Drop troops?

Postby RotweillerofJustice » Thu Feb 20, 2020 2:58 pm

Ok. So I know I’ve been away a while. And the site has gone pretty quiet. But. Does anyone know if the Elysian Drop Troops are rumoured to be coming back in some form?

Doubt it. Back in 2018 FW had a "Last chance to buy" on the figures as they were discontinuing them. Maybe you can do something similar to their rules with the custom regiment rules.

Surely Scions can do most of what they used to do? You lose out on the drop sentinels but have lots of fun to play with now that there are Scion regiment rules?

Well that’s pants. I liked the minis for the Elysians. I’m not into the look of the scions. Oh well.

Use the drop troop models as Scions? If you don't have any models, there's always recasts?

Have to admit that I’ve dug our my old IA3 - The Taros Campaign to look at the Elysian Army lists. Can’t believe it was 2005 it was first printed.
What rule set was in then? 4th or 5th edition?

I found this site after seeing a YouTube video review. They do a lot of OOP items. Includes a limited amount of Elysian troops
