Ok, I've done a lot of painting miniatures, and repainted a few figures in my day....

Now I'm trying something a bit different. I'm trying to take a figure down to the base color... remove all the matty/hasbro paint on a figure and start from scratch... Anyone got a good tip on how to do that??

I've tried soaking them in paint thinner... but I'm not seeing any difference after multiple hours... tried scrubbing them with the thinner... and nothing... Not sure what to try next....
