Hey guys, I’ve finished my converted female Eldar Farseer, painted in the livery of craftworld Iybraesil. Check out more details of the spear blade and the back of the cloak, as well as a list of bits I used, after the jump!
The rune on the back of the cloak is based on one of the transfers of the new eldar decal sheet. I just cut away the lower part, and once the decal was set, I extended the rune with white paint. I really like the look and thanks to Microsol it’s hard to distinguish from a freehand 😉
The model is still rather glossy, I guess it needs a second coat of varnish. My new camera is so good that it exposes every flaw 😉 In case you wonder how I did the blade, I used Khorne Red as a basecoat, then I applied very thinned Wazdakka Red, allowing the paint to dry in a blotchy pattern. Then I used the so created pattern as a base for the lightning streaks, which I painted with Emperor’s Children, VGC Squid Pink and P3 Carnal Flesh.
Here can you see how the unpainted conversion looked like. The chest is based on a Dark Eldar Wych torso, the rune comes from the chest of the original Farseer model. The head is from the Dark Elves Black Dragon kit. I repositioned the pony tail to better match the flow of the cape.
There was a lot of discussion whether I should remove the shoulder guards or not, in the end I left them, as I thought it made the model look more warrior like. Also I was afraid to mess up the model 😉
How do you like the conversion and my paint job? Have you tried building female Eldar character models as well?

The model looks great – especially the blade which contrasts well with the rest of the model.
I love it, i think you've outdone yourself.
I have to point out something though. The deep shading around the mouth/nose makes her look like she has a moustache. if you could change that brown to a lighter skin shade I think it would be perfect.
Lol you're right 😀
Agree with Garfy, the shading around the mouth are a bit too pronounced.
Other than that all I can say is; Well done!
The angle of the head with the torso makes the top seems a little bloated (but i'm nitpicking here. apologies).
Overall, i like the paint scheme and the conversion work. Nice!
Great job! Couldn't help but to think of this though! 😉
Nice work, will totally be ripping off the concept:)
Done a couple of my own Eldar ladies using older models:
I am doing a all female eldar army based on a lore that they hunt demons looking for Isha. I just found your blog looking for color schemes…. I am still somewhat new to the conversions. However I was hoping you might be able to give me some guidance on how you used the wych elf bosom on the farseer model as I have been trying to figure out a female farseer that doesnt require making a new model entirely.
Check out the WIP picture above… I removed the original chest of the farseer (between the robes, then carved down the female Wych chest and put it in the gap I created between the robes. I carefully cut out the glyph from the original chest, and glued it on top the Wych chest. Last but not least, I filled all the gaps with green stuff.
thanks I appreciate the added instruction. also you have a very well painted army. I have enjoyed seeing your work.
