Default Elysian?

I wanted a Drop Troop army, and was thinking on purchasing these for that army. But I noticed they had no troop selections. So where can I find the troop versions, and should I take these cool looking dudes instead f the standard ones?

right you guys, this is off topic now, right SMRCommander, Yau want to do drop Troops

Right:
1. Do NOT do Harakoni Warhawks, make your own docrtinated force of Elysians
2. Remeber that you can come peacemeal and get blown to bits from the lack of heavy equip.
3. Go for Pure Dtop troops, no leman russes happening to just "be there"

Good Doctrines for Elysians to take
Drop Troops (duh?)
Heavy Weapon Platoons (this is to give some kinda firepower after landing to defend from tanks and suchlike)
Special Weapons Squads (to give closer supprot to your valuable men)
Veterans (This removes the 0-1 on the veterans and then allows you to use their higher BS to snipe out units)
Die- Hards (This is fitting considering the slang- a one way ticket- assignment to a drop troop landing is in the codex, also useful in battle because your units will be outnumbered at first.


Right, The models:
Forge World-
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/edthq.htm- the HQ squad without grav shutes, 20 or $38 the HQ with the grav shutes, 24
or $45.60
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/elys1chutes.htm- the troops squad of 10 with grav shutes, 40 or $76
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/elys1.htm- the troops without grav shures, 5 or $66.50
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/elyssnipe.htm- the special weapons- snipers without grav shutes, 24 or $45.60, the snipers with grav shutes, 28 or $53.20
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/edtflame.htm- the flamer squad with demo charges without grav shutes, 20 or $38 the flamer squad with grav shutes 24 or $45.60
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/edtmelta.htm- the meltagun squad without grav chutes, 20 or $38, the meltagun squad with grav chutes 24 or $45.60
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/edtmissile.htm- the missile launcher without grav chutes, 27 or $51.30 th missile launchers with grav chutes, 1 or $58.90
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/edthbolter.htm- the heavy bolter squad without grav chutes, 30 or $57, the heavy bolter squad with grav shutes, 34 or $64.60
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/equipment.htm- Elysian equipment so you can customise your guard (a good option) 10 or $19
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/lzequip.htm- Lnading zone equipment (mainly for scnery), 15 or $28.50
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/dsent.htm- the kick ass drop sentinel! 18 or $34.20
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/acatalog...P_TROOPS.html- all of them together with the weapon pack and grav shute packs
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/valkyrie.htm- the Valkyerie drop ship and gunship
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/vulture.htm- vulture gunship, and http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/vulture1.htm alternate weapons


OR
You can use the Cadian models with the Elysain Equipment on them and the grav chutes and possibly the weapons, cheaper but less cool

Use the Cadian Kaskrin models and put a parchute pack on them

Use the cadian models with only a backpack added

Personally the best and cheapest option is to go with cadians with backpacks, but this is less unique and cool, is heaper though

BUT if your a millionare get the FW elysians

Now hope yu appreciate my help and get me some karma!
