Is it just me that cannot find them or are there only the Finecast for new Haemonculi, Wracks and Grotesques? This kinda annoys me because I liked the plastic minis and the ability to swap around heads arms and the like. Seems the Haemi is stuck with whatever the cube is, a Liquifier gun and a Flesh gauntlet. Never having bought the wracks please tell me the Hexrifle is not the only option for the Acothyst.

Any chance that GW will be releasing any plastics that you guys and gals know of?

Haems and Wracks et al were never available in plastic - they used to be available in metal, and now are available in resin (oh, sorry - I mean available in 'Finecast special magical mixture').

I have seen people build some Haems out of Warrior/Wych and Talos parts, and have also seen plastic Wracks built off Empire Flagellants from the Warhammer Fantasy line. But there's no official plastic kits for either of them, and I strongly suspect there won't be for years yet to come.

I loooove me some flatulant wracks!

Wait a minute, that's not right...

In any case, GW doesn't make plastic kits for model that not everyone will use, and occasionally new toys. I'm surprised the talos/chronos wasn't resin actually.

By that logic we would have plastic Archon like WFB blisters, Incubi, Wracks and Beasts.

Anyway GW make model basing on their prediction, manufacture costs and quality. Heroes are metal/FC because they are more "collector" models.

Not everyone uses Incubi, Wracks and Beasts, Orky. Virtually everyone uses Wyches or Warriors, as to Archons.... well, I got no answer other than only the Spess Mehreens get plastic characters in 40k, (in Fantasy, people would actually buy more than one, say, wizard, for their army.

Sphess Mehreens also sell way better and more reliably than other armies - you can't really compare.

Sigh, guess I have to get me some Flagellants and such for my Wracks. Thinking of using Ogre Bulls and/or Ironguts for my Grots. But those are things to scour the modelling section for. Thanks

If you'll pardon the shameless self-promotion, here's an example of what you could do with Flagelants for wracks.

TAADAA!

Those look awesome! What did you use for their arms and for the grotesque bodies?

The wrack arms are dryad arms for the massive claws, or ghoul arms. The hunched over Grots are Chaos Spawn, the more upright one (the abberation) is an oldschool rat ogre. then it was just Talos bitz EVERYWHERE!

I need to get my hands on 3 Talos so I'm guessing I will have more than enough parts. If all else fails I will sculpt my own. Not usually my art discipline but I suppose I can ask around at my university. It's an Art university so there has to be someone who can teach me Razz

Finecast is really easy to work with and convert models, a few snips and you have a really quick head swap, etc.

Like mentioned before, Flagellants make great Wracks, even better when kit bashed with Ghouls IMHO; try and get the Talos bits from a bits retailer on the net.

My super wish list uber prediction for plastic Wracks: the 7th edition starter set..... You heard it here first Wink

I love finecast models personally, they're so easy to convert and assemble, but some mor Ellison would be nice on these kits

You can also do this Razz

To be honest I'm pretty sure that if You can made carpace from bits (like additional Reaver front) or scratch, You can have 2 big guys from box.
