Default The European Union (Battlefield 2142 Themed Guard)

After 15 minutes of playing BF2142 again, I thought of the idea of using the EU as a Guard army. (For the record, I prefer the EU over the PAC because of the revolver pistol, that thing is sweet.)

Anyway, I was thinking of the Doctrines being:
Drop Troops (the individual trooper drop pods)
Special Weapons Squads (units of dedicated marksmen)
Iron Discipline (they actually have a purpose for fighting that's REALLY important)
Veterans (I'd imagine that they have the SAS and other special forces as well)
Close Order Drill (whenever I play, my squad is usually always close together to overlap fields of fire)

I was thinking of those doctrines, when a sudden realization hit me: ELYSIANS!

All of the doctrines, save COD, are doctrines the Elysians have. In addition, we get the Valkyrie (EU Air Trans) and the Vulture (the EU Gunship).

What do you gusy think of an Elysian army based off of the EU from BF2142?
I rarely play in official tournaments, so I could care less about using Forgeworld rules.

EDIT: And yes, for the record, my Death Korps army flopped. As much as I love the models. I abhor the army list.

EDIT 2: Jesus...Elysians are more expensive than Death Korps...granted only 3 pounds more, but damn...This idea too may fall...

With your 'flopping' DK list, couldn't you just use them as standard IG?

I think it sounds great unless you drop it :

Hmm, great idea!

Why not purchase a squad of Elysians? And see how it goes from there. It's ideas like yours which keeps you going, but if you are really determined, go for a small force for now.

Are they called "The european Union"? becuase I'm not sure Europe will be a full fledged union by then. It will probably have turned into a gigantic Power armor factory :P
