    No, everythings works fine here.. But it's really strange for sure...
  2. New Users, introduce yourselves here!

    Welcome to the MEPD Daniel!! And what an excellent choice. Looking forward to your build
  3. New guy with a few questions

    You're welcome!
  4. Battlefront II Heavy Trooper

    It would be awesome to have you on board as we really, reaaaaaaaally need a CRL model
  5. Troops, I have been pointed out to this discussion on the FISD by it's Detachment Leader. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/42081-the-official-2017-what-is-a-heavy-weapons-trooper-thread/?page=2&tab=comments#comment-591388 I personally would like to have this specific trooper added to the MEPD as there are lots of similarities with the Special Edition Sandtrooper, SE TD. Plus the fact that we already have the BattlefrontMagmatrooper. So, I would like to use this topic to discuss the armor.
  6. New guy with a few questions

    You don't have to check this with your GML. The CRL clearly states the following: The standard configuration calls for a minimum of two pouches: one pouch on the left shoulder and one on the right hip. A third worn on the opposite hip is allowed. This is not free for interpretation. When you decide to go for SWAT you'll need to comply to the basic rules/ standards first for approval.
  7. *DONE* TD 93905 Requesting Deployment

    There it is!! Congratulations bro'!
  8. Couldn't have said it better. And you're so close now, looking forward into welcoming you to the SWAT team!
  9. First build - Weathering my Sandtrooper

    Weathering is always personal but we prefer the less is more look and also the natural look. The way dirt accumulates in a natural way. I would also say tone down the yellow a bit and be carefull with acryllic paints. Personally I would advise colors from the woodland scenic range. Good luck and remember, this is only advice from our side. If you are happy with this you should go for it.
  10. Steve Sansweet is now a 501st Member

    I've recently visited the exposition called StarWars Identities which supposedly has original props. My advice would be..don't go if it turns up in your neighbourhood somewhere. It's a total waste of money. The TK that was on display there had shoes with wooden soles, the Tusken raider was iffy as were more of the props and costumes. Why I am posting this here is that there was one TK helmet that had "Steve" written inside of it, never saw that before but it looked like the "Dave M" helmet, so I immediatley thought if he has "sponsored" this exhibition with some items out of hiws own collection. If so he still needs to upgrade his collection but maybe I'm just being a spoiled little sandtrooper here...
  11. I think that he means that you should replace the screws/ bolts into ones that are flat instead of the ones you have now. It also looks like that your backpiece is overlapping the back kidney plate. But a clear picture without your backpack should clarify that as the overlap method isn't allowed. But you'r definitely on the right track here!
  12. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    Aren't these available anymore then??! @Gordonator, if these aren't available anymore we should definitely do a new run of these!!
  13. *DONE* TD 93905 Requesting Deployment

    Now that I've seen this picture, and I thought I had done my research both should be approvable
  14. *DONE* TD 93905 Requesting Deployment

    Getting you deployed should really be a walk in the park. You've done some excellent work on the armor! The only things I can come up with is that your pouches could use a bit of weathering, not much just a bit as that doesn't show on your pictures and that the blue seedtrays are missing the black tape. Oh and does your radio also have the wire wrapped around it as I can't see that either. Not a showstopper but it looks so much better with one. Again, good luck with getting deployed!

  19. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    I'm personally a big fan of the WWII american officer garrison cap. I have one with the correct piping( Military Police) as we are the military police of the Empire. Piping is the colour of the rim that can be seen on the edges.
