Default What to do with a Citadel Modular Gaming Hill?

So my flatmate brought something from work home yesterday, somebody at work was fobbing it off and my flatmate knowing I play with little toy soldiers grabbed it for me. I had no idea what he was talking about till as he walked in the door he threw one of these at me:



It's been painted pretty much exactly the same as the one in the picture. Now the question I have is... what the hell do I do with it!

None of my forces are on grassy bases. They are all on either snow, cobblestones or ash wastes. Any ideas on how to use a gaming hill with one of those forces?

if they used pva glue for their basing it actually comes off really easy with a razor knife.

make a small square at an edge and you can run the razor underneath the rest of it sideways... takes a minute but will allow you to rebase it as you want

Thanks for your response. Do you mean the flock/grass on it? There is no base to it, its hollow on the inside.

Yea it seems a bit patchy, I know what you mean though, the guy who put the flock on knew what he was doing and didn't over do it. Do you think soaking it in simple green or some sort of paint stripper would work?

anything to break up the glue compound should take it off pretty easy with a good soak... id suggest testing on small areas of it with different stuff (rubbing alcohol, paint thinner etc) till you find one strong enough that doesnt cost a lot to do the soak with

I've got acetone but that'll rip through plastic faster than Serp through bronie porn.

If it is PVA simple green might do it. Now to find a container big enough to hold it and see if I actually have enough simple green to do the job.

i really think rubbing alcohol (isopropyl) should take it off if its pva would have to soak but it should

Bronies are, as a majority, middle aged often poorly conditioned men. I cannot think of a worse basis for pornography.

Any thoughts on what you're going to do to the hill after you've stripped it?
