  1. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/13-field-training-exercises/ No there is nothing on the 501st site for troop tracking
  2. Mineral turps and polish is usually enough to remove paint. Looks like you'll have a bit to do at the armor party, luckily there are some ready to lend a hand. You can also add a little white paint to the rim of the mic tips. Also E6000 will stick to foam if you want to use that behind your sniper plate Good luck with the progress
  3. Nice work, good to see you are taking it in small steps, I've seen a few go straight in and take 2 inches off and end up taking too much off
  4. Great work everyone. FYI why does everyone give me an extra N, we were poor and could only afford one N (Glen)
  5. Found my copy this morning, had it in a download photobucket files folder. One of the funniest images I've seen in my time here. Not just the fact that many are wearing the pauldrons, it's also the fact they are wearing them on the wrong sides
  6. Have been looking at one of these for a while and it's the voice changer aspect which is really what I was after, thanks for the info @justjoseph63 I'll see if others have had similar issues before perusing one, for now I'll just stick with the Icomm and Aker, pretty stable and not much goes wrong, internal battery had to be replaced but I did the @Sly11 mod so can swap and recharge at any time (may need to update those photos Andrew ) Anyone interested here is the battery replacement thread
  7. Can't comment yet we don't get it for another week down under
  8. Not sure what you mean "with no pure lineal border on sides" With regards to higher level approval of any costume you could contact the Deployment Officers: With Unquestioned Loyalty Sha Sha Chu TK-19233 "shashachu" Senior Deployment Officer With Unquestioned Loyalty Daniel Melin TK-99665 "TheSwede" Senior Deployment Officer With Unquestioned Loyalty Mike Souza TK-11463 "msouza" Deployment Officer With Unquestioned Loyalty Joseph Pedigo TK-10963 "justjoseph63" Deployment Officer
  9. Nice work, using a piece of curved wood behind could also have assisted you so you had a base to form too. TD design is much like the early Anovos which also required a lot of filling, good luck, it's a pain getting into those edges
  10. Great news, congratulations trooper and welcome to the ranks. Suppling references of the sniper plate when you apply for EIB and Centurion will help the DO's and shouldn't be a hold up for approval, not sure when the next ROTJ CRL updates will happen as the OT series went through some updates not so long ago. As always the CRL's are a work in progress, as you may notice white/tan soles aren't even a photo reference on the CRL, one of many things still requiring update. Just to your helmet, a lot of helmets had a small amount of white showing under the brow, with your helmet it looks as if you have a droopy/winky look as the trim is a bit lower on the right eye Once again congratulations
  11. Could be a question to ask on JRS (Jolly Roger Squadron)
  12. Nice work, I like the fact you are more worried about continuing your build than the arrival of the new youngling
  13. Nice work trooper, congratulations, looking smart (well dirty )

Advanced Tactics Awards EIB - The March To 1000 Merchandise & Branding Officer Public Relations Follow FISD Attention All Troopers, I have just become aware that on July 31st, we lost Thomas Gardner, TK-5940 (RogueTrooper). Thomas was the DL that first asked me to be on the Staff, first as Imperial Sentry then as Provost Marshal. A lot of you may not know him, he wasn't active here for a while, but he was one of my first non Garrison 501st friends. So he was one of the first to show me how the 501st can bring people together to support one another and promote good will to everyone, a quality that seems to be harder to find at times. Troopers helping Troopers, always a good thing he promoted. He left the staff of the FISD to Command the Carolina Garrison, there he dedicated most of his time. I have missed his presence here and now I'll miss his friendship in life. Rest in Peace my Friend... Buckets off Troopers. With Unquestioned Loyalty Mark Ryner TK-4584 "captsafe66 " FISD/Fire Team Director Greetings Troopers, Business as usual this month. Our racing shirt run has just come to a close with a record number of sales (nearly 700 as of last count) which will be going to manufacturer soon! Additionally, the first pass on the TFA Stormtrooper CRL update has been posted and is open for discussion (see the link below from Harbinger). With Unquestioned Loyalty Sarah Bailey TK-20466 "Alay" Detachment Leader Greetings Troopers! I was very honored when Sarah asked me to take over XO duties from Joseph - these will be very tough shoes to fill, but I will do my best! In the short term, my main focus will helping finish the FOTK CRL updates as well as continuing my DMBO duties (new merch is on the way soon!). Long term I would like to focus on making these forums easier to use for new and existing members (archiving old and broken threads, potential forum reorganization - nothing drastic! - etcetera). Beyond that - I defer to you, our members. What would you like us to do better? Change? Stop doing? Drop me a PM, I am open to any and all ideas, and I will spend the remainder of this term doing what I can to make them happen. With Unquestioned Loyalty Brien Edick TK-92802 "Harbinger" Executive Officer - Merchandise & Branding Officer CRL Updates, we are currently working on FOTK updates which have been posted here for feedback/review: Additionally a poll is currently running regarding a change for Centurion (level 3) submissions and whether the helmet vocoder may be a separate piece: With Unquestioned Loyalty Brien Edick TK-92802 "Harbinger" Executive Officer - Merchandise & Branding Officer With Unquestioned Loyalty Steve Sheades TK-10466 "starsaber25" Provost Marshall Greetings, troopers! As always, the Deployment Officers are very pleased to see the steady stream of EIB and Centurion applications. In order to help streamline the process, we've created an updated photo checklist to help applicants ensure they're including all of the necessary photos for their submission. Note that this checklist is meant for Original Trilogy-era troopers Link here Once the CRL updates for the FOTKs are finalized, we'll publish a checklist for those as well. We hope you find it useful, and you can always reach out to any of the DOs if you have any further questions With unquestioned loyalty, Sha Sha Deployment Officers With Unquestioned Loyalty Sha Sha Chu TK-19233 "shashachu" Senior Deployment Officer With Unquestioned Loyalty Daniel Melin TK-99665 "TheSwede" Senior Deployment Officer With Unquestioned Loyalty Mike Souza TK-11463 "msouza" Deployment Officer With Unquestioned Loyalty Joseph Pedigo TK-10963 "justjoseph63" Deployment Officer The FISD is pleased to announce the addition of a new area in the Advanced Tactics forum dedicated to those ready to submit for basic 501st TK approval. This section will allow future Troopers the opportunity to submit photos of their completed build to be reviewed by the Staff, Imperial Attaches and others in preparation for forwarding it to their GML for approval. Any and all advice/suggestions given will be specific, constructive, helpful and respectful. Please note that this program will NOT take the place of your local GML, as Detachments are not chartered for costume approval and can not override a GMLs decision, but is instead a peer review program designed to help you look your best and offer guidance and positive feedback. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about your completed armor, weapons (if applicable), accessories, etc. and get accurate information from the experts here at the FISD.. the definitive home of TKs worldwide. For more information on this program, please visit the link here Contributor Awards Congratulations to Cricket (Christine) TK 10401 our newest recipient of the 3D contributors award Greeting fellow Troopers, Don't forget to visit our 3D section when next surfing the FISD forums, there is plenty of useful information to potentially help you on your next TK adventure.

With Unquestioned Loyalty Andrew Franke TK-11469 "Sly11" PRO - Awards & Twitter We understand not everyone can help build multiple sets of armour for their fellow troopers, nor own a 3D printer or have the time and skill set to design and offer free 3D files to the detachment. There is however one thing we all can do, and that is troop. Here is your opportunity to stand and be recognised for simply trooping in your TK. We're rolling out a new award system to encourage and reward our members who take the time to post up their field training exercises and keep a troop log. As you attend events and post logs, you'll earn these shiny profile badges, here are a few: Keep the troop logs coming folks, not only can you earn the badge but you can show others your favorite troops. You know we love photos here on the forums. Simply start (or update!) your troop log, keep the running total in the title, and post (at least!) a date and name for the official 501st event where you wore your TK! Once you've hit a milestone count, go over to the "Field Exercise Awards -- Post your milestones here" thread to request your profile be updated! Simple, right? Troop log title examples: Milestone post example: Milestone and Troop Log Title: [100] TK12345 My troop log Date and Event: 8/23/2019 -- Death Star Cooking Class FAQ: Do my past troops count? Yes! You can update your troop log thread with all your past events for credit Is there any costume requirement?You have to have attended the event in a costume that falls under the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment for credit. We love pictures from any events with white armor though, so even if you attended an event in another costume with stormtroopers present don't hesitate to show off!Do I have to include pictures?Pictures are not required, but are highly encouraged!

Some people spend countless hours helping others, and want to reward their results as well as incentivizing new people to help as well. To register a “win” in the program, the assistance must have provided hands-on help trimming, building, and/or fitting of said armor for the person who was awarded Expert Infantry status. Other program notes: • Helping remotely, giving advice, or taking payment in exchange for help does not account, all work must be voluntary and without expectation of compensation. • The assistance must be for a period of 30 minutes or more. Spending 15 minutes tweaking someone’s fitting or taking photos does not count. • "wins" can be retroactive, e.g. if you helped 5 people in 2017 already, those can count as long as they are fully documented. Award Levels • 5+ “wins”: FISD Armorer Badge • 15+ “wins” FISD Senior Armorer Badge • 25+ “wins” FISD Master Armorer Badge The process • Person applying for the award will create an application thread to track the help they give. • For each “win”, they will list the person they helped achieve Expert Infantry status by copying their EI approval thread. • For each “win”, the person who was helped will validate that this person helped them. You can find the master award area here https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/182-fisd-master-armorer-program/ Happy post Halloween Troopers!This month we welcome a trooper from Garrison Argentina TK - 14022 Nadia to the Stormtrooper Hall of Fame!Thank you for sharing your Field Exercises with us! With Unquestioned Loyalty Aaron Gibson TK-99725 "Pyrates" Curator Hall of Fame United's New Star Wars Plane United Airlines is cashing in on “Star Wars” movie mania with a swanky new airplane emblazoned with imagery from the iconic space opera. The repainted Boeing 737-800 will take flight in November ahead of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” which hits theaters Dec. 20. The “space shuttle” won’t ferry passengers to a galaxy far, far away, but it will fly multiple routes spanning Canada, the US, Central America and the Caribbean.. In accordance with the theme, the outside of the navy-blue aircraft carries images — from nose to tail fin — of TIE fighters and X-wing fighters, while glowing lightsabers adorn either side of the tail. The interstellar makeover is not limited to the exterior. Once inside, passengers will be greeted with special plaques and headrests bearing the Resistance and First Order emblems, as well as amenity kits stamped with the “Star Wars” insignia. (Hey, who doesn’t want a star-spangled eye mask for red-eye flights?) Plus, starting in December, passengers will get to board the livery to John Williams’ classic “Star Wars” theme. The theme even extends to the in-flight safety video, which the United account teased on Twitter Friday. The standard spiel is intercut with clips from the “Star Wars” films — including one of C-3PO and R2-D2 — as well as plugs for various exhibits around the world. And in typical “Star Wars” fashion, the last half of the briefing is delivered via hologram, reminiscent of the iconic Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) scene from “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope.” Challenge Coin Rules October - November A few troops from around the globe PCCF Support our Survivors 5K By: Dave, TK79008, "MrFlavaFlave" UCF Star Wars Class By: Derek, TK83125, "DZFireMedic" Flocky's Funeral, fallen but not forgotten By: Glen, TK85421, "gmrhodes13" Australian International Movie Convention Gala Dinner By: Glen, TK85421, "gmrhodes13" Telethon Kids Carnival Day By: Glen, TK85421, "gmrhodes13" Halloween Bash - Pleasant Valley By: Don, TK21393, "bishopdonmiguel" Hampton ComiCon By: Pam TK10867 "kekike2002" kekike2002" Lego World - Stockholm By: Daniel, TK99665 "TheSwede" Boo at the Zoo - Sacramento By: David, TK21999 "NeoNines" Spooky Cycle Bike a Thon By: Mike, TK82666"WhiteWalker" Retail Embargo Lift For most of the year we are under an embargo from LFL and can not attend retail locations unless prior approval has been given by them. At certain times of the year this embargo is lifted, generally around Blu-Ray / movie releases, May 4th and Force Friday, the recent correspondence from LFL outlines the lift of the embargo: "While there is currently a retail moratorium on character appearances in effect, it is being lifted during the following days: November 14 - 17 -- ok to appear at retailers offering the new game Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Dec 1-31 -- ok to appear at retailers selling SW-related merchandise for the holiday season Dec 19-26 -- ok to appear at theaters showing The Rise of Skywalker All fans, costumed or otherwise, can participate with venues of their choice within these windows with the restriction that costumed appearances must not be used in the advertising for the event. Although these appearances will be treated like an open invite, we’ll leave it to the fan groups to independently organize around these events as they see fit. LFL will not need to approve or coordinate these. Please note that retail locations should not include restaurants, bars, or venues with no apparent reason to feature Star Wars characters. In the coming weeks and months, we may send out a list of ‘preferred' retailers from certain regions who would welcome fans to participate at their venues within these event windows, but you are all still welcome to make plans with appropriate retailers or venue hosts of your choice regardless of whether or not they appear on the list.Thanks everyone, and thanks for all you do "Please note that retail locations should not include restaurants, bars, or venues with no apparent reason to feature Star Wars characters. If the retail location does not stock Star Wars products you should NOT be attending." *REMEMBER* Always follow your garrison/squad's guidelines when in comes to organising Disney/LFL promotional troops, only command staff can deal direct with LFL. Serve proudly, ladies and gentlemen, and as Tim (Dark CMF) says: "Keep doing what it is that got you here"! Are you an approved TK that spends more time on the boards than the average Trooper? Do you enjoy using your knowledge to help out future and existing Troopers? If so, we would like to invite you to join the Imperial Attaché program! Members of the I.A. team are chosen to help out not only those here on the boards, but on a local level as well. Our aim is to have at least one in each and every Garrison, Squad and Outpost in the entire legion to be the eyes and ears of the FISD on a local level. A suggested level of EIB or above is preferred, as part of the duties include assisting those aiming for levels 2 and 3, but is not a requirement. Being active on the boards on a regular basis , welcoming new members and helping out where you can is, though. Some of the benefits: 1. Access to exclusive Attaché merch., including patches, etc. 2. Having the Imperial Attaché title under your name. 3. Being a part of the team that welcomes new and prospective members of the FISD. 4. Being the "go-to" person in your Garrison, Squad or Outpost. 5. Exclusive access to the Attaché HQ area, Imperial Propaganda Machine (newsletter) and merchandise discussions. We are currently in need of Attaches in many units, especially International Garrisons/Squads and Outposts. For more information on this program, please head here and if you should have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at any time. (Pretzel) For a complete list of Imperial Attaches, go here NEW ATTACHES! Please join me in welcoming our newest Imperial Attaches! Newest Attache: Jose (TK 71627) Jose hails from the Star Garrison. As an enthusiastic trooper welcoming new members on the boards, we can be breath easy knowing that Jose will be on the front lines giving sound advice to troopers on the boards and his garrison. We look forward to his contributions. ATTACHE TIP OF THE MONTH Return Edges We all have questions on those pesky edges on our armor. The legend JustJoseph63 posted a very helpful guide to answer some of those common edge questions. IMPERIAL ATTACHE AWARD Imperial Attaché Award for those attaché's who have gone above and beyond [minimum 1 year of service] You can find a list of prior recipients here ATTACHE MERCHANDISE Attaché Patch For those of you on the Imperial Attaché staff, the official I.A. patches are available Here are the details.. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! Patches will be limited to TWO per person, and will only be sold to those who are current FISD Imperial Attaches. These patches have been graciously DONATED to the FISD, so all you will need to do is cover the cost of shipping and PP fees, which will be $1.00 each for those in the U.S. and P.R. and $1.50 each for those outside the U.S. What a deal! Thank you Joseph @justjoseph63for looking after these. You can find the thread here ATTACHE ROCKER For those of you on the Imperial Attaché staff, the official I.A. rockers are now available. Link below Attaché Ambassador With Unquestioned Loyalty Preston Christman TK-91488 "Pretzel PRO Lead - Attaché Ambassador COMPETITION WINNERS Troopers Helping Troopers Photo Contest Congratulations to the following troopers 1st Place Freduster 2nd Place Easy 3rd Place: Hotel Thank you to everyone else who entered. With Unquestioned Loyalty Preston Christman TK-91488 "Pretzel" PRO Lead - Attaché Ambassador So what exactly are EIB (Expert Infantry Badge) and Centurion levels? These programs were designed for those who choose to take their armor above and beyond the minimum requirements for basic 501st Legion approval. It gives you the chance to show a level of dedication and pride that takes your armor closer to being as "screen accurate" as possible, without as much extra work as you may realize! It also works on giving a better look to the Legion as an entity, and you can bet others will take notice of your hard work. The 501st has a list of detailed requirements for Basic approval, (level 1), EIB, (level 2) and Centurion, (level 3) which can be found here in the Costume Reference Library, (CRL) http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:FISD_CRL Here are a few of the questions people may be wondering about: 1. "I am a (tall/short/heavy/thin) Trooper. Can I still apply? Of course! These programs are open and encouraged for all sizes of TKs, as long as the costume is correct and meets the guidelines. There are many specific build tutorials to every option, as well as a vast network of fellow TKs on the FISD to help you out and offer suggestions. 2. "How much extra will I have to pay for extra items"? The cost is actually quite reasonable, considering the few extra supplies you will need, which are listed in the requirements area. While it may run you a little more to implement these additions to your costume, they will go a long way to improving accuracy. All needed items can be found for sale on this thread: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/16-ongoing-sales-project-orders/ While blasters are not required for basic approval, for EIB and Centurion levels they are, and may need upgrades (also listed in the CRL). 3. "I haven't even got my kit yet, is it too early to start planning"? Actually, aiming for Centurion is easiest to do right out of the box. 4. "I have my basic TK approval, can I still get in these programs"? In a word... absolutely! 5. "Are there any "perks" to this extra work and cost"? Besides knowing that you have a great looking set of armor, the 501st and FISD believes you should be deservedly recognized for your achievement(s), and allows you to wear the appropriate embroidered "rocker" badge of rank (available for a very minimum cost) on your shirt, helmet bag, etc., as well as rank decals to put on your armor bin. You will also have access to select "challenge coin" runs, receive (free) a cool certificate for your new rank, and have your title posted below your name in your FISD signature. Plus, once you reach these levels, you will have the extra knowledge to help out those who are looking to apply as well. 6. "Is it hard to apply, and what happens then"? After basic approval, all you do is make sure your armor is up to the standards set forth in the CRL, post a thread with the required photos in the appropriate area (see below), and wait a bit for the D.O.s (Deployment Officers) to address it. (Hint: Studying other people's threads before you submit can be a GREAT help). These are also listed on the main page of the FISD site. While waiting for approval, you will get some comments from others who will offer suggestions and constructive advice to help you out. If you should need any changes, the DOs will let you know, so you can adjust accordingly. Don't be dismayed if you do need changes... it's all for your benefit! After you are approved for EIB, then you can submit for Centurion. EIB https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/19-request-expert-infantryman-status/ Centurion https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/72-request-centurion-status/ Just remember that the FISD is here to help you every step of the way with whatever other questions you may have, but if you can't seem to find what you are looking for in your research, just ask away here on the forum. This area lists all those who have gone above and beyond basic approval toward screen accuracy. FOR October - November the 1st Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment would like to congratulate: Expert Infantry Badge Award: Ivan B.

Request your free Centurion certificate here If you see any of these Troopers around your Garrison or Squad, be sure to congratulate them! As many of you are aware, the FISD is currently in our March to 1000 program. Our goal is to reach the one thousand mark of Troopers who have earned their Expert Infantry Badge, and although we are well on our way to this goal and have just reached the 947 mark! The amount of approved submissions is increasing thanks to the dedication of those willing to go the "extra mile" toward screen accuracy. Here is a brief description of EIB as written by Paul (Daetrin), our founder: "Expert Infantryman status is not required for members of this detachment. It should be viewed as an optional set of requirements for those who wish to take the accuracy of their costumes to the next level, and be recognized accordingly. We're a costuming club - think of it as an award for costuming excellence and you get the picture. The requirements will not replace or supersede 501st standards, but only serve as an inspiration for the level of accuracy that can be achieved. The standards are meant to be high but achievable..." Besides the added pride you will have in your armor, those reaching this level can purchase exclusive EIB gear (patches, decals, coins etc.) and get a free certificate for your accomplishment. If you are interested or would like more information about the program head here that will help. You can also contact myself "Pretzel" or any Imperial Attaché, and we will be more than happy to assist you!

  15. Looked like an awesome event, shame you couldn't add any more photos, joking
  16. I prefer using a Dremel (or knock off brand) cutting disc and sanding drum, but make sure you wear gloves, long sleeve shirt and safety glasses and mask, those little fibres can be annoying in the wrong spots External I use a combination of sanding drum, files, sandpaper and burr tips, come in all different shapes and sizes too and can really get into tight areas
  17. Gloves on last for me too, easy to swap out the cotton inner gloves then
  18. Nice work, nothing major that stands out for basic approval but you could do just a couple of tweaks: The chest plate appears to be sitting quite low, you don't have a lot of room between it and your ab plates. Thighs are at slightly different heights. Shoulder bells are very round on the corners, not so much on the references, you could move them in a little too. You have quite a large gap between the ab and kidney, perhaps try tighter strapping, makes your cod stick out on the side photos. Also are the thigh rivets painted white? You do have quite a large gap under the front bottom of the sniper plate, although this perhaps won't be seen in approval images Helmet trap decal (above brow trim) isn't quite central to the recessed area, also on cheek. If applying for higher levels you may wish to paint so they fit into the recesses a little better. Could also match both sides of paint on the vocoder You may want to bring up the brow a little, most references show a little white under the brow Ideally boot soles should be white/tan but for basic ok You may also be able to get your shoulder straps to sit down a little more on the back. Some tighter strapping between the back plate and kidney. Belt and TD could come up a bit. One other thing is your right thigh appears the overlap is showing slightly open, ideally you should overlap outside over inside so no gap is seen from the outside. Once again great work and good luck with approval
  19. Looking good. I used 16mm arms Legs 20mm Rear of shins 25mm Here are is one of the threads in pre approval noting some of the things needed to be upgraded for SDS, just as a reference https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/47281-jayse01-requesting-pre-approval-review/
