    Who is this "Good Guy"?

    Fellow IG players!

    I am in a possession of a IG model that I have not seen before (but then I am not an IG player myself). I accepted it as a painting commission from a friend. He got it amongst other models in a "grab bag" type of a deal. Before I put any primer to it, I wanted to make sure that it is not some rare model that could bring my friend a safe retirement fund and vacations in Florida

    About the figure: It looks "Asian" as far as face goes. He sports a sword that looks a bit like a katana to me. Guns are obviously an Imperial laser technology. On the base it says" GW99" and "GOOD GUY". Any clue?





    Thanks to all who will take time to read/post here! Much appreciated!

    He is one of Colonel Schaeffer's Last Chancers known as 'Hero'. This model is still available through mail order and the online store so don't worry about it being rare.

    Unfortunatly he wouldn't work as a commissar. Seeing how he's armed with a lasgun and a laspistol. Commissars aren't allowed either one, atleast not to my recolection.

    Well, commissars can't have lasguns but laspistols are part of their default weaponry. He also has a sword which could be used as either a CCW or perhaps a power weapon.

    I actually use this guy (slightly converted) as a member of the commissariat in my heavy weapon teams in my Penal Legion army. Game-wise he is just a standard guardsman but I like the idea of a few 'lower-rank' commissars scattered around the army keeping the convict scum at bay.

    If only his lasgun wasn't connected to his body (by the stock). Then you could easily remove it and replace it with a bolt pistol (which you should ingeniously place to be facing your commander in battle) and then mabye cut off his other hand and put a grenade in it (or is the laspistol part of his arm as well?).

    I found this model on the site some time a go and i also thought he would make a cool junior commissar.

    I do however think that a conversion would be possible, perhaps a boltpistol with stock?

    Or you could change it into a boltgun?
