I have now completely finished farsight ... I dry brushed the base and washed the scroll but went futher and tidied up the white as it wasn't very smooth or clean (which is very important when painting white I have found out)
I also felt I went over board with the object source lighting and battle damage chips. I tuned both of these things down a few notches for a more subtle effect in both cases. It doesnt show much in the pictures but it is a big improvement on the 90 percent finished model I feel. Here are some more pictures.

I decided against the dead ork and shortened the sword to fit more with the original GW model here is the finnished converted o'shovah

On the tau side I had a commander shas'o with missile and fusion blaster, a fireknife crisis suit, 8 pathfinders (with devilfish) two 9 man teams of fire warriors a pirahna and two 3 man teams of stealth suits one with marker drone.
After Tyranids turn one everything had moved and ran. The terma gaunts ran particularly well moving to hold an objective on their left flank right away.
Tau turn two and i dumped the firewarriors out the back of the fish to rapid fire the warriors sneaking round the side of the ruin and did very little damage I marker lighted the genestealers again and did alot of shooting at them
Tyranid turn 3 and the warriors killed aload of fire warriors with death spitter shooting then slaughtered the rest in close combat. The sergant and two tried to run but were poked through the head and abdomens by scything talons ... probably.
Tau turn 3 and the surviving fire warrior team jumped in the devilfish and moved to hold the objective in the middle again for the greater good.
With nothing to marker light the pathfinders readied themselves for some real action and moved towards the terma gaunts firing their carbines at them killing one gaunt.
The warriors moved to contest the objective (wood elf is objective lol)
Tau turn 4 and the pathfinders moved up shooting and killing another gaunt causing them to be pinned then they assualted the gaunts (I needed to contest the objective at all costs) They lost two guys and killed two gaunts in return drawing combat.

fighting for the imperium there was a melta vet squad in chimera a plasma command squad on foot some ratlings infiltrating as well as a flamer squad plus gunnery sergant harker (heavy bolter assualt weapon anyone ?) and some scout sentinels and some armoured sentinels and of course guardsman marbo.
My stealth suits outflanked perfectly but forgot how to shoot and only damaged one scout sentinel slightly ..eek so they assualted away with their jet packs but got caught up to and charged eventually losing combat and fleeing off the board.
My surviving guys moved into cover marbo came in deciding to wait to attack till his following turn but my commander insta killed him with fusion blaster and missile wounds.
In other news around this time my second fire warrior squad out of three kept getting whittled down but making leadership every time I think the shas'ui got shot nine times at least. My pathfinders broke cover losing a few guys to plasma fire and the ratlings crack shooting but stood fast gunning down some of the command squad making them flee off the board !
My commander joined the fire warrior squad in the building for protection as the melta vets closed in on him in their transport just itching to insta kill the ish outta him but he didn't die thanks to the meat shields and in return He wrecked two armoured sentinels But was assualted by the last one. This is where i gave up the game and forfeited as i only had 3 pathfinders and my crisis suit commander who at strength five could not do any damage to the front armour of a armoured sentinel ( you always use a walkers front armour value in cc)
Alll in all i deployed badly played badly got beat down and worked by a guard army but i did kill a few units so i felt pretty good about the game plus... it was fun ! :D
