Another Astra Militarum That Looks a Bit Like WW2 Brits*

* for a given value of “looks like”.

I’m maybe pushing the “look like WW2 Brits” angle with the Officer of the Fleet, but I like this fella anyway. As I was painting up an air observer for the actual WW2 Brits, I’ve given him an RAF coat, while the rest of his uniform’s white. If anyone knows of this being a genuine WW2 uniform, please let me know – though I’ll not hold my breath.

Authenticity aside, I like this chap. I’ve little idea of what he does for the Imperial Guard but he is (IMO) one of the best minis GW ever released. Ever. He’s unusual enough to stand out in a khaki-clad Astra Militarum horde – and has a great expression of disdain on his face. And not a skull to be seen!

Again, I’ve no plans to turn this into an army but I’ll paint up the rest of the advisers for larks. They’re superb figures.
