Default painting disaster

i have my very first batch of marines when i first started playing. i had no idea what i was doing as far as painting goes. incidently the first batch came out horrible. i primered them painted them then didnt like the color so i primered them again not knowing about how badly it would build up on the model itself. so now that i am more experienced i want to try and salvage my models. a local hobby shop guy told me that "greased lightning" would be good. Basically let the model sit in it for a couple days and the paint should come irght off with a tooth brush or soemthing. i tryed it and it seems that my model is melted. im wondering if anyone know of a product that can remove paint and sealent without destroying my plastic and metal models. any ideas would be appreciated.

Try this link:

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Easy off oven cleaner does not damage plastic models.
Cover the models completely, leave them in a well ventilated area(preferably in a jar with a small hole on the lid), let them sit for a day, and scrub off with a brush.

Make sure you use gloves.
