I found these on ebay. No idea what kit they are from but look quite dynamic.
Also, will incorporate some pathfinder, dire avenger and guardian legs maybe.

Havent decided yet. The archer torso work really well with pathfinder legs but not sure if they would work with these.
Got a bunch of reaver and scourges heads kicking about... Dunno to be honest. I dont just want to copy your design and would like to come up with something original and my own.

Time will tell. Atm am hunting around for funky bits and once I have enough I can try out some stuff and see if I can come up with a theme.

Unfortunately, other than dire avengers, there are no aspect warriors with detachable legs... one of the eternal frustrations of eldar players.

I get it though...

Scorpions, banshees, dragons, spiders, reapers, hawks... (did i forget one?)... thats alot of kits to update.

Looks brilliant! I like the flash of green feathers on the glaive, stands out nicely against the hues of the rest of the model.

The whole thing works really cohesively together.

This is a fantastic project! I tried to make some Exodites back in the early 1990s, but they weren't up to much. You've got a great selection of kits to use now which can make wonderful results as your Farseer demonstrates.

Did you ever get to see the other Exodite pics from the Jes Goodwin sketchbook? I'd be happy to take pics if you still need them.

I decided to try and make a model based on some deep fluff that have no models... in fact the existing fluff is barely a sentence long. I started a guessing game over on my instagram to see if anyone could figure out what this fella might be, and to may be see if my mini tells the right tale. Thought i would do that here too. What do you think this guy might be folks??

That model looks great! ...whatever it is

My Eldar-fu is lacking, so I haven't a scooby what it could be. I don't even know what branch of Eldar!

He looks like some kind of soul-hunter, wraith guard thing. And Like he needs the heads of his enemies (for the skull throne) for some kind of world circuit-related exodite shenanigans. I have no idea what an orb of Zandywotsit is.

Dont worry... its deep fluff.... They are aspect warriors with one shrine on one craftworld, Zandros. The fluff is barely sentence about them and states what i just said plus that they are 'wiredly terrifying'. Thats it....

I've written some extra fluff that i will post with the paint job but basically i re-imagined them as and anti-psyker aspect path that dedicate themselves to becoming 'blanks'... the Eldar abhor blanks, i figured that would be 'weirdly terrifying' by Eldar standards....

Eldar, deep fluff, almost no info, plus the visual cues on the model, the orbs, the mask, the sliciness. Seemed to fit.

Lovely conversion on your farseer. The cold one converted up really nice, the dragon princes horse head was an inspired choice that you mated expertly with the rest of model. Looking forward to see where you go with the slicing orb chap!
