Hello from San Antonio, Texas

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

Just made an account a few days ago, I am looking at doing a Rogue One TK trooper and figured this was a good place to start. I previously built a rebel Endor trooper that was about 85% done. that being said, I am not a complete noob, but a stormtrooper is a much bigger undertaking than a rebel trooper.

Welcome. I have always thought the R1 TKs looked cool with the tweaks they made to them. I’m looking forward to seeing your finished product.

At some point I would like to, but I have to build the TK first. I have not met any local members yet, but I am interested in going to any events that the local garrison does in the area.

There's occasionally events where we can use a recruit as a handler!! And every month around the first or second Saturday, we've got Armor Parties in the SA Area. Plenty of opportunities to meet some of your local members! Happy to get you more details!! 

 

Hope to Troop with you soon!!

Hi Adam and welcome aboard future Trooper! 

 

Have a read in the “Getting Started-Read this First” section, as there is some really good info in there for new members.

 

Then, have a read in “Costuming and Builds” section to discover other troopers who are building (or have built) the same armor as you! Really good tips, examples, pictures, previously answered questions, and successes here.

 

In addition to looking at all the various build threads, I highly recommend checking out the “Advanced Tactics” section where you can see examples of those who have taken their armor to the next levels of screen accuracy (EIB and Centurion).  I’d recommend that you aim to build to one of the certification levels, as TK’s look their best at these levels. It's really not hard to acquire EIB or Centurion, and it’s best to do during your build rather that after.

 

If, and when, you’re looking for other bits –and-pieces, accessories, boots, blasters, electronics, etc., be sure to check out the “Imperial Commissary/PX” section for items for sale, project runs, and for other stuff that most of the troopers use.

 

Also, make contact with your local Garrison. They’ll help guide you through the process of becoming a member of the 501st, and may have local Armor Parties in the works where you can get hands-on build advice and guidance, not to mention meet members of your future Garrison.

 

So, start a build thread here on FISD; post lots of pictures and questions. We are all here to help you out and to make sure you look your best, and represent the 501st as best as possible.

 

All the best on your TK journey! :dancing-trooper:

Hello and welcome! Not a lot of vendor options for R1TKs, but be sure to take a look in the Getting Started section. We've also had a few well-documented R1 build threads in the last year or so; I'm sure they'll be very helpful to you!
