    Over priming

    Ok, I have over primed my second squad of space marines. I know there is very little I can do to fix this but what in game world excuse can I have for the armor's appearance? All of the overspray is pretty much on one side of the model and it gets less as you go down the line.

    I was going to say that they took fire or were in some kind of blast and managed to survive. There armor however bore the brunt of the blast and therefore is scarred as a result.

    That or if it isn't so bad you could take an x-acto knife and carefully scrape the raised areas of the primer...

    cheers,

    You'll just be compounding the problem if you paint over the botched undercoat.
    Take it as a lesson, strip them and start over.
    Picking and scratching at them with a sharp instrument will just send you barmy

    I've used nail polish remover because it's pretty much instant. Use a toothbrush, dip it in the remover and scrape it over the whole model. I heard Pinesol works too.

    What, exactly, did you do to overbase it?
