Thanks for the many different inputs, that's exactly what we were looking for. We selected a few "volunteers" for experiments; we are already seeing improvements in the quality of painting, and I'd swear a good cleaning and priming is already highlighting some tiny details I had missed out on or did not remember on blank minis, making them easier to paint. Now if only we could tackle bases, but that's gonna be another story. As for the minis painted in the past, they're at bottom priority for any intervention anyway since we still have loads of unpainted stuff. On the latter subject, what would be the easiest/cheapest way for stripping minis of their old paint, according to you guys' experience?

For stripping, 100% use "Biostrip". It's the best - even better than Dettol. Most have used Dettol with success and it does work, but those who have used both will say Biostrip is better for stripping paint. Aside from just being better, with biostrip you can rinse the paint off with some gentle brushing under a tap. Dettol is more effective brushed off than rinsed off, so is more messy. Biostrip doesn't smell either. You won't get asked questions by members of your household. Biostrip works faster too. The only thing is it weakens some new resins if left for more than few hours. It's easy to buy online.

Thanks...just found out a few topics on the subject I had previously missed. Minis are turning out fairly ok for a couple of noobs as we are, even attempting eyeballs for the first time. Still no shading/highlighting though, that looks a tad too tough for now. We still need some extra colors though...

[EDIT]: Yay, just turned into a Goblin! Does I rollz 2 now?
