So just a newly built model today.  This is Commissar Vierziger.  It's a slight tweak of the Commissar plastic model.  I've used a left arm from the Scion sprue, added a parchment bit from the space marines, and a sternguard sheathed power sword to complete.  I like the dynamic pose that was the end result and it really looks like he's got a list of people to put down if they don't do their best and then some while he's extolling them forward.

Commissar Vierziger started his career at the Friesland Naval Academy headed for a career as a naval line officer, when he was noticed by a Lord Commissar presenting a guest lecture series.  He was subsequently transferred to the Schola Progenium on Newland where he finished his training as a Commissar.  He was then assigned to the Cymru Sub-Sector Fleet and has served with distinction ever since.  Vierziger's one odd quirk is one that seems to keep the men around him slightly off balance is his odd way in combat.  He seems to go into a sort of serene trance like state where his ability to cause death and destruction to the enemy takes over his normally stern demeanor.  His men will follow him into battle willingly, but more than a few admit that they do so fearfully as well.
I'm really happy with how this on came together and he'll be fun to get to lead a shore party not too far into the future I hope.  The fluff for him is still in a state of slight flux, I'm not 100% satisfied with it yet.  Something about it still seems a bit off.  Anyway, that's it for now and enjoy the quick new blog post until I see you next time.


  1. Looks cool. A simple, but effective conversion!

  2. Can...not...resist... (queue the disco music)

    Looks to me like he's: Staying alive, staying alive! Ah, ah, ah, ah, staying ALIIIIIIiiiiiIIIIIIVVVe.....

  3. Haha, I like the idea behind the list. You should make sure to write some lines or text if you can, then put a red line through a few of them, as if he already took care of those interlopers.

  4. Glad he's so popular, since he was such a characterful model to convert.

  5. LOL good one Cheef! I sort of see him more as Singing In the Rain....
