Hello Warseer! I thought I'd post a thread of my happenings and such.

At the moment I'm finishing up my 500 points of D-99 inspired Elysians, after which I will embark upon the horrible monolith of apocalypse in the form of a large mechanised guard army. I also have a mars pattern Warhound en route from Japan I just won off ebay so I'm going to have alot of crap to get through.

First up I'll post what I've done, please excuse my camera work, I suck.

The Elysian 12th Ranger Regiment

Elite even among the famous Elysian drop troops, the Rangers are a battle hardened light infantry unit designed to operate deep behind enemy lines without the close aerial support the regular drop troops enjoy.

Because of their deep ranging nature, Rangers rarely ride in the low altitude Valkaries, instead opting towards the large high altitude transport 'Albatross'. While this carries them above most enemy anti-aircraft fire, it means that the Rangers are forced to rely on themselves once on the ground, and must fight and hold out until relieved by advancing ground troops.

Lacking the usual Vulture support afforded to regular Elysian regiments, Ranger fireteams are extremely heavily armed and utilise high altitude deployed Tarantulas for perimeter defense. Apart from these the only other vehicles utilised by the Ranger Regiments are Sentinels.

Too much ghost recon infected me with a need to do a modern 'special forces' feel guard army. I realise Marines are special forces but the whole '8 foot tall swinging a chainsaw into somone's head' thing just didn't have the subtle, agile edge I wanted, hence...

anyway on with the show
