Not all was peace and quiet in the forest. Lately a group of little demons had infested the place. These Imps, Hordlings or whatever they were called, harassed the little animals, the fairies and they damaged the trees and the mushrooms. Even the Grand Mushroom watched in horror how they terrorized the Forest, but he could do nothing. One day the Imps captured one of the fairies and beat her up. She could barely escape and she fled crying. Almost leaving the forest, she came by a small dirt road, and she noticed a cart coming. Quickly she hid between the bushes. A wizard passed by, contemplating his latest spells, a cart filled with supplies. The donkey pulling the cart, was in no hurry it seemed. Slowly it passed by. The fairy looked at the cart, she sneaked into the back. The wizard didn't notice the little fairy rummaging through his supplies, he was too caught up in his spells. Suddenly the fairy noticed a bottle, the label said: Gigantic Growth. Feeling her blood rising to her cheeks she stole the bottle and hopped off the cart. She went back into the forest. The Imps saw her coming and started laughing. Clearly this one hadn't had enough! The fairy drank the potion, all of it, and in a moment she started to grow. One Imp said...this can't be good! The next moment the fairy had her revenge, she trampled the first Imp into the ground and chased the others. Even the Grand Mushroom felt sorry for the Imps now!

Looking at the 06180 Darkspawn Imps for a project (I know, I have too many already, but have you seen my House?!?)... but have a question and no one seems to have really painted or mentioned them, or else I'm searching poorly. Surely, somewhere, someone has bought these. Mostly I just want to know if there are only 2 variations in this pack of 8 or if those two in the photo are just a sampling and there is more variety. $39.99 is more than I want to risk at this time as I'm not actually trying to field an army and need variety. The good one (14365 Darkspawn Imp) is a solo, but I would like 3-5 Imps if they are different. If there are only the two sculpts with 4 of each of them, then I'm probably going to just get the single Imp and work something else out. Anyone know one way or the other?
So here are a few more I just finished, three little goblin-imps from Ral Partha, sculpted around 1979 or so I think. These guys are really pretty puny, and I'm linking two of them because they've got there little impy parts a' dangling. Originally I didn't them to be so green. I actually started them off with a base coat of Golden Blond, but then I guess with the progressive washes of different and sundry greens, browns and Dark Elf skin triads made them greener than I anticipated. Oh well, such is life. http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Kickstarter_Goblin_imp_with_javelins.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Kickstarter_goblin_imp_with_scimitar.jpg
While not very well done technically, I wanted to do something fun and humorous so I sculpted these little guys. The last one is throwing a pie. I have heard that imps like pies and settle their disputes with either pie eating contests or pie fights.
