Of course, I wasted several days trying to get the old, failed colour schemes off. Simple Green isn't as good as I originally thought. I found that using a 2:1 mix of hot water and Simple Green worked best. Left to soak for a day or two. Even then I had really scrub with a toothbrush and it didn't all come off. I got bored in the end and left some of them painted:
|I didn't repaint these because... well, because I can't be arsed.|
They will look stupid when compared to the rest of the Necrons but this is the price you pay for being unfocused and having a short attention span.
