Gretchin mobs compensate for their lack of quality with overwhelming quantity, as the innate cowardice and feeble-limbed incompetence of the Gretchin race does not make them inclined towards the art of war; in fact, a typical Grot would rather bury their head in a sporehole than engage in a real battle. Deyz da small boyz in an Ork army, dem Gretchin!

How to paint the Ork Gretchin set
- Step 1: Prime the Miniature
Apply a thin layer of black primer, such as Chaos Black, to the entire Ork model. This provides a good base for the paint and helps the colors adhere better.
- Step 2: Base Coat the Skin
Using a medium-sized brush, apply a base coat of green paint, like Caliban Green or Waaagh! Flesh, to the skin areas of the model. Apply the paint evenly, covering all the skin areas.
- Step 3: Highlight the Skin
With a smaller brush, add highlights to the Ork Gretchin’s skin by applying a lighter shade of green, such as Warboss Green, to the raised areas. This technique adds depth and brings out the details of the model.
- Step 4: Paint the Clothing and Accessories
Using different colors of your choice, paint the clothing, accessories, and other details on the model. For instance, you can use Dryad Bark for clothing, Leadbelcher for metallic parts, and Mephiston Red for additional accents. Experiment with various paints to achieve your desired look.
- Step 5: Add Weathering and Rust
To give your Ork Gretchin a rugged and weathered appearance, use a small brush to apply touches of brown or orange paint, like Rhinox Hide or Jokaero Orange, to simulate dirt, rust, or worn areas.
- Step 6: Paint the Teeth and Eyes
With a fine brush, carefully paint the teeth of the Ork Gretchin with a creamy or off-white color, such as Ushabti Bone. For the eyes, choose a bold color like Mephiston Red or Flash Gitz Yellow. Take your time to ensure accuracy and precision.
- Step 7: Apply Washes
Using a medium-sized brush, apply a wash of dark brown or black, such as Agrax Earthshade or Nuln Oil, to the recessed areas of the model. This enhances the shadows and adds depth to the details.
- Step 8: Final Touches
With a fine brush, add any final details to the model, such as painting tattoos, scars, or additional weathering effects. Citadel paints like White Scar or Averland Sunset can be used for fine details. Take your time and be precise with these small details to bring your Orks to life.
