Forgeworld Elysian's
« on: April 25, 2018, 10:10:04 PM »
Looks like Forgeworld is going to stop producing their Elysian models. They're doing a final sale on them before they get discontinued. It's a real shame, I always liked those models. They were always on my dream list of "One Day" making an army of them.

If you've got spare cash and you've been planning on picking some up, nows your chance before they're gone.

Seems a bummer.

Think I'd need a bit more than spare cash.  A 10 man squad alone is about $61.  With both command squads I could turn it into 2 squads for another $80 more, although suppose that'd need to be used with a different set of rules.  I like the looks of the ATV and Sentinel, but the two combined are about $95.  Heavy bolters and snipers combined are $96.  All those items purchased together would be around $330!

Welcome to forgeworld. I bet they accept your first born and a kidney or two.

Maybe I could get away with 1 squad, 1 command squad, the ATV,  and the heavy bolters for a total of about $199.  Adding in the snipers would bring it up to $242.

The issue Elsyian's had was that they were competing with Kreig for Forgeworld dollars.  If you are dropping $1200 on a 1500 point army, you'll certainly look to the more exciting and complete Kreig line.

Its too bad they don't just leave these as made to order.

This sucks.

I guess they're going full Horus Heresy, with very little support towards other games.

Fires of Cyraxus were supposed to be released at least two years ago.

Alan Bligh was the man behind those amazing Forgeworld campaigns.  I don't doubt that they have lost a great deal of their creative energy with his death.

Indeed he was. Without him it's just not the same. His ideas and passions were really pushing FW forward. Fuck cancer. Fuck it hard.

Made to order could be wise.

Anyway, I was now contemplating 1 squad, 1 command, the heavy bolters and the snipers.  That brings my cost down a good bit, and provides some decent options for a small sci-fi force of infantry for skirmish games.

Unfortunately they now made them sold out, and I lost my moment to buy.  Total bummer. :icon_sad:
