Haha, I know that feeling. Got a lot of terrain that I find finished, where others have come with 'helpful' advice (on the building I posted I got the advice that "it would look great with some guttering" - of course it would, but I don't have time, material or energy to fix that...)

Cool miniature, I forgot to write! Have you tried white brush-on primer? Might work better if spray gets grainy.

Also: Love your document. I love in-world documents and one of the best things in the hobby is writing little snippets about the world in my games.

If the humidity and temperature are good and you have tried a couple different cans (meaning weather and cans themselves are not the issue) and your primer is grainy (worst case you end up with pilling and tooth on your surfaces) it could be you are spraying with the can too far away from your model.  If the atomized paint travels too far before it hits the model it will literally start to dry in the air before it even hits the model causing the mottled surface.  Try bringing your can closer to the figure and see if that helps.  When in close don't spray long or you will flood the figure with paint.  Find the sweet spot (close but not too close) and you should be fine.  Spray short bursts with passes.  Sometimes mass primings will have this occur to models on either end of the line because the sprayer got sloppy keeping the can parallel to the surfaces to be painted.  Hope this helps.  The MO still looks good but hopefully this will help you get a smoother prime to work over top of.

House #2

I'm still working on my second house...might be HQ for ATLAS (at times) or a cultist enclave... :)

hopefully you see how it relates (architecturally) to my (prior) Victorian row house...

Ground floor...











to do: second floor (underway), roof/attic, basement (underway)...

:)

PS I know I should add a mini for scale... :|

PPS working on VUK "alerting the authorities" / "anonymous tip off" figures too...in anticipation, of course...

PPPS "what's in the [murder] bag [box]?!"...pretty sure "vampiric cabal" will show up

PPPPS a great LA building from 1893 and featured in "Blade Runner" (SE corner of 3rd/Broadway in downtown LA):



..and if u want an occult connection...
