Hey guys, Caleb with White Metal Games here, with another fun conversion. This time, a farseer on jetbike! With the exception of the Chapterhouse Farseer on jetbike compatible kit, I don't see a lot of options for these out there. So when a friend asked me to convert up something along these lines, I couldn't resist the opportunity! This isn't as in depth a tutorial as you might be used to, but I think you can get the gist from what I'll outline below.
To start, I gathered up some bits. I wasn't sure what I would need, and in the end I didn't use everything featured below. But IMHO it helps to have more bits than you need to give you a few options with every conversion. I grabbed an assortment of both elf, eldar, dark elf and dark eldar bits, as well as a spare ( mostly assembled) jetbike from a previous eldar project.
So I decided on a more dynamic pose, with the Farseer riding sort of standing up on the bike, like leading his troops heroically into battle. Now I just need a lance to mirror this dynamic stance.
I scale the lance beside a spear from a high elf model to get a sense of size. This way I know about where I need to trim.
If you liked this eldar conversion, be sure to check out a Wraithknight vs. Bloodthirster diorama we did a few months ago!
Up next, WMG is excited for the pending release of the Tyranid Codex in line with 6th Edition rules! Check out this Tyranid BioBattery (Counts as Vengeance Battery) we recently mocked up (WIP) for the 11th Co. GT in November!
