It depends on your taste. You can use automotive primers, like Walmart's store brand, or Rustoleum, but they will have a grainier texture than modeling primers like Tamiya's Fine Surface Primer. I use both Rustoleum primer and Tamiya primer, depending on the quality of the figure and the kind of finish I want. But both with provide a good "tooth" for your finish color coats.

Prost!
