Hey there! So my GF wants to get into the game and she really likes Mechanicus. Only problem is she wants a female HQ type to lead the army. My google-foo is weak, the only good model k found was 48mm (wtf) help me! :chrome:

Raging heroes is soon to release the model. Just have her build the rest of the army before she buys her HQ.

She liked that one! lol anything else anyone can come up with?

Also this is the 48mm model. It strange cause it says 48mm but opi don't know if that's just the height or the scale. If it's just he overall height it's ok: http://wargameexclusive.com/shop/imperial-soldiers-miniatures/female-adeptus-mechanicus/

Its because its being lifted off the ground. the raging heroes model is also very tall.

If you're good with working with metal and kitbashing, perhaps you could convert one up for her? I think a Sisters of Battle Hospitaller could make a pretty good base, add some servo-arms and mechatendrites to that and you could be onto a winner.

I think if he could do that well he wouldn't be here asking

In Titanicus its revealed that Titan Legions have diplomats, senior figures who represent the legion to other imperial institutions.
These guys look almost entirely human, though they are heavily internally modified.
Electric blue eyes might give them away, a few discrete dataports or their superhuman strength.

Not all devotees of the machine god completely abandon their sense of what it means to be human or reject conventional aesthetic beauty.
Politically within the mechanicus it might be useful to take a more extreme machinist approach and reject the flesh, put square boxy augmetic eyes in and replace your genitals with auspex arrays but for a battlefield commander who may have to liaise with Guard or Ecclesiarchy, it would pay to look mostly human.

For this reason, any robed female model will do- and fantasy has a wealth of those.

You could even glue on a servo backpack to complete the look.

Iron Mother Directrix or Aurora might fit the bill.

Without getting into heavy/difficult conversion, your best option is probably a robed woman with one or both arms separate (and maybe the head too), so you can swap one or both limbs (and maybe head) for something more mechanical looking. And as =Angel= says, you may be able to glue on some sort of backpack too.
