This is a question that I myself have been pondering. My dad says that you can use like paint remover (or was it nail polish remover?) to get it off but I am still dubious. I am looking forward to hearing from other people.

Goto the painting section of this forum. There's a pinned article about stripping.Originally Posted by GrandMasterNemesiiii
I personally recommend Castrol Super Clean, but goto the painting section for more ideas

Get a thing of vinegar and an old tooth brush. Put the model in the vinegar and let it sit a few minutes and then scrub it and let it dry. Repeat until finished. Don't leave them in too long though and be sure to let them dry of the plastic can start to melt.

Castrol Super Clean. You can find it at any AutoZone, O' Reilly's, heck maybe even Wal-Mart.
Great stuff. Soak your boys for about 30 minutes, take a toothbrush to them, and you're ready to rinse and paint. Works equally well on plastic or metail minis. Also will weaken glue bonds if you leave your stuff in overnight.
It will also take off non-acrylic type paints too if you basecoated in an enamel by accident or something.
Doesn't melt plastic or take off any of the detail. It's the best stuff for the job, believe me!
We all carry on,
When our brothers in arms are gone.
So raise your glass high
For tomorrow we die,
And return from the ashes you call.
Just raid your mothers cabinent, or wifes, and use a bottle of oven cleaner and toothbrush. However you need to wear rubber gloves when doing this because the oven cleaner will eat through several layers of skin and plastic gloves don't last to long either.

if you use nail polish you will lose a fair bit of detail on your model.
I always thought that GW paints were water based. So putting the model in hot water should get the paint off
