Fellow Kin,

As I am looking to expand and contort my Coven army into a Freakshow (thanks, Jimsolo!), I was trying to work up some ideas on how to make the Farseer fit into the army better.

If it helps, there are few conversion in my army, aside from the standard Crypt Horror Grotesques. I'd like to include the Farseer on a Jetbike - sorry, Skyrunner - in a unit of Windriders. To help tie them in, the Windriders and Skyrunner will be proxied by Reaver Jetbikes. I'm just clueless how to build up a Reaver into a Farseer or take a different approach and mold that onto a Jetbike.

Any and all suggestions are appreciated!

You could do the farseer as some kind of coven guy that uses crazy magic science weapons and harneses powers stolen from farseer using their spirit stones or something?

You could always use the dark elf dark rider/ warlock box and use a warlock torso/head for the seer. Or have a seer that is a puppet for a haemonculus that uses his powers against his own craftworld kin. So maybe chained up on some hovering torture device?...

How about jusrt use an Eldar Jetbike, spike it up a bit, and then chain a Farseer to the front canopy? Very Happy

You could have a haemonculus/wrack riding a jetbike with a severed head or head in a jar. Stitch the eyes and mouth shut. The head would be the farseer.

Or a small painengine of the size of a jetbike or grot with jets. Make it hold a tortured farseer.

A while back, I had the idea for a Sorcerer-haemonculus. The idea was a Haemonculus who used sorcery (or something resembling sorcery), rather than science, to create his monsters.

This is what I ended up with:

Spoiler:
 

As it turned out, I liked the model but not how he actually worked in-game (I also never took my 'sorcerous coven' idea any further). My plan is to instead use him as a Corsair Void Dreamer, along side my Prince (also converted from a Mandrake).

Anyway, I know he isn't on a jetbike, but I was wondering if you could do something similar in terms of cutting him off at the waist and then attaching him to a jetbike (perhaps with a green-stuff skirt to hide where his legs would be)> I was actually planning to try something like that myself with one of my spare Mandrakes.

The reason I'd put Mandrakes up for consideration is that their runes and manifestation of fire on their arms already gives the appearance of spellcasters. For obvious reasons, this is pretty unique among DE models (the closest comparison I can think of is the old Archon's Soul Trap).

Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

In my mind, this is slowly taking shape: a Doomfire Warlock head on a Reaver, with the mask if I can find it. I'd still like to put some work in the rider himself, not sure what just yet.

Spoke to a buddy of mine today, and he suggested I take a look at the compatibility of the kits. I'll be taking a spare Reaver canopy (of which you get extras in the kit anyways) and glueing it to the top of the Skyrunner. Doomfire Warlock head on the Farseer's body, might tack on some other bits 'n bobs on to spike him up (shoulder pads, different blade for the singing spear etc.)

If you're looking at that, perhaps you could look at the bottom half of the talos/cronos (as that's already assumed to be floating) and use wrack, haemy or grotesque parts to create the torso
