On 24th of April 2020, Bill Early Jr (TX-2062) passed away. Bill’s tour with the 501st Legion began in 2007 with the Midsouth Garrison. Later he found a home with the Bluegrass Garrison 501st and the Derby City Squad. Bill was known to coordinate many charity events during his career and the JDRF One Walk supporting juvenile diabetes research was a personal favorite.

Bill was an award winning model master and a well-respected fixture of the model-master’s mecha; WonderFest. Bill is survived by his loving wife Barb (TS-52162), daughter Denise (TS-8760), son William, and step-son Lee.

 

Our condolences go out to his family and friends.

On the 24th of April 2020, Santiago Giro (TK-25953) passed away. Santiago was 501st Legion Garrison Argentina’s first Incinerator Trooper, a source of pride for both garrison and costumer alike. Santiago was well liked and trusted within his community. When he was not helping others, or improving his costumes, Santiago could be found trooping. As often as possible.

 

Our condolences go out to his family and friends.

Greetings fellow troopers

 

I hope this newsletter finds you all safe and well.

 

Now that we are 3 months, or our first quarter in to the term, lets do a Detachment plan health check.

As per our proposals in the election we are working towards making good on as many of those promises as possible considering the current global situation and its impact on some of the staff and our members

 

Merch:

 

The FISD 5" shield patch interest thread has closed and we have our initial quotes. Once we do a little more due diligence the approval will be sent off to legion and LFL and we wait for the sign off.  Soon enough we will have a sales thread open and all systems go.

Work is also underway designing our special piece for us to celebrate 1000 Expert infantry approved. That number is fast approaching and we are excited.

 

New Visual guides for Level 2 EI, and Lvl 3 Centurion:

 

First off, allow me to congratulate Jeff, TK-50297 (wingnut65) for the amazing work he has put in, not only updating the existing visual guides for ANH Stunt and Hero, but also creating new guides for ESB, RotJ and the HWT costumes. But wait, there's more.... he is also working on even more of these visual guides for our other costumes, there is no stopping this guy.

These guides don't take 5 minutes to build either, Jeff has put in some serious overtime referencing CRL's and some of the specifics the DO's look at when doing approvals. Yep his OCD focus is why we love his work.

Thank you Jeff on behalf of the entire detachment for making life easier for all that dream of building their armour to higher levels.

 

DL's Blog:

 

This was kicked off in late Feb, giving some transparency of what your command staff are discussing and planning behind the scenes. It also allows a platform for minor updates between news letters. These will continue throughout the year.

 

Forum clean up and archiving:

 

This is as you can probably imagine, a rather large task. There are years of threads images and topics to sort through. Some of that information is now completely out of date and in some cases no longer relevant. For the record, we aren't deleting anything, it all gets moved to the archive section and kept for historical reference.

The aim is to de-clutter various forums and make the effort to find information a little less daunting.

Not much has been moved yet, but it has started and we will keep you updated on what we do move to archive.

 

Other Forum maintenance:                             OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

 

As I have mentioned in the DL's blog recently, there will be some forum maintenance taking place in the near future. We will be relocating some sections (not archiving or deleting), and this first phase of this has begun.

 

With this brings the official announcement of the newest dedicated section to our forums

 

It gives me great pleasure to officially open the   First Order Battle Group!

What is the First Order battle Group why have we created it.

 

FOBG Header.png

This is your one stop home for all things related to the First Order Stormtroopers.

What you will find within these corridors:

CRL's, Build threads, vendors and accessory lists, Howto guides, plenty of recommendations & valuable resources to get you up and running ready for battle.

This section has been designed to keep it simple when researching your first build or adding to an existing costume.

No more digging through countless pages of OT TK threads to find all your First order needs.

 

This new section will continue to grow as we relocate FO specific information into this truly dedicated section of our forms.

Our First order members and newbies are a very important part of our community and as promised in my Election speech, we are moving froward in giving them an easier path to costuming excellence, a much more visible and dedicated presence, and as the section statement expresses, no more digging through tons of OT stuff you don't need, to find what you do.

I really hope this does make life easier for many from this day forward.

If you wish to view the First order section as its own forum, simply click or double click on the gray bar at the top in the forums section and it opens with the above graphic and header info. Capture.JPG

 

We have plenty of other plans to start on as the year progresses, and we will continue to re-assess these each quarter as life hopefully returns to more normality for everyone in the near future. Stay tuned for more forum changes and upgrades down the track.

  ATTENTION: Future Expert Infantry level TKs!

 

Due to Rebel propaganda, we as Stormtroopers are (unfairly) notorious for our "inability" to hit a target.  BUT, one we will definitely be hitting a bullseye on this year is the 1000 mark for those earning the Expert Infantry badge!  As you may have read, we have ONLY 35 spots left to be a part of this milestone in FISD history, and you can be a part of it!

We as D.O.s as well as the rest of the Staff and Detachment are here to help you do what it takes not only to get that badge under your name, but to have a much better looking set of armor!  

 

                                        DON"T Forget!  We have a special one-of-a-kind merch item that will accompany this milestone!

 

One thing we ask is that you take a look at the following links before submitting, and if you have questions, just ask.  If you have any specific concerns, always feel free to PM either of us... we are here for you!   @justjoseph63  @shashachu.

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

Don't forget to create a troop log here on FISD and get awarded for your adventures

The list of accomplished troopers keeps growing, so get on board and register your troops today.

 

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/

As many of you may have seen, there has been a surge in videos of people and celebrities reading storybooks aloud and sharing the videos on social media during this time of isolation.

 

For the #BadGuysStayingHome we're going to be launching the #501stStorytime playlist on our official YouTube channel and we need submissions!

 

Basic guidelines:
Stories read need to be copyrighted Disney/LFL material (i.e. Star Wars kids books or short stories)
Reader should introduce themselves with their club ID, and not their character name only. I.e. "This is TK-123 from The 501st Legion's ABC Garrison". Not "I'm a Stormtrooper from Star Wars".
Background in video should be neutral or Star Wars-centric. Doesn't need to be totally blank/neutral, but just be mindful of what shows up on the screen.
Videos should be shot horizontally and saved in mp4 format
Audio/video does not need to be in English. Subtitles would be a plus for the hearing impaired and English-only speakers.
Length should be short-ish (keep child attention span limits in mind). Maybe less than 10 minutes? Room for adjustment as this program evolves.

 

How to submit your video:
Send an email to video@501st.com (being set-up by webteam momentarily) with:
A link to your google drive, dropbox or similar large file online storage place (i.e. do not email the video file itself)
Name, TKID
Garrison/Outpost
Book title and author

 

Thank you and stay safe

Are you new to the FISD and wondering what the heck all those abbreviations and strange sounding terms mean?  To help you @justjoseph63 has started a list of the most commonly used ones that will give you some insight.  If you have ANY questions about a particular term that is not listed or suggestions for new ones please contact Joseph. You can find the list here:

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)

For those of you on the Imperial Attaché staff, the official I.A. patches are available 

Here are the details..  PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

Patches will be limited to TWO per person, and will only be sold to those who are currently serving FISD Imperial Attaches.

 

These patches have been graciously DONATED to the FISD, so all you will need to do is cover the cost of shipping and PP fees, which will be $1.00 each for those in the U.S. and P.R. and $1.50 each for those outside the U.S. What a deal!

Thank you Joseph @justjoseph63for looking after these.

Attaché Ambassador 

 

Hello All,

Well it’s been a crazy year so far and we’ve seen some changes all around the world. Hope everyone is doing well, we are all here if anyone ever needs to get anything out, times are tough we all need someone to talk to.

As for the FISD community.....

First off we’ve seen Sebastiano (TK37015) become the first new attaché of 2020. Sebastiano Reached out to me and requested to step up into the attaché roll. Sebastiano will be a great help to the new troopers in his home town of Sicily Italy.

Then we saw Mario (TKSpartan) receive the Attaché Achievement Award. Mario has been very helpful in giving advice quickly when questions are asked. He’s gone the extra mile to help people out online and it’s been noticed.

Lastly but most recently. Mark (TK-42134) was also given the Attaché Achievement Award due to his exceptional work with last years shirt run. Between paperwork and running to the post office these merch runs Can be time consuming. Mark put a lot of time and effort into it and the run ended well. We appreciate him stepping up to such a big task for the community.

Speaking of stepping up to merch runs you may have noticed the upcoming shield patch run. Just want to say thank you to Anthony (Redforce) for volunteering to take this run on. There is no doubt he’ll do a great job and it’s appreciated.

Myself and the command staff are truly thankful for everything everyone does to help this community. We see Attaches stepping up, people aspiring to be Attaches, and even new people passing on information they’ve recently learned. This community just keeps on giving.

Be well and safe,

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.

     ONLY 35 SPOTS LEFT, TROOPERS, SO TIME TO STEP-UP!   

 

Now that many of us are unfortunately stuck at home and boredom is beginning to take it's toll, it's time to wipe the dust off of that armor bin and become a part of FISD history!  

 

Instead of binge-watching re-runs, we are suggesting that you put the D.O. Staff to the test and spend some time on that white armor you miss wearing so much by applying for your Expert Infantry badge!

 

                                                                                      l5Uwj5w.png?2

 

As you may be aware, we are aiming to have #1000 approved by the end of the year.  We only have 35 to go, so in order to reach that goal we are asking that you read over the CRLs for your particular armor, (this thread will help) make any necessary adjustments and post up your submission!

Photo Checklist-  Link here

Apply Here

 

Questions:  

1.  Not sure if I have what it takes to get my EI badge-  You don't know until you try, and you have not only the D.O. staff but an entire Detachment to help!

2.  I need some repairs/fixes first-  This is why we are here!  We honestly want you to succeed and are here to help in any way we can.

3.  I am happy with the way my armor looks, so why bother?-  It not only makes you look more screen accurate, it instills a sense of pride and "esprit de corps"!

4.  What if I don't make it No worries, we will provide detailed suggestions on how to reach your goal!

 

Benefits:

 Bragging rights for being one of the "Original 1000"

2.  You get a cool badge under your name here on the FISD. (Street cred).

3.  Access to EI rocker badges (coming soon) to go above your FISD patch (also coming soon)!

4.  Access to coin runs for EI awardees only.

5.  Certificate for your accomplishment.

6.  You'll be one step closer to Centurion!

7.  Most importantly, having a more screen accurate looking set of armor!!

 

Know that the entire Staff and those who have reached Levels 2 (and 3) are here to help in any way we can, and that you are more than welcome (and encouraged) to ask any and all questions you may have here on this thread, or contact myself or Sha Sha.

There will be a very special piece of merch available for when we hit the 1000. Something to celebrate this auspicious occasion. It is already in the design phase, and will honor the old and the new. It will be a one off run as we only get to celebrate this milestone once, and I know you wont want to miss out.

 

You can do it, Troopers.  Let's turn this "anno horribilis" into a banner year for the FISD!

 

35 and counting

Greetings Troopers.

 

The Fire Team program is completely optional, and is intended to help form a common identity and spirit of camaraderie among 501st Legion stormtroopers in the same geographic area/garrison that troop together.

Fire Teams are not officially recognized by the 501st Legion nor the FISD, although they will be able to access a Fire Team sub-forum on the detachment website. Because Fire Teams are unofficial groups, they cannot have any 501st or FISD markings, including 501st Legion, 501st, Legion logos, Vader's Fist etc. on their branding or logos. However, Teams will be allowed to use any unique markings at informal events provided they follow these guidelines.

Guidelines

  • No 501st or FISD markings. Period.
  • Any active Legion member with a valid stormtrooper costume in the specified geographic area can join.
  • The Team can create a name, logo, backstory, etc. for itself (names usually contain Fire Team, though this isn't required).
  • A list of each Team (with their specific "Teams Name") with a current list their members will be kept in the Fire Team sub-forum on the Detachment website.
  • A Team member must troop at least twice per year to maintain status as a member. Two or more Team members must troop together once per year to keep the group active.

Merchandising

  • Again, no 501st or FISD markings.
  • Merchandising will only be limited by the imagination of the Fire Team.
  • Any merchandising should be submitted to the detachment, or through proper Legion channels.
  • A master list of all Fire Team merchandise (with photos) will be posted in the Fire Team sub-forum.

If any of these guidelines are violated, the group will be disbanded.

 

Here is a link to the Fire Team areahttp://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/130-fire-team-area/   501st membership is needed to view this area.

 

This is a great program that is strictly just for fun and it also allows fellow TK's get to know each other better.  I would love to help any Garrison/area get a Fire Team started, just let me know what I can do to help.

 

If you would like to register a Fire Team here is the link

 

In other business, just a reminder, if you have an addition, removal or any other change in you Fire Team's status, send me a PM and I'll get you all squared away.
