Paint stripper......?
Seriously I use a paint stripper called Nitro Mors (be careful!!) or you could use dettol, brake fluid, etc.
There's a thread on Frothers Unite's painting section on stripping minis.

I just use dettol. It works a treat and you don't need to go anywhere special to get it if they stock it in your supermarket.

Hope you don't mind if I moved it, then. :)

Well, what stuff did you find?

I've tried brake fluid and dettol (browny pine disinfectant that you might find under other brand names) but wasn't too satisfied with either of them.  The paint strippers I hear about most are fairy power spray and simple green.  I haven't tried either, yet, but I know a guy who swears by the latter - and that's difficult enough to get your hands on over here, too.

Nice that you moved it here :) i used Yes Powerspray. don't know how international that is so if you don't know of it, it is some kind of spray for fat that is burnt to the stove ( atleast i believe so ). I can happily say it worked awesome just spray and the brush with a toothbrush and it's all gone i didn't even have to wait
