Thank you all for the replies!

Bowens was a serious contender, but the less expensive kits/lights don't have fan controlled systems, and due to the heavy short workload, I don't want to risk it.

Our budget btw, sry should have mentioned this earlier, is around 1000 euros, so about 1200 dollars.
But I still don't really know if a 400w/s with 200w/s set would be enough for full body shots. I can't find a good source on the net with good info about the watt/how much space it can light-ratio.

Since you can't get buff stuff, I'd get the elinchrome kit because of there rotalux softboxes.  Then again the profoto mods are one of the best avaliable. I'd probably buy the profoto D1 kit with some softboxes.

D1 kit is unfortunately out of his $1200 budget, but he could easily get a pair of Profoto Compact 600R's with built in pocket wizards for that price.

I think our mind is set on the Elichrome's. It comes out great in several reviews.
Was wondering tho, how large of softbox is recommended for full body work? The larges softbox the Elichrome store has in the Netherlands is a 50x130 cms (1.6f x 4.26ft). I doubting this will be large enough. Does anyone have any good recommendations on other, larger softboxes?

If you can spring the money, I would die for a large Elinchrom Octabank, but here in Norway it will set you back around 1100 USD or Euros.

If you can get the soft box close that size should be all right. I use a 46" and 60" Octobox and it's fantastic. Like I mentioned earlier that the mods is what's most important and expensive... I'd love a deep octo from them btw.
