Default Elysian Las-Cutters??? Can't find them

I am putting together some Elysian's I purchased recently. All I can say is wow, very nice detail. But very heavy on the wallet.

I was looking at FW and found the Elysian "Lascutters" what or where can I find what exactly these are.

Thanks

I'm presuming these are either another name for a lasgun or it's a kind of las-knife.
Sounds interesting though.

here it is:



found on http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/elylascutters.htm

The rules are in Imperial armour: the anphelion project.

They are used to open the doors of the anphelion base. Basicaly terminators have the chainfist, tyranids rending and IG lascutter to open those sealed doors.

Not even close Elessar. The rules are completely differentr and rather overly complicated

I did some more searching, all I could find was that it hints at them being used in siege operations, busting doors or bunkers. I think they are being designed to go with the Cities of Death theme. So that is going to be two books I will need to buy soon. I already have the IA3 with the basic Elysian list, but the IA4 adds to it.

Let me start counting my pennies so I can get a Cities of Death and IA4.

I doubt anyone would complain if you used them as Meltaguns. It's what I'd do.

A single full-strength hit but with no range (basetobase) and can only be used on stationry objects with an armour value.

I suppose if you play them as they are... but as WG said, a close range high-powered armour busted might as well be a Meltagun, and you have to find people who are pretty well up on their fluff to even know what Lascutters are to contradict you.
