How do you strip paint off metal models? I painted some GK's a while back and then never played them, (I went back to marines since there was a tourny on). When I came back to my old GK's I realised that the paint job was garbage. I'm getting some wild and weird ideas about what to do and I don't have access to huge vats of chemicals like acetone or methanol.
Please look up! At the top of the painting forum is a Pinned topic with all the stripping ideas, and examples you could ever want...any question you have can be found there. Good Luck.
Do not meddle in the affairs of Tyranids, for you are crunchy and taste good with everything!
Buy an industrial quantity of acetone-based nail polish remover. It's really heavy duty stuff.
Remove the bases and backpacks from the miniatures (to not melt them), and then submerge the minis for a few days. For the backpacks, you'll have to use some less agressive solvent, maybe something alcohol-based.
Use. The. Search.
Fill a pot with brake fluid and leave your models (less their bases if you can get them off) in over night, or up to 24 hours. Then drain them off and attack with a stiff old (I mean OLD! toothbrush, and job's a good 'un.
Give a man a gun and he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank and he can rob the world.
As said please use the pinned Stripping thread at the top of the Forum.
