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.

"The lettering was hand painted..." Why doesn't this thing go up to 11?

The lettering was hand painted and took quite a while. It helped that I was painting over solid black so I could neaten it up easily when required.

I looked at the rating and thought "this is much better than an 8, its a 10, its exactly what a Comissar should look like." Then I looked at the comments The painting looks great, it has a gritty realism and I like that in a mini. Lovely neat freehand on the shoulder pads, how on earth did you do the lettering? Please tell me its a printout or something, its just sooo neat. The mud effect is nice as well, how did you do that?

that has got to be the best commissar ever... it's soooo smooth... and nice peak cap... not too big... not too small either... just the right size...

congratulations to your trophy, Steve, I love the whole Cadian range, and this guy is great as an officer, but he´s got that commisar look for sure - a marvellour job, I just can´t find any flaws, especially the face is a masterpiece, and ´cause you´ve also converted him, I see no reason not to give a 10;

So smooth I might've expected it was Cyril's if I hadn't seen a shot of this on the GW website You really did an amazing job on this model, it's simple and perfectly executed. Subtle, rich, and just the right amount of dirt all in one figure. Very impressive

A 10 cause I would have no idea how to paint it better then that.
