    Destris' Elysian Log

    Hi all,
    This is the beginning a a long term slow project log about my new FW Elysian army. First of all, a quick list of thank you's for helping me with various models, rules, inspiration and generally how to work with resin:
    Hulkster,
    Gitburna,
    Wintermute,
    Gobboslayer,
    Schoolcomorant and Insane Psychopath for making me get this started,
    And of course the man himself: Deadleyheadley for various, pictures, bases, hints, tips and inspiration.

    Anyway, I now currently have:
    2 Valkyrie w/ Door Gunners
    1 Set of Rocket Pods
    2 Troop Squads
    Melta Squad
    Heavy Bolter Squad
    Command HQ Squad
    2 Cyclops
    Drop Sentinel
    Special Weapons Squad
    Hardened Vets Squad.

    So far I have built the SW squad, Command HQ Squad, the DS and a Cyclops. I'm currently working on the first Valkyrie.

    Anyways, onto the pics:

    Sentinel:

    Sentinel w/ Heavy Bolter

    Sentinel Turned

    Sentinel in bits

    On with the comments! BTW, I am pretty slow at this sort of thing, so don't expect the sort of constant updates Deadley comes up with.

    Re: Destris' Elysian Log

    nice work so far mate, excellent that you've built so much, glad you've got it off the ground (rubbish valk pun).
    you've done an excellent job cleaning up the parts and i bet magnetizing each guy is taking it's time.
    any colour shemes sorted yet?

    Re: Destris' Elysian Log

    Thanks for the comment SC . The colour scheme is going to be Desert yellow fatigues with Grey armour (the taros scheme). I'm also trying it with Vallejo's, this will be my first try with Vallejo paints so I'll see how it goes .

    The Elysians aren't too bad, you just need to wait a while for the superglue to take hold, and the shoulderpads are really nasty. The Valkyrie however. Nothing fits. Seriously. Most of it isn't too bad, but the two main fulelage halves seem to be from completely diffirent sized models, and required a lot of bending as GSing when the were stuck together. Behind the nose at the front of the fuselage was nasty, one bit stuck out quite a way further than the other, and required a lot of filling behind it. Also, the bits on the bottom of the fulelage that go onto the nose were set to be a nightmare, but when I got them glued together they weren't actually so bad, just required a bit of GS.

    Thanks for the comments, keep them coming!

    God had to give Jack Bauer immunity on the sixth commandment "Thou shalt not kill". If he hadn't, Jack would've considered God to be a terrorist and God knows what happens to terrorists.
