I've got a whole bunch of hormagaunts that I think I want to give a different color scheme. They've already been sprayed with camo-green primer. I'd like them to be primed with white, instead. Should I try and strip them with simple-green, or just spray over them with skull white? I don't want to loose detail, but I don't really know if a third coat would make much of a difference.
Same deal with my fexes, warriors, tyrants, biovores, etc... they've all been sprayed camo green, and I'd rather have the undercoat be skull white.
Edit: The tyrants are metal, but two of them have whfb plastic dragon wings... not sure how that will affect things. Total models are:
3 tyrants (2 flying)
4 tyrant guard
I'm also getting another 52 hormies off ebay - that's my reason for deciding to revise my color scheme
if you did paint over it would most defenatly make the model look thick and get rid of the detail , its not like a third coat , its a third lots of coats , you are completely repainting it again wich would mean you would be using lots of coats to make it look right again . so i would strip it first to preserve the detail .

Definatly strip it. When I was 9 I had a squad of SM, and painted over them about 3 or 4 times not including primer, I just now bothered to strip and re-paint them. Before that they looked like blobs of play-doh

Right now, all that's on the models is a single layer of camo green primer... would you really recommend I strip that? There isn't a base coat, there aren't any highlights, just one layer of camo green. The paint scheme I was envisioning was white spray undercoat, bleached bone base coat, gore-red for carapace and hooves, snot green for eyes, then brush on minwax for details... I just wonder if the camo-green would make a significant difference. I suppose I could strip them with simplegreen... just leave them in for a few days/weeks/months...

If it's just 1 camo green primer, i dont think its necessary to strip them. Undercoat primers aren't that thick anyway, so you won't loose detail.
i was thinking of repainting my swarm too, but i don't know how i should strip them as i've heard some paint strippers melt GW plastic models...
if you are reading this signature, then you are wasting you're time, and i am wasting my time by writing it, so run along now, jimmy, run along.
Use break fluid, it doesnt harm plastic models.
is break fluid really that good for plastic then?
i tried out white spirits and it did nothing, i then used some proper paint stripper (wierd jelly like stuff) and it was great for metal models but melted the backpack of one of them into a small blob of plastic...
