PostSubject: Gretchin Gang - For the abuse of the White Waaagh! (pic HEAVY!)   Thu May 13, 2010 3:53 am

Well... I decided that before working on my Prisoner, I need to finish some of the 4 billion projects that I have half way done. So, I decided to finish my Gretchin Gang! As you may know, during last Summer Campaign I was playing Orks and (of course Wink ) I had some Gretchins. We decided that anyone using booby traps HAD to have something other than tokens or beads; rather than just making good old Stik Bombs, I decided to make good use of the Gretchins, by making them living bombs!

Without any other delays, for your sadistic pleasure...
my Gretchin Gang!


These are the Booby Traps. Hand picked Gretchins, assign a critical duty... "To make sure Da Boss knows da time is fer fight'ng!"





A wonderous piece of Ork Technology. WHO can actually resist some free ammo for some Dakka?
In the words of the local Mek Boy, 'Geff da ammo, geff da BOOM!"













Poor Stubby... without any arms, he spends his days waiting for death. So, he picked up smoking.
It bothers Da Boss, who is a Health Nut... so he sent him away to guard the 'go-go juice' for his trakk.
If you are planning to get close, be sneaky... if you spook him, he may scream!











Nobody knows how this happened. The Gretching got into the barrel and Da Boss told him to stick his hands out and game him some guns.
Not only they welded the barrel shut, but they put glue on the guns... no point on the little bugger dropping them, is it?
Notice that the guns are 'safety orange', the same color that toy guns are required to have in the USA. Just Kidding









He is grumpy and grouchy... he will put a cap up your ass! Stop making fun of him.









All the Gretchin Fighters, members of the White Waaagh!





My Personal favorite... safety orange gun AND a flag. Just Kidding











I needed a few 'serious' Gretchins... unfortunately, this one is not it.









He became REALLY 'smatz' after Da Boss threw him UP to a 4th floor (literally!) He landed fine, ready for the Charge.
The Eldar Ranger was so sppoked, that kicked him DOWN and he landed on his head. He survived... but always talks funny.









He got his Grunt Blasta blow up SIX times... somehow he never actually died.







So... there they are. Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. Comments, suggestions, critiques and observations are VERY welcomed! On to the next project! cheers

Hillarious! Love the one in the barrel with the guns glued to his hands and Stubby! How did you do the cloth coming from the jerrycans?

@ mudboy: Thanks! I have few other ideas for great Booby Traps! Just Kidding

@ VonHagel: What do you mean... you do NOT like the safety orange color? The reason is that here in the USA, all toy guns HAVE to be or a neon color (green, blue pink, yellow or orange)... the green and blue would be lost on the model, the pink was too girly... so I got stuck with yellow or orange. Since orange is the most popular toy gun color, I went with that. Basically, the poor Gretchins are going to WAAAGH! with plastic toy guns. A friend described the Gretchin Blasta as a gun designed by a drunken retard and assembled by a paranoid blind man. I just wanted to convey the sense of uselessness of the gun!

@ Librarian: We did had a lot of fun with Stubby... in EVERY game he would 'blow up' (the bobby trap was activated... ON PURPOSE!) and return in the next battle. HA! The rags are actually VERY simple. I drilled the gas tank and took some Green Stuff, rolled it VERY thin and folded a tip to squish it in... just like you would do with a piece of cloth. Shocked It worked!. The rest is just paint trickery. Just Kidding

OH BABY! GOBLINS IN SPACE! You've captured the TRUE Bugs Bunny persona of the Little Green Psychos WONDERFULLY...I can almost hear the Looney Tunes jingle in the background. The Two Gun Killer Can is a favorite. VERY WELL & IMAGINATIVELY DONE! What a Face

@ DeafNala: HA! Coming from the GREAT Goblin himself is indeed a compliment! I have something ELSE planned for the Trash-Kan unit... The Gretchin will be wearing a baseball cap with the Death Squads logo! Just Kidding Thanks for the kind comments. Any suggestions on paint? I know my style is WAY different than yours, but pointers are always welcomed!

@ MathiasDark: You too? That guy was an after-though. I did Stubby (the one smoking) first and I had two arms with guns laying around. Glad you like 'em!

LOL They're hilarious!
Stubby in particular is great and I love the back story you've come up with for him.
Great painting especially with the cans.

I don't get this, I feel sad for the slightly deranged people in New Zealand and the States, I mean over here they can at least give the illusion of having a real gun, when doing stick ups for insane amounts of gum or lollipops.

It's a crazy world

On a serious note, guess I find the toy weapon in the hands of grots hard to stomach because it's something from our world, and not something from the warhammer 40k universe, damn I'm more of a correctness nazi then I thought, oh well

@ VonHagel: I know what you mean... no toy guns in 40k... but the joke is for the viewer (player). As you can see, the 'original' guns look normal (although they could use some rust)... but then the silly-monster (Google that!) hit me in the head, and hearing the Loony Tunes in my noggin (to quote DeafNala) it went down hill!

@ 02laney: I'm VERY happy you liked them. I have great appreciation for your work, so it take your comments in VERY high esteem. I have an idea to make three more Gretchins... one is rated G (silly!), the other one is rated PG (potty humor) and the otherone is rated PG-17 (gruesome dark humoristic cartoon violence). Hopefully I have time to do them soon!
