I wouldn't buy Citadels black primer, it is much too expensive. You can
just buy any common automotive primer, though black is a harder color to
find. You can try and find black primer at an art supply store. And
it'll usually be about half the price of citadel.

Their hobby paints however are very good, I play warhammer 40,000 and
have found that they work just as good on Gundam models.
