So i finally got gloss black primer from gsw so i can do a review of my Vallejo Shifters and also one from gsw called Emerald Getaway.
Here are my test primers
And my test setup on necromunda bases.
Have to say doing this test really reminded me why i hate whites. Just doing those bases and the brush got clogged.
One thing i noticed the gsw paint was abit thicker so i think would apply well with regualr brush but also meant i did get some airbrush clogging with this straight out of bottle.
Here are the results this morning after drying.
A couple of caveats.. i was in a super rush and wanted to not have to clean my airbrush tonnes.. so ive opted for one thick layer rather than suggested several thin layers which has backfired abit on some of them.
Order from left to right;
GSW emerald getaway
Vallejo green/blue violet
Vallejo electric blue
Vallejo old gold/violet
Vallejo orange violet
And quick vid
I'm not wowed by them but I've really done a bad job on them by rushing so i dont think its an entirely fair trial.
First off gloss primer is the way to go... for a more impressive effect so ive not bothered to show the others.. But i do kinda like the whites with the blue ones. Think twilight shimmering yes the film lol. But kinda cool.
Ive ruined two Red/gold and orange/violet. Over pooling etc. so effect looks wrong.
I think electric blue has to be the best there. Very wow looking. Also the green blue violet very nice. Also looks like the vallejo is more shimmery than the gsw stuff. But i think i was able to apply the former more easily.
Definitely food for thought here regarding what to do with these.
