Notorious G.I.T.

Notorious G.I.T. and posse (note the slugga).

Notorious G.I.T. and posse (note the slugga).

I finished painting Notorious G.I.T. (centre) and another cool looking gretchin-of-the-line (far right) the other day.

The duo barely warrant their own post to themselves really, although I do really like that plastic gretchin kit (its simple to assemble cool little characterful models that are great fun to paint) and I do try to record everything hobby related here.

Seeing as the G.I.T. (“Gitty”/”Giddy” to his friends) has a magnetised triumvirate of firearms, I figured that I might display that feature if nothing else.

Slugga swapped for implausibly huge shotgun...

Slugga swapped for implausibly huge shotgun…

Originally the box of plastic gretchin was intended to be suitable for use as Rebel Grots in GorkaMorka games.  As such I wanted to make one of the models stand out as the boss, so I made sure that he wore some huge jewellery and wore a baseball cap.

I then magnetised the little guys right fist and a corresponding slugga, shoota and kannon.

...and finally an old 1980s (maybe early 90s) plastic shoota/bolter for some retro chic.

I have since bought many more gretchin models, more than enough to cover a differently armed mob leader in games, but its sort of fun having the silly magnetised guy anyway.

The G.I.T. has yet to see any action, but I am sure that when he does he will leave an impression.

Gretchin Zero/Pulp Gobbo



Last year I bought a number of the Goblinaid miniatures that can be shoehorned into my own projects.  The first of my Goblinaid gobbos to be painted is this guy, Bob Murch’s “Pulp Gobbo” (played by Alec Baldwin in the eventual movie).
