Imperial Guard - Rebasing Project (Part 12 - Commissar Yarrick)

On the whole I avoid named characters when building armies. I've never really liked the idea of them, preferring to play my own chapters/forces and so on. That doesn't always gel with having a named character in the army (certainly with Space Marines).

I have only two exceptions - Yarrick and some Tau characters (Farsight and Aun'Va - neither of which are yet built/painted). All are for the same reason: I got them accidentally. Either as part of ebay lots (Yarrick) or as a result of inheriting the army (Tau).

As with a lot of my models, this is an old, old Yarrick mini. I'm not sure of the exact date, but I did find a reference that said it was pictured in the 2nd Ed. rulebook, which would place it in the early 1990s.
