Was wondering what this spray gun is? Is it like a sprayer to change paint into a form of primer?

Was wondering what this spray gun is? Is it like a sprayer to change paint into a form of primer?Primer is meant to have additives that help it and subsequent layers of "normal" paint stick to the model better. The GW spray gun is just a normal single action airbrush and won't add anything to the paint by itself.

I personally use "normal" paint in my own airbrush to undercoat models and I've not yet had a problem (I've done hundreds of models both figures and with this method) but your mileage may vary.

I love this, the Gw show us a new product unique to them and they go all the way and punt it to us via white dwarf..........and what happens its doesnt work, so much for the high standards of quality they have....

well the fact that they pulled it before launch and binned the whole lot shows that actually they do have high standards

Exactly, it's showing the standard of quality they want from the product. There was a manufacturing defect in the first lot and instead of just releasing it anyway and going, 'oops, ha-ha, isn't that awkward?' when a certain number of them broke, they just recalled the whole lot.

I think it was safety concerns over the hose connector or something.

Yeah i agree that it was a sensible decision on GW's part to pull the gun. It gives the company a reputation for quality, and helps justify the price of their products to the consumer. If they can't have a reputation for being cheap, at least they can have a reputation of quality.

No, there was a defect in one of the parts that caused the tube to come lose when under pressure in some of the guns, so GW recalled the whole lot.

Awesome, that's good news to all. It came and went before our store even ordered any.
