A little bit of Altdorf.
« on: April 19, 2010, 05:59:51 PM »
Hey guys, I haven't painted much Empire for a long time, I started up an Altdorf army about 3 years ago, but my painting was quite poor back then, so those guys are being re-done. However I've started painting up some stuff I build up back then, at last :)

First off, my Warrior Priest:

And my first Out Rider, the champion:

Also a quick question, what's the best way of stripping paint from plastic mini's?

Thanks  :smile2:

Nice work so far. Keep it up.

As far as stripping paint I use Simple Green, but have had mixed results with it on plastic figs. Works great on metal ones. It could have something to do with the paint/primer used etc. and since the only ones I have stripped so far are ones from ebay that others have painted I have no clue what paints or primers were used. I will say that I have left figs in the Simple Green for several weeks to a month or more with no damage to the fig other than glue dissolving. Search around because there are several long and detailed threads already about paint stripping.

I like how you are doing your blue and red. :icon_cool: :eusa_clap:

Welcome back inot the Empire, and stick around because I think the new WFB rules might help us out a bit, but we'll see.

In the meantime, keep us posted on how this army is coming along.
