The standard Farseer/Warlock Skyrunner kit only includes different helmets to represent the two unit types; for my Farseer on a Skyrunner, I wanted to emphasise the differences between a Farseer and Warlock's robes and wargear.

date: 2015-present (work-in-progress)
components: 1x plastic Eldar Farseer Skyrunner, 1x plastic Farseer torso, 1x War Walker scenery element, Green Stuff

1. The design of the rune armour in the Skyrunner kit appears to be the standard Warlock rune armour, which isn't distinctive enough for a Farseer, in my opinion. For this conversion, the torso of the Farseer was instead taken from the standard plastic Farseer kit.

2. A cloak was sculpted from Green Stuff - the Farseers tend to wear long cloaks over their robes; another design difference that distinguishes them from the Warlocks, but was omitted in the Skyrunner kit.
