  1. I’m reasonably sure my grandfather once met RBP. He was a scout master back when they were still called that and scouts wore the hats, and possibly still carried staves. He lived just down the coast from Poole, where the first scout camp was held on Brownsea island. He had several major scout awards, sadly these were all stolen along with his WWII Service medals in the 90s. The scouts runs in my family, I was a scout and achieved my Chief scout award, my sister was an explorer after guides and my mum ran was group scout leader right up until she passed away. The scouts planted a memorial for her in the local park where the scouts, and cubs where often to be found.
  2. The approved post is old but it is kept updated as stuff changes. I can’t remember if the FOTK stuff is on there but there is a list somewhere. Also worth searching the forum generally for that maker name as I’m sure they’ve been brought up before.
  3. I take it these are the people you approached? As far as I can tell they are your regional Garrison. http://www.ar501st.com/
  4. There's plenty about them but the short of it is it's fine for Halloween but if you want to join the 501st there's many other better options.
  5. I’m pretty sure that TM will ship anywhere, but he’s UK based.
  6. I wonder what caused them not to used the R1 helmets as well as the armour. Looks like the angle to me, they aren't quite at the same photo angles. If I take mine and turn it right it looks pretty close, also I can't really think of any other buckets with such a distinctive eye surround.
  7. I haven’t seen any of the episodes yet, yay March release time , but do we even know if these are imperial troopers? Wouldn’t be the first time someone who shouldn’t wore the white armour.
  8. For boots there’s always the traditional method: black Chelsea boots painted white. For an ANH trooper the holster is always on the left hip. It’s nothing to do with the handedness of the trooper it’s how they were on screen. In many scenes you see all troopers carrying lefty. I know many troopers who emulate this when trooping but I personally struggle so only do it when the look requires it.
  9. Troop #18 - 16 November 2019 - MCM ComicCon Birmingham (approx 7 hours in armour) Good solid troop this one. There was a good group of us for most of the day plus an officer for most of it too. Started out in the entrance way guiding people in from the trains. I some how managed to get a feature in the con closing video from this! Just before lunch we took part in the Silver Sabres display with Lord Vader as guest of honour. After lunch the con was incredibly busy making moving around pretty hard so we spent most of our time on the club stand. This was at a pretty decent location right by one of the doors into the hall. As the con calmed down towards the end we were able to get out and patrol a bit more but by then most of us were pretty much done for the day. Not overly sure what everones name was who was in the group, that happens when theres over 300 member in attendance and your bad with names! I know @CableGuy was one though, maybe he can shed some more light on it! Photos by assorted UKG members, sorry guys I forgot to note down who took them!
  10. Emoji aren’t enabled/supported I’m afraid. There are some smilies you can use if you know the short code or use the menu above. If you type an emoji into the forum directly it won’t let you post. Tapatalk does it’s own thing but it’s not supported by us.
  11. A large suitcase will also be a good option. What ever you go for just make sure it fits into your chosen method of transportation.
  12. The email you provided is correct for that account. As far as I can see there is no reason why they shouldn’t be able to log in. If you can get the exact error we might be able to narrow it down more.
  13. This wasn’t aimed at you, more of a general reminder. It was possibly a bit course as I’ve been spoilt multiple times today before I posted that. Long wait. Some regions are next year. But various sea captains are sailing at the moment nullifying some of that.
  14. Also in team “not available in my region”. Etiquette says give people time to see it before posting spoilers with out warning. Hard for this one given the long lead times for some regions but at least give a heads up in your post. Ideally leave out any spoilers unless 100% needed or I’ll be editing your post.
