Ummm can we get back to Elysians instead of random kvetching about GW and 40k 9th? Don't get me wrong, I like a good gripe session as the next person, but this isn't the place

I got a F/T Casual job 2 days ago in warehouse 25 mins from home. I have been a bit distracted of late when I get home, sorry. My feet and legs are sore at the moment, as I drove a crown stand up forklift for about 5 hours straight today. The Deadman switch springs up into my left foots inner arch.

It is not as bad tonight. I will get onto writing a list probably this weekend, perhaps earlier if my feet get used to it. Most of it will be a bit of cut and paste. with a few changes.

I have designed the army list, but need to now write up the unit statistics.

That should be ready Friday Night.

The 3.1.5 version uses teleport and everyone said it was a hard thing to deal with.

I volunteered to start a redraft of the Elysian list, and there is a new version 4.X which is currently upto version 4.2.0 which I think is the version I want for the Elysians list to look like. It can be found on this page. The list has replaced the teleport with Planetfall, as I had previously tried self-planetfall, and that was a disaster. Everything arrived peicemeal, and got shot up. Planetfall allows for the army to drop in all at once, and then overwhelm the enemy. It is its only change to do something as the army has so many weakness built in - small formaton sizes, no real long range weapons, except for the one shot missiles the expensive vultures have, there is little in the way of MW, and except for the spaceship, no TK weapons.

The list has a lot of smaller companies but they only have range 30cm weapons for every second unit, have no armour save, and easily broken. The easy to break drop sentines provide a range 15cm MW M/Melta, but beng LV with a 6+ save, they die and break quickly. The army is not really designed to sit and take punishment. You have to hit the enemy, select the targets of most threat like Artillery, War Engines, etc and hope you take them out.

Once the enemy is weakened you might be even things up, as your formations slowly get broken, and BMed to death. The army is a brittle hammer. Hits hard and hopes that hit breaks the enemy. If not, try and survive.

Because I do not want to face those german Gargants and Super Stompas each with 2 soopa gunz, backed upby hordes of nasty infantry. I would rather have the other guard forces getting there in time enough to back me up. I am a wuus ya know.

I was never airborne. Australia does not let females in front line roles like infantry, armoured, artillery. The closest I got was as a linie dog - telco rigger, and even then I did not get to go over seas.

As it was, I atleast was a Recruit Instructor for 2 years. I learnt so much I should not have, by fellow RIs.

Anyway, the list is all set. Once I get some battle reports on the 4.2.0 version, I will be putting it forward for review, and hopefully it will go from experimental, to developmental and finally approved.
