Colonel Straken stand-in

Here's my version of Colonel Iron Hand Straken from the Imperial Guard Codex - In this case, he's the leader of my regiment using the Straken rules. The body is from an older Catachan Officer I bought in a lot of battered Guard miniatures from eBay, the arms are from the Forgeworld Renegade Militia and the head is from the Forgeworld Elysian Drop Troops. I thought that the arms/weapons fit the equipment of Straken, that they make for a rather nice pose and fit the leader of a bunch of ex-Miner, ex-Gangster Imperial Guardsmen! The shoulderpads are nice and improvised, the maul is rather imposing - perfect! He's just tacked together at the moment, but he's pretty much where I want him to be.
