PostSubject: Wracks body building   Wed Aug 19 2015, 12:15

Hola amigos,
i wanna suggest you an experiment of the latest days.
When i will have the opportunity i'll take some photos of my results and share, although i am not a very good painter as you, but it is the modelling part that is important.

I've found a fast solution to two major issue of wracks:
1) they're too much crazy priced
2) they're waaaay tooo skinny to be drug-pumped crazy beasts (especially legs and low chest).

The solution is this: kitbash 'em with that small kit of chaos cultist (sold at 8€ in store). My local store manager suggested it to me and wow! with a small amount of cut&sew you'll have 10 wracks (instead of 5) and they will look way more body pumped. In particular you've to cut and sew legs with torsos to mix them well and scrap away faces to adapt and put on the wracks masks.

I'll take soon some photos with my s##tty nokia cellphone and post here...

Amigo? Aren't you Italian?

Anyway: that's a nice idea. Let us have a look afterwards.

The thing is, Wracks aren't any stronger than normal Dark Eldar, and apparently lack the energy to even fleet (clearly their drugs don't include steroids of any kind...). So, I'm not really surprised that they don't look very pumped. It would probably be weirder if they did - as you'd have these huge, hulking monsters hitting with the strength of guardsman. Neutral

Nevertheless, I'd be interested to see your conversions.

This is my attempt to both take a shot of the wracks (do not complain about the quality, ehi, it's nokia) and post it on there:







As you can see the wracks took with this kitbash a major improvement in the "come at me bro" general feeling, also they became a little ...uhm... toughter maybe? The aforementioned kit is this:
http://www.games-workshop.com/it-IT/Cultisti-del-Caos
sold at around 8 euros, mostly because it has only few pieces. The above wracks was obtained cut and sewing wracks torsos on cultist legs and vice-versa.







However, i forgive for the bad quality of both painting and photograph. In total this wracks costed me around 38 euro, in a GW shop near my house. The funny part is that was the owner of the shop that suggested me the kitbashing in order to do not spend 60 euros on them. Maybe could be useful for those that want to put on a scalpel squadron quickly.

Ah, do not appoint on the equipmente (ie: there is a wrack with both ossectactor and scissorhands maybe) but my meta is very proxy oriented and dont exactly care as wysiwyg, or, however it is being usually accorded before the game.
