Just curious, as I am thinking way down the road of building a custom IG regiment that lives in the desert. Is it not kosher to make/customize a Commissar to fit with the army's theme? Seems all anyone ever uses are the "Generalissimo" models. Is there a fluff/rules reason for this, or is it possible to build/modify something to make one that fits in with the crowd? I've seen variant standard bearers, officers, vets, pretty much everything EXCEPT Commissars. What gives?
Well, generally, the stereotypical commissars are their uniform, and they are such 'good examples' that they wouldn't dare compromise their uniforms! "What d-d-do you mean i-i-its minus 80??".
Yeah, If you want, you can customize him up a bit, but try to at least keep the hat, and the greatcoat if possible, anything else is fair game.

Eh I say the hat is the only thing that you "must have" on a Commissar. Other then that makes him more apart of the group, but just as a tip you may want to keep his uniform to a minimum. Maybe put on a few medals but not to flashy, also you need to keep the air of ego/confidence.
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
oooow, goody! commissars! my favourite!
ok, if you want a junior-commissar, or cadet-commissar:
use this model: kazango!
ill put up some other ideas laters, gotta meet my accountant now!
edit: ok, all my finances are up to spec!
you could take the ibram gaunt model:
and add some more fabric to his cloak with greenstuff so it looks more like the ones the tallarn wear.
or you could do a more extensive conversion:
take this guy: desert raider sergeant
and buy this forgeworld set:
cadian upgrade set
this FW set comes with a nifty peaked head, cut off the tallarn's head, insert cadians head, tara! (you'll have loads of extra gear now, so you can give some tallarn cadian helmets and such, making for a more diverse force)
if you are going forgeworld you could also get this kit: tallarn equipment, that way you can add some more details, or perhaps customize a new desert force by combining cadian GW plastics with the FW cadian upgrade and the tallarn equipment sprue.

How does that sound? Will the group suffer from the lack of uniformity or benefit?
Good luck, looking forward to seeing what you make of it!
As a quick add on to HeZu's advice: there's also a head with a peaked hat on the new vehicle sprue, which you'll probably wind up having anyway.

thats a good one! the vehicle sprue indeed has a peaked hat, it'll be a lot cheaper too!
