Repaints of D&D minis

This might be off topic for this community - I'm on mini_painter, but feel like they're more of a show-off-my-cool-new-minis sort of community.

I like a lot of the castings for the D&D minis, and the price is certainly right for a lot of them, but the paint jobs are usually somewhere between mediocre and offputting. I'd kinda like to repaint them if I bought any of them.

Does anyone know a good way to strip the existing paint from the plastic minis without wrecking the plastic? Or given the minis' size and material, would it work better to just spray primer over the existing paint job?
