I have been away from painting and these boards for a while.
I recently got back into painting and started with some of the bones 3 ogres. I made a rookie mistake with bad lighting and decided they had to go in the Simple Green bath.
The ones that I based coated with brown cleaned fairly well.The armored ogres had Vallejo Coal Black and the stuff will not come off after 36 hours.That is not even a primer, just black model paint.
So has anyone had this problem? Do I need to step up the cleaning solution to acetone free nail polish remover? Brake fluid? Has anyone tried nail polish remover or brake fluid on the Bones? how does the plastic react?

I didn't have time to take better photos of this, too much going on recently to break out the DSLR, so I just used my phone camera. Not entirely enthused about the pics, but the mini itself was a BLAST to paint - probably my favorite non-dragon/large monster I've painted up so far! Once I got the color scheme thought through, I actually painted it up rather quickly. Tried a few new techniques on the stones on the base to make them seem a little more polished, which in person really stands out well :) Critiques?
The scenery from The Bones 3: Mythos Expansion
77525 Great Obelisk.
I have tried to vary the tones on the greys used here, on the obelisk itself and not just the cephalopod on top. It really does not show up too well in the pictures.
77523 Cthulhu Shrine
A statue that causes sanity loss. As above, I trued to vary the tones,mostly with different coloured glazes. And they do not really show up in the pictures here either.
This does not seem to have a code nor a name (yet). It is also from the Bones 3 Mythos Expansion.
I will call it the Cultists Altar.
Painted this guy last weekend. Highlighting is still a problem for me, but I still like the way he turned out. I plan on touching up a lot of the paint next weekend, and eventually going over the parchment again to update the writing, but for now it will do. Any tips on doing small runes or letters would be appreciated. Thanks as always!
