Female Imperial Guard commissar model painted

Well as you can see my painting time really has been improved. I have really had a good amount of time to sit down and get cracking. If I could complain about anything however, its the poor lighting in my living room. I may need to buy a small day glow lamp to paint under.

Anyway, I have something of a confession to make. I think I have developed a small addiction to finding rare imperial guard miniatures on eBay. It started with Rogue Trader guard miniatures so that I could create a rogue trader platoon, but recently I have found myself hunting down some limited edition models. The first of which was this... the female commissar from Games Day 96 I believe- Introducing Commissar Balbreagher.



This model was a joy to paint. Between the two commissars I have painted recently, I really feel like I am learning a lot about painting, particularly black, which I have regularly avoided like the plague.

I have also just found a little bargain with this miniature, but she might have to wait until I'm painting my next platoon.

  1. A very nice paintjob on a lovely model. Have to say I share your addiction - I got the Necromunda Adeptus Arbites models and had to paint them up.

    1. Im glad you like it. I'm also a huge fan of the Arbites. I've had a bash at painting up some of my own here: http://ajsgamingworld.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/adeptus-arbites-long-time-coming.html
