Before painting your Battlescale Models we would advise that each piece is washed in warm water with a little added detergent. This will remove any small dust particles and any residue from the models’ surface.
Allow your pieces to dry thoroughly before attempting to paint.
Although some painters do prefer to use a primer prior to painting it isn’t necessarily required and the models can simply be based coated with a darker undercoat before dry brushing and detailing.
We would recommend the use of acrylic paints.
