i think all GW sprays eat the stuff, you could try painting each one with a brush (would take ages)
but i think most sprays eat it anyway

There are a couple of things you can do, you can use a glue wash (1 part glue to 3 parts water) brush it on then when it is dry you can use an "acrylic" low odor spray primer making sure you are at least 6 inches away as the propellents are what eat the foam.

second you can buy a good quality house paint acrylic primer and brush it on, use a 1 inch brush and it won't take long at all.

I find that I prefer to use the house paint primer rather that the glue as if your glue is too thick you can get a crazing effect in the paint after.

If you want to do the house primer with 1 coat you can then use a spray for the second coat with no problem.

Make sure whatever paint you choose is ACRYLIC oil based paints will also eat foam.

Another thing that works is latex texture paint (or a mixture of thinned white glue and sand, if you are being cheap). It is nice because it also fills in the distinctive honeycomb texture of most styrofoam, giving your buildings a stucco appearance. Once it dries, it is fast work to drybrush the whole thing for a nice finish.

You can find it at most hardware or home improvement stores. It is pretty common.
