It is Ciaphas Cain. There is a Jurgen model that goes with him to make the situation absolutely perfect.

After seeing WarriorFish's rendition I may have to paint one just for a simple display piece. I love it. I don't even play guard.

Well not much of a wip shot as you can't really tell the difference but had some spare time last night to get a few more minis blued up

Half way there! Unfortunately I'll be outta town for 2 weeks so this could be it for a while. :(

The bases are great!
One of the best things, which I didn't realise at the time is that because they are solid resin the pins really set in there and form a firm base for the model
Too often with the regular GW bases the pins could move freely in the cavity underneath and it wouldn't take much to snap the glue bond
These so far seem unlikely to suffer the same issue, plus the added heft of the solid resin is a good counter balance to the metal mini's

I was actually thinking about putting my next order in last night as it takes a couple of weeks for them to arrive from across the pond... :ermm:

They look awesome, you should try and squeeze them in somehow :D Seeing WF's Commissar reminded me what an epic model it is so I'm keen to see your one painted up too :tu: A Commissar model for a Commissar is fitting after all!

 

Also kudos for the batch painting Mordian production line. It's a lot of work but the end result is always worth it :tu:

Anvil and Artel do awesome work

Thx Arkaniss. Unfortunately (but not surprisingly) I didn't get them done for the tournament I'm attending end of the month. Hopefully I can get them finished soon though.

In the meanwhile I had to quickly kitbash a MoO for the same event. This one is temporary as I have another in mind. These bits were just closer to hand.

I like the MoO! What model is it based on?

Its one of the old Basilisk loaders, I grabbed the Voxcaster from the Scion kit, removed the hailer (badly...) and then cut the hand and phone from the operators arm and replaced the clenched fist. The Servo Skull is also from the Scion kit :) 

 

I do have a more Mordianian one in mind for later ;)

Well he's not the prettiest model I've painted but will do the job for next weekends event

gallery_87434_11578_634703.jpg

Looks like theres 18 ish ppl signed up for the friendly event

Although someone thought bring a castellan, 2 crusaders and 2 warglaives is appropriate <_<
Hopefully there's something done about that
I don't feel bad for bringing my shadowsword ;)

Nice kitbash! Looking forward to hearing about the event. And you know, more knights on the battlefield just means more chances to tally up some knight kills for your shadowsword...

Because I have a problem, especially when it comes to Commissars I just ordered this guy... :whistling:

Meanwhile Anvil is releasing 3 new ones shortly too which I will also likely purchase :blush:


That model is awesome. Would make a great officer or commissar.

How does he scale next to GW minis?

Yes I will probably switch between using him as either. Not sure what colours I'll paint him

I haven't assembled him yet (or washed him...)
Their other models have been fairly close in scale though so I suspected fairly close

WF would be able to say he's already painted his

That might be a great option for a tank commander. He looks like Erwin Rommel.

I could totally see him cut in half and placed in a tank top hatch... the coffee cup NEEDS to stay though. Thag smug look with the cup in hand is my favorite part.

That's clearly a tea cup ;) He stands taller and slimmer than GW models as Artel W's scale is more "normal" but that's fine to make a heroic commissar stand out more :D
