I have the four Shén miniatures mounted up, and am now about to prime them. But, I am considering a slightly different way, at least for the Diplomat.
On the left, you see the Diplomat and the feather cloak. My idea is to prime the cloak with white, as the feathers will be easier to paint with washes over white than black (my usual primer color), then prime the rest of the figure with black, as the scales will be easier to paint over black primer.
Has anybody tried this before?
