Does anybody of you know a great alternative for wracks to field big blobs for the PoF strategem?

I believe the unit still has a maximum of 10 models so no big blobs required.

Well, Zombies and Ghouls are an option.

Back when I had some, I mashed a Kabalite Warrior unit with some Dryads which looked very nice.

I personally plan on using Ghouls until I find out whether I like them enough to find better alternatives.

Do people tend to not like the wrack models? I didn't think I would like them myself but I grabbed 10 of them to use for a patrol detachment with the new codex, and I'm actually quite pleased with how they look once I assembled them. If price is the issue, well that's why we have Ebay and Bartertown. Wink

Im using ghouls for mandrakes but they work for wracks just fine. Of course I have a bunch of talos and wracks already for the spare bits

I don't know about Bartertown, but I just looked on ebay and the cheapest Wracks are ~£20.00 for 5. Hardly a budget option. Neutral

When you use Ghouls as Mandrakes, do you modify them at all, or just use them as they are?

I ask because I have an abundance of unused Ghouls and a deficit of Mandrakes. Wink

I modified them to add a talos / cronos arm and a wrack mask (see photo from my previous post).

Since the baleblast is kind of a "hand" attack, I'm just going to paint the hand blackened or something when I get to it.

Ah, okay. Sorry, I'd assumed that those were Wrack conversions, not Mandrake ones.

Well, in fairness, their whole bodies are usually black. Wink

I really like those conversions! Those look like mini me versions of my grotesques conversions!
They would be awesome wracks for me!

Wracks are my fav looking model I just love them...but I wasn't keen on them from day one. The more artwork i have seen of them the more I like them.

I must admit that £22 for a box of 5 is simply too high for what is only basic troops. Why are the other troops £18 for 10? Had they all been £18 it would have been a little better.

Scourge are £15.50 for the same amount of models and loads of spare guns...I think Wracks should have been a similar price.

Watch out of ebay because it often the old finecast boxes on there and you don't want those.

Yeah the price is silly when all our other infantry is cheaper, including hellions/scourges which have skyboards/wings to add onto their models in addition to a whole bunch of options. Some models I'm willing to buy full price to support my local store, but wracks ain't one of them.

I do like the models though, looking forward to getting some paint on them.

I have used chaos cultists with spare coven bits to make wracks. I needed more in a pinch and i worked with what i had at hand and i actually like the rag tag look. I have some i made out of wyches as well with wrack masks and spare coven bits for female wracks.

I'm eyeing up those new Idoneth Deepkin Namarti (the blind troops) for a potential wrack alternative:
