Hello from North Carolina!

Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Nicolas. Ever since my father showed me Star Wars I've been a fan of Imperial Stormtroopers and always dreamed of wearing the coveted white suit of armor. Two years ago I purchased a Anovos ANH Stunt Helmet and its one of my all time favorite props in my office. I started to look whether or not I should invest in purchasing the rest of the armor. I've done my research, looked at the forums and countless youtube videos. I've decided to pull the trigger and shoot for a Rogue One TK build. I recently purchased 850 Armor Work's R1TK and now I'm just waiting for the BBB Day!

I'm currently in the Military, as a Military Police Officer stationed at Fort Bragg. Looking to joining the Carolina Garrison and getting to know the members in it. I finally have the financial stability to pursue my passion of Star Wars. I'm excited to join the community soon!

Hi Nicholas! Great to have you here. R1 troopers are very cool. I built a crystal patrol backpack a while back so I definitely hope to get some R1 armor someday to complete the package. Looking forward to seeing your build when you get the BBB. Interested to hear your thoughts on the 850 armor works armor when you get a chance to review it. Best of luck!

Hello Nicolas.

 

I have some intel for you aspiring trooper.

1. Great call on taking the plunge.  Looking forward to seeing those BBB pics and your "new birthday" lol

2. Welcome to the Carolina Garrison.  If you haven't already, please go to this website http://www.carolinagarrison.net/ , register, and fill out this membership form, (again if you haven't already) http://www.carolinagarrison.net/?page_id=915

3. I highly recommend you read through some of these https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/193-request-tk-pre-approval/ to understand what others have done during pre-approval.  (This is the step I am on lol).

 

Once you are to that point, perhaps someone more veteran than I can help you.  Yet, that's a good spot to start.

 

I am also in the Carolina Garrison.  Welcome!  I just drove through FBragg on my way back from a Garrison meet up in Atlantic Beach! I was both a blast and an eye opening time.  Looking forward to getting to know you a bit more.  

 

Oh... and welcome!!
