Humperdingle's Troop Diary

Recommended Posts

Very happy to say that my first troop under the UKG 501st (Imperial Scottish Squad), has been completed. I had a great day, pretty much constant photo calls and lots of smiles on the faces of the kids and their families! Thanks to the guys who trooped with me :)

(I'm the guy wearing white :D )

Thanks folks :)

Looks very quiet in those pics, but that was a 5 minute break away from the masses for a quick photo opportunity :D

Awesome! For a second I'd thought I'd see your Shocktrooper. ;)

Would have been good mate, but need to wait on that fella getting cleared :)

Thank you :)

 

Minor malfunctions now sorted - A twisty bicep (elastics attached incorrectly) and a garter system belt strap.

 

Ready for the next one :) which, with any luck, may be in my shock trooper outfit :D

OK, so I might as well use this thread as a photo diary of my troops :)

 

The latest one was at the Stirling Military Show last weekend - A very busy day, with lots of photo calls and plenty going on.

Quite amazingly, I had a lovely message telling me I was featured in the FISD Stormtrooper Hall of Fame :D<br><br>

Hi folks, there has been a bit of a break since the last troop, but here are some pics of my small troop yesterday.

 

Young Adam was turning 16. His mum had reached out to the community to attend her son's special day dressed as Star Wars characters.

So between the Rebel Legion, Edinburgh Sci-fi Con folks and 501st (and a couple of independents), we tried our best to add an authentic bunch to the mix.

Adam suffers from a serious chromosonal disorder, but really loved the party. 

 

Hopefully we did our job on the day :) . Some photos

:

Without a doubt, a stormtrooper of the future:

First outing with the Shock Trooper today, at the Glasgow MCM Comic Con...

Very busy the whole time with lots of photo ops.

 

A group pic of some of the 501st Imperial Scottish Squad:

Won't be long, i'm sure :)

 

The Shocker was really popular for photos (phew!), especially with the younger folks, who probably play more Battlefront. How cool would it be if a future movie includes the character?!

Just got this pic from Adam's birthday party - A future 501st 'trooper, for sure :D
