Default Cheaper ideas for DE Wracks?

Well, I'm thinking of putting a Haemonculus-led DE force together, and that means I'll need wracks, and more the merrier- FNP only goes so far on a 5-man squad. And GW, in their infinite wisdom, has decided to release Wracks as a 5-man Finecast box for 45$ Canadian. 9 bucks per troop body seems a bit steep, and with Wayland and Maelstrom out of the Canuck market for now, does anyone have any ideas for cheaper Wracks that WON'T make me sell what few functioning organs I have left for cash?

Well well well, starting another army are we? It'd be hard to find a substitute for that kind of a model, so I'd highly suggest buying them from Heavy Support. They offer a 20% discount, and free shipping for orders over $150.


If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

A link would have been useful- almost hurt myself Googling it ;)
Heavy Support

I'm still looking for other ideas, and may have had a cunning idea of my own... Bwahahahaha...

I've seen a few Wrack conversions based on Warhammer ghouls over on warsneer.
There are plenty of plastic models in the fantasy range that you could combine with some DE bits.

The Warhammer ghouls seem a bit TOO bent over- Is it possible to straighten them?

PP's cryx mind drudges and overlord? Mind you, at $32, they may not be a much cheaper alternative to the GW ones, but the models aren't too bad, and the overlord make a pretty solid stand in for an haemonculus as well (without an urge to hug you).

yeah HS is great, they are not as cheap for us as Wayland was, but its still a huge difference in price. I live about a 45 min walk from the actual HS store XD

the key to every good DE army makeup. Always have a backup plan, try to take everything in multiples, and use everything you can to your advantage, being a sneaky bastard within the rules, as it were.
