Repainting Metal Mini

5 posts in this topic

I don't like the paint job I started on my Metal Hobgoblin Captain, but I'm not sure how to get him to a point to restart. I used spray primer, so it obscured some details I want to see as well. Any advise on how to start over on him?

On a metal mini?

 

Some prefer to give it a looong bath in 'Simple Green' to strip the paint. 

 

Another favorite paint remover is 'Acetone-free nail-polish'. 

 

Which primer did you use?

I'm not sure what primer I used. I think it was Army Painter Spray Primer. All I know is that I don't like the results of using the spray can.

Just toss him in some PineSol for a day or two and scrub the paint and primer off with an old toothbrush.
