I use Halfords matt spray paints - white or black depending what I'm painting. Usually the latter.

badger stynylrez is excellent through an air brush (I live in an exceedingly hot and dry climate so rattlecan primers are less than ideal for 9 months of the year. I prime inside using my airbrush. My favorite primer is gesso, brush on or spray on. The downside to gesso is that it tends to be fragile, so you have to be careful with your minis until the sealer is on.

I use brush on gesso, usually comes in black, white or grey. Never miss any areas like you do with sprays, dries to a nice tight and thin layer, perfect for painting on top of. I havn't used anything else in the last 15 years or so.

For what it's worth, I brush on humbrol enamel which has been thinned down with turpentine to get the paint into the recesses. After that is dry I then spray paint over the top with a cheap enamel. I always use black undercoat.
Like the other guys have said, be careful of the weather when spray painting especially with varnish.
