Any way to see a scale pic of those heads next to something iconic? They are perfect for some fantasy kitbashes, but I don't want to order them without knowing if they will make fantasy minis look like bobble heads.

I don't own any fantasy models to show them on, best I can give you is this from the internet...



If Cadian heads are sized to work, than mine should do fine as well.


So these are intended for one more flavor of guard conversions or something? Unfortunately, I don't own any IG, so we seem to be at an impasse! I'll just have to wait until some kind soul with some fantasy miniatures can post a scale shot.

Do these have some sort of tech element (a comm headset or something)? Or would they pass as fantasy?

Thank you for your patience.

You are correct, they are designed for a feudal world regiment. There are no tech elements at all, except for the officer heads.

I have some old-school metal Commissars;




Originally when these were cast, some were produced with both arms, some with one arm, and some with no arms.

Citadel Miniatures produced a Human Clothed Arms Sprue:




However these have a pouch on the rounded shoulder and are clearly meant as a BDU, or a Battle Dress Uniform for a Guardsman.

I started looking for alternate arms for the Commissars, hopefully with details such as epaulettes.

In my first-ever order from the great people at Mad Robot Miniatures, I purchased your HA-0701 Imperial Officer Arms and HA-0201 Greatcoat Officer Arms:








Here are my metal Commissars being converted, Work-In-Progress:

Thank you very much! Here are updated photos of the Commissars in my Steel Legion army. The first one uses HA-0201 Greatcoat Officer Arms:




The second uses bits from two of your products; first off, the left-hand chainsword from HA-0701 Imperial Officer Arms and right-hand Power Fist from HCOM-07 Commissar Arms:

A great look. Makes me think of those heavy breastplates sometimes used by machinegunners in WW1, which I suspect was among your inspirations for the bits in the first place?

@Private Benjamin
The arms are a good fit, but I think you should probably shorten them a bit. Those old GW models are stockier and more "heroic scale" than Mad Robot's stuff and the arms look very long on those bodies.

Wow...your shipping prices are very reasonable. I was thinking about picking up an arm or two to test out on my primaris figs and was pleasantly surprised to see that shipping them wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg.

Does Mad Robot produce some closed fist hands, with nothing in them? I thought I saw an announcement once.

I went through this thread a ways and couldn't find anything, so perhaps I dreamed it.

No, not currently. For fists or for holding something?

Nope, just plain hands in a fist, or hands pointing. I'm trying to avoid the 'hand weapon in one hand, pistol in the other' trope on some figures I'm working on.

Maybe I saw them on a plastic set. I thought it was you though since you produce so many useful arm/hand/weapon sprues.

On another note the feudal soldiers look great.

Anyone else think the shock trooper officer arm looks a lil wonky? I think its due to the lack of tension/straighten plasma pistol arm, especially so in this image attached to the torso.

Or it’s a very nice leman Russ alternative that cost more but is made out of a different material and shipping reflects the fact that it weighs a bit and you live a few thousand miles from where it’s from. Well done!

Mad robot are brilliant company who make great stuff and I wish they were closer so I wouldn’t have to have up until I needed a big order to make it worth while with the shipping. Got a platoon of there infantry and want more. Would love these tanks too but would have to get rid of my old leman Russ tanks cos they would look crap in comparison.

Well, everyone is entitled his opinion but, I fail to see the "little better than a recaster" issue on this one.

As an owner of multiples of ALL Leman Russes variants (and I include the FW ones),
I welcome these tanks.

These tanks are Mad Robots original designs.
You may like which I do, or not the said design, but these are original work[u].

3 modulable tanks with elements from WWII german tanks and
weapon options to make them playable as GW Leman Russes.

Engineering such kits take months of work, making renders, precasting prototypes, making modification etc...
before even starting casting one final kit. Far, far away from just recasting something else work.
So please credit where credit is due, and keep the discussion on informed basis.

You may like which I do, or not the said design, but these are original work[u].

3 modulable tanks with elements from WWII german tanks and
weapon options to make them playable as GW Leman Russes.

Engineering such kits take months of work, making renders, precasting prototypes, making modification etc...
before even starting casting one final kit. Far, far away from just recasting something else work.
So please credit where credit is due, and keep the discussion on informed basis.


As I've said before, the real action is over on our Facebook Page where I interact with people all the time about what they like and don't like. I appreciate that some folks get it.

But hey go ahead pat them on the back for making a worse and more expensive version of a crap GW model.


So I'll put you down for one?


Greatness in comment form.

I wouldn’t worry the guy is a troll just check his profile, just 22 posts all negative, well except a tongue up GW’s arse but I think that was just for reaction results. The guy is a troll and as the good man mentioned above “don’t feed the troll”

Steve nice reply by the way ha ha ha I’ll take his when I get paid again

I would like to chip in here, your products are on my wish list and have been for years, so much win. I have had the pleasure of your products (some wonderful heads) and they are a far superior quality.

The Galahad looks stunning, and a much more believable design for a battle tank. No idea what the numpty was on about, not even remotely close in design to a Russ.

Just wanted to chip in, not blowing smoke, but guys like you keep this universe interesting.

The hyperbole isn't helping your argument any. This isn't a 'tweak here and there'... aside from having weapons in a similar configuration, it looks nothing like a Leman Russ.

Indeed.
As I wrote above, I see no sense in the argument made.
This is original tank design, period.

Folks, I reckon don't waste any more time on that particular discussion.

Well, MAN SE might have some words in regards to how original of a design it is... Those words would not have any force of law behind them though and even if they did there's obviously enough to make it a distinct derivative work from the original. GW would have zero though, given that other than the broad strokes of "It's got a turret and a hull-mounted gun and the option for side guns" there's not much design similarity.

Very tempted by it given that there's always a use for tanks, but knowing that I want to pick up a number of fairly expensive kits in the near future (Chaos Knights, SoB, etc.) makes me a bit hesitant. Really cool design though, so it may win out in the end.

That tank looks sweet. Reminiscent of a Panzer V with the sloped armor front.

Definitely some good panther flavor in it.
And a sweet tank commander to boot.

@mortar_crew There will be many more tank commanders to come as well


There are still 10 or so pre-orders remaining, at a reduced price. If you want to get a good deal and support a small business in the process, why not pre-order one today?
