Already excited for the battle shots!


Thank you, Viterbi. I enjoy your stuff as well.

Thanks, Capt. Brown. Your stuff is a huge inspiration.

So here is a full army photo as of the end of 2020.



You can see they have borrowed a Lightning Strike Fighter from my White Scars for some tank-busting air support.

The rest is a mix of FW Elysians and Anvil Industries Republicans, sadly both out of print, and a few other misc. models. Thankfully I have a few more FW units in the closet to assemble and paint so I can keep growing this army. I also have some other third party units to add, such as some recon bikers that I am working on now.

You will also notice they have a Medusa Siege Gun. Artillery is not a normal part of a Drop Trooper regiment but that gun was built for a specific city defense scenario and gets used when they are defending a fortification.

More to come.

This was a great thread to binge. That army is amazing!

A real shame ForgeWorld axed the Elysians, but you're right; they're far too realistic looking for GW's grimdark aesthetic.

Thanks, Kid. It’s great to know someone read the thread and enjoyed the models.

Here is an action shot from a game with my brother a while back. The Xhorik 87th Drop Troops regiment Third Company supports the White Scars as they defend the walls of the Kozar city of Berat. This squad of second platoon makes a combat jump from their Valkyrie in order to help secure an objective as Traitor forces breach the gate. (Part of our Horus Heresy campaign. Plenty of full battle reports on our blog.)

Great to see this blog back! I'm surprised the Elysian fits so well in the back of the Valk.
