Making use of my downtime between painting up the troops, I have put some paint on the Commissar. This is the ubiquitous Imperial Guard Commissar model that came with the Start Collecting boxset, and I do really like it for its sinister appearance.
I didn’t know how I was going to go about painting him at first, so I used a few various sources and character art to figure out a painting scheme. The highlights on his outfit and the dusty effect on his boots were both down to drybrushing, and I threw in a Nuln Oil wash on his bolt pistol and bionic hand for a little shading.
The Commissar can fit an army as an Elite or HQ choice (as a Lord Commissar) depending on what you need; personally I was intending on using him as a Lord Commissar to fill an HQ slot for the time being. I’ve kept his loadout quite basic as I mainly want him around for keeping the troops from doing a runner, and I’m not expecting him to do anything Earth-shattering in combat.
Thanks for reading, take care.
