Famous Familiars: Ironclad Imp


Another sunny day in lockdown, and after constructing a temporary greenhouse and getting out a paddling pool for the children I found some time for painting. I chose the Ironclad Imp today, as you can see and really enjoyed painting him up.

Not that he took long. 

Despite his name indicating iron, I decided to give him chaos armour instead. Bright, vibrant colours make more interesting miniatures in my view so I went for blue. Purely because I hadn't used that colour on the Skeletal Minion figure. And, this familiar has a slight chaos armour style vibe anyway. 

The sword was a little more challenging. Long term readers know that I struggle to get a decent metallic silver but I feel I have made a little progress here. Drybrushing, inkwashing and edge highlighting gave the sword a little character along its length and I used a brilliant gold to add contrast on the hilt. 

A fun little figure... and one that really should be in any discerning enthusiasts collection. Painted, of course! 


I had a second go at photographing the Minion too. Still haven't quite got the hang of it so please bare with me... though I feel I have captured the colouring of my paint jobs more successfully this time.

See you soon....
