This model was my first update to my 6th Edition Eldar. My other Farseers are over 10 years old and one can not go to war with a wack looking warlord. I really wanted to carry over the look of my old Farseer from back in the day. This was also my first paint job of one of GW’s latest plastics. I have to say, I’m really impressed with the quality. These really are the Cadillac of plastic miniatures. The edges are sharp, and the intricate multi-part kit goes together smoothly. It was super easy to paint, but kind of a let down.
A Farseer on foot is tough to play in 6th edition. At toughness 3, he basically gets insta-gibbed every game. Too many mid range, S6 weapons out there. So the best way to field him is mounted on a jet bike. I currently have one in production now.
As you can see, the progression of my Farseers is pretty crazy. I don’t know what I was thinking with that first one. I was probably still searching for a theme. The second one was painted to match my Avatar, which has been lost to the warp. I always loved the color scheme, so I decided to carry it through to the current generation. I think I did a pretty good job interpreting him. Hope you all enjoy.
