One hell of a tip-bucket. And for the record, acetone will tend to do the trick (and very quickly), but nonetheless I've been looking for something better. I reckon I'll be trying Dettol next, as I think I've got a bottle somewhere. Now, to find it...

mineral turpentine works best for metal miniatures. do not use on plastic unless you have put soooo many coats of paint on it its not funny. Use oven cleaner sprays to remove paint on plastic but wotever you do, do not get the lemon scented ones. they never work

Right, update: I've now experimented with Dettol, and it's bloody fantastic. After soaking the mini for several hours, the paint is more or less sloughing off, and with no damage whatsoever to the plastic. The destroyed paint does tend to get somewhat tarry, but that's a relatively minor complaint. Far and away the best substance I've tried yet.

Hmm all this looks very interesting to me to try on my Blood Angels and Eldar.
Now let me be of some assistance. I will volunteer to try coca cola ( canned) and see if the paint'll come off ^^.

I'm not expecting much but I'll give you guys an update VERY soon.

Awsome thinking about buying some stuff off ebay and stripping it..
My tip for metal is simple and ultra fast.. buy some airbrush cleaner place what you want in a container you can make air tight .. spry all over figure... close lid for 60 seconds wash under tap.. infact in a clear container you can see it peal off an form large guey lumps around the base.. DO NOT use on plastic unless you want it to look like a melta has hit it lol.. wash off with soap and water u can paint it

The sisters of battle have their convent on Gavarrone, which makes them `The Nuns of Gavarrone`

Add another one.

Methylated Spirits
5 mins - A
>15 mins - Don't do it. Melting chance high.

Damamge to Plastic none if kept under 5-10 mins


Every one always tells me that methos melts plastic.
This is not true.
Trust me. I strip all my minis with it and i haven't had a singe model melt on me yet.
