Okay, so I heard of Eldar players trying to convert the Necron C'tan Deceiver into a hovering Farseer/Warlock, but they always look like they just stepped out of the shower (towel and all...). I decided to give it a try and i think I was pretty successful. This guy is Aslander, and he is basically your typically farseer, except that he believes in studing the enemy (Chaos) and using that knowledge against them (kind of like the Radical inquisitors). Of course, the effects of Chaos are indifferent to all, and Aslander's armour has fused to his body, and his Ghosthelm has extra power vanes to hold back the chaotic forces that he so diligently studies. Even his Singing Spear has a daemon trapped in it (one that devours other daemons). I use him strictly as a regular Farseer, though. It gets too awkward specializing him, asking your opponent for permission to use the special stuff, etc. The model is more of an aesthetic representation of the character in my Craftworld's fluff.
I attached pics. Hope they come through...
ok... um.. sorry to say this but the try was good but a... that looks bad! I mean realy dude, it might be the paint job (its ok) or it might be the horrible modle! either way its a 4/10
It just dont look.. like.. eldar.
i like it. i think its different, which is good plus has some cool fluff to back it up. i dont think its bad at all.
The body does not look too much like an Eldar. make a rune on the chest or something. Add some GS to make it look like some of the shapes of the armour still remain.
Also, get rid of the paint scheme you used, it hurts eyes and is certainly not fitting for Eldar.
The paint scheme is a bit bright and it doesn't look a lot like eldar, it looks like you've done good conversion work though. Maybe if you painted it like a normal farseer it would be fine, I think it is just the colour.
So I guess I don't quite understand the "Bright colors" comments. Eldar are all about the colors (except for Ulthwe, of course). The Saim-Hann is bright red, Alaitoc is blue and yellow, Beil-tan uses green and white... My point is that bright colors are what the Eldar use. My army's color scheme is dark purple with dark green, and the blue is actually the under-suit. I will concurr that the ghosthelm might be a bit...umm...loud, though.
Horrible colours. The conversions better than most Eldar conversions from C'tan but you should put runes on the armour.

Lovely model, though runes would make it more eldar like. The paint scheme is horendous. Eldar are about bright STYLISH colours, not vomit. All craftworlds [except maybe Saim Han] have a cool looking scheme. Use one colour for the armour and one colour wor the jewels, and dont make the armour orange. Black looks good, white looks good, blue looks good, turquoise is rarely used but looks the best, green doesnt, purple is acceptable but orange just isn't. It's as bad as painting eldar rusty metal and brown.
Alright, alright, I have to point out (as I did before), that the helm isn't orange (please! I do have SOME good taste ). I painted the ghosthelm a copper color, and it looks like the lighting has taken the copper and turned it into a burnt orange. DEFINITELY not the color intended. What if I painted it gold instead? Or maybe a dark steel color? I could also do an ink wash of black or dark green over the green ribbons... Keep in mind that this farseer has been dabbling in Chaos, hence the darker colors (He isn't as "pure" as the other farseers.) The runes are supposed to be represented on the green ribbons (in the fluff, Aslander's green actually looks like a robe when it's not lifting him off the ground...) Good point on the rune armour, though. I'll have to consider adding some. And I do like the idea of having some armour bits made out of green stuff and have them "melting" into the body... THat's a really good idea...
But please advise what you think of my options above for the Ghosthelm...
