Prime with white and wash with black

I was watching 12 Different Ways to Prime Your Wargaming Miniatures for inspiration -- aka the continuation of my procrastination and my life generally getting in the way of my hobby -- and so tried a few of the painter's suggestions. The one I really liked was to prime with white and then wash with black.

I only washed where there was a transition and the larger areas that were intended to be dark. I also washed with acrylic and not oil paint. I think it worked well. And WAY better than Army Painter's expensive "dip".

If you find the knight's sword send me a note.
