Default First Elysian Drop Troops!

Well, I just got Forgeworld Newsletter #110. This time around, they are showcasing their brand, spanking new, Elysian Models.. and god they are awesome!

With Grav-Chutes- http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/elys1chutes.htm

Without Grav-Chutes- http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/elys1.htm

They also had this to add on to the end:

"These are of course only the first Elysian units in what promises to be a
comprehensive range that Forge World will be releasing over the next few months.
We are working on at least one other normal squad, a Command Squad,
several Heavy Weapons Squads, Veteran Squad, Special Weapons Squads, (the long
barrelled bipod equipped versions of these new lasguns just look marvellous!)
and several different packs of accessories including LZ beacons and drop
canisters."



Just amazing, times like this that remind me why the IG are the greatest team of all!

Wow they are the coolest guard models ever.

I guess i'm going to have to get myself the elysian army ive been saying i'm going to get for years now.

Plus if they are going to remain forgeword exclusive (ie not released in regular gw shops) then there shouldn't be that many people with them, and rare, unusual armies always appeal to me.

The rules are offical Aftercrescent and can be fielded in the Guard codex using their doctrines. I suppose they could be an option for you, you'll have to check out how much they are a squad, but they should still be cheaper then metal Guard models.
