  1. lol Wook beat me to it, make sure you take plenty of progress photos and if ever in doubt, ask questions as we all started right where you are now.
  2. Welcome aboard Grimm, you won’t be disappointed with Marks armour, and workmanship. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I know we have already had this conversation my friend but thank you for the work you could put in this year. Personally I’m very glad that you are staying on staff and in a role that you have always shown such passion for. I hope the rest of the year is far better for you and allows you to do what you love.

  4. You wont have any issue with that. I'll also add that your belt sit across that gap so it would never be seen anyway.
  5. Just an FYI, we currently also allow OTTK boots for basic on the FO TFA Trooper. There will be debate regarding the change to correct boots for that costume so no problem with similar for RotJ costume. FO changes will be the next can off the rank so there may be a little wait before the OT CRLs get more work done. They already had a refresh this year but we will get there.

  6. First of all I would like to thank Joseph for his service this year, life isn’t always kind and you have had more than your fair share of hiccups this year. Glad to see you will be helping the DO’s, you are an asset indeed an I’m sure all the staff and members appreciate what you do. Brien, congratulation on your promotion to XO, keep up the great work.

  8. @Glen, that's a nice crisp TD image, isn't that the one in use already? Perhaps if we had a weathered CRL for RotJ, Pauls image could be very useful in that, but there is an obvious difference in the width of those TD belt clips from the current CRL. If we can get more supportive images of narrow clips, there is a potential; CRL change right there. A step closer to accurate and something very simple.
  9. I agree with what you say here Dan. The fine line is that the CRL's are designed for base level entry. The higher levels were an afterthought brought about on FISD to enhance the look of FX armour which was the only available kit back then. Centurion itself came later on in the piece. The reason DO's have been using screen references has always been more about those higher levels and showing applicants how to look more accurate for those levels so what better reference to use. We are not the RPF, not everyone buys the same armour make, and we are doing our best not to look elitist as we have been labeled in the past. Yes the best representation for a CRL image would be a screen used photo or screen capture but the more we do that at a basic level, the more we remove the 501st element from the picture. Look at what is happening to merch now, do we really want to go down the same path offering no flexibility to members who have zero interest in aiming for the top. Don't get me wrong, I love screen accurate, but I as always there is a bigger picture and I do try and think laterally about that.
  10. The TD image is perfect btw, definitely can use that I think. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Paul I really appreciate the images. I may need to do some homework on this but most of the images used in costume CRL’s are of costumes made by 501st members down to the parts break up. Happy to be wrong on this as source material such as your screen used images are obviously the best. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I agree Glen, simple things like that still got missed but we need some good images and then its an easy update.
  13. I think this is possibly from the TK commander CRL and was copy pasted by mistake to the RotJ CRL. It absolutely does not belong there and should be removed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Welcome Antony, enjoy the journey.
