Way of Saim-Hann Eldar Farseer on Jetbike Conversion




This work in progress is my submission for Fritz's Eldar Farseer contest. I imagine the competition is stiff, and I dont expect victory, but this is a great excuse to finish an idea I have had on a back burner since December. This farseer is made from a jetbike, autarch left arm, Dire Avengers right arm, Mounted high elf mages body and farseers head. Painting yellow fabric is hard to say the least. This is the first yellow robes I have attempted. I have decided to downplay the yellow robes by switching most of them to blue which I am a little better at. I have also switched most of the chasis of the bike to blue too. One of my strengths is in my hand painting, I hand painted the base coat for an Iyanden logo on the chasis of the bike. Look for me to do lots of runes on the edges of the bike and the robes of the farseer. I gots to get going it is due soon!

Very nice. Glad to see you getting in on this.

The competition is definitely stiff for this one.

I like the rune on the nose of the jetbike.

Sadly Darcsoul is not entering. I was looking forward to seeing what he does. It was fun looking at your blog and seeing your entry. We have two different styles of approach. You plan out your model thoroughly with sketches and for the most part stick to it. I sort of just visualise what I want and that vision changes as I build. The end result is usually not even close to what I saw at the beginning. That rune on the chasis was a spur of the moment thing and I think that when it is done will be the most striking part of the model. I am thinking about some sort of back glow behind it... I will hopefully be done tomorrow. I need to get back on track with finishing my Blood Angels for the GT! More to come...
