Once I saw the forgeworld commissar models I just knew they had to be the commanders for my army. The fluff was pretty much designed around them, explaining the gas masks on only a few models and the large amount of comissars. Originally my commander was a simple upright standing guardsman with a boltgun and samurai sword sheathed on his back (he has been re-assigned to my veteran squad and will need a weapon refit to replace the boltgun, more on that later)
Onto the squad...
Colonel Commissar Winters (HSO)
Commissar Advisor Spears
To be honest after looking at these pictures, they look OK at a distance, but the close-ups do look like the ink has taken over a lot of the details. I may have to have a go at drybrusing the colours back onto these areas. (Which is pretty much what i did on the Dress Sergeant, hence why he looks cleaner than the others)
What do you think? I'd love to have some feedback from more experienced modellers/painters and from those who can paint :D
For now, I'm cracking on taking pics of the few other units I've painted and some WIP of some other things.
Another note, you may notice these models do not have army markings on the shoulder pads, its because I'm currently sourcing some printable transfer paper to use a photoshopped army symbol and squad numbers.
Cheers for now, TSINI
