I have been a long time supporter of Captain Brown, Alphachicken and Demon-Forge's airborne work. After reading through Captains Browns start to finish log I realized that one of the things that has always held me back from finishing an army is a lack of documentation of my process. Its just like getting in shape: you won't get motivated unless you see before and after shots re-affirming your effort!
So with that in mind (and my new "big-boy-job" paycheck in forgeworld's pocket"), I present to you the Elysian 13th : "the Remnants".
I was inspired by Japanese styling kamikaze colors (somewhat suiting for a rather fluffy and suicidal army I think ). I like the idea of an extremely fragmented army made up of surviving bits and pieces of other companies, it gives a little more lee-way for painting multiple color schemes while still tying the army together. I don't have a solid army list down as I like to play fluff over power gaming but it will be melta and veteran heavy with the support of Sentinals, VALKs, and cavalry (for some reason I love the idea of Elysian rough riders made from the Krieg models and I don't like the idea of any elysian foot soldiers not being very mobile). I have already completed test models for my first melta and demo veterans and am finishing up the interior work of my first valk before I whip out the airbrush for my first flyer ever.
I'll put pics up tonight when I get home.
