Farsight Enclaves ... road to a playable list !

Post#1 » Jul 04 2017 09:20

Hi, this is my first post on ATT. I like to play, but most of all I like finished models :)! Hopefully this project log will help me achieve a playable list in the near future ... well, I give myself one year!

As of now I've painted two models, commander Farsight (simple conversion) and a Ghostkeel. By the way, I'm a really slow painter :sad: !

Those are lovely, and welcome to the forums!

I'd love to get a parts list for that Farsight; I've been wanting to re-do mine for some time. That Ghostkeel is sinister as well, and certainly looks to strike fear into the enemies of the Enclaves.

I can't wait to see what the rest of your suits and vehicles look like. It should be a very striking force on the tabletop.

Top notch! Well done sir! I really like the subtle grey camo too.

Fantastic paint jobs, my only criticism is on the ghostkeel and is less about the paint than the choice: Why would a battlesuit with active camoflage need passive camoflage also?

I can imagine all sorts of reasons why the suit would need passive camouflage! For example, if the suit was in a low-power-use state but still needed to blend in, or if it took damage in battle and lost a portion of its active camouflage, or even if the suit is powered-down in a campsite but needs to remain out-of-sight.

Thanks for the kind words guys, it is very appreciated !

@Sa'cea Mont'yr : It is a very simple conversion ... but pricy ! I used the sword (with the fist) and the shield generator from the Farsight kit. Simple as that !

@deathboon : Yeah, just like Arka0415 said ;) ! Well, the goal is to paint all the stealth elements in a different scheme, to differentiate them from the rest of the army. I first thought about painting them all black, but finally settled for an urban camo scheme.

Have you considered invisible paint? :P

Cracking paint job. I love appreciating someone's models in a game when they've taken the time to do a great paint job

Dear vom, I am a fan of weathering and chipping and your is really good!! I like so much also the camouflage on Ghostkeel and drones, really homogeneous!! But I have a doubt: why didn't you use the Real Farsight sensor head? I've seen the Farsight sword and the shield, so I imagine that you have the entire model.

Dear Zeruel,just speaking for myself, but I think I know the to this one. Because the sensor head, as Bob the Dwarf would say: "Looks like a one armed bandit!" :)

What I've taken from this is that metallics can look at home on Tau stuff (even if just as wear).

Out of interest, is that red painted over a metallic base, or is the metallic wear just sponged/painted over the top as normal?
