Default I need bitz for a camp tank commander...

For those who are not familiar with the comedy series Allo' Allo', Lietenant Gruber is a camp WWII german tank commander, who is exceptionally proud of "his little tank".

I am currently building a Malcador, and thought it would be interesting to have a tank commander based on this picture of Gruber: http://www.geocities.com/TelevisionC...littletank.jpg , and have his tank named "My Little Tank" (ironic seeing as a Malcador is a superheavy)

The point is, most of the faces in Warhammer are either robust, stout jawed and masculine, screaming "Death to the enemy!!!!!" or something along those lines, or both. The point is, where can I find a head that looks like Lietenant Gruber?

Either you're going to have to grow GS skills, check the ancient VOID Range, or use a Sentinel operator's head

I did actually consider him, but it might be a bit hard to get rid of that turban. Plus my army is winter themed, so the whole turban thing don't really go. As for using a sentinel operator's head, one of them has his face mostly covered by goggles, and the other one looks pretty manly (I used him for a veteran sergeat :P) Might check out the VOID range though, although to be honest I've never heard of it.
