I finally managed to finish painting my Lord Commissar after much putting off and avoiding as I wasn't sure what colours to go for.
In the end I decided I didn't want to go for an all black look and decided to paint his trousers and the inside of the cloak a cream colour as though he had decided to where his dress troursers.
This was also my first attempt to paint a power sword with blue "lightining" highlights. I was quite pleased with the finished effect. When I next paint a power sword this way I will focus the lightening in the middle of the blade with thinner strands towards the edges.
