Product Review: GW Skull White Spray Primer

Good ol Games Workshop Skull White Spray Primer. Ive had this can for a while now and finally found a use for it when I began to work on my Protectorate of Menoth army a few days ago. Before I get to far into the review, here are a couple factoids about it.

Price = 15.00 USD on the website
Can Size = 10oz/400ml

Now that we have the pricing and size info out of the way, lets get to the review shall we?

To sum it all up, this product does not deliver at all. I am extremely disappointed by the quality of this primer. It really is a spray chalk and not a spray paint. Now I know Spray Paint is already somewhat dry before it even hits the mini, but take a look at the pic below and you can see what I mean.

If you look closely you can also see some shiny spots where the primer has just rubbed off from handling the arm once. Unacceptable in my book.

I tried to press on with it anyways, seeing as how thats all the primer I have right now. It didnt work at all. Im just going to have to strip my minis and restart. Im going to Michaels on Thursday to pick up some gray gesso and give that a whirl.

Overall, this spray primer gets a whopping 1 out of 5 stars from me. Never again will I buy this primer.
