Nothing depresses you like bad primer...

I spent an hour adding a few more layers of white on parts of my land raider for the Ultramarines. I made it a little runny to give a better shine on the areas and to show less of my brush stokes.  It wasn’t long before I realized that I could see where the Armory primer has owned me.  The white slowly spread into areas where the primer went on clumpy and I didn’t notice. 

Unfortunately, I think my Ultramarines are more of what not to do when painting.  I am finishing them up and using them as an example of why I am still learning to paint.  Occasionally, I have flashes of brilliance and then disaster.  

Next week, I will pick up some Army Painter primer.  I love the stuff and the humidity doesn’t mess it up.   I will pay the extra in order to not have to sand shit down.
