Mostly GW white -not in the poll. Black only for figures with lots of metal work.

The idea of prebasing minis has got me thinking about the whole process I use to paint. I've always used GW or Armory black primer, but I've bought Gesso to try it out. I'd try black auto primer if it were recommended and available locally. I'd even give standard spray paint a shot if it were recommended. So what do you use for priming? What brand do you use? What store carries it? Also, since this poll actually has practical application, what nation do you live in? After all it would be silly to look for a Danish brand of auto primer if you're in Australia.
