  4. One of the nicknames I have for my eldest daughter is "Snips". From an early age she showed how similar to Asoka she was, and still is. Kids were offered 2 names for our BC: Rex or Ben. They chose the latter. He's generally more Ben Solo than Ben Kenobi though
  5. I think we may have another AP coming up. Else let me know if I can help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Good to see you back at it, Mark. How close are you to completion now? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hi from Melbourne [emoji4] My advice is two-fold. Don’t let the blaster (or lack thereof) hold up your basic approval. It’s not required and you can add it later. Secondly, if it’s an either/or situation go for the E-11. As you’re wearing a holster you can easily stow it, unlike the DLT which you’ll need to lug all troop. Also, consider where you’re going to be trooping. I can’t speak for NSW, but in VIC many of the public places are becoming weaponless troops - further to that IIRC hospital and the likes of Ronald McDonald House are weaponless as well. Indoor troops vary, but space is generally limited, and a large weapon (and backpack if you’re doing a HWT, Magma or Sandy) becomes uncomfortably unwieldy (think of a packed Oz Comicon or SupaNova venue). We’re also finding our booth space is being limited more and more down here, and at the last Con we pretty much told troopers to stow all gear, including weapons they couldn’t carry, in their cars.

  9. Wow! That looks great Mark! Do you mean the outside details? I don’t think it matters whether you assemble or paint first [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Great to meet you yesterday, Mark. Hopefully the AP has reinvigorated you [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Great to see you back on it, mate! Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  13. Purely for completeness: a final update to close out this build thread. TK27777 reporting for duty! After 2 years this build is finally over. I was approved earlier this week. I’ve still got a few wearability enhancements to make (studs, remove more return edge, helmet fans, and of course my blaster), but probably won’t take this kit beyond L1 (never say never [emoji1]). Thanks go to those in the group who provided advice and guidance. There’ve been many, too many to mention individually, build threads I’ve followed and taken nuggets from. Off the top of my head though,@Kman,@Ukswrath,@Cricket,@themaninthesuitcase (I know I’ve typed that wrong... again!),@Rat Ferrel... if I’ve failed to mention you, don’t take offence, I’m pretty forgetful [emoji1]lol Instead of loading this post with my submission photos, here’s the one my Garrison used [emoji4] P.s. how do I get Detachment access/status updated? I can’t seem to post in the “sign off” forum. Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  14. Hi Dan I’m a member of Knightfall Garrison, in Melbourne, Australia. We have several interstate and international members who regularly troop with us. If you travel to Melbourne with your kit, look up our site, join the forum and say hey. [emoji4] Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  15. 100% agree. I think it may have been you that put me onto the Prym (?) products through one of your posts. Haven’t looked back since getting one of their tools. Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
