. I know there are many opinions of priming (to do it or not, what kind to use, etc). I'm leaning toward priming my Bones with the grey Vallejo primer. I'm interested in hearing from folks who have used Vallejo primer on their Bones and how it went. 

 

Thanks!!!

I do use Vallejo Brush on primer (never spray primer onto Bones, unless it's brush on primer through an air brush) and it's doing what I want it to. No complaints.

I'm pretty new to this hobby though, so I haven't tried out all the primers to give a good comparison.

I don't think acrylic-based primers have any issue, it's only the organic solvent-based ones.

I use Vallejo airbrush primers, and they're fine.

I've also used a Krylon primer/paint for plastic ("with Fusion Technology") - it comes in a variety of camo colors, and has worked great on Bones, as well as other plastics.

Thanks everyone - I should have specified I definitely meant Vallejo brush on primer.

I've been doing some research and it seems like there are a couple different kinds of Vallejo brush on primer. Can anyone point me toward a specific Vallejo brush on primer that works well?

 

Thanks again!!!
