Not touched my minis for a long time, today I bought a can of whatever White Knight Squirt has morphed into... and it was terrible. Seemed to be very high pressure and the paint pooled quite a bit. Back in the day (5+ years ago) Squirts never gave me a dud can of white or black matte base paint. Has the product gone this bad or did I just get a bad can/conditions?

I use the GW sprays. They are expensive and way overpriced, but they do a great job and I know I'll get a smooth finish.

I used to use white knight, but the price difference was not worth risking my models on the off chance I got a bad spray.

I’d sooner have to buy another can after a bad test spray than give gw more money tongue.gif

The can I have is doing the job okay, but it certainly feels different to what I remember. Slightly more fluid and enamely, seems to run a little more...

im still using squirts but the cans have changed.

The white 'undercoat' is still quite good but the black comes out VERY quickly. You really have to be very careful to move the spray quickly across the model otherwise it would just drown the model.

Im not sure if I would buy anoter can of black, i might try another brand but it is still usable but you dont have much control due to the amount of paint coming out.

I'm an expert in the use of undercoats on miniatures, and I always use Tamiya...
