I'd wondered if there was a cheap option for undercoat sprays and this curiosity led me to find myself in the local cars spares shop looking at their massive variety of paints. Clearly most of them are unsuited for any wargaming related use but the little old tin in the picture caught my eye. Oh yes it did. ;-)
Matt White acrylic spray 400ml for £5.49.
Lets compare this to GW spray.
Matt White acrylic spray 400ml for £9.50rrp.
One little old fashion plastic gretchin got the vote to be the first
The gretchin is still smiling! So was I once I had tested a few normal figure paints, washes and inks on him a couple of days later. Its fine. Perfectly fine for undercoating figures and at half the price.....well I'm sold.
It actually even smells like GW undercoat and part of me would not be surprised if it is the same manufacturer behind both brands ultimately.
