While I’m putting the last finishing touches to my Wave Serpent, I’ve assembled and converted this female Farseer. You’ve probably seen it already on our Facebook page, where I asked whether I should remove the shoulder guards or not. What do you think by the way? It was Garfy’s idea, to make the model more feminine. Please tell me in the comments.
According to the background, craftworld Iybraesil is a matriarchal society and thus I decided that I wanted the leader of my army to be female, too. I’ve had this conversion in my mind for quite a while, and I’m pleased that all worked out as planned. The upper body is made from a Dark Eldar wyches torso. The rune was carefully cut from the original torso and glued on. The head comes from the Dark Elf Black Dragon kit. I even changed the direction of the topknot to better match the flow of the cape.
Can’t wait to slap some paint on her (erm… does this sound dubious?). How do you like the conversion?

Lady looks like a dude to me…
I like it, perhaps you could post a picture without the shoulder guards too so it would be easier to judge?
the shoulder guards give her more presence model wise. also in a matriarchal society why would she need to look more feminine? Keeping it in style gives a stronger message.
I tryed something like that too, but only canged the Head, because i thought i'll warack the model if I try to sculpt a female chest. furthermore I use the Model as a spiritseer thats why i layed the helmet to her feet. I wish mine would look as female as your version. would keep the soulder guards anyway.
Really nice female Farseer! Now I want to see her painted!
Definitely better with the shoulder guards.
Looks more feminine without them. She's too stocky otherwise… Aren't eldar lithe and graceful?

I like the shoulder guards. I think if she had a longer neck, it would help convey her lady-like presence. Just a thought.
I'm looking forward to seeing her painted up!
Keep the shoulder pads, but I think that her neck is too short in relation to the new chest. If you extended the neck a bit, you would get back the "lithe" look that eldar are supposed to have.
I would agree with them the necks a little of but other than that a great conversion can't wait to see the finished model
I think it looks better without the shoulder pads. Keeps it looking lightweight and graceful, and after all, farseers are protected by magic and runes, not physical armour.

I like it. Keep the shoulder guards, I think. Women wear as much armour as dudes if it's necessary you know.
