I'm jumping on the "Izzy Sanchez Farsight convertion" wagon.

A super fun model to paint and really easy.

The red is white zenital with white highlights and naphtol crimson ink from liquitex!

How easy was is to pull off the conversion? I plan on jumping on the Izzy train, and am curious about the work ahead of me!

Really easy tbh, just some little plastic lins to remove. Imho the hardest part is change the pivot point of the right wrist to point better the arm!

I’m glad to hear this, I love the pose change. Izzy said it wasn’t easy but I think he changed the feet, I’m all up for giving it a go if it’s doable for a mortal like me.

Hey, could you please explain how you painted the red in a bit more detail? I love how it turned out! And sadly your instagram link does not seem to work :0

Keep up the great work!

Is red liquitex ink on a grey scale! (black primer and white ink from above) Here I recorded the red application https://www.instagram.com/reel/CrtIS58PpFs/?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==

Looks great! How did you stabilize the tiptoe pose?

EDIT: Also, what's your recipe for that rock? It looks gorgeous!

[–]HandsomeFred94[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The base is simple, white base on all, seppia ink on the sand and brown (brown umber earth ink) on the rock, then just two dry brush, first a mid brown like mournfang and then a lighter drybursh with karak stone!

Where is he mounted to the base? Just at the foot? Do you mind sharing how you managed to get that pose without stress points on the feet?

[–]MegaMagnetar 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The pose looks so regal and contemplative.

More "old farsight does't give a fuck"

Nice pose! Will need to check out how Izzy did it. What a great artist they are.

I loveee this paintjob, the NMM on the sword is such a nice touch too

I was updated by Reddit to look at this post. Look at it, was like "That Farsight slaps." Got to the last image and was like, "Those mid-stealth Stealth Suits are incredible and look fantastic!"

TL;DR: You did a damn good job!

How did you do the white tau markings?

[–]HandsomeFred94[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Freehanded :D

[–]HornetAlarmed2344 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is really clean! They look like stencils.
