POLL DESCRIPTION

One of the common questions new gamers ask is: "How should I prime?" There are lots of answers. We thought we'd find out what you think.

(Select the technique you most commonly use.)

don't prime

I don't prime before painting.

base color prime

I prime the figure in whatever is the main color for the final figure.

don't paint

I don't paint - so I don't prime, either.

grey prime

I prime with grey paint, the best compromise between white and black paint.

white prime

I prime with white or off-white paint, which makes the colors brighter.

other prime

I prime my figures, but don't use any of the techniques listed.

black prime

I prime with black or very dark paint, which hides flaws.
