Rogue Trader Ironclaw Space Pirate

Rogue Trader Ironclaw Space Pirate

He was a lot of fun to paint – as with all Ironclaw figures it features Bob Olley's hypnotically flowing cloth details, texture switching (look at the how the cuffs vary from the sleeves) and pronounced facial features. What turns a lot of people off these figures is they're not recognisably 40K – the weapon, armour and equipment designs only appear in the IC301 Space Pirate and IC501 Squat ranges, and didn't get absorbed into the main 40K universe design. Bomber jackets with fur collars were issued to aviation pilots to keep them warm before the invention of pressurised cockpits, so the figure looks very twentieth century. The range is a real curiosity from a time before Rogue Trader coalesced into a coherent universe, and that only helps the Space Pirates look of being exotic outsiders on the fringe of the known universe.
