Hey, that looks pretty good. I never realized how much the pony-tail dragged that model down. But I recommend painting him before you do the characterization - it's amazing how much will occur to you about a character's background as you decide on what colours he will have and why.
Good call, cause I already started painting him last night. Okay, will do.

Roy Seras prefers to keep his Eldar Shuriken Catapult hidden, knowing that if an Imperial official sees him with it, that he will be instantly reported. As such, he keeps the Shuriken Catapult under his coat. To represent this, it takes two actions for Seras to draw the weapon, instead of just one; one to unbutton his coat, and another to ready the weapon.
Background- Roy Seras, a clever, calculating person, is someone who easily fits the profile of a Rogue Trader. A profiteering scoundrel who can weasel you from your money with no effort. But when confronted by high authority, he crumbles.
Originally part of the Adeptus Terra, Seras left them for a life of riches. He, of course, didn't leave empty handed. His signature weapon, an Eldar Shuriken Catapult, was stolen from a research lab. Claiming that it needed moving to another location, Seras stole away on a small ship, with the Shuriken Catapult and a small fortune on board. During a stay on a remote planet, Seras met Valerio at a town market.
"What sort of equipment do you carry, trader?" asked Valerio.
Unknowing, Seras pulled out the standard display. "Only the finest in ranged and close-combat weaponry." he said. "This blade can cleave a tree in only two strokes."
Valerio looked around to see if anyone was watching her. Feeling safe, she flashed her Inquisitorial badge. "Do you carry Inferno Bolts?" she asked. "I need some."
Seras' eyes widened at what he saw. Shining in the sun, was the Inquisitorial symbol, and on it was clearly the symbol for the Ordo Hereticus.
Was she here for me?, thought Seras. What does she know? I must keep calm.
He clenched his already sweaty fists.
Clearing his throat, he said. "Of course, only the finest for madam inquisitor." Seras disappeared behind a curtain.
Jari Tilam turned to Valerio, "Do you really think he can be trusted?" he asked.
"If the honey is sweet enough, even the most stubborn ants will come." whispered Valerio, "I often need supplies the most when I'm farthest from the source. He can alleviate this problem."
Seras returned holding a small black box. "This is all I have, will that be all?" Seras asked avoiding Valerio's eyes.
"No, Roy Seras," Seras' shoulders fell, "You do not think I didn't recognize you. Your face is very well known on Terra." said Valerio quietly.
Oh, no! I will be drawn and quartered, thought Seras wildly.
"I have a deal, provide me with the supplies I need, your ship and your service, and I will eradicate your name from record, clearing you. Do we have a deal?"
Seras eyed her suspiciously, "Sure, I'll do it." he said uneasily.
"Good," said Valerio, relieving Seras of the small black box, "Pack up your things, we leave immediately."

And he saw that it was good.
The character is great. As far as the painting goes, I'd say: tidy up that eyepatch! The patch and his hair are really what define this character's feature and they need to be distinctive and distinct. Consider perhaps giving him a red eyepatch to make him stand out from all the other Von Castellan conversions out there.
And had you thought of making him black?
No, not really. What would YOUR reasoning be behind this?And had you thought of making him black?
I like the red eyepatch thing. I may just put thin black slits on that as well, so that the bionic eye can see through the patch.
1) Not enough ethnic minority characters in 40k.What would YOUR reasoning be behind this?
2) Well, maybe not black, but he kind of reminds me of Captain Nemo from the League of Extraordinary Gentlement (comic, not film). I can really see him with dark skin - and it would make him stand out from all the other Castellan clones.
