Default Elysian Models for Vanilla Guard

Would it be advisable to use Elysian troops (without their packs) as vanilla Imperial Guard troops? This does not include specialty items, like the drop-sentinel, or the grav-chute. (unless a specific unit will use one to deep strike)

Thnx!

Nu ma nu ma iei.

they could work although i dont see why you cant just use a more common model (not so hard too get)

but yeah they could be and would look really cool too (the sentinal and chute would be cool too but as you said only too deep strike)

DOGGIE-BAGGING YES!!!

Yeah, the cadian models are cool, but not as cool as the Elysian ones. The Elysians give more of a space trooper Halo-style type feel. Tough, smart, but nowhere near invincible. They also are (IMHO) more gothic and futurific than say Mordians, Cadians, or The Steel Legion. Those lines are more along the line of neo-WWII, not 41st millenium.

The visor also adds to this gothic-ism, with unknown and unseeable, anonymous, insignificant specks, traveling the stars.

Nu ma nu ma iei.

It's completely fine. Just tell your opponent before you start "This is a vanilla Guard List, but I'm using Elysians".

You may get a response along the lines of "Money to burn eh? You buy the drinks afterwards then!" or something similar, but joking aside it's completely fine and I'd love to play against it

Good Luck
