Does this look like a good farseer?

If it ain't human, and it ain't from the warp, then it must be Xenos.

So since i dislike resin because of miscast and that stuff... does this look enough like a farseer with singing spear?( it will only be used in friendly games)

Looks too much like a Dire Avenger to me, a better idea is to scrap the Pistol and change the head :)

I say you just have to change the head IMHO

maybe just use a helmetless one, or some sort of HE head

hmm I don't realy have a clue what kind of helm/head i should use otherwise any suggestions? and what about a sword instead of a pistol?

as for Tom,
I don't have any high elf heads... and the heads i have of the eldar are kinda mean looking.... but I gues I can look around for a good head :) .

what you could do is to cut off and file down the trojan mohawk portion of his helmit to look more like a ghost helm, and you can ditch the pistol for an open palmed guardian crewman hand or something to make him look like hes casting a spell or warding something off.

yeah maybe just sand it down a little smoother than paint it up :D (maybe do glowing eyes :P, and a glowing greenstuff ball coming out of his hand would be amazing)

Any chance of giving him a cape for his back attached from his shoulder pads?

Could try making one out of greenstuff...... I think that would give it more of a HQ/Farseer look.

The spear is from the dire avengers set.

As for farseer Oz i'm afraid not.... i'm not so skilled in the greenstuf/sculpting thing.

was thinking a bit more like this, but if you filed the top a bit more smoothly what you have would look pretty good too.

That particular model looks too much like a Dire Avenger because it is a Dire Avenger Exarch build. Spend the 22.50 I think it is and pick up the Farseer with 3 Warlock kit - it is totally worth it if you have two guardians and a wraithlord or wraithguard unit. Or pick up Eldrad, all the eldar folks are all over hit nuts 24/7.
