The release of the Dark Eldar Wracks today was not only an exciting new release, it also gives the opportunity to compare these almost identical sculpts to the Finecast Wracks releases some years ago!
The Wracks are the soldiers of the Haemonculi - body modification freaks who build their own force from the body parts of slaves and those willing to be part of this macabre force.
We looked at the Wracks a bit last week, but here's the unboxing of one of the strangest units in WH40K.
~ WARNING -
I am not a photographer, so expect dodgy pictures below.
You can see here the "bonus bits" for the vehicle crews.
That may be the best sculpted hand in GW history!
Also - why the bare feet/ sandals?? It's just weird...
Also notice just some of the alternate heads/ face plates.
Head to Head - The Finecast Comparison
The Finecast is also more in proportion, less stocky slightly and a bit more dynamic.
Jes Goodwin's knowledge of anatomy comes to the fore here as you can see the difference between the muscles on the Finecast he did and the new plastic one that imitates it so heavily.
The topknot is interestingly separate on the plastic versions which is nice and much more detailed.
That being said, the detail is very good on it.
The new plastic ones are very nice, have great weapons options and I'm sure will fill many people's armies - but if you're looking for a feature piece or something with a bit more character, hunt out the Finecast version.
