Thanks, Barnes. That will ultimately save me time over trying to brush it off. What a PITA. Oh well, lessons learned. Think I'll move to brush-on primer going forward.

In addition to the likely humidity issue, it sounds like the primer also may have had trouble adhering to the plastic. Did you wash the sprues before painting?

If I said yes, would you believe me? I guess I need to be more diligent about doing that.

I thin it so it's a thin dirty white layer over everything. All of my Gorechosen figures were done that way, and all of my Shadow War figures as well.

Well, a bath in Simple Green should strip any lingering release agent.

Some sprues do not need much, if any washing, other sprues need to be scrubbed a lot. I had a Chaos sorcerer where the paint was literally beading on the service and dripping off with no adhesion at all.

These guys are all heading for a Simple Green bath so they'll be cleansed appropriately now! I hope this doesn't end up too poorly. The bright side is that I sprayed really light. Even if it's just the loose stuff that comes off, I'll be fine with it.

Simple Green can strip most primers (the Krylon Fusion Barnes mentioned, I have had trouble stripping), so you should be good to go. I have had eBay minis that had been primed to the thickness and texture of toothpaste and they still come out clean after scrubbing.

Krylon Fusion has a little acetone in it. Don't panic, it isn't enough to damage anything. But it is enough for it it bond really well. I tried scratching some and it didn't come off like other spray paints. But yeah. Spray can be hard to get off with Simple Green- put them in a bowl and submerge them. Leave them in for DAYS. Scrub them every so often with a toothbrush. You won't get it all off, especially in tiny crevasses, but you can probably do enough to reprime VERY lightly.
