Nice! And I thought I was going to have to use bretonnian mem at as heads!

Still need those space cowboy/wild west heads

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity lasts forever.

Considering also your duty as a warrior you should not waver. Because there is nothing more auspicious for a warrior than a righteous war.

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.

I strive to charge only what the post office charges, in most cases

Hot dang, did you ever deliver on those feudal worlders. Super excited to get my hands on a squad and finally set up my veterans properly!

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.

Really nice work! Any chance of seeing some new heads wearing helmets that would fit in well with existing manufacturers? In other words not helmets based on historical helmets, but more grimmer darker sci-fi?
