  1. Hi guys, This has now been slated for a worldwide release on Amazon Prime from the 8th Feb 2019 https://www.ukgarrison.co.uk/news/item/116-heroes-of-the-empire-released.html
  2. In case you guys haven't heard, the documentary is now finished and will be premiered on the 19th August at the National Space Centre in Leicester, UK. Speechless films are currently working on a distribution deal so hopefully you'll all get the opportunity to see it. Check out the full trailer here More info: http://speechlessfilms.co.uk/portfolio/heroes-of-the-empire/
  3. Thanks for the heads up Karin They are of course your wonderful handguards, well spotted! This was one of many photos taken backstage at the 'Preen' show during London Fashion Week back in February. The two designers were big Star Wars fans and had designed a clothing line featuring Star Wars imagery. Now, I'm just the right height for a stormtrooper but those models were amazingly tall with big ol' heels on as well!! It was a fun troop but in all honesty really quite tough being surrounded by lots and lots of models Here's some more photos from backstage: http://www.fashionising.com/runway/b--preen-backstage-aw-14-71766.html#0 Article in Vogue: http://www.vogue.com/fashion-week/861849/preen-fall-2014/

  5. I simply use a bit of industrial strength velcro hook on the inside of the front of my boots which attaches to some velcro loop on the inside front of my shins. Stops the shins raising and twisting Had no problem at all trooping with this over the last couple of years.
  6. Only just seen this as I don't get on here as much as I should - thanks Phil for posting the report and pics The UKG turned out in force to support the event I had organised, so I'm very, very thankful to all you guys! The Galactic Academy were well represented and it looks like there is some potential new recruits after seeing the great costumes. A great time was had by all in raising over £1100 for the fundraising project (www.eastcommonproject.co.uk). The buzz around the village and surrounding areas has been fantastic, so much so it looks like I'm going to arrange 'Redbourn Strikes Back' Can't thank the garrison enough, great bunch of people doing great things together for great causes I'll leave you with one of my favourite pics, the Princess with her number one fan (my Daughter), me on the left and Steve (SW1) on the right!
  7. Nice work Graeme, I appreciate all the photos you've posted. Nice to have a record of what was a cracking induction, now I can't wait for my next one! Sorted out my access for the forums, cheers for the tips mate.
  8. TK 3683 requesting access. http://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=13864 Thanks!
  9. OK time for a long overdue update.... Thanks to a lot of help from Gary, Billy and Pete from the UKG I've FINALLY completed my build and been cleared !! Wow, what a buzz! :dancing-trooper: Now just waiting for my TK number. Here's some pics... Split the biceps and forearms to change from an overlap to a butt join Built my TD kit from Jesse Some clearance pics and my favourite... :smiley-sw013: I'll post up a couple of detail shots of the armour tomorrow including some of Karin's lovely handguards (wow what a difference from the AM guards)!
  10. Looking great Stuart, keep up the good work!
  11. I wouldn't say that the dremel is a bad idea. I just felt that I had more control and could take things slower whilst using the scissors especially when first starting out. I do use a dremel here and there now that I'm a bit more confident working on the white stuff I'm sure you'll be ok just remember to take it slowly at first!
  12. Hey Matthew, I was similarly overwhelmed and put my AM build off a little bit at first as I was too worried that I'd make a mistake and balls it up! All I can say is to start off slowly and trim small bits at a time (there is quite a bit of excess with the AM kit). I found the lexan scissors to be a great help in trimming rather than jumping straight in with a dremel Post lots of pics so that the guys (and gals) in here can give you some great advice which will help to give you the reassurance you need. Don't be afraid to ask loads of questions! Good luck mate, Rob
  13. Bit more of an update... I've fixed the holster to the belt using chicago screws to make packing a bit easier. Need to finish off the kidney/butt plate next... Cheers, Rob
  14. Thanks for your kind words Karin (and not-so-subtle plug ) Definitely interested in a set of your latex hand guards - have people attached them to nomex gloves or has the majority gone for chemical gloves? Cheers, Rob
