Just get heaps of plastic bitz and make your own, you could use some Khrone (fantasy) if you chissled the icons off

Hey. :)

You could create a Commander from the spare pieces you have? Or you could use the Sly Marbo model, and alter his weapons to your liking. Or use one of the Catachan Officers.

Later. ;)

The only thing i dont like about him is the power fist game wise. the model is cool.

My commander is a conversion from the officer with plasma pistol.

What about Colonel Schaeffer?

Myself, I just used a regular plastic Catachan and used various stuff from my bitz box to tool him up. Catachan officers really shouldn't be too ostentatious as they are generally promoted from within the ranks, rather than belonging to some "officer class".

Actually i will be getting 2 of schaeffer soon so i'll make one the actual colonel and make one a conversion for a new commander.

Catachan fluff dictates that their commanders are chosen by the men around them due to the lack of actual leadership schooling on Catachan.

So your commander could be a younger soldier for its worth... if he has the greatest leadership aspirations then he will rise through the ranks quicker than someone who wants to be a dog soldier.

yeah i suppose..
i might put him on a big senic base or something though so he stands out a bit.
