Max Mini’s Mean Green Gobbo

I recently finished painting this goblin miniature from Maxmini, which they call a Mean Green Gobbo.  I’ve had him for a few years now.  I originally bought him when many of my opponents were using Marbo and I thought this guy would make for a humorous answer to that worthy super commando.

I considered trying to do some pupils for his eyes.  In the cell phone pictures I think he could use some, though from table top distances I doubt anyone is going to notice.  I might do so one of these days when I’m painting something else, but I’m not too worried about it.

I also tried out some Vallejo gun metal blue for the first time on his left gun.  I used Nuln Oil over it, but decided I didn’t like how dark it was, so I did a heavy second layer of blue.  Then I added a little silver to the blue for the highlights, and just a very light touch of silver only to a couple of places I wanted to be very light, such as the muzzle tip.

I’ll probably use him to keep some of my artillery or foot gretchin in line when my commissar is too busy for such mundane duties.  (He usually is to be found these days among the boyz.)  He’s kind of short for a gretchin minder, but I think if I allow my opponent to draw line of sight from the top of his right thump gun, then that’ll be about the same height as a standard runtherd.

Further, his Moar Dakka approach to things certainly gives him at least the same shooting and close combat power as any goblin leader, though trying to fire everything at once, like I’m sure he inevitably does, isn’t going to be too great for his accuracy.
