What to do with a tiled bay window?

We have a 1930's house which has a curved window bay at the front of the house. During the lifetime of the house someone thought it would look good to cover the front of the bay in tiny bright coloured ceramic tiles.

Every other house down the road has theirs rendered smooth or with the pebble dash look painted white.

We have knock the tiles off, but underneath we have been left with the white tile bond with small amounts of the original brickwork showing through in places.

I want to render the front of this bay so it matches the rest of the street. I'm not sure if its a good idea to render straight over the tile bond thats been left under the tiles?

Someone suggested fixing a wireframe over the tile bond and rendering to that, but if possible I would rather remove it completely. Is there a chemical or something that I can use to remove the old white tile bond left stuck to the brickwork?

If anyone can help, thank you.
