Attention All Troopers, 

 

I have just become aware that on July 31st, we lost Thomas Gardner, TK-5940 (RogueTrooper).  Thomas was the DL that first asked me to be on the Staff, first as Imperial Sentry then as Provost Marshal.  A lot of you may not know him, he wasn't active here for a while, but he was one of my first non Garrison 501st friends.  So he was one of the first to show me how the 501st can bring people together to support one another and promote good will to everyone, a quality that seems to be harder to find at times.  Troopers helping Troopers, always a good thing he promoted.

He left the staff of the FISD to Command the Carolina Garrison, there he dedicated most of his time.  I have missed his presence here and now I'll miss his friendship in life.

 

Rest in Peace my Friend...

Buckets off Troopers.

Greetings Troopers,

 

Business as usual this month.  Our racing shirt run has just come to a close with a record number of sales (nearly 700 as of last count) which will be going to manufacturer soon!  Additionally, the first pass on the TFA Stormtrooper CRL update has been posted and is open for discussion (see the link below from Harbinger).

Greetings Troopers!

 

I was very honored when Sarah asked me to take over XO duties from Joseph - these will be very tough shoes to fill, but I will do my best!

 

In the short term, my main focus will helping finish the FOTK CRL updates as well as continuing my DMBO duties (new merch is on the way soon!).

 

Long term I would like to focus on making these forums easier to use for new and existing members (archiving old and broken threads, potential forum reorganization - nothing drastic! - etcetera).

 

Beyond that - I defer to you, our members. What would you like us to do better? Change? Stop doing? Drop me a PM, I am open to any and all ideas, and I will spend the remainder of this term doing what I can to make them happen.

Greetings, troopers! As always, the Deployment Officers are very pleased to see the steady stream of EIB and Centurion applications. In order to help streamline the process, we've created an updated photo checklist to help applicants ensure they're including all of the necessary photos for their submission. Note that this checklist is meant for Original Trilogy-era troopers Link here

 

Once the CRL updates for the FOTKs are finalized, we'll publish a checklist for those as well. We hope you find it useful, and you can always reach out to any of the DOs if you have any further questions

The FISD is pleased to announce the addition of a new area in the Advanced Tactics forum dedicated to those ready to submit for basic 501st TK approval.

 

This section will allow future Troopers the opportunity to submit photos of their completed build to be reviewed by the Staff, Imperial Attaches and others in preparation for forwarding it to their GML for approval.  Any and all advice/suggestions given will be specific, constructive, helpful and respectful.

 

Please note that this program will NOT take the place of your local GML, as Detachments are not chartered for costume approval and can not override a GMLs decision, but is instead a peer review program designed to help you look your best and offer guidance and positive feedback.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions about your completed armor, weapons (if applicable), accessories, etc. and get accurate information from the experts here at the FISD.. the definitive home of TKs worldwide.

 

For more information on this program, please visit the link here

We understand not everyone can help build multiple sets of armour for their fellow troopers, nor own a 3D printer or have the time and skill set to design and offer free 3D files to the detachment.

There is however one thing we all can do, and that is troop.

Here is your opportunity to stand and be recognised for simply trooping in your TK.

We're rolling out a new award system to encourage and reward our members who take the time to post up their field training exercises and keep a troop log.  As you attend events and post logs, you'll earn these shiny profile badges, here are a few:

 

Keep the troop logs coming folks, not only can you earn the badge but you can show others your favorite troops.

You know we love photos here on the forums.

Simply start (or update!) your troop log, keep the running total in the title, and post (at least!) a date and name for the official 501st event where you wore your TK!

 

Once you've hit a milestone count, go over to the "Field Exercise Awards -- Post your milestones here" thread to request your profile be updated!  Simple, right?

FAQ:
Do my past troops count?
Yes!  You can update your troop log thread with all your past events for credit :)


Is there any costume requirement?
You have to have attended the event in a costume that falls under the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment for credit.  We love pictures from any events with white armor though, so even if you attended an event in another costume with stormtroopers present don't hesitate to show off!

Do I have to include pictures?
Pictures are not required, but are highly encouraged!  Your picture may end up in the Stormtrooper Hall of Fame :)

The FISD Master Armorer program is an optional, detachment only incentive award to recognize individuals who have directly helped another 501st stormtrooper to achieve Expert Infantry status. Some people spend countless hours helping others, and want to reward their results as well as incentivizing new people to help as well.

 

To register a “win” in the program, the assistance must have provided hands-on help trimming, building, and/or fitting of said armor for the person who was awarded Expert Infantry status.

 

Other program notes:

• Helping remotely, giving advice, or taking payment in exchange for help does not account, all work must be voluntary and without expectation of compensation.

• The assistance must be for a period of 30 minutes or more. Spending 15 minutes tweaking someone’s fitting or taking photos does not count.

• "wins" can be retroactive, e.g. if you helped 5 people in 2017 already, those can count as long as they are fully documented.

 

Award Levels

armorer_award_b.png •  5+ “wins”: FISD Armorer Badge

 

armorer_award_s.png • 15+ “wins” FISD Senior Armorer Badge

 

armorer_award_m.png • 25+ “wins” FISD Master Armorer Badge

 

The process

• Person applying for the award will create an application thread to track the help they give.

• For each “win”, they will list the person they helped achieve Expert Infantry status by copying their EI approval thread.

• For each “win”, the person who was helped will validate that this person helped them.

You can find the master award area here https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/182-fisd-master-armorer-program/

United's New Star Wars Plane

United Airlines is cashing in on “Star Wars” movie mania with a swanky new airplane emblazoned with imagery from the iconic space opera. The repainted Boeing 737-800 will take flight in November ahead of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” which hits theaters Dec. 20.

The “space shuttle” won’t ferry passengers to a galaxy far, far away, but it will fly multiple routes spanning Canada, the US, Central America and the Caribbean..

 

In accordance with the theme, the outside of the navy-blue aircraft carries images — from nose to tail fin — of TIE fighters and X-wing fighters, while glowing lightsabers adorn either side of the tail.

The interstellar makeover is not limited to the exterior. Once inside, passengers will be greeted with special plaques and headrests bearing the Resistance and First Order emblems, as well as amenity kits stamped with the “Star Wars” insignia. (Hey, who doesn’t want a star-spangled eye mask for red-eye flights?) Plus, starting in December, passengers will get to board the livery to John Williams’ classic “Star Wars” theme.

 

The theme even extends to the in-flight safety video, which the United account teased on Twitter Friday. The standard spiel is intercut with clips from the “Star Wars” films — including one of C-3PO and R2-D2 — as well as plugs for various exhibits around the world. And in typical “Star Wars” fashion, the last half of the briefing is delivered via hologram, reminiscent of the iconic Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) scene from “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope.”

Retail Embargo Lift

 

For most of the year we are under an embargo from LFL and can not attend retail locations unless prior approval has been given by them. At certain times of the year this embargo is lifted, generally around Blu-Ray / movie releases, May 4th and Force Friday, the recent correspondence from LFL outlines the lift of the embargo:

 

"While there is currently a retail moratorium on character appearances in effect, it is being lifted during the following days:

 

November 14 - 17 -- ok to appear at retailers offering the new game Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

Image result for star wars jedi fallen order

 

Dec 1-31 -- ok to appear at retailers selling SW-related merchandise for the holiday season

Image result for star wars christmas merchandiseImage result for star wars christmas merchandise

 

Dec 19-26 -- ok to appear at theaters showing The Rise of Skywalker

Image result for the rise of skywalker
 

All fans, costumed or otherwise, can participate with venues of their choice within these windows with the restriction that costumed appearances must not be used in the advertising for the event. Although these appearances will be treated like an open invite, we’ll leave it to the fan groups to independently organize around these events as they see fit. LFL will not need to approve or coordinate these. Please note that retail locations should not include restaurants, bars, or venues with no apparent reason to feature Star Wars characters.

In the coming weeks and months, we may send out a list of ‘preferred' retailers from certain regions who would welcome fans to participate at their venues within these event windows, but you are all still welcome to make plans with appropriate retailers or venue hosts of your choice regardless of whether or not they appear on the list.

Thanks everyone, and thanks for all you do


"Please note that retail locations should not include restaurants, bars, or venues with no apparent reason to feature Star Wars characters. If the retail location does not stock Star Wars products you should NOT be attending."


*REMEMBER* Always follow your garrison/squad's guidelines when in comes to organising Disney/LFL promotional troops, only command staff can deal direct with LFL.

Serve proudly, ladies and gentlemen, and as Tim (Dark CMF) says:  "Keep doing what it is that got you here"!

 

Are you an approved TK that spends more time on the boards than the average Trooper?  Do you enjoy using your knowledge to help out future and existing Troopers?  If so, we would like to invite you to join the Imperial Attaché program!

Members of the I.A. team are chosen to help out not only those here on the boards, but on a local level as well.  Our aim is to have at least one in each and every Garrison, Squad and Outpost in the entire legion to be the eyes and ears of the FISD on a local level.

 

A suggested level of EIB or above is preferred, as part of the duties include assisting those aiming for levels 2 and 3, but is not a requirement.  Being active on the boards on a regular basis , welcoming new members and helping out where you can is, though.  

 

Some of the benefits:

1.  Access to exclusive Attaché merch., including patches, etc.

2.  Having the Imperial Attaché title under your name.

3.  Being a part of the team that welcomes new and prospective members of the FISD.

4.  Being the "go-to" person in your Garrison, Squad or Outpost.

5.  Exclusive access to the Attaché HQ area, Imperial Propaganda Machine (newsletter) and merchandise discussions.

 

We are currently in need of Attaches in many units, especially International Garrisons/Squads and Outposts.  For more information on this program, please head here and if you should have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at any time.  (Pretzel)

So what exactly are EIB (Expert Infantry Badge) and Centurion levels?

These programs were designed for those who choose to take their armor above and beyond the minimum requirements for basic 501st Legion approval.  It gives you the chance to show a level of dedication and pride that takes your armor closer to being as "screen accurate" as possible, without as much extra work as you may realize!

 

It also works on giving a better look to the Legion as an entity, and you can bet others will take notice of your hard work.  The 501st has a list of detailed requirements for Basic approval, (level 1), EIB, (level 2) and Centurion, (level 3) which can be found here in the Costume Reference Library, (CRLhttp://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:FISD_CRL

 

Here are a few of the questions people may be wondering about:  

1.  "I am a (tall/short/heavy/thin) Trooper.  Can I still apply?  Of course!  These programs are open and encouraged for all sizes of TKs, as long as the costume is correct and meets the guidelines.  There are many specific build tutorials to every option, as well as a vast network of fellow TKs on the FISD to help you out and offer suggestions.

  

2.  "How much extra will I have to pay for extra items"?  The cost is actually quite reasonable, considering the few extra supplies you will need, which are listed in the requirements area.  While it may run you a little more to implement these additions to your costume, they will go a long way to improving accuracy.  All needed items can be found for sale on this thread: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/16-ongoing-sales-project-orders/

 

While blasters are not required for basic approval, for EIB and Centurion levels they are, and may need upgrades (also listed in the CRL).

 

3.  "I haven't even got my kit yet, is it too early to start planning"?  Actually, aiming for Centurion is easiest to do right out of the box.

4.  "I have my basic TK approval, can I still get in these programs"?  In a word... absolutely!  

  

5.  "Are there any "perks" to this extra work and cost"?  Besides knowing that you have a great looking set of armor, the 501st and FISD believes you should be deservedly recognized for your achievement(s), and allows you to wear the appropriate embroidered "rocker" badge of rank (available for a very minimum cost) on your shirt, helmet bag, etc., as well as rank decals to put on your armor bin.  You will also have access to select "challenge coin" runs, receive (free) a cool certificate for your new rank, and have your title posted below your name in your FISD signature.  Plus, once you reach these levels, you will have the extra knowledge to help out those who are looking to apply as well.

  

6.  "Is it hard to apply, and what happens then"?   After basic approval, all you do is make sure your armor is up to the standards set forth in the CRL, post a thread with the required photos in the appropriate area (see below), and wait a bit for the D.O.s (Deployment Officers) to address it. (Hint:  Studying other people's threads before you submit can be a GREAT help).  These are also listed on the main page of the FISD site.  While waiting for approval, you will get some comments from others who will offer suggestions and constructive advice to help you out.  If you should need any changes, the DOs will let you know, so you can adjust accordingly.  Don't be dismayed if you do need changes... it's all for your benefit!   After you are approved for EIB, then you can submit for Centurion.

As many of you are aware, the FISD is currently in our March to 1000 program.  Our goal is to reach the one thousand mark of Troopers who have earned their Expert Infantry Badge, and although we are well on our way to this goal and have just reached the 947 mark!  The amount of approved submissions is increasing thanks to the dedication of those willing to go the "extra mile" toward screen accuracy.  

 

Here is a brief description of EIB as written by Paul (Daetrin), our founder:

 

"Expert Infantryman status is not required for members of this detachment. It should be viewed as an optional set of requirements for those who wish to take the accuracy of their costumes to the next level, and be recognized accordingly. We're a costuming club - think of it as an award for costuming excellence and you get the picture.

 

The requirements will not replace or supersede 501st standards, but only serve as an inspiration for the level of accuracy that can be achieved. The standards are meant to be high but achievable..."

 

Besides the added pride you will have in your armor, those reaching this level can purchase exclusive EIB gear (patches, decals, coins etc.) and get a free certificate for your accomplishment.  If you are interested or would like more information about the program head here that will help.  You can also contact myself  "Pretzel" or any Imperial Attaché, and we will be more than happy to assist you!

I just sent the coin art to Endor Finders yesterday, in fact - so look out for a new coin in a few weeks (probably December or January).
