Okay, now I need to GS that right elbow, and the joins between arms and body once the superglue finishes drying.
And maybe GS a wrist as well, not sure.
Then I can glue on the backpack and grenades, and call it good for priming,

I've done the GS on the leg knee joints, the left shoulderpad, the hands on the bolter.
Still needs a tiny bit more GS work to tidy up the left knee joint, and then I need to glue everything in place before I can do some GS work on the elbow region of the right arm, but once all that is in place, it should be good to go with undercoating.

In the meantime, Antoninius legs are pinned to his base.

Hi, long time lurker and new poster.  I haven't played Inquisitor for a long time, but getting back into it.  I have a reasonable collection I will post images of shortly, an working on stuff.  Based in Virginia USA, but a U.K. Native.

And Novarius is mostly painted. Or is painted, if I decide to not bother with the OSL on the beacon light thingy on the base there.






Once I'm sure I'm done with this marine, I will need to work on the next marine.

I've heard of Simple Green, but I see little reason to buy it over Isopropanol. It's more difficult and expensive to get hold of in the UK, and the more chemicals in the mix, the more likely one of them will damage models.

As it is, Isopropanol seems to have stripped the paint off green stuff pretty much flawlessly.

I think that the areas that were being softened by the Isopropanol which I first thought were badly mixed green stuff might actually be ProCreate. Not great news for people who use ProCreate, but fairly good for me, as I no longer do.
(I have one model that does that I might want to strip, but it's only partially Procreate, and it may be that it will survive careful stripping - I'm currently seeing if airing the model does anything to reharden these areas - being an alcohol, Isopropanol is somewhat volatile).

I've yet to test on resin, so more on that later, but for now, I don't think I'm going to be switching to anything else.

I've heard "simple green" (I assume an american brand) clears paint off plastic minis without damaging the models - might this do the same for a GS sculpt?

For a follow-up to the above stupidity with spray cans, I've had the models sitting in the cupboard for the last month and a half waiting to be rescued from the dire undercoating job.

In the past, I've found that Dettol* or Fairy Power Spray also slowly damage greenstuff (so the battle is between leaving a sculpt in for just long enough to remove paint, but not destroy the model), things like acetone obviously completely eat plastic, and brake fluid is seriously nasty stuff that I've never tested on green stuff anyway.

As such, I've started chasing up a recommendation I had years ago, bought some Isopropyl Alcohol (more technically, "Propan-2-ol") off eBay (~6.40 posted for a litre) and dropped an old unneeded sculpt in it.

Results: Very promising. After 24 hours, pretty much all the paint has shifted. There's a couple of parts of less well mixed green stuff that seem to have suffered slightly, but none of the well mixed green stuff (or the plastic or metal) seems to have been fazed in the slightest.
The sculpt has gone back in for a second round just to be sure and see if I can get the last of the undercoat off, but this looks it will probably be my new paint removal solution. (And pending a follow up may well get a resounding recommendation).

* Dettol does contain Isopropyl Alcohol, which is presumably its "active ingredient" versus acrylic paint, but it seems that the other components (either on their own or in combination) do green stuff no favours.

I've done a little bit of painting - it still needs more work.

Speaking in admin mode, I would have to remove such a topic for legal reasons.

It's one thing if at the bottom of another thread someone says they might send them something (at that point the forum itself isn't particularly implicit), but the forum cannot be seen to be so openly involved in the sale of copyright infringing material, and drawing the attention of GW Legal over that could potentially catch things like the rules archive project* in the blast radius.

* Which isn't really legal, although unless we tick them off over something else, GW seems to be mostly tolerant of Specialist Games communities continuing to freely distribute rules after the original GW sites hosting them have been consolidated. (I know, for example, that places like Yaktribe are well known to the GW team).

Any actual organised discussion of such a thing needs to be kept off the main forum.

Roger that. Sorry for the mistake
