"Armed" Farseer on Jetbike


There he is.  The leader of my army, all ready to go.  The arm is actually from a Dire Avenger Exarch, and it is magnetized at the shoulder, so I can swap it out for a spear of I wanted (this is the Witchblade).

Now I am working on doing something a bit more impressive with his base.  I have a plan worked out and some work started, so hopefully I’ll have pictures of some of the progress up later today or tomorrow.

Farseer on Jetbike

I finished up the main portion of my Jetbike Farseer tonight.  Now all that is left is to finish his arms.  At the last minute I decided to magnetize his arm for a spear or a sword, so I put the magnet in the body, but now I need to do some work on the arm to make things fit.

Here he is in all his painted glory.



Completed Warlock Jetbikes

The Warlock Jetbikes for my Eldar force are now complete and awaiting riders.



WIP: Seer Council Modelled

I finished up the conversions needed for the Seer Council this morning.  Now to prime and paint.

The bodies of the Warlocks are Shining Spears, the spears are from High Elf Sea Guard warriors, and the Sword are from Wood Elf Glade Guards.

The Autarch:


The Farseer:


WIP: Autarch Jetbike

The modeling work on the Autarch’s jetbike is nearing completion. In order to add on the fusion gun, I decided to hack off one side of the shuriken catapult and then mounted the fusion gun in its place. I then took the barrel I removed, and mounted it next to the original barrel to keep that twin-linked look.  The greenstuff needs to be cleaned up, but otherwise it worked pretty well.

Then for the Autarch himself, I removed his head, and used a Dire Avenger helmeted head as a replacement.  For the Mandiblasters, I cut down a nail and mounted it to the sides of the helmet with greenstuff.  Some more embellishment on the helmet is needed along with some cleanup, but it’s coming along nicely.


Finally, I added magnets into the bottom of all the jetbikes for their stands, and then added the poles to the back of the Warlock bikes.


Next thing to do is to assemble the Warlocks and the Farseer.  Then start converting the spears and swords that they will be wielding.  Then I can finally start on the painting.

WIP: Seer Council and Autarch

My new models arrived today, so I was able to dig in and start working on them tonight.  I managed to get the mold lines on pretty much everything cleaned up and the bike bodies assembled.  I will glue the hood of the bike on once the body is painted just to make things easier.

Next up is to start the custom work on the riders to give them the spears and swords instead of the lances.  I’m not sure if I’ll use the arms as they are and add embelishments with the greenstuff, or if I’ll try to us the lace arms and just cut off the lance to add the spear.  I also need to modify the Autarch’s bike to add the fusion gun, and then somehow change the Autarch to give him a helmet.

Plenty to do.




WIP: Falcon / Fire Prism

Once I finished my Jetbike, I started working on finishing up my Falcon/Fire Prism body.  I finished with the medium blue coat on the main body of the tank, and now I need to start on the detailing.


I also managed to find some nice plastic crystals at a craft store over the weekend, so I’ve started work on the custom Fire Prism cannon.  Here are the parts so far:


The emitter and cannon boday are made from Star Cannon parts from my War Walkers, along with some parts from the sensor array from the Falcon.  It won’t be quite as monstrous as the standard Fire Prism cannon, but it should look pretty good just the same.

WIP: Farseer Jetbike – Finished

I finished up my Farseer’s jetbike last night.  I painted up the banner with the Alaitoc icon and did a few touch ups all over.  I think it turned out really well.  My only issue with doing freehand stuff, is I tend to take too make coats to get things to look good, so the paint can sometimes end up looking a little chunky.

Here is the banner from both sides:


And here is the final product.


Now it just needs a rider.

WIP: Farseer Jetbike Update

I cleaned up the jetbike a bit and repainted the gems.  They turned out a lot better this time, in my opinion.  I still need to do some highlights on the black and silver.  I also used some greenstuff to attach the banner pole to the back of the bike.  It needs some cleanup once it sets, and then that will get painted.

Here’s the bike so far:


As for the Farseer, I made some significant mods to a Dire Avenger Exarch’s head and added some greenstuff gems that should work pretty well.


So far it is coming along pretty well.

Another Sorcerer Update

Connected the wings and shoulders.  I also added a little bling to the right arm.

The other major work was adding a loincloth in the front and back.  I don’t think it turned out too badly, though I did make a few tweaks after taking these pictures to make some of the curves more defined.  And I plan on tattering up the edges once the putty dries.
