    Stripping and Bulk Shading/Highlighting. Help me please!

    Well my Painting has reached a level of detail and ability that I've never known! BUT now...I have a bunch of marines that are sub par to my ability. SO here's my question-

    Plastic- What is the best way to strip it? Technique, Materials, method? And how much detail will be lost?

    Pewter: Same as above.


    And, I've helped do bulk skeletons..but I've got a HUGe project coming up..so I am wondering..what would be a good wash for Marines with the scheme-

    Armor-Black
    Shoulder Bands and Various Joints-GOblin Green
    Guns-Bolthun Metal
    Chest Eagles-Mythril Silver
    Gun Casing-Metallic BLue Steel


    Orks-

    Goblin Green and variosu shades of this-
    Earhty tones-
    Dull Metal-


    The ansers will be greatly appreciated, these are Playing armies I must add, and not display pieces which is where the bulk Highlighting/Shading comes in. I feel a Wash of some type will be the best way to get the fastest, good results. Any info will be appreciated.

    Use the search function, it works

    Dunno about the wash part, but for stripping:

    1. Get yourself a bucket or an old coffe can or something, a big thing of Castrol Super Clean (auto part degreaser or something, to help you find it), some rubber gloves, and an old toothbrus
    2. Pour the Castrol Super Clean into said bucket
    3. Insert Models
    4. Leave them in overnight
    5. Grab the toothbrush, put on the gloves and start scrubbin'! Paint comes right off, models are left with every detail showing ready for a new scheme ^_^

    That works on plastic as well?
