This post is dedicated in loving memory of Frosty the Snow Marine. May the emperor bless. “We had some good times ‘ol buddy, I’ll miss ya.”
Frosty met his demise in the green abyss a.k.a. Simple Green.
I have to say that this stuff has done it again. Another successful Simple Green story to add to the pile. I left my frosted tactical squad soak for a little more than 24 hours, pulled them out and got busy scrubbing them with an old tooth brush. About 98% of the paint came off. Good enough for most I’d assume, but I’m a perfectionist so back into the green abyss they went for another 24 hours. After the second dip and scrubbing I was much happier with the results. You can see below that the primer was left almost wholly unscathed, the plastic completely unharmed and the paint 99.9% gone.
The squad is ready for paint once more, but this time will not be subject to the horrors of GW’s Purity Seal. Instead I have two cans of Testors Dullcote on standby.
Aside from this I haven’t been able to accomplish much. I’ve been in Florida this past week on business. I have however managed to get my Hive Tyrant and my super exclusive closed claw Lictor assembled. I want another Hive Tyrant, but I will most definitely be waiting for the new plastic kit. Why? Three reasons: 1. It’s plastic. 2. Wings. 3. It’s plastic… The metal kit is a slutty whore and pushed my patients to the limit.
Until next post, thanks for stopping. Cheers!
