Repainting painted models

Postby Guard>Marines » 02 Dec 2017, 19:20

Evening chaps,
I'm thinking of repainting a couple of my tanks that are already painted so they match my infantry. There's only really a Base Layer of colour on them, so should I a) paint over the top in the new colors, b) undercoat then start again c) strip the paint (if possible for plastic models)
Cheers

Hello mate,

I'd have thought you'd be ok with just a primer or simple base layer.

However, Dettol (the brown stuff) is excellent for stripping it off (a toothbrush helps too!) - just don't use it on Resin.

Fantastic. Will get cracking on them when I've got my latest batch of stuff done.
You were right about the Yarmouth shop!

Not as bad as I expected. Picked up a brand new 8th rulebook for £15 and got about £20 worth of paints for less. Didn't pick any more models up. Think my army creates enough salty tears without adding more command points to the mix!

Depends on how think the base coat is etc. You should be ok to over prime it or just paint straight over the top tbh. Int eh words of Duncan tho use multiple thin coats to get a nice even and smooth coverage :D
