Miniature Monday: Imrijka, Inquisitor
One of the more unconventional miniature concepts, and an Iconic character in the Pathfinder universe: Imrijka, the (half?) orcish Inquisitor.
(posting by Antonia & Dirk)
This week’s miniature has rich detail and (in our opinion) quite some style. A cool coat and a stern attitude made us think of a headhunter or even a “desperado” in a fantasy/wild west setting.
We both wanted her to have an arrow for her bow, and used different ways to achieve that.
Dirk painted the mini as a bounty hunter/city ranger.
“I wanted her to look a little sinister, as she stalks the dark corners of the town searching for her prey, so I stayed with brown and gray colours and even ‘rusted’ her armor. For the arrow I used a broken spear from an undead sprue and cut the tip a little shorter. With no time to make the feathers out of green stuff, I used a plastic farn from an terrain pack and cut it in half – finished!”
Antonia was the one with the “desperado” idea, and made her mini a kind of a
“I was inspired by western movies by the hat and the long coat, so I decided to make the armour plates leather instead of metal and gave her a desert base, plus some dirt on her shoes and coat from the long, lonely walks on the dusty road. As a contrast to the reddish leather I gave her green skin (although in D&D most orcs are rather grey, I suppose, but artistic freedom and stuff…). Like Dirk I wanted her to have an arrow ready, so I carved mine out of a wooden toothpick – it was a bit rushed, so the tip is just sharp and painted, not sculpted, and the fletch is a bit small. But still I’m quite happy how it worked out as an (last minute) addition to the mini.”
Jim sent us the version with the most shining metal:
Jim wrote that he had a hard time to get into the painting, but is happy that he finished her anyway. I (Antonia) personally like the brightness of the armour, which is quite a contrast to both our dark & grimey concepts. Nice work on the face! (I was annoyed with it and didn’t even paint pupils, fortunately for orcs that’s mostly okay). Your inquisitor has a grim and questioning look, perfect for someone of her trade!
William sent us the a daring conversion this week, making her a duellist.
Well done, mate! Awesome conversion!

He made a 360° spinning animation as well:
