My general technique is black primer which is then heavily dry brushed with white to show detail and help the following block painting be brighter. This seems to work for pretty much everything ….. except my white uniformed Austrians, which too absolutely ages to bring up to a good white.

For the second Austrian regiment I used a white primer and the job was massively easier in getting the white finish, though of course a thinned wash followed by highlights is still necessary.
