Commissar Tank Commander

Commissar Tank Commander

Here is a Forgeworld 40K Tank Commander Commissar (28mm scale so this figure is approximately 15mm). The quality of the detail on this simple half-figure is fantastic; every line was crisply sculpted in this resin casting. Once again Simon Egan has done a brilliant job of sculpting a figure. I’ve seen him at work and what amazes me is that he sculpts one to one.

I painted this mostly using Vallejo paints with only the epaulettes being Citadel colours. It took me two half days to do this, and I used the skintone recipe for Vallejo paints that Jen Haley published on her website (http://www.paintrix.com) and in the Coolminiornot Annual, with a couple of minor adjustments to strengthen the shadows.

All I need is a great tank to place this figure in now.

Hope you like this as much as I enjoyed painting it. Comments as always welcome.

two reasons for this score. The first, the paint job is awsome and i have had problems with red in the past as well. The second, i am very partial to this color scheme, this is basically how my army is painted, he looks like a Death's head commandant, excellent.

8.5 I think the reds could be better (but they probably are in real life). I like the blend on the aquilla.

Nicely done! I saw this little guy at the US HQ store and said that I had to have it as a mini bust, since I've done so many of the FW large busts. Yours is quite nice and I'm itching to get mine finished.
