    Advanced Eldar conversions

    Ok, I’m looking to start into Eldar and I won’t settle for anything less than a few sexy looking conversions. I decided to post here for comments and advice. To start off, what tools would you recommend for miniature metal work? I’ve heard a ‘pin-vice’ for pinning is a must. Which reminds me, also, if you have any guides that can help with advanced conversion they would be much appreciated.

    To begin, my Farseer:

    The guide for her seems useful and rather straight forward but advanced help would be appreciated.

    Next up, my Shadowseer:

    This was the main inspiration for my ‘banshees as harlequins’ upgrade. I would like the model to look as menacing as shown, and maybe even one up it—make that staff a scythe. Are those the winged Autarch’s wings on her? Looks like there was some repositioning work done on em. I’m guessing a conversion like that would need to wings to be pinned, however you do that…

    Goblin... those aren't his conversions. He's asking how to replicate those two.

    To start off, what tools would you recommend for miniature metal work?
    Jeweller's saw and a set of files.
    And a dremel (or equivalent rotary tool) with a set of cutter discs for it.

    Well another option would be to find some plastic sword arms/hands trim off the swords from the models and pin/greenstuff the models with the new sword arm. If you are having troulbe finding a sword you like check out the fantasy elf lines they have some great looking swords that make nice looking power swords.
