*points further down the forum*
I've already created two lists, one here, one in Necrons, using Farsight. The one here is running 4 Riptides... 3 from C:TE, and 1 from FS.
Crisis Troops are just like running Draigowing or Deathwing... They're very expensive scoring units, which means extremely low numbers. And honestly, The wargear options of the Signature systems are... weak. I see Farsight being used a lot as an ally, but very possibly only as a delivery system for 2 units of scoring Crisis and one Earth-Caste Riptide (which is how I've used them each time). I really think the Earth-Case Array alone will be the make or break for Farsight, kind of like how Iyanden allowed Wraiths to run using Spiritseers (and lots of them).
The army I designed was 2000 points, and looked something like this:
Commander w/ Drone Controller, 4 Marker Drones from FA
2 Fireblades (1 is the HQ from Farsight)
2 Squads of Firewarriors (as battle brothers, the Farsight Fireblade can man one)
2 Squads of Farsight Crisis w/ Plasma
4 Riptides with VT, EWO, Fusion (1 is from Farsight, and has the Earth Array)
3 Broadside solos w/ HYMP and 2 MDs.
When you look at it, honestly, it kind of still has the standard troop feel, but 'abusing' 6 elite slots... and allowing the crisis to score also. Are 4 riptides over the top? probably, but it's a HUGE threat.
