  2. Welcome and all the best from your favourite neighbours! Hup Holland Hup!
  3. I'd be up for that! Lots of free time on my hands right now
  4. Hi Dan, welcome to FISD and good luck with the approval pics!
  5. Hi Wayne, first of all, welcome aboard from my side as well! To answer your question: if you want to have a costume approved by the 501st, no weapons are needed. For some costumes, you have higher costume reference levels that require weapons and also some necessary greeblies/attachments on them (e. g. the E-11 blaster for Level 2 and 3 approval of the Stormtrooper). Concerning the blaster themselves - you can 3d print (pretty much all of them with the right files), you can get resin casts of some (DC-17 clone sidearms, E-11), or you can buy a toy blaster, sand them, paint them and add some stuff. It's all up to you, really. I personally liked the idea of having some weight in my hand, so went for a resin E-11 build which looks awesome and is certainly heavier than a 3d print, but after some time trooping, it does wear out your arms quite a bit. So for my next costume, (a clone commander), I decided to just go for 3d prints for all his guns. Look at the builds, look at the files, do some test prints, and most importantly, if you have any questions, HIT US! ;) Best wishes from Germany, Freddy
  6. Not sure to be honest I didn't see much from my position (you can only see my helmet on the top right)!
  7. Despite the shucksty way this year is going, I would happily like to request my badge to be updated to 25 troops! Two of the troops were really cool photoshoots as well, so I hope you like them! Also, I can't edit the number in the title, I hope someone with more forum rights can!

  9. Glad to see you made it to the FISD forum, we'll be happy to help wherever we can!
  10. Keep up the good work Troopers, I'm looking forward to the day we hit the magic 1000!
  11. Hey guys, I just updated my troop log from 18 to 21, but now it won't let me change the title to the correct number.. Also I would love to have done more than 300 troops, but I haven't so theres something wrong with my earned trooping badge. Thanks in advance, Freddy

  13. Hey Logan! As the rest here were saying, buying a commission is always an option, and I can totally understand how nervous you are! Personally I'd go the "Blaster first, armor later" route, that's what I did back then. Making the blaster can be just as challenging as you'd want it to be because there are so many modifications you can, but don't have to go for. You'll find your own way, and once you're done with that, there's still plenty of time to build the armor (or buy a commission). However, in the meantime you will have probably "grown out" or, you'll have noticed you don't grow anymore. Either way, just take your time, and if you ever feel comfortable building the armor yourself as well, like many here said before, we're here for you and always happy to help!

  15. Woooooooo, what an awesome birthday present
  16. Hi Jonathan! I'm in the same position as you, currently studying, but also part-time trooping. I was lucky to have an armor maker offer a May 4th deal with 20% off, that and a couple of extra shifts at my minijob helped me to get the funds I needed to buy the armor. Still quite a bunch of money, but I'm getting close to celebrating my 1 Year anniversary in the 501st and I have never regretted anything
  17. Number of troops right now: 13 Looking forward to that badge
