Farsight: in and out of suit conversions

I don't like the Farsight model. Same pose as the commander like the 5ton suit can bounce around like a fucking rabbit. It needed to look heavy and bad ass. Sooooo what to do. Tear it apart! The legs into 6bits. Including the kneecap! Which was a pain in the ass. The plasma rifle arm into 3parts. Blah. But I'm happy with how it turned out. 

And finally Farsight outside his suit. 
I love this picture. He looks tired, and old and bad ass. So here is my WIP. It is a very early WIP. 

As you can see I've used parts of the psychic hood from a grey knights terminator and lengthened the legs with a little greenstuff. 
Again using grey knights bitz I've chopped off the back of the dread knight pilot head and sculpted a wizened tau face on the front. 
Quick pin together of the whole model. 

Thanks for reading! And keep checking in as I convert the entire Farsight eight!

Missile broadside dynamic posing!

I have been avoiding making one of these purely because of the pose. It looks like a blocky toy. When it should look like a fancy running bounding ...toy! 
So here is my attempt!
