Welcome to Librarium Online!
hey, a lot of ig players use commissiars, at least ithink theu do
and i was wondering if it is worth it ti use one, seeing as they can kill your most expensive guy
and if you do suggest to use one, please give me some tips on converting a new one , i find the models they have arent the sinister or demanding midel that i am liiking for. the books and stories all talk about the icy cold eyes of the commisiar staring down on the officer watching his every move
a model that would make a gaurd, and everything else, quivver at the sight of him
Yes and no, and heres why:
Ld can help the unit he is in but it cant go down the vox or even help squads nereby so he isnt useful for the +1 to Ld
A Commissiar can be a powerful fighter with a powerfist as he cant be singled out in close combat but the cost is to high for my liking, a power weapon and a bolter is what i would give my Commissiar as you can keep him cheap but still have a good around fighter
Aslo you risk him killing your officer so you may lose your Ld for other squads
A trick some players use is too get a independent commissar and put him with some conscripts so you could have a 50 wound fearless speed-bump
Only take up to one per 1000 points in your army as they cost far two much for what they do

are any other special units worth taking, and any ideas on converting one , so i dont have to use the gw models
Not really, psykers suck, priests suck for what they cost
A standard bearer is kind of a special unit and they are very worth there cost as you get a re-roll for most units within 12" of the command squad and are a lot cheaper then a Commissiar
For 12pts psykers are pretty cheap, they just don't do anything functional for the army, and the preists just keep you from using heavy weapons (sign me up for that).
Blais's Paint Studio-Getting broken armies good soft scores since 2009
any conwersions for a cruel look ing model?
Just use the Commissiar yarrick model as he looks so bad ass and as long as you tell your opponent about it it sould be ok
And best of all NO WORK NEEDED for people who suck at converting (like me)
Aye I agree on the fact that the current GW commisars suck but if your looking to convert one I've a few ideas.
There are some suitable heads in the Cadian Infantry Squad Upgrade Pack on FW. he's got a mean looking face. Use that head on a cadian body sculpt him a little cloak with green stuff. Add some green stuff to the hat and make it more peaked. Add a bit round his sleve to make his uniform more elaborate. An advantage of using a plastic cadian model is it's easy to add whatever weapons combo you like!
Give him a nice paintjob to boot. make his skin all pale and dark shadowy eyes and cheeks.
This is what I intend to do. I'l give u a pic wen/if I'm ever done.
In terms of using one, I'd never put mine in the HQ. I don't want him shooting my officer. I would say that the right idea is to wap one with your conscripts.
I'd say priests are useless. Psykers could be good if you give them honorifica & force weapon and maybe some armour thrown in to. Never tried it myself tho.
forge world cost a pretty penny, cause im in the states
and my green stuff skills arent the best, i dont practice much cause i try to avoid it\
but the ideas are great, it was exactly what i asked for
why are all commissars painted pale and with old baggy eyes?
I use 4 and love them
They are worth it for several reasons
A)leadership having a 100+ men qith 10 LD is awesome
b) its another power weapon or power sword in your command squad which I find really helpful
C) i dunno in my opinion they make really good fluff starters or adders and Im a man on fluff.

Hear the wip, fear the Broadside.
