ELYSIAN DROP TROOP ARMY LIST – v (Last Rev). By Jim ‘Honda’ Kontilis with invaluable assistance from Shmitty, Ginger, Moscovian, John. Luckily I have brought some Elysian drop troops as they first come out, and Here is my list as I’ve tried to set up a quick and mobile force with air support and without artillery. . I love the vulture and want one for my armies. Last year I took pts of Elysians to the Rock using an army list from the old and somewhat 3x Elysian Drop Sentinels: 3x multimeltas.

The best part of being armored is locking khorne hounds in combat for the rest of the game. Remember me Drp is not recommended for shared computers. The command squad climb on top of the compound to get a clear line of sight while staying in range of the second objective.
I must say that when the Beta rules were first announced I was very provoked as they seemed to target armies that rely on their Deepstriking abilities.

I managed to end up in 9th place! But what really makes the enemy shit themselves is a punisher vulture which will rip apart almost any kind of infantry pinning any survivorslight vehicles and light flyers and anything with low toughness or meh armour save MEQs and TEQs wont be wiped out but they will usually lose something and can be pinned.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on 8th Edition and pictures of your beautiful models. It is the one most adaptable to change, that survives.
Get an aegis defence line and man it with your command squad. Keep at least one or two squads depending on objective in the air until it is safe for them to ilst out unless it is ilst kind of emergency. Hungry for revenge Simon moves up his Wraithlord to clear off the pesky guardsmen who are taking pot shots at it with their lasguns.
The rough plan — using the natural deployment advantage of this list, a fire base will be set up to maximise long range shooting and minimise any opponents alpha strike or hoard rush. They are also good for popping tanks and MCs from the safety of the skies. Fire support squads deploy on the landing pad around one of the objectives.
This weapon may only be used once per battle. Check this showcase out: Can passengers disembark from an Elysian Drop Troops Valkyrie on the same turn it is set up on the battlefield, using the Aerial Drop ability?

Welcome to this Warhammer Unbound lists are a thing but you probably want to make use of your deep striking troops in a bound list.
