Default Kroot Modeling Question

I have a few questions about the kroot models and their sprues. Please someone help me.
1. Are there actual bits for the kroot that represent the unique equipment they can get like the kroothawk totem when you make a kroot merc. army?
2. Is there an actual angkor-proc model and a master shaper model or do you just take the shaper model and greenstuff it?
3. How do you guys attach eviscerators to your shaper models?

1) The chest-plate with the bell on it, or the seperate two bells, could be used as a Sure-foot Charm, as can the other bells. The Meat parts can be used for the Blood of the Stalker. Though the Kroothawk Totem doesn't have a representing part. I would use a SM banner for this (If you don't use them on your SMs, like me).
2) There is an actual modle for Proc, but I'm not sure if it's still made now. Master Shapers need to be stuffed.
3) This is more tricky, and I sadly haven't found a way yet...

With Glue.

But seriously, a Kroot army is not an out of the box sorta list. I started a Kroot army because I wanted an interesting and engrossing modelling experience. Even if I could I would have never bought direct units. The fun of the army is that everything needs to be converted.

Prok can be found on Ebay but, from what I've heard, for quite a penny.

I find generally attacking your model with glue, and just putting it on any old place and hoping is easiest. Of course this isnt for all.

Try to cut the arms off the shaper, and steal the arms for the i.g priest

Or, this is what i did, put on a powerfist and make sure its has spiky bitz on it.

now im sounding like an ork

Which isn't so bad if you're playing as Ork-hybrid Kroot. :P Was thinking of making a shaper with a Chain Fist so he could use the other hand for modelling.

Angkor Prok can be bought on eBay for roughly 40 to 50 US$ and I found a website where you can download/print the special rules for him (GW locked it so can't download it).

A master shaper you could take a reguular kroot or Shaper and just use greenstuff or bits to convert him.

Well to add on the evicerator you need to be very careful to care out the hand/feature then be good at gluing. GS might be helpful too.

Another way to represent Blood of the Stalker is to add tattoos.

Do you still remember the website URL? I would love to take a look at Angkor Prok's rules as my friend is thinking about fielding a Merc force and wishes to field pretty much the greatest kroot who ever lived! (Someone else here on the forums said that but I don't know who...)
