Yeah, I agree with you. I notice the difference too.

Spartan06 Most rattle cans of primer(GW and army painter), will give your mini a rougher surface for the paint to adhere too. Vallejo airbrush primer will give you a very smooth surface. They both have the same effect once you start putting paint over it. I use the Vallejo airbrush primer so I can prime stuff indoors in the middle of winter, without hot boxxing the whole house.

I am using GW chaos black spray and Vallejo black surface primer via airbrush.
