Wow, Philip, just WOW!  One of the best looking EI submissions I've seen in quite a while, sir.  I know you provided a link to those dynamite photos, but we are asking that you post them on this thread, (I suggest using imgur or the like), which would help us immensely as well as speed up your approval quite a bit.  Besides, you need to show off that set of armor!

Great work trooper, a few other images the DO's like are:


* Front and both sides of the knee sniper plate

* Thigh ammo strip rivets outside and inside 

* D ring on rear of blaster 

* Closeup of your ab buttons 

* Closeup of your hand plates and gloves

* Closeup of boots


Good luck with approval, although I doubt you need any ;)

Thank you all for your feedback thus far. I'm busy preparing for two troops this afternoon; I'll need to clean up my kit and set the lights / backdrop back up - but I'll get these photographs taken and posted for you as soon as I can. Have a great weekend everyone. Cheers.

Hi Philip, and thank you for your Expert Infantry application!  In the following review I will be going over a few items pertaining to your current submission, as well as those that will be required for Centurion level should you choose to apply.  (With this awesome set of RS armor you should ace it)!


CRL and EIB Application Requirements:

All required submission photos have been posted and I am very pleased to announce your armor displays all the necessary elements to qualify for ANH Stunt Expert Infantry. On behalf of myself and the entire D.O.Team, Congratulations!   :salute:


Other-Armor Fit/Assembly:

In this section we review observations made by your fellow troopers and ourselves. Some observations may lead to suggestions to improve the overall look of your armor.  Note that we consider both text (CRL) and pictures (screen caps/reference images) when reviewing submissions.


Although (like I mentioned) that is a spectacular set of armor you are rocking, there are a few small areas that will make it look even better!


The space between the tops of the thighs in the rear and the posterior plate could be evened out more.  The gap you have on either side is fine, but they should match.  I suggest lowering the one on your left for more comfort when walking, but the choice is yours.  This is a simple strapping issue, and should be an easy fix!


                                                                                                                                          Reference images

The cap rivets on the thigh ammo pack could definitely use another coat of paint (or two) to make them appear less gray looking and stand out.  Also please note that the placement is pretty far off and they should not be up in the far corners.


                                                                                                                                           Reference images

Centurion Requirements

In this section we prepare you for Centurion. More photos may be requested in the future that allow us to make better decisions on possible adjustments. If there are any areas of concern they will be discussed here.

Because Centurion photos show much more detail than EIB, items to pertaining to Centurion might be seen there and not here. We try to point out all that we can from what is seen, but the final accuracy is the responsibility of the trooper.


You are almost there, Philip.  As noted above, we must consider not just the CRLs, but screen caps and other references when approving at higher levels.


The ab/kidney gap on your left side is spot-on, but although it is SUPER close, the one on your right needs to be closed up.  Considering it only needs to come in just a bit this will be a fast fix with some strapping adjustments.

                                                                                                                                    Reference images

Adding another (tighter) strap may be all you need.



Although it's pretty close, for a much better screen accurate appearance the top of the ABS belt should sit just under (or slightly overlap) the bottom button of the large ab button panel.  Raising it half an inch will make a big difference!


                                                                                                                                                      Reference images

Last up, the gaps between the lower ridges of your right rear thigh will need to be less noticeable.  In a perfect world this should be done with ABS paste, but (more easily) can be achieved by gluing small pieces of ABS or white plastic behind them, similar to what was done on the front of the right thigh.  Yeah, it seems insignificant, but it's those small details that will set you apart as a Centurion!  (If you need ABS scraps for this, just PM me and I will get them to you, no charge).

                                                                                                                     Reference images

                     BEY3WIy.jpg?1  AdXn09W.jpg?1  E5L7eXO.jpg?1


And that's it, brother.  You are going certainly going to make the GA. Garrison and the Empire VERY proud as it's newest EI, and I look forward to seeing that Centurion submission soon!  :salute:


Side Note If  when you submit for Centurion, we ask that you use imgur or another photo hosting site and not Photobucket, as the the logo (as seen below) obscures many of those awesome details.  Thanks!!
