The kit also comes with a lot of accessories; pouches, knives, grenades, etc. The same was to be said with the Krieg, and i found it all a bit to fiddly! Besides, the Krieg are expected to die in the middle of no-mans land so to me it didn't make sense to load them up with equipment, only for it to lay rotting in the mud!
With the Elysians i went the opposite way. As they'll be dropping in behind enemy lines and operating without resupply, it made sense for them to be totally tolled up! Plus they look that extra bit cooler!
