Progress on the Elysians

Thought I better do a post and let everyone know I'm alive.

So I've been pretty busy with everything... Including having a smashing holiday in Devon, if you discount it raining. Then it wouldn't be a UK holiday without rain.

So enough of my life and onto the items you want to be seeing. I'm close to completing another squad, the third of my four veteran units. Converted my master of the fleet, built the first command squad, made more objectives, started attending a wargames club and got some more games in. WooT

Gaming Wise, I attended the York Wargames Society and played a couple of games against a now seemingly regular opponent (Neil Kerr or more likely known to most as Skuzzlebum). Really enjoyed it, got beaten both times and started to see where I could improve my force. So the getting beaten bit, I'm not fussed as he is the third best demon player... in the world according to rankings HQ.

So the changes I've noted and need to look into is the snipers must go. They have done nothing for me. The options I have and need to look into is all flamers or more potently all plasma weapons with a medic... Plan would be to drop in, shoot lots and kill lots. The medic would be there to give me the all important back up should I get the inevitable overheating weapons... Oh well just some more resin crack to buy :D

I'll work on a new 1000pts list, but also importantly get onto that critical 1500pts as I need to get gaming with it.

Time for pics, me thinks...

They're looking swell, matey - I love the fleet officer's head!

Glad you enjoyed beautiful (wet) Devon - had I known you were coming I'd have invited you for a game!

- D.

Excellent stuff. I really like the Elysian models.

Your Master of the Fleet looks great, it's amazing what a simple head swap can do!

Wow realised I never replied to you guys.

@ Drax - I'm not sure the wife would have been too happy me hauling my army down on holiday with me. Though the very wet Devon was beautiful and certainly somewhere I'll be returning. I wanted to get to Wistmans Wood, but the weather got in our way... next time!

@Frag_Dad - Yeah, lovely and simple conversion but it has some great base models to make it great :)
