I recently had a bit of a hobby mishap where an entire platoons worth of guard which were in the process of being stripped got ruined, somehow they all melted despite me using the normal stuff I use. Admittedly they were older plastics so that could have been the cause. that was about a month ago and kind of knocked me wanting to get back going but I think I'm there now.
- start picking them out in the grey/white used on my inquisitor terminator is worth it
- leave them green and subdued (and potentially lost)
- remove them and have the pads just painted plain green as with the rest of the armour
