    Helllp!

    Here is my predicament. I have a squad of Sisters of Battle and a Cannoness that simply refuse to keep paint on them. Any Suggestions?

    Prior to priming (I'm assuming that you are priming them first before you paint) the models, wash them thoroughly in a solution of soapy water. Obviously let them dry before you prime them again.

    Often there is a residue on models that prevents them from bonding properly to the primer.


    Other folks recommend other even more drastic cleaning procedures prior to priming such as alcohol on metal models.

    Ummm, ok, so you have girls with guns who prefer to be naked? :w00t:


    Sorry, couldn't help that... :shifty:

    Grey has it mate, make sure they are primed onto a clean surface. too much handling can put skin oils on them, that doesn't let the paint grip well. even new ones might have some mold release agent on them.

    A bit of healthy sanding might be of use as well (paint will stick on a rough surface better than a slick one)

    Wram soapy water is the best way to go. If not, then nail varnish remover followed by warm clean rinses of water should cut the mustard.

    I suggest putting matte on them if they are already paint, but take the suggestions above for future use.

    So, would it be a good idea to repaint them completely, if it is worthwhile?

    First of all you should tell us...did you prime your models?

    Of course. But I used that base as the black for the Order of Our Martyred Lady armor.

    Repaint the ruined parts, the Matte spray to ensure it won't get rubbed off.
