New method for stripping paint.

Postby Stu's Idle » Tue Apr 12, 2016 6:30 pm

I've always used Dettol in the past. It smells and creates a rather sticky mess which can be a problem.
I've just seen this and thought I'd share it as it seems like a much better alternative:

Flames Of War: Soviets
Team Yankee (6mm and 15mm): Soviets
Bolt Action: Soviets
DUST: SSU aka Soviets (anyone spotted the theme yet?)
Star Wars Armada: Imperials (Space Soviets, a long, long time ago)
Epic Armageddon: Imperials (Space Soviets, in the grim, far future)
Frostgrave: Dwarves (Short Soviets)

Which Biopstrip do you use Biostrip 20 or biostrip basic. Have been looking for a replacement for Fairy powerspray. Ebay has both biostrip basic and biostrip 20 both being made by Fuze. Biostrip basic being half the price of biostrip 20. Which one do you use? :?

Just found Biostrip 20 on Amazon much cheaper at £8.99. Now which one tub or spray?

I use the tub because I've mostly done infantry. The spray might be better for tanks but I don't know.
