In the last few months I started a new Army as an alternate to my Tau and Dark Angels.
I have about 30-35 Cadians and bought a further 35 Mantic troopers to do a scale comparison and these have since turned into Elysians as they are a lot more realistic scale against the GW herocic scale.
This thread will be a slowly evolving project/wip so expect it to grow and grow. At the moment I am more interested in the painting side so will not be too interested in power lists but more rule of cool - what I like or want to paint!
Starting off the next photo is the Mantic Corporation troops painted up as Elysian drop troops.
Forge World Mantic
I was trying to achieve something like the above and ended up with a fairly close match
Next I wanted to do something unusual with the Cadians and I liked the choco-chip 1st Gulf War US pattern desert cam pattern.
Here is my initial trial paint scheme
I decided that I was happy with this scheme so I have gone into production with a further 7 models to complete the first squad.
And as I had a vehicle commander lying around I decided to paint him up too
Here is the first Chimera - the packs and rolls will be painted up in the choco-chip scheme too. Alot of the time the equipment and vehicles where left in the standard green colour but the clothing was the desert cam version hence the vehicles will stay green.
I also have a Techpreist that is all done
There is also a half complete Valkyrie in the works, maybe some photos later
As I said - at the moment I am just painting stuff I want to without any thought to playability so bare with me at first.
The fluff at the moment is that the Cadians and Elysians have joined forces together and the difference in paint schemes is that the Elysians have just arrived and they are yet to receive their desert equipment.
