I was wondering if anyone could give me a rundown of the parts included in each 'box' of elysians (ie. a sniper squad, a standard squad, etc etc). Pictures would be handy.

I'm thinking of making a kill team as a prelude to my Karadz Westers army (Which are based on elysians), and would like to know which kit is best to get the best variety of parts.

Also, does anyone know how easy it is to attach the weapons in the Elysian Weapon Pack to the relevant arms? Is it possible without heavy converting, or are they best of representing un-used weapons?

Lasgun arms are difficult to convert to special weapons because the bullpup magazine is generally against the forearm. It's a cut and greenstuff job for most of them. You really need the arms from the command squad or meltagunners to easily use for the special weapons.

Dunno, cause I aint got it. But if it comes in the command HQ, you aint got much choice but to buy the whole squad!

also buying a large number of units gives you spares, best sets are meltagun and flamer sets at £20 a guy you get a spare body with flamer and you get some spare special weapon arms with meltagun unit, combined with spare legs you get with command squads allows you to bulk up army
