They've been sitting in simple green for about a year now. Should be about time to get them out and start scrubbing.

Oh wow - let me know how well they scrubbed up! A year is crazy, hopefully it makes them really easy to get clean.

 

Cheers for the post GuardDaddy but the old metal Cadians use slotta bases and I'm trying to do everything cheap so no buying bases yes.gif

 

Just one more model to finish off on my other project, then I'll be looking at getting a couple of squads started! If I aim for the basic 2 HQ and 3 Troop choices I think that's a decent beginning thumbsup.gif

I had some steel legion in simple green for I think geeze 2-4 years including two plastic/metal sentinels the old Armageddon ones. Paint was basically already off, was the easiest time I every had stripping models. I love simple green, stuff has never let me down and has never did anything drastic to my models.

 

(For those that consume alcohol btw. If you Mix Jagermister and Mountain Dew together, you get the same color and smell as simple green)

I guess if you have the time then long baths are just the stuff! :D I finished my other project last night (early for the Thursday game which is nice!) so now I can turn my attention to my IG. I will have to do a bit more clean up work with them but I'm hoping to get them based and under coated this weekend. Couple of squads and perhaps two HQ characters I think :)

22 models prepped and under-coated :D I think I'll do the rank and file in batches of 5 - it's funny how when thinking about my plans it didn't seem like a big task but when I lined all the models up I had a different viewpoint :P
