  1. So Here is the e-11 build so far. I will add some weathering tomorrow. 

     

     

    I would have gotten more done but I actually went to my first troop today. I worked the booth for Carolina Garrison at aspiecon. Was a aspbergers and autism awareness convention.  Got to officially meet quite a few great people in the garrison and had a lot of fun. 


  2. Haven’t gotten hard parts in yet. Starting now since I’ve had my first parts come in today. 

     

    Ordered a WTF kit On March 4

     

    Ordered a geeky pinks neck seal last night March 21

     

    my boots came in today. They are funtasms just to go ahead and have a pair for basic approval if I don’t get my other boots before submission but will be ordering imperial boots for centurion when they open again 

     

    already have a hasboro blaster with a doopy doos kit on the way. 

     

    Ordered basic black althetic gear gear for the undersuit from amazon should be here this weekend.

    Sorry for the loss of your friend. He would probably be very happy knowing that you are doing something that he would have enjoyed,  in honor of him. Like other troopers have mentioned earlier, your are in good hands here, and willing to help when you are ready.

    I appreciate it. I’m playing the waiting game right now. I have taken some advice from the local garrison and started working on the extras while I wait on my suit. Ordered a droopy doos kit for my hasboro blaster, a neck seal from geeky pinks gaskets, and picked up compression gear for the under suit today.

     

    I am having trouble locating some boots though. I was referred to TK boots and I got an email from them this morning stating that they were shutting down. I also wouldn’t know where to start looking for a holster. I do leatherwork as a hobby and I guarantee I could make one but am unsure of dimensions and types of leather/rivets etc used.

    A very good friend of mine passed away almost 2 years ago. His name was Ward Godwin and was working to become a part of Talon Clan for the mando mercs.  I didn’t know a lot about this group at the time but he had been spending a great deal of time with these guys and I felt like they deserved to hear the news.

     

    They thanked me for letting them know and that was that. Until 4 of them showed up to stand at attention at his casket during his funeral. That’s what made me wonder exactly what it was that they did and what they stood for.  After speaking with a couple of the members, I found out about their charitable contributions and all of the amazing things that they did.

         

    They informed me that they were a part of several groups that they were involved with, the 501st being the largest and that they sometimes overlap. The costuming seemed a little restricted to me in the mercs ( for obvious reasons) but I did like how the stormtroopers looked. 

     

    Two weeks after Wards funeral, I ordered a TK suit.  Knowing that they sometimes take a while, I waited. And waited. And waited.  To the point to where I completely forgot about the suit. And then this time of year rolled around to where ward was on my mind. 

     

    A month ago ago I called the supplier to see what was up with no real success, and after some back and forth I got a refund. I am now currently waiting on another suit from WTF and am extremely excited to be a part of this amazing community that my friend was a part of.  Because of him I wouldn’t have known what it is that this group does. And I will always be grateful for that.  

     

    So this is Derek saying hello and thank you guys for being an inspiration in so many ways. 

    Wards wife gave me permission to share a photo of her and their kids with the mando mercs/Carolina garrison members who stood by his casket. Today is the 2 year anniversary of the funeral.

    Hey Derek, 

    If you haven't done so already, I recommend signing up on your garrison boards. You can ask this question on their boards. Our Garrison in PA allows cadets/new members to come and "squire or be a handler" at our events. :)

    Yes I am already registered for Carolina garrison. (Gastonia NC here) But didn’t get a straight forward answer from the event coordinator. I have also posted in the garrison forums and have not received any replies.
