I made my final purchases for my Primaris force. I had to include at least one flying model simply because they look so cool in the Space Marine blue color. I don't know how effective my army lists will actually be on the tabletop, but I built this force mostly for fluff and aesthetics and not competitive builds.

The Stormhawk is simply a very cool model! It can also be built as a gunship alternate. And no matter which way you build it, you are left with a ton of left over bits and components for converting other stuff or doing a kit bash.

I spray primed most of my Primaris force in Citadel's Macragge Blue, including all of my Primaris foot soldiers, tank and dreadnoughts.

However for this model I wanted to try out The Army Painter's Ultramarine Blue. I bought both the spray and the matching bottle of liquid paint for touch-ups.

The Army Painter colored spray primers are good, but not as good as Citadel's in my opinion. Army Painter has a kind of peculiar grain to it. Good coverage and the color is excellent but I have to say that I think Citadel's blue is better and has a finer spray texture to it. I also find that the Citadel spray has better coverage and smoothness in the finish of the paint.

Here's some pics of the built model spray primed in the Army Painter Blue. Looks pretty good for a base coat and I've found that Army Painter colored primers are very tough and stick very well to plastic. They take heavy drybrushing and washes very well and do not rub off easily.

After I'm done painting this I'll post some more photos of it side by side with some of the stuff done in the Citadel Blue so both colors can be seen side by side for comparison.

Nice looking army. I prefer building to fluff as well. One reason I generally walked away from 40K.
I'm a huge fan of Army Painter primers over any other brand. I've not tried GW's branded color primers in a few years. I may have to give it a go after I've finished my current stash of AP cans.
Thanks for sharing!
