Garfy’s Get a Grips are a range of painting handles which help you to hold the model whilst you paint it.
Why do I need a painting handle?
Well you don’t. For decades I painted by holding the miniature and that’s cool and it works, but in recent years as I spent more time applying highlights I grew frustrated with rubbing or smudging the paint work off the miniature and having to keep retouching it. Using a grip (especially with the finger rest means I don’t ever have to touch the miniature.
What does Garfy’s Get a Grip do?
The Get a Grip utilises a torsion spring and levers to allow you to open the grip single handedly. The Grip body then holds 50mm Citadel round bases. For 40mm, 32mm and 20mm round bases you can use the supplied orange shims. Because you use form fitted shims the grip it has on your miniature is unrivalled. You can shake it like crazy and the model won’t pop out. Shims for different sized bases are available to order including shims to hold Square Citadel bases and shims to hold smooth round bases typically found on Warmachine, Hordes and other non-gw miniatures.
Garfy’s Get a Grip Pro is the do it all Painting Handle for £6.99. It holds 50mm, 40mm, 32mm, 20mm bases, it includes a wine cork (unused) at it’s core allowing you to pin models without a base or models with odd sized unique bases or even small components or sub assemblies into the cork. It’s other feature is a removable, rotatable finger rest. Which helps you keep your fingers off the miniature and makes painting the miniature upside down really easy.
