temperature and possibly to much paint. When I paint in the basement and then bring them upstairs this has happened. As well as the paint could be too thick, if you put a lot on at once it will crack.

I've seen this happen when painting over Krylon Fusion with Acrylic paints. something about a chemical reaction causing it to crack.

are you force drying the paint? Like with a hair dryer? That might also do it.

Painting over dirty parts or other paint(bad reaction) will do that as well as painting in cold/humid conditions.

i've used GW paints for a decade now, and the old WH minis i have look the same as they did 10 years ago. i have seen similar things happen to painted figures and minis before...
my educated guesses would be:
1) the surface you painted on was dirty. there was some oil left on that part of the figure from you handling it. or if you washed it, there could have been some soap or solvent residue left over on the figure.
2) there is a chemical reaction happening from the paints used on the original figure and the GW paints. The primer you used could also cause a similar reaction if it was enamel based (you did use a primer right?). i've had this problem with painting murals when the building owner had used an enamel based paint, and failed to mention it (since i use latex and acrylic paints). this caused a similar cracking, sometimes withing a day or 2, and others after several months.
