Lovely work, looks like he walked straight from the Imperial propaganda posters ( including the bolt pistol that kept bemusing him, as he always stuck to his trusty laspistol ).

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

Thanks for comments

Commissar was based on the cover of "For the Emperor", on this illustration his weapon looks more like bolt than las pistol.

Jurgen has kettle attached to rucksack.Cups are propably hidden somewhere inside

It is, same as on Last Ditch, it's one of the in-jokes of the series that the covers are like those Imperial propaganda posters Cain sometimes complains about - with Cain looking every part the heroic Commissar, bolt pistol included. Both him and Amberley comment on him sticking with his trusty laspistol, which he is a deadly shot with. Other such poster elements to notice on the covers are the often exaggerated muscles/chest, being surrounded by (dead) enemies, and Cain being alone (with Jurgen nowhere to be seen)
