Default Using DKoK heavy Weapons with Elysians: Yes or Just Don"t

My Problem, I want to use DKoK Heavy Weapon Team.

I have a decent Elysian Force up and running. 65% painted. I just purchased some DKoK HW Teams.

Awesome models btw

I have the Auto Cannon Team and the Heavy Bolter Team.

My army idea would be the Death Korps heavy weapons teams are being reinforced by Elysians.

I looked over the rules and nothing states that I can't so, I am not too sure on the rules but when I drop the HQ, do the support units need to drop as well or can they start on the board?

My thought is, "just don't."

I mean, you're running Elysians. They're a very characterful army, not a lot of people anywhere will have a fully painted Elysian army, so you're getting bonus points for origniality too. Don't go messing up a strong theme by tossing in a couple of models that don't fit.

I'll agree with the others, you would be better off going pure Elysians. That said the Death Korps models are amazing, so if you were to field them along side the Elysians untill you finished the Elysians, I can't imagine anyone would mind.

Thanks for the imput guys!

I was not too sure if mixing units was going to look good OR just like a lot of mixed up units with no uniform look.

As for my Elysians, they are about 65% painted, but I am about to finish them up, and hopefully also finish up some extra units so I can change weapons out and get a Vet Unit in there.

I play against a lot of marine players and my HQ units have alot of Plasma. (Plasmagun and two plasma pistols) Which really tears up the marines, I just need to model up a few more Meltagun guys to either place in regular units or use them as my Hardened Vet Squad, beacause I am short on Anti-Tank.

(I will be placing my current list up here soon)
