What should I use as Farsights sword?

Post#1 » Aug 23 2017 10:32

I'm going to convert a commander into farsight. Anyone know of a good one to use? Any third party companies do something?

I saw a converted commander that used a wraith sword that looked quite nice. Maybe hit up a local eldar player for some bits?

I converted a R'myr to Farsight, and used a Wraithlord sword as a template. You can see the thread here - viewtopic.php?f=21&t=16243

Unfortunately the photo links don't work because I finally took my website offline earlier this year :dead:

EDIT: hope this works Image

Ebay - that's were you go to find a Wraith Lord sword, only it'll need to be cut down to look right. Many folks who substitute it for the Dawn Blade, then is just looks Farsight robbed some Eldar for the sword. :P

If I ever want to use Farsight I intend to make my own using and old XV8. I bought a daemon prince at a Games Day about 16 years ago and have never built it. I was thinking of using it's sword.

I used the sword from the Elder Wraithlord model and found it surprisingly fitting.

I would use the Wraithlord sword as well. I mean it's speculated to be either Eldar or Necron origin in the first place anyway. (Some Necron blades look extremely similar just like the Wraithlord blade does and there are good arguments for both, the Eldar theory and the Necron theory)
