I didnt know were to post this so here goes.
I have 20 ultramarines terminators that i want to repaint, what would be the best thing to strip the paint of without causing any damage to the terminator itself??
I want to make them deathwing so wanna completey respray and paint them.
Using simple green seems to be the way to go at the moment, i use it and i can say that it work really well, it loosens the paint so it'll come off with only a little scrub, and causes no harm to the model itself, plastic or metal!
here is a link to a tutorial made by the all knowing Tekore *linky*

Hmmm I know that 3M makes a paint stripper that's useable on plastic. Can't remember the name exactly but it's like spray/foam you spray on your model, let soak for a around 30 minutes and you can just rub/rinse it off with an old toothbrush. If you use that stuff, use dishwashing gloves, that stuff is nasty toxic, smells horribly but gets the job done without melting your plasic. I used to use it plenty without any hassle. Just ask around at your locak DIY store for anything that cans trip acryllic paint and not melt plastic.
I just used simple green to take the paint off some terminators I got used. it works real well. pretty cheap too.
If the termies are the old metal, simply remove them from their base and toss them into a bowl of Paint thinner leave them there for a couple hours, then remove them and use a soft bristle tooth brush...
The paint will come off easily..
If plastic, the above mentioned tips are best.
