Default Commander Farsight

Is Farsight still worth have/using or should I just convert him to a much needed cool looking shas'el (I have a shas'o) or maybe even just a regular battle suit?

EDIT: Farsight, not farside...

Greetings...

The moment you finish converting the model of Farsight is the moment you wish you had him available for the Farsight army you want to make. This has happened to me.

I say build him. I didn`t, and now I have the metal parts lying around in my bitz box without a proper Crisis body for them, staring at me accusingly and haunting my sleep...

Oh Farsight, why have I forsaken you?!?!?!

Go on. Build him. Now.

Cheers,

Look at it this way. It's better to have him and just count him as a regular commander if you don't feel like using him than it is to not have him and decide you want to...

Personally I just took a xv-89 from forgeworld and converted that into farsight (looks so much better than the original model, especially the way they posed him...) But then again I'm also just using him as a counts as, since I really don't like that red color scheme.

I've had my farsight model sitting on my shelf for years, built painted and ready for battle but I've never used him. I don't think I've been given a good enough reason to use him, and I don't think there is enough tactica on this sight for a farsight army.

Maybe I'll have to start using him and then make my own!

Go ahead make him. If you decide go ahead play a farsight. If not 'effin proxy him in and go for a game with your mates. He can represent something "higher" like said a commander,but not really play as FS. I do it,and It makes my commander some what seemingly(sp?) easier to remember.

Hope it helps some!
Happy Hunting!

I play with a Farsight army, its great. I may not win every single game. but its the restrictions for the army that make it challenging. Farsight has been very beneficial in my games & if you are patient, he will make your games fun. (remember, this game is not about winning, its about having fun).

I'm starting to build at Farsight army, but the lack of broadsides etc and the way that they have to rejoin the Empire when playing <1500pt games is weird and tedious. The power sword and extra Crisis suits is nice, but the only real thing they have against vehicles is the Fusion Blaster, and (unless I'm mistaken) that has to be used from 6" away for maximum effect (12" total range). I'm tempted to switch to a regular Empire force, either letting Farsight collect dust on my desk or convert him into a commander, recycling his shield for a nice Gun Drone-to-Sheild Drone conversion.
