I ran into this problem before. My solution was to go over the tacky primed coat with Teastors Dull Coat. Once dry this took away the tackiness while still having a good surface to paint over.

This may work.  I had an issue with a faulty tub of Army Painter Quickshade (on a non-reaper plastic model) were it never dried.  After several day sit was still tacky.  Army painter suggested I spray it with a matt varnish, they recommended I use their Anti-Shine rattle can, but I imagine any matt varnish would have done the job.   It fixed it and saved me from having to repaint seven figures.

I'm here to report back in that while it took me a while to find and buy Testor's brush on Dullcoat, it worked like a charm.  The mini is no longer tacky, and I plan to fix a few chips and smudges here and there and apply another coat.  But for me at least, Testors seemed to work the necessary magic.

I used Army Painter rattle can primer on a bones mini and think it is ruined.  I painted it about a month ago left it on my "desk" it is still tacky.  I thought I have used it before on a reaper bones mini but must have been wrong what can I use to remove it without wrecking the Golem if I can.

You can try Simple Green or Purple Power to strip plastic, among other things.  You should also be able to go over the mini with a brush-on or airbrush acrylic primer or sealer, or a known safe spray.  Dullcote is often mentioned as a safe spray sealer.  I've had good luck with Tamiya spray primer on Bones.  Whatever you use, it is best to test if you're worried about it not working.
