  1. Troopers, As you know, the Kyber and Jedha Rogue 1 troopers are going to be calling the MEPD home. We are working on the CRL now. If anyone here has either of the packs and armor and is willing to be our models, please let me know ASAP. We'd love to get this done soon. I'll check back on this thread, so post here and we'll be in touch.
  2. I think this comment again goes back to several years ago and what I'm assuming was the mindset back then. We are very keen on expanding our CRLs. Just so everyone is aware, MEPD is working on a CRL for the Special Edition trooper. How do I know? I'm the command staff member working on the initial draft and the wording while we get pictures to make it official. So keep an eye out for at least a partial draft coming soon.
  3. My question is where do we go from here? I'd like to see these CRLs done before episode 8, because I'm sure we'll get new costumes from it and I don't want these to lose steam.
  4. This to me seems to be the easiest way for both detachments to get some of the new Rogue One goodness. I really think it could bolster the MEPD with some new costumes, much like the Shoretrooper at Pathfinders (not looking to stir up that debate here, just saying). I also think the SE Sandtrooper could be a nice addition as well. Of course, it's all moot until the LMO decides. I can see where dutchy comes from though, in that we'd love to have all the pack troopers over at MEPD, but that's not going to happen realistically after all the love FISD has given the HWT. I'm really looking forward to the decision being made so we can get some CRLs done.
  5. This is a fascinating discussion. As a Sandtrooper myself and part of the MEPD command staff, I would love to see some expansion of our CRLs. I agree with one point raised above, there should probably be a CRL for the Special Edition trooper for anyone who may be interested. I'm not keen on the look myself as the weathering is very heavy, but why should I prevent someone else from doing it if that's what they want. That being said, I would love to see the Jedha trooper in the MEPD. I know there are some small pieces that make it fit with the OT TK, but the overall look to me says Sandtrooper. And for the comment above about MEPD being a ghost town, we've had an increase in traffic since the last election and I think having the Jedha trooper could help increase our traffic even more. I also think it's interesting that the official movie book called the Jedha troopers sandtroopers. I would think that anyone who buys that book and sees that pictures would think to look at MEPD for that CRL. Wouldn't want to confuse new recruits more than they already can be with the wealth of information. I understand you're love here for the HWT. I don't know that we could take that from you, but I personally think the Jedha trooper is a natural fit for us.

  8. This was posted over on MEPD today. Thought I would share it here with you guys, especially those who are making those Jedha backpacks. If you are making one of these new packs, come join us over at MEPD. The OP got this picture from the new book "STAR WARS Rogue One: The Complete Visual Guide".

  11. It's looking good. You might be able to get the frown openings a bit bigger, but be careful not to go to much. If it was me, I probably would leave them as is.
  12. One thing I've heard from members in my own Garrison who have Anovos kits is that the plastic is very thin in some areas. One member completed his kit only a few months ago and already has cracks in the plastic in the helmet and another area (and I don't think he's been rough on it). Not trying to persuade you away from Anovos, but something to consider.

  14. Does anyone have one these that would be willing to trade 1 for 1? I have an Alpine Garrison patch that I'd be willing to trade for one. PM me if you're willing. Thanks in advance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I'm your weird cousin, the sandtrooper. I'll take 1. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
