    REDEATH's FARSIGHT and THE EIGHT plog

    Ok I was so impressed by the back story of Farsight and The Eight that I am starting a project to make my own custom conversion of Commander Farsight using the Newer Plastic Tau Commander Battlesuit with parts from the Finecast and Classic versions of Commander Farsight. I am also going to create The Eight since I have enough of the kits to make them.

    Here is some of my start up work and parts..

    REDEATH,

    I could have sworn that I responded to this thread, then I checked and I had on the Magnetized Minis PLOG. Well done, just watch out with metal parts like Commander Farsight's sword. I ended up having to add some brass pins to my Sentinel weapons as they would droop if the magnet was not perfectly balanced...and they will not be on a Crisis suit.

    Cheers,

    CB

    Yeah the metal sword does not scale a well with the larger plastic Commander battlesuit. So far it looks like I will only be using the Newer Fincast Farsight parts and none of the classic parts....I may just use the classic metal parts with one of the newer XV8 Crisis Battlesuits and sell it off to recoup costs.

    I am not really happy with the quality of the finecast model. GW's Quality Control is horrible the model looks like its a russian recast.. Only the shield and sword parts were cast ok but all the rest had a lot of problems and imperfections and I really had to put way more time cleaning up the imperfections than I would expect for a $50 model.

    In retrospect I should have called GW immediately to complain at least their customer service has always been good and they probably would have sent me a whole new model. I have not had much time or space (my workspace is a mess in the basement) I am waiting on a citadel project box I got on ebay to help make my current efforts more portable so I can work in the dining room w/o having to move a bunch of stuff.

    Damn I made the mistake of reading the fluff in the Farsight Enclaves Supplement and I am getting the itch to resume this...I am really torn between continuing my Death Guard or continuing with this project . Reading the Fluff really wants me to get into this again BUT I also need to get my hands on Commander Longstrike to do a Commander Farsight conversion I have been thinking about and also I want to get a few sets of the Farsight Enclaves Firewarrior shoulder pads damn GW for inspiring me so damn much that I cant get any one thing done also Damn Total War: WARHAMMER II that is sucking up a lot of night time playing time...now have High Elves Total War: WARHAMMER II - Mortal Empires game going.
