    Best I've used
    Used it on a single miniature for a test and it stripped what nothing had before. Amazing!

    Having used various strippers, IPA, Dettol, Meth spirits I picked up some Paint Blitzer off the back off a recommendation from a friend on Discord.
    It is hands down the best product I have used for stripping minatures.
    It cuts through paint, varnish and primer with ease and isnt smelly or harmful.

    This product is amazing. I've never seen anything like it. It cuts through paint, and varnish even the undercoat which I've found most paint strippers struggle with. Work as it says on the bottle and doesn't even smell too bad.

    I'd give it more stars if I could a solid 10/5 I feel.

    Paint Blitzer is an incredible product for stripping miniatures and after using various products like Dettol, Simple Green and Nail Polish Remover over the years Paint Blitzer is definitely the most effective solution I’ve come across. It is fast acting and reactive, I was able to get a whole tub of models, a mix of plastic and metal, cleaned up and stripped in under 2 hours.

    It lacks the strong solvent odour like Dettol or Nail Polish remover making clean up easy and left no residue on the plastic models like dettol occasionally does. You will definitely need a good toothbrush or small pick to clear the residual paint out of the crevasses of the models but I’ve found it much better at getting into those hard to reach places. Just dip your models, wait for the recommended time and enjoy your just as new old minis! 5 stars!

    I used Paint Blitzer on a Forge World resin Chaos Spawn and War Mammoth. Did a great job of removing the existing paint without damaging the models. Far easier to use than other products I have used for paint stripping, great results without the problems of other strippers.

    Absolutely fantastic product.

    Used on a forge world Leviathan Dreadnought. Ate through the old Paint job and a purposely thick primed top coat (me giving it the acid test) like butter.

    I'll never go back to methylated spirits again!.

    This is an amazing product! My bottle arrived early this week and I got testing it on my ancient Epic 40K minis. They were really caked in various kinds of paints over the years and one soak/scrub later, they're ready to paint. I may put some through again as they were really covered and tiny pieces remain. Way better than any other method I've tried. Looking forward to seeing if you develop any other magic products :)

    I came across this from Pete the Wargamers' Youtube channel and I decided to give it chance for the price and I am amazed with how it worked on models I had in storage for 10 years with thick layers of paint. I will recommend this to my friends and will get more when I need to strip the paint off my older models in the future.

    Having tried the acetone / methylated spirit / Dettol soak techniques everyone reccomends online combined with hours of scrubbing I had almost given up on finding an easy way to strip minis.
    I came across Paint Blitzer and was in two minds as rarely does a product deliver all that it promises.
    This one does!
    I'm on my second bottle and my purchasing of second hand ebay minis caked in the most horrific of paint jobs has gone through the roof!
    All I'm waiting for now is a 1 litre bottle option 😉

    This stuff is amazing, I have used it on an "eBay rescue" of mine and some Forge World resin that I managed to undercoat badly.

    All the models have come up clean as new in about half an hour in the Paint Blitzer.
    It barely smells at all and no need to wear gloves, plus the paint doesn't go all gooey if you get water on it (if you've used that brown detol you know what I'm talking about)

    I don't think I will ever use a different paint stripper.

    Used to strip globby rattle can primer from both plastic and resin models that spirits wouldn't work on. Crazy the amount of stripping you can get done with even half a bottle. Simple, effective, doesn't stink out the room and an affordable price.

    I used this to strip some old RTB01 plastic marines, and they came up clean and completely undamaged. No odor, safe to use without gloves and indoors, and with repeated applications will safely cut through even the worst and heaviest paint jobs. Will be my go-to method of getting models stripped in the future.

    It worked very well
    January 10, 2021
    The best way to strip your models, by a long way.

    It's far faster than all other options, doesn't stink of solvents etc., and the paint comes off with barely any effort.
    While of course you need a brush to get into the gaps, often most of the paint comes off under the running water before you even have a chance to take a brush to it!

    I stripped a load of models in no time.

    Truly top-quality product, well worth the price. Just be sure to use the right shape container to get it as deep as you need it to submerge the desired models. If the container is too wide the fluid won't be deep enough, so check that before you start.

    Works as intended. Very quick and easy compared to DIY methods.

    Top quality product, does exactly what is says on the tin!

    Have tried quite a few different paint removal methods for miniatures over the years and this is definitely the best one I've ever used. Very easy to use, with a viscous consistency that sits on the models well. No nasty fumes, no need to wear gloves, washes off down the sink without any trouble. AND, best of all, extremely effective at lifting the paint so a light scrub with a toothbrush under running water leaves a shiny, clean model. Haven't had the opportunity to try with resin yet, but on plastic and metal the results were spectacular.

    I should also put in a mention for their customer service. Order was dispatched rapidly, despite the lockdown conditions in the UK, arrived quickly, well packaged, and with a clear set of instructions.

    Will certainly be using again. Nuff said!

    I had previously tried stripping minis with stuff like dettol with poor results or smelly rooms as a result, so I was willing to try anything.

    Paint Blitzer kind of sounds too good to be true - very fast acting, kind to skin, no smell... It couldn't be that good, right? Wrong! It's amazing! I've used it on both plastic and metal miniatures and it's as easy to use as it says on the website! Models come out pretty darn spotless after a good gentle scrub under cold water after around 30-45 minutes in the goop!

    Very very pleased with it and would recommend it to anyone with minis to strip with zero hesitation!

    A question has confounded hobbyists time and time again for years. How can I safely, quickly and economically strip paint off old miniatures? Paint Blitzer is the simple answer. I have used it on a variety of plastic, metal and resin models each time to great effect. From 30 year old enamel, to car body spray, to thickly applied acrylic, Paint Blitzer is the one truly universal paint stripper I’ve ever found. It’s easy to use and doesn’t need to be handled as carefully as some dangerous cleaners. It’s fast acting too! Secondhand minis are the green and economical alternative to yet more plastic. Give some old classic miniatures some love, and treat them to a bottle of this white gold!

    Absolute witchcraft! I've had models that I thought I'd never get clean, but this stuff works wonders. No more stinking the house out with dettol or melting the plastic bits off my models with other paint strippers, and I get better results. I genuinely cannot recommend it highly enough!

    Was recommended this product over Twitter and I'm very pleased to say it was a great shout!

    Prompt delivery, easy instructions and most importantly, great results.

    10/10 would recommend

    It's a no brainer, absolute 5 star product. It's the only thing that actually worked 100% with very little scrubbing effort. Honestly I had a brain freeze moment when I used it the first time, I couldn't believe it - this is more akin to a magic potion compared to other products I've used, as it just works in 30 mins to 2 hours and goes to all the little recesses and hard spots.

    This is to my knowledge the only product on the market that will strip a mini properly and effortlessly through layers of paint and primer, down to the plastic which is left unharmed.

    Absolutely fantastic product, certainly going to become a mainstaple in the hobby cupboard.

    Paint Blitzer means that if I do a test model and I'm not happy with it, I know that in less than an hour I can strip it and have another attempt.

    This product takes all the complexity out of stripping minis. It worked like a charm where other methods gave a poor result, is safe to use and is hassle free. Definitely recommended.

    Paint Blitzer works exceptionally, far superior to other products on the market. Great Price, I can see this bottle going way way way further than the same moneys worth of similar products, the product is a completely different texture to similar products and does not have the eye watering and awful smell that the similar products have, works perfectly and will be using this as my go to paint remover for minis.
