    Me, when I have to troop with an E-11
  3. [72] 15.06.2024 -- Charity-Event „Team-Doppelpass“ Nortorf On one of my very few free days in June I had the pleasure of supporting the "Team Doppelpass" event in Nortorf. It's a soccer tournament with local clubs, where they raise money for every goal shot, as well as taking separate donations -- this year of up to 10000€. We were there simply for the fun of it. People could take pictures with us, or simply enjoy our presence. The real heroes of the event were all the players on the field, playing some spectacular games and raising the money. It was a really rainy and pretty chilly day. I had been sick the week before and trooping that day set me back in my recovery, but I'm certain that it was well worth it. One of our troopers had his 100th troop, for two others it was their very first. Definitely a special day. And not only that, but the event raised a total of 43,114.30€ for children's cancer, which is incredible! [73] 22.06.2024 -- Supporting the Family Support of our military at the Kieler Woche, Kiel For those of you who don't know, the Kieler Woche is the world's largest sailing event. It's a week-long street festival all over the city with vendors, games, more vendors and of course some sailing. Honestly, trooping that event had been one of my biggest goals since I first joined and this year I had the honor of making that dream come to life! Our non-501st (but still Trooper!) contact at the military managed to snag this event for us, by promising that we'd support the family support center of our military that day. In return for posing for pictures with kids and adults, we'd show presence in the heart of the military area of the Kieler Woche. For us that meant walking around, visiting tanks, planes and ships, sometimes getting an exclusive behind the scenes tour, talking to the visitors to encourage them to take a look at what the family support does, and taking lots and lots of pictures. People there loved us! We barely could move most of the time. Since it was a rather hot day, we spent every free minute in the shade and drinking water or iced tea that we were supplied with. And not only that, we got everything from classic military food to ice cream -- and a small birthday present for me since it had been my 21st birthday a day prior. Everyone had lots of fun and I'd gladly troop this event again next year! TK-66744 signing off
  4. I'm a huuuge fan of David Tennant and his work! Getting to meet him, see him, talk with him was just an extraordinary experience and worth every cent paid. I think that's one of the best parts of being in such a large Garrison: we got lots of troopers and fantastic events [70] 25.05.2024 -- Comic Park Erfurt, Day 1 It was a long, long travel there, but everyone I'd met told me of the great location and all the fun they'd had last year, so I had to see this event for myself. And the location didn't disappoint! A beautiful park stretching over kilometers, bustling with visitors and cosplayers in hot summer weather. I started off the event by getting to meet and escort the city's mayor -- crazy who you'll meet simply because you thought running around in plastic sounds fun -- alongside a few of my fellow troopers. We had our own Star Wars area together with a handful of other clubs. One of which had organized a bounty hunt for kids, where they had to find several characters. Alas, their TK wasn't actually a TK that day, so I agreed to jump in. Since I was the only OTTK that day (we had one FOTK as well), I didn't want to disappoint the kids who were looking for a Stormtrooper. Still, I tried to get the most out of that day, without collapsing of a heatstroke, and spent lots of it with CC-75367 and a new recruit who was wearing his CT for the first time. We explored the park, stumbled across a fantastic playground, and lazed around in the sun. On the playground I did manage to get a new crack in my armor, but with a quick repair I was ready to face the second day. [71] 26.05.2024 -- Comic Park Erfurt, Day 2 With not enough sleep and even higher temperatures we started into the second day of fun and shenanigans. This time I refused to participate in the bounty hunt, and with one other Stormtrooper from my Garrison we were a total of three Stormtroopers that day -- if only for a short while. Can't say I blame them for not wanting to spend too much time in armor considering the temperatures and instead changing into a Narkina 5 prisoner and club clothing respectively. My fellow TK -- now my escaped prisoner -- had taken a skateboard with him to the event and I joined forces with a few other young people to enjoy some silliness. All of us were pushed along on that skateboard in full armor, desperately trying to not fall over. Video link. Once we'd exhausted ourselves there, we moved on to taking silly pictures. Piggyback rides, climbing onto trees, and silly faces. I believe I ended up with roughly 400 pictures from that alone. Something I didn't expect out of this troop was anything to do with David Tennant, but I found out that there was a Good Omens Fanmeet happening next to our Star Wars area. Of course I couldn't miss out on that one, so I headed over there. I met quite a few of the people from the Doctor Who/Good Omens convention earlier this month and got a bracelet and a rubber duck out of it. Definitely a highlight of the weekend!

  5. Hello Troopers! This month we are looking for your most colourful pictures to be shared on our Socials! Of course I’m talking about celebrating Pride Month in June. Please send me pictures of you and your fellow troopers marching in parades, dressed in colourful flags or otherwise showing your support for the LGBTQ+ community. You can either submit the pictures here in the forum thread, in a DM to me, or by sending me an email at 501tk66744 @gmail.com (remove the space before the @). Don’t forget to share your TK-ID(s), Garrison name and – if applicable – the photographer’s credit. You can submit your pictures until the 29th of May. I’m looking forward to seeing your pictures!
  6. Busy weekend! [67] 03.05.2024 -- Star Wars in Concert A New Hope in Hamburg Starting off strong with Star Wars in Concert on Friday! Unluckily, right next door was a soccer match, so we arrived with 1.5 hours delay and having to expect violence later on. Still, everyone had lots of fun, I got to troop another Chaos Division troop, met my fellow Squad Attaché and posed for lots and lots of pictures with the visitors. We got to watch the movie as a compensation for showing up, so that was fun too! We had to cut down a bit on our program and most of us spent the second half of the Concert in our changing room, fooling around, having fun, and welcoming a new member who had his first troop that day. At the very end we went out in front of the stage to lots of applause. Definitely a good showing from our squad, even if we were all really tired afterwards, arriving back home at about 02:00 am. Lucky for us the soccer match had ended peacefully as well, so we had a calmer evening than expected after the early chaos. [68] 04.05.2024 -- Planetarium Wolfsburg For Star Wars Day the planetarium offers a special Star Wars showing. The Garrison was invited by a local costume club to bolster their numbers a bit. All six of us had been at the concert the night before, but we weren't tired enough to not troop. I myself mostly had fun with the stuff they had in that area, such as this gigantic bench. To my surprise, sitting on that one was super comfortable and it was really easy to get on and off. Who would've thought? The local police showed up for a couple pictures and since it was almost tradition by now, I simply had to take a couple pictures in their car. Always a really fun experience and everyone just loves it! To end the troop we guarded the planetarium as the visitors got to enter. A few visitors got really scared when they spotted us. Aside from the bench, those reactions might have been my favorite part of the troop. [69] 04.05.2024 -- Episode I in Cinema Wolfenbüttel No pictures from this troop, oops! For the re-release of Episode I the local club from the previous troop also had an appearance at a cinema. We entertained people on the street, as well as the cinema's visitors, before getting to watch the movie ourselves. For me it was the first time ever watching Episode I in cinema and it was so, so good! Way better than on a TV screen! Also, this was my first ever time officially trooping two events on one day. Kinda crazy to consider And although I had another event on Sunday it was a Doctor Who convention -- I met David Tennant! He liked my outfit! -- so I will spare you the details. This is, after all, my Stormtrooper troop log. Just know that it was the best convention I've ever been to and that my TK just got a contender for "favorite costume"
  7. Congratulations! That sounds like a fantastic start already!
  8. Right? It's always a great opportunity to catch up and do some silly stuff! [66] 28.03.2024 -- Retirement at the Airbase Jagel A long time member of our local airbase got discharged and sent into retirement. Since he's been at the airbase for decades and was well loved, it was decided to celebrate the occasion in a special way. He's a huge fan of StarWars and so they invited us to visit him on his last day at the base. But before that, us troopers got shown around the base. We got an in-depth explanation of the Tornado aircraft -- it's design, variants, roles and history -- and were even allowed to sit in one for a quick picture and to ask some detailed questions. Truly a crazy feeling to be sitting on the pilot seat, knowing just what the aircraft is capable of. The mechanics were just as excited to show us everything as we were to see everything, so we almost ended up missing lunch. Never let it be said that they aren't great hosts! The food was good, even if we had to rush. Then it was time for us to show up during the ceremony. We observed during the whole ceremony, listened to the speeches, saluted the retiring member one last time -- and were, of course, available for pictures with both him and everyone else who was interested. After everyone had gotten their pictures and most people had left, they had handed over the check of money they had collected for charity for this event. One of my shortest troops yet, but nevertheless a really interesting one! TK-66744 signing off

  11. Whoever says that you're done with working on your armor once you get approved is lying. So here I am, once again! Aside from the usual clean-up and crack repair, it was time for something more unusual: Bleaching my armor Now, if you've taken a look at my troop log, you might have noticed that every since June last year my armor color hasn't quite matched up with that of my fellow troopers. Long, long hours of trooping in the sun can do that to ABS. After a bit of looking around and researching, I stumbled across the fact that you can bleach your armor. Here is a good tutorial. First things first, I got rid of everything that didn't need bleaching or that might make the process more difficult. Just look at this part of my helmet: you can clearly spot which parts were covered by the ears and which had some sun exposure! By taking my helmet apart I could more or less guarantee equal sun exposure during the bleaching process, as well as making sure the screws, the lens foil or the rubber parts wouldn't get bleached by accident. The paint however won't be impacted by the bleach. Similarly, I made sure to remove padding and strapping wherever possible. For bleaching the armor I used this hair bleach. I put a dollop of it onto the cardboard and painted a layer onto my armor. I then wrapped the armor in clingfoil and sealed it as airtight as possible with see-through tape. Remember to only use bleach whilst wearing skin protection and being in a ventilated area -- I forgot the gloves at first and my skin got really itchy and a bit spotty. Once I had everything wrapped up, I put the armor parts out in the sun, making sure to give them the most sun exposure they could get. Originally, I had planned on leaving them there the entire afternoon whilst I relaxed inside, but it was a rather windy day and I instead spent the next two hours playing catch with it in the garden. After those two hours I decided enough was enough -- at this point it was fairly likely that all the tumbling around would mean risking cracks and there were storm clouds coming up anyways -- so I carefully removed the cling wrap and wiped off all the bleach with water. Since I was already dedicating that day towards armor maintenance, I decided to give everything a good clean up as well, getting rid of some of the scuffs with a magic eraser. At a first glance, my armor certainly appears to be less yellow than before. I didn't get around to bleaching the whole armor, but only the more yellowed parts -- shoulders, helmet... anything with sun exposure from the top -- so we'll have to see just how well I will fit in with my fellow TKs at the next troop.
