Default Elysian : Rules and Doctrines

Hey!

What do you think are the doctrines of the Elysian Drop Troops? I'm trying to find the rules that were published in the WD ATM to help me out on this(the North American one)... since the realease of those lovely models from Forge World, I'm thinking of collecting a EDT army... it'll take time since they cost soooooooooooo much! Or I'll buy one kit to guide me and try resculpting Cadian models to make them look like Elysian... For now, IMO the doctrines are:
  • Drop Troops (duh!)
  • Heavy Weapon Team
  • Special Weapon Team
  • Hardened Veterans
  • ? ? ? Grenadiers ? ? ?

Now I'm stucked here! What dya think?

I was thinking of switching the Grenadiers for Strom Stroopers since Grenadier can't use grav-chutes...
  • Drop Troops
  • Veterans
  • Heavy Weapon Platoons
  • Special Weapon Teams
  • Storm Troopers

How does that sound?

Trust me, Elysians were the first all-Carapace regiment, they do use Carapace!

Now that's interesting!! So I would say :
  • Drop Troops
  • Carapace Armour
  • Heavy Weapon Platoons
  • Special Weapon Teams
  • Storm Troopers

That sounds good to me... I wounder if GW will something for them... with the Taros Campain we hear of here and there... *crosses his fingers*

Funny! I actually realised that today while I was looking at the Armies at the end of the Codex... could have GW changed the Elysian name for Harakoni??

Cheers!

I think it's mere coincidence, because the Elysians were active in the Armageddon Campaign, but the Harakoni I don't remember much fluff on...So perhaps Harakoni is an Elysian stand-in.

I don't know why Elysians aren't in the codex, yet Harakoni are...
