Well today i finaly took it upon myself to murder 4 different minis and make a Farseer on a Jetbike model. This is my first attempt to convert a model, and i have to say I've actualy enjoyed the challenge.
Appologies in advance for the crap camera phone photo's, and liberal use of blu tack to hold it together for the camera.
So here we are.
Thats 1 Eldar Jetbike with the back of the seat removed. 1 Farseer head. 1 Mounted High Elf mage torso and staff and the spear from a mounted High elf Hero boxed set.
And here what I've gotten to so far.
Thats it at the moment. Still alot of greenstuff work to do. The robe on the models right needs rebuilding. It currently stops near the back of the seat, and should flow down to the wing. The bit on the left also needs a patch up.
Looking from underneat theres a whopping hole where the back of the seat used to be, Im currently trying to think of something to put in there.
Also I need to try do some details on the cloak too. Maybe even the body on the jetbike. What about the jetbike wings? Any idea's guys?
All comments and tips welcome!
WELL DONE. Absolutely amazing job! The photos aren't that bad, so it's easy to see what a great conversion this is. Using High Elf parts was a good idea; it really works.
The Emperor set a fire in their hearts that they might burn the iniquitous and the impure from his sight. And the light of that flame shall be as a beacon to the faithful, a light that shines in the darkest places.
That's one awesome-looking Farseer. Great job!
As for details, Eldar can't have too many spirit stones and those are easy to do.
I must know what body that is! it's perfect!
Also, you may want to add rebuilding the foot pegs on the bike as a small detail. It'd be pretty easy to move them to where his feet actually are.
I think thats great even without extra details anything else will just be icing on the cake.
I think this is great!
For some reason he/she looks a bit static and the wings idea is a good one. maby wings like the little ones that arer sticking out the sides but bigger. You could probably do that with plasticard withought too much hassle.
Great Idea using high elves, probably saves hours of time and frustration trying to convert those metal farseers...
Nice work. I bought much the same kits to do the same job, but went in a differnet direction instead, however as I still have the bits I might do another one as well!
As for the wings, I used the Swooping hawks Exarch wings cut in half and replaced the side fins of the jet bike. My plan is to use normal swooping hawk wings and do the the same on the Warlock jetbikes that will be made to accompany the farseer.

I considered the SH wings, but i didnt think it looked eldary enough. Im now toying with the idea of using the 'Fins' off the back of the Wraithlord model.
whooow that's some really nice conversion very very well done.
Keep up the great work!
