Within the ranks of the Astra Militarum, Commissars stand as relentless officers tasked with upholding morale, discipline, and unwavering loyalty. These feared and brooding figures possess the authority to swiftly execute any soldier who fails in their duties. However, it is their unwavering devotion to the Imperium and their fanatical bravery that inspire equal fervor in those who find themselves under their watchful gaze.
This multipart plastic kit allows you to construct a formidable Commissar, representing a disciplinary officer of the Officio Prefectus. Adorned in the foreboding longcoat and the distinctive high-peaked cap that mark their station, this miniature is armed with a bolt pistol, delivering the Emperor’s justice with equal measure to friend or foe. Furthermore, you have the choice to equip the Commissar with either a vicious chainsword or a single-edged power sword, both accompanied by a wrist-mounted power pack. To elevate this grim overseer above the rank and file, the kit includes a scenic rubble base, providing an imposing presence on the battlefield.
With this model, you can embody the commanding presence and unyielding authority of a Commissar, enforcing discipline and inspiring the troops of your Astra Militarum forces to fight with unwavering loyalty.

How to paint the Commissar set
- Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace
Find a clean and well-lit area to work on your miniature. Gather all the necessary tools, including brushes, paints, and water for rinsing brushes.
- Step 2: Prime the Miniature
Apply a thin and even coat of Chaos Black spray primer to the Commissar. This will provide a solid base for the paint to adhere to.
- Step 3: Base Colors
Start by applying the base colors to the miniature. Use Cadian Fleshtone for the skin, Abaddon Black for the coat, and Leadbelcher for any metallic areas. Apply thin layers of paint, allowing each layer to dry before moving on to the next.
- Step 4: Details and Highlights
Add details to the Commissar using different colors. Use Mephiston Red for the sash and Balthasar Gold for any ornate parts. Apply Retributor Armour for highlighting the metallic areas.
- Step 5: Washes
Apply washes to add depth and shading to the miniature. Use Nuln Oil for the coat, Reikland Fleshshade for the skin, and Agrax Earthshade for the metallic areas. Apply the washes carefully, allowing them to flow into the recesses to create shadows and definition.
- Step 6: Fine Details
Focus on the finer details of the Commissar. Use Averland Sunset for any insignia or markings, and Mephiston Red for the lenses or optics. Use a fine brush for precision.
- Step 7: Base and Finish
Paint the base of the miniature using Stirland Mud for texture. Once dry, you can add grass, rocks, or other scenic elements to enhance the base. Finally, apply a coat of Munitorum Varnish to protect your paint job and give the miniature a professional finish.
