If you buy a model thats already painted is there a way to paint over it and not loose the fine detail such as eyes mouths ect...
Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

All you have to do is hit the model with a few lite coats of primer. Just spray them till they are covered with a good quality primer, NOT THICK. Most likely if the models were prepainted by someone who didnt know what they were doing, they might be painted too think with the Citadel paints. THey tend to be a tad thick if not thinned with water, acryl thinner or alcohol.
Again, make sure its a thin type thinner and spray light coats. This is a tried and true method, it will work. Then you can go and paint then any way you want!
soak them in peroxide and scrub the paint off, use this method but take a warning with you, it worked for me (not completely sure yet though) so if you want to try it use an old crappy model to test

i just slowly and carefully scrape the paint off with a blade it works great as long as ur careful
Institutional strength oven cleaner (like a restaraunt would use).
Soak them overnight. Remove. Rinse under warm water, using a toothbrush to loosen any paint thats not peeled off. Beware that this may also loosen the glue.
The "rinse under warm water" part is important, as you dont want the stuff on your hands.
Do NOT let pewter models sit more than a day-- the cleaner will eat the pewter.
Note that this -can- create useful effects on larger pirces, like dreadnoughts, but it will destroy the detail on smaller models.
Some say that spray-on non-bake oven cleaner will do the same thing. Never tried it.
Use original Lemon Pine-Sol (not the stuff where the dirt sinks to the bottom) for plastic models, and use acetone for metal models only! Then scrub off the paint with a toothbrush. FYI The acetone eats away superglue. End of discussion.
