@evanswolves , have you tried iso propol alcohol? Works great on plastic and fantastic on metal. 45 minutes to an hour and scrub with a tooth brush. @Lord of the Night as for your vehicles, Dark Eldar tend to be quite smooth, would base coating them again with spray paint or air brush not work for you rather than stripping?

Edit: My posts are gibberish, need to get back on the drugs

@evanswolves I think your hypothesis is correct. This looks like some thin residual black undercoat. It looks like the darker shades there aren't adding any unwanted texture to the model.

I think you should be able to wash off the model and re-prime it.

@evanswolves , primer staining is common, I have stripped models that came out to bare plastic, and some which kept a lot of the primer coluring, not sure of the reason, could have been the lenght of time that had past before stripping

It could be a lot of reasons, but ultimately if the details aren't scrubbed/are only scrubbed in hidden spots when you're looking at them in-game whatevs right?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Many thanks all have just realised that it is actually a very thin layer that isnt being removed by the dettol, can actually use my nail to get rid of it, going to give Oldman78s idea ago, see if that'll shift it

I don't know if I have said before but I use this.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/LITRE-ISOPR...ywords=alcohol
I have an old pickles jar which has a cradle so I can lift models out easily, add the iso and dilute it with water depending on how the paint is.
I have stripped metal, resin and plastic old and new. Just leave it for a couple of hours and then give it a rub with an old toothbrush then give it a rinse under a tap and leave it to dry. Then it's ready to do whatever. Also as long as you don't drink the stuff it's pretty safe. Also very handy to have near if you like missing models with knives and tend to put them in to your fingers.
Hope this helps
