Hi All,

Haven't worked with AM models before (mostly SM/CSM), but am thinking of building a small force of either AM or Renegades, and want to create my own Commisar/Enforcer rather than use the GW stock models. What do people usually use as the building blocks for a Commisar? As far as I can tell, the GW Commisar models aren't made to mix and match with other AM bits.

Pics of finished models would also be appreciated

Thanks!

There are loads of Commissar models from both GW and other parties.
I'd honestly take a look through the back catalogue and use one of them as a starting point.

Everyone: No.

Thanks, this is quite useful! Is there a specific IG kit I need to go to to find a peaky hat head? I'm not at all familiar with the IG kits, so I have no idea whether this is something I'll find in basically every kit, or just one specific kit.

peaky heads are best acquired by 3rd party or just accumulate by have buying lots of IG kits, the IG command kit comes with 1, hellhound another, baneblade another, older LRBT another; look at 3rd party link: or others..
