    Default Base Coating Resen vs. Metal and/or Plastic

    I'm relatively new to the painting miniatures with my initial dive into metal and plastic miniatures. I've been using a series of colored acrylic spray paint to basecoat them and I've been pretty happy with the results, especially if there's a predominance of a single color (like on a Blood Angels MkIII Land Raider). I've recently picked up a few minis made of resin and am curious if there's a different recommendation for the base coat phase or if they need base coating at all with the fine features these minis have. Any recommendations? Thanks.

    Hey there, welcome. You can use exactly the same procedures for resin.

    Most painters these days will recommend using a primer as the first step in painting a model, and this would generally be irrespective of whether they were subsequently basecoated like you're doing. Some paints of this type will in essence function as a primer, but generally speaking true primers are stronger and bond better to the model material (be it plastic, metal or resin) than any regular paint.
