I'm pretty sure I already know the answer, but it never hurts to get confirmation. . When stripping paint from a mini (in this case a Bones that I completely screwed up the paint job on), is it necessary to get every molecule of paint off? Or is it okay if there's some bits left in some of the crenalations and under bits?

So I've finally joined. Ebonwrath was the first dragon I managed to grab from my pile of Bones. Now assembled and brown line primed.
Here are the results, based on my modified list.
15: Alien Goo, main
3: HD Fireball Orange, secondary
17: Solid Blue, accent
So this is YOUR doing Pezler!
Guess I'll try for the 3* challenge. It'll feel like my early days of painting when I owned a very limited palette.
Giant Mountain Troll The Old Troll and the Boar I cleaned, repaired and repainted a long time baddy from our gaming sessions, Reaper's Giant Mountain Troll. He had fallen to the floor a few times over the years and had a gloss coat instead of a matte coat for a sealer. So he was quite due for the treatment.
Given his look and feel, I decided to paint him as an older troll. His skin is duller. His hair receding considerably. He hasn't fought anyone in a long time. Even the boar for his dinner wasn't much of a hunt. So he's kept his clothing in relatively good repair and found and made some better furs to wear. He still prefers his old stone axe. He was happy to find some stone laced with mithral to make a new axe head for it though.
You can check out the WIP post to see everything I did to get him here. WIP
The ol'boy will return to the carry case to stand before those pesky fellas from yonder cities and protect his mountain or wherever he gets plopped down.
Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery. (Approved)

My long time generic bad guy, the Giant Mountain Troll by Sandra Garrity, came out of the carry box to get cleaned, repainted, and repaired.
His nose suffered a long drop to the floor flattened his bulbous nose considerably.
Here's his stock photo from the catalog:
Here he is with his paint cleaned off with Simple Green double dip and his nose filed back to sort of bulbous.
Since he was well and truly beat down, I decided to make him my next piece with Lunkh being finished and the Hellborn Troll being mostly done.
Well, I did a very poor job months ago on my Zombicide: Black Plague hero, Ann the nun. With Sorastro's recent tutorial on how to paint her, I thought to strip her and try again. Unfortunately, despite 72 hours or so soaking in Simple Green, hardly any paint has come off her. Ideas? If I could buy the solo figure again, I would, but no idea if that's even possible.
