Also depends on the opaqueness of the paints. Paints are becoming better at this, but for some colours (e.g. yellows) it is still difficult to find a good covering paint that can paint solidly over black in one layer. Or I should upgrade my collection of paints, I’ll leave that as a possibility as well …
But anyway, I use an undercoat as the dominant colour of the figure. I have a whole series of cans of various colours to undercoat figures – brown, green, grey, blue … and I simply use the dominant colour of the uniform.

Tried to paint straight onto primer a few times but it did not turn out as good as using a spray basecoat
