Farsight Enclaves: Ghostkeel battlesuit

When the Ghostkeel was first released by Games Workshop, I knew that this was a model that I wanted to add to my collection. I had already been toying with the idea of including larger battlesuits in my Enclaves list, and the Ghostkeel gave me the perfect reason to get a nice new kit...

I know that I often say this of GW kits, but the Ghostkeel was a pleasure to build and paint. Nice, clean instructions, lots of poseability and several decent options.

I decided that I wanted to paint the piece like a big stealth suit and thus went with a more muted red than the usual Farsight scheme. This fits in really nicely with the two stealth suit teams that I've painted up.

I picked out a few armour plates in grey to tie the model in with the rest of the army.

Check out the detailing on the back of the mode: some really nice touches from the sculptors here.

I added some resin pieces from the old bits box to the base: just some parts from the now OOP GW stratagem set. I've never played Planetstrike or Cities of Death, but I've used plenty of these resin parts on various models! I think that the added colour breaks up the monotony of the red quite well.

What's next for the Farsight army? I'm going to try to finish up a Coldstar Commander...
