Hi there,

A very Merry Christmas to all !

I am in the process of building a Dark Eldar army using toys from our friends at Vanguard but need
something to represent Wracks and Grotesques.

Now for the Wracks, I am probably going to use the old Beastman plastic model.

But I have been scratching my head to find a suitablly large and ugly Grotesque. I recently
came across this, however, and wondered whether it will be suitable. The figure is perfect
but I wonder whether it will be ridiculously large ? These are the 10mm fantasy Ogres
sold by Eureka :

I don't suppose anyone has seen these in the flesh ?



Phil

Maybe convert some ogryn figures? Add spikes / blades taken from 40k DE plus cut cylinder pieces of plastic rod with a visible pin going into the model, so that it looks effectively like a large syringe sticking out of it. Fiddly but possible.

I haven't seen them in person, but based on scale I'm guessing those ogre models are probably somewhere between the size of dreadnoughts and rhinos.
