Hi everyone, I’m back sooner than expected and this time with an Eldar/ Aeldari Saim Hann Farseer which was painted for a painting competition, judged by Lecoqadoodledo. I decided to paint the farseer once again with the Saim Hann craftworld scheme as in recent years, they have really grown on me. I wanted to stay true to the Eavy Metal box art but with some subtle changes as you can see from the gems to the crystal blade.
The crystal blade took me two attempts as I shaded the blade darker then desired. Instead of starting from a dark base coat with successive lighter layers and glazes this crystal blade was painted with a light base coat then shaded to achieve the crystal blade affect.
I also wanted to give the Craftworld symbol a shot as well thus the one painted on the back of the farseer’s robes. This miniature is great to paint and I think it’s a big improvement from my previous Ulthwe rendition thus I’m happy with how it turned out. Hope you all like it. Let me know what you all think in the comments bellow! I have a few projects lined up so hopefully there will be some more posts soon. Until then take care everyone!
Thanks very much Ciaran =)
Awesome! What did you use for the base?

Cheers! are you referring to the colours used or the display plinth?
The display plinth.
It is from secret weapon
Hi, great model. What was your recipe for the purple outer robe?
Hi Thank you!
– base coat 2:1 screamer pink and Abaddon Black
– layer up to screamer pink
– edge highlight of pink horror
– final edge highlight of Emperor's Children
Hope that helps!
Thanks, purple always tricky for me. Interested that you didn't use glaze(s) as the colour looks really strong. Could that be due to a vanish?
I varnish with flat clear so it could be. I layered a lot on the robes. Glazes were used to smooth the transitions if need be.
