I took inspiration from lucky no5/the eye of error. A great dark eldar craftsmen. The idea was to keep the grotesque looking similar to the wracks but a bigger more intimidating version for army cohesion. So the base model was from privateer press the warspear's of blight. They came in kits of 5 which in all fairness made more sense financially, as the gw model was single pose and 15.50 a piece. I wasn't keen on 10 units looking the same so used 2 kits and used green stuff and left overs from a few talos kits for weapons and kits from several other kits such as Venoms etc.

I thought the end look was amazing I hope you agree

Group shot waiting for the brush in Feb. Not going to lie I'm pretty eager :D

Now It's just a case of waiting for the challenge to start proper. Might make myself some pain tokens while i wait :D

Love the Grots!
I remember seeing this idea on Eye of Errors blog. Can't wait to see them painted.

I keep thinking, "wow, those are pretty huge to be grots!" LOL

FWIW, I like the chain modeled up feather than down. You may need to magnetize the arm

Yeah I lifted the idea from him. I tried not to copy to much and this was my first green stuff project. So hope it looks good. I've not tried to get amazing solo photos as you can't see much with the black primer. I'll put up better ones as the painting gets under way.

The Grots are a pretty big unit on the table to be fair but in comparison to the gw grot it's very close size wise. They match up rather well to a wrack imo.

As for the chain i abandoned that idea. I wasn't sure it was worth the effort for a sub par looking weapons, feel it would have taken to much chopping and sticking to get the look I wanted.

Really well done on the grotesques, especially loving the one with the 4 trophy racks coming out of its back! Looking forward to seeing this project go through.

I am pretty sure loopy is being funny like normal and when he says "grots" he means ork gretchin which are the traditional owners of that nickname.

I think your Grotesques are perfect! Really top notch work, I am inspired to work on mine, so much so that I think I will prime my talos this afternoon. I don't think I can hold off on getting started either!

Love the grotesques! I was thinking of converting some from rat ogres, but I think yours are even better. Can't wait to see them painted up.
