this is sick! i wish more people knew about the elysian drop troops. they make the cadians look out of date. the lasgun and the helmet look fantastic! and i dig the jetpack too!

Ohh, not all people make the cadians old style..at the imperial guard message board is a guy from GB, building very modern styled troops..I love his style

Hope the link works

But you are right, the elysians looks like very special modern troops, thats the reason why I like them..

But its not a jetpack, its only a gravchute..its a simple version without the skill to go up..only go slowly(relatively ;-)) down

very true! i have seen some neat desert storm marine corps style cadians and this cool idea going around of people using green stuff to model carapace armor onto the legs so they look more like a military outfit instead of a conscripted militia. i know that essentially what the imperial gaurd are but the elysian drop troops look soo badass and uniform, heck even the cadian kasrkin shock troops and the storm troopers look cool. im just not a fan of the whole world war 1 look that they have. i wish gamesworkshop would change the mold to something more like with the respirators or like this [link]

Sorry for the late reply..
Agree again, I do´nt like the old styled armies too.
I know the nice artwork which you had linked, its in my favs..;-)
Its a very cool design indeed.
I do´nt know how he handles both two handed weapons but it looks cool ...

This is some really fantastic work and just all around awesome. Seriously great stuff, you should really be proud because this just looks utterly fantastic. Is that meant to be a bullpup lasrifle with a shotgun as back-up? And an underslung grenade launcher? I am just blown away. Congrats on a great piece of work.

My primary weapon in this equipment and role is the lasrifle with the mounted single shot 40mm grenade launcher (against the warhammer40k universe codex, I using airburst ammo too). My secondary weapon is a shortend pump gun (only with pistol grip) as breecher weapon and life saver...
The bullpub weapon with the added shotgun is done for one of my other (later comin)elysian role.

And.....big thanks for the comment..;-)

The assault pack worn in the front is fixed there only for the drop. After the landing in dropzone the gravchute on the back get removed and the assault pack is worn as a normal backpack.
The shotgun is worn on the right body side on schoulder sling and fixed on the right upper leg with an weapons catch.
At end of the month I do pics of the Equip with all planned part´s.

If there is any chance to fix extra ammo on themselves during a drop.....elysians will do it! Cause HLZ the pods with the ammo supplies goes wrong sometimes.

Sehr genial, die volle Montur so weit.
Wie wäre es mal wieder mit etwas aktiveren Bildern, ähnlich wie beim Bajonettdrill?

Jetzt müssen wir erst mal den GD hinter uns bringen, mal kucken wie Kinrade auf die Klamotten reagiert.
Wird sich dann auch zeigen wie lange das Zeug wie auf dem Bild tragen läßt.
Der Gravchute ist sehr Oberlastig und sitzt auf dem Schulterblättern, das ist ziemlich anstrengend...mit richtigen Bildern will ich warten bis nächstes Jahr, wenn die anderen vier auch vom Ausrüstungstand brauchbar sind.
