Sly11[Admin] Posted October 15, 2022 Report Share Posted October 15, 2022 So because it states plastoid maybe there is no reason not to have plates on the boots but guessing they are the same as Phasma is the issue. What may happen is we end up with an incomplete CRL but allows you to troop until more evidence is presented that you are either correct or otherwise. What that means as per the recent Legion discussions is "if" more details come to light and you are FTL (First to Legion) that means you will be required to update your costume as the CRL is updated. This is the angle the LMO team has been pushing this term. basically trooping allowed on an incomplete CRL with high expectation you will modify as required. I think the time frame from any new evidence on a costume is 6 months from the CRL update, or it may become retired. In reality you are making a guess on the shape and style of plates as well as the colour of the boots. I believe Phasmas boots in production were impossible to get to a silver colour and not have it peel off or deteriorate so they simply went the rout of black. See that is an assumption as well, not fact based on any information I have received from the prop and costume department. CRL at worst are based on assumptions, hence the problems with one of the officer costumes from IOC. This is why the LMO's were hamstrung on the boots in the past, and they are hesitantly using the black series as a minor stop gap for the boots only. As to trooping how you want, that is a decision for your garrison GML, as the detachment, we don't have any say in that, so best to be approved locally trooping in anything not in a given CRL. I would much prefer a green lit CRL, we want to get this across the line and fully approved, because then if changes occur down the track to it, your costume is only grandfathered not force upon you to update it in a given period of time. It becomes entirely up to you whether you change it or not and you can continue to troop on regardless. This would have been so much easier if the book clearly stated Black boots and a brief description of the plastoid plates, that is for certain. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
