I just thought I'd share this with other Imperial Guard players. I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I think that the IG senior officer model is a liitle on the dull side. A very good sculpt, but It lacks the dynamisism of some of the other models. So I went looking around for some other models to convert and use as my senior officer. Eventually, I came across the Necromuna Kal Jericho model. With that billowing trenchcoat and twin laspistols he really captures the "Heroic" senior officer. Now we all know that laspistols are for pussies, so I cut them off and used two bolt pistols from the space marine sprues. (If you dont have any, you can buy the old assault marine arm sprue for about Â£2.50 from the online store. You'll get two with that i think.) I painted him up in my regimental officer uniform scheme and he looks superb! Everyone I play always says how cool he looks. So if you fancy, give it a go. You'll have a unique and characterful model leading your force. In case you're wondering how to make those two pistols "legal," buy two bolt pistols from the armoury and include them as a twin linked pistol as a trademark item. This works very well for me (Plus, i always hit on a shooting re-roll heh heh! )
A very unique commander, aye?
But if all of these LO'sers use it, it will use his uniqueness xD
Im using it though, i don't even do IG!
I am Narcotick. Fear me.

A post like this and no pics? Whats wrong with you Will J?
Sounds cool btw. Altough taking the same item from the armoury twice is iligeal. I guess you can always say the other one is a trademark item.
I can't seem to find the model that your talking about on the GW Online Store. I can't seem to find the model that your talking about. From what little I've read from other sites, it seems to be an out of stock/print model that you can't get anymore. Is this true? That would be so saddening, because thats a FANTASTIC model and would, like Will J said, would make an excellent IG commander model.
Anyone with information as to where to get this model would be most appricated!!!
You don't like the IG Commander model? I thought it was awesome personally, especially for Cadian officers. Remember, IG Commanders are not Space Marines. They are stern and devoted men who command thousands of troops and tanks and therefore don't really need to get their hands very dirty themselves.
Now Lieutenants and Captains and other smaller level leaders are a different story. They not only organize and dispense justice, but they are expected to fight to (To quote one of my favorite movies: "You are ordered to stay there and fight, and that means YOU Lieutenent!!!") alongside their men.
In the end I just think that it makes more sense for the Colonel or high level officer to have more of an imposing or even regal pose as opposed to a combat monster pose, but that's just me.
I agree with you, but I think GW's idea of military virtues are a little skewed.Originally Posted by H0urg1ass
In the real world, the best high level officers are intelligent, tactically gifted and probably a bit imposing. They don't fight.. that's what the troops are for.
In GWs world, they're, as the name suggests 'heroic' and inspiring. They kill loads of orks single handedly, or do great and fantastic deeds to inspire their troops.
There's room for both sides. I personally love the grim looking Cadian officer, so much so that I'm actually going to use him as a platoon leader (I have no senior officer, since I'm just inducting guardsmen, not using them as a full force.) He just has that 'I can watch hundreds of men die without so much as a twitch' look to him. But I'll agree.. Kal Jericho does look more like he fits the title 'heroic.'
