For my second Bonesinger, I decided to use the body from a third-party female Farseer sculpt. That model is no longer available as its design was based on the Farseer Macha's appearance in Dawn of War III. It's the only third-party Eldar model that I've seen that accurately captures the Eldar aesthetic (not really a surprise, as it was a quite blatant copy of an existing design). I didn't want to add Macha to my collection but the body pose looked interesting and well-sculpted enough to incorporate elsewhere.

date: 2018 (complete)
components: 1x limited edition Eldar Bonesinger, 1x Death Jester scenic base element, 1x Artel W "Warseer" miniature, 40mm round base
