Welcome to Librarium Online!
Is there anyway to build an army around Commissar Yarrick? Need some suggestions to build one. Got one for myself one as a collector piece but intend to play it just for fun.
Well, look at what Yarrick brings to the table.
The usual Lord Com stuff, plus Fearless, a stubborn aura, re-rolls in HtH for his buddies, T4, EW, coming back and baddies re-rolling wounds against him. He's also a lot better in a fight, for a human.
All for around twice the cost of a Lord Commissar with similar equipment.
He's obviously best in a mob of guardsmen sticking around in combat indefinitely, plus he can actually win some combats. Try him in a big blob with more blobby/HtH oriented units, backed up by the usual firepower to bring down light mech and redirect assaults to his core of unmovable guardsmen. No Retreat will be a problem, so make sure he brings plenty of meat.

Give all the sergeants power weapons and add Straken or Creed to give them furious charge.
The great thing about this? It can be a counter charge unit, with
5 S7 I1 power fist attacks
20 S4 I4 power weapon attacks
87 S4 I4 attacks
(Yarrak+ 5 combined squads each with heavy weapon, special weapon and sarg with power wep, add 5 attacks if you don't take any heavy weapons)
All of them get to re-roll failed hits. Who says IG can't do combat?
