Hey I sappose I am the new guy? Well I just wondered if any one was interested in the fact that I am converting a Commissar into a Heroic Senior Officer to lead my Imperial Guard army. I am kinda named after the character. But it is gonna be really cool.
well I thought about were it should be and really I dont want some SM or some thing telling me how I should convert it, any ways I was gonna have a commisar body, give him a power weapon and storm bolter since those are allowed to Heroic Senior officers, apply heroic senior officer rules to him and use some green stuff to add details like maybe a cigar or some thing... I am a ways off from making him but just wanted to get my creative juices flowing.
Now, there really are no SMs...but you know this already, right Just kidding of course. This really should be in the Conversions forum. There are many people who'd never visit the Imperial Guard board, yet still are very skilled in the art of conversion and in the visual manner of the guard. Nobody will tell you to put sm-shoulderpads on him or anything, neither will they (we) think less of an IG conversion than they (we)do of say a Chaos Dragon or Defiler. I do almost only IG conversions at the moment.Originally Posted by General Commissar Breaker
Well, now to the real question(s).
Which one of the Commissars are you planning to use?
I guess the Powerfist-one goes out, since the fist is quite integrated in the model. Do you plan on having him leading from the frontline shooting his Bolter or standing beside a Mortar behind some solid cover?
Do you have any fluff that we should know about, like has he been wounded earning himself some bionics or whatever.
If you plan on a shooty HSO I'd suggest the axe wielding commissar as a basis, since the other one (he who also exists in a Steel legion version) looks straight ahead, walking.
How much experience do you have with Greenstuff?
Are you keeping the head? THe Commissarhats are quite easily recognisable and might take some of the effect away if they stay on, you could swap the whole head or just give him a helmet or even give him a new hair with GS.
Hope to see some pics on the progress.
Well the thinkg his is weapon set is based off of a Heroic Senior Officer And I have choosen the Storm Bolter and Powersword, I will work on getting bits and there is sopme Fluff considering what he is. But he is still sapposed to be a Commissar, a General Commissar so he can lead my army. I didnt want a plain old model leading my army that would be boring. So I am gonna take him and turn him into a bad ass general. As for his fluff he more or less has never been injured in combat because bionics..... well put it simple with all the things I am giving him he is already running at 130 points and I dont think adding any more points make any opponent happy
I like the idea of a commissar taking charge from a incompetent guard officer. I think it would add a real character to your army. Im using a few commissars as my officers to save money.
