Cadian Commissar

Cadian Commissar

I got this figure, a Cadian Lieutenant, and imediately felt he would look better as a Commissar. So, I sculpted a peaked cap on him and voila! Instant Commissar.

I honestly feel that this is the best paintjob I've done. Not, perhaps, the most technical but I am very pleased with the lack of messy areas that occasionally creep in when painting.

I entered the figure in UK Golden Demon 2003 and walked away with a bronze demon for him in 40k single miniature. I am very proud of that win.

This is one of the best painted minis I've ever had the fortune to see. It was one of only a few models that I remembered after leaving GD last year. Stunning. I've not seen better highlighting on black anywhere else, and the dust effects are outstanding. Can I buy it?

Clean, that's what every single little part of this mini screams Truly, this is maybe the cleanest and most cleverly detailed paintjob I've ever seen, bravo!

That really is a stunner! Simple conversion yet amazingly effective, and a wonderful paint job sets it all off!

I can't stop coming back to this fig, and I can't stop thinking that the peaked cap is way better than anything I can buy or sculpt myself, which makes me sad I can only hope my version of this figure is anywhere near as nice when I get around to making that Guard army!

Stunning. A simple conversion made to look like a masterpiece. Many people I showed this too couldn't tell what the conversion was it looks so seamless and well incorporated into the model. Brilliant work, consider the idea stolen for my own army. Fantastic inspiration and definitely one of the best Guard models I've ever seen.
