  1. I have one of those too...but I could Always use a spare and one for my mrs as that is still missing to complete her TD.
  2. A happy sandy new year and all the best in health, love and happiness to all of you and your loved ones for 2020. To recap 2019 in a nutshell, lot's of things happened...e.g., the LCO stepped down, the Mandalorian series started and the saga has ended….at least that's what they made us think. I personally am still the proudest detachment leader in the 501st as in my view the MEPD is the Old Dame of the detachments and will always be. We might not have as much costumes as the other Detachments but the ones we have stand out in a crowd. I hope that you all will keep the MEPD train moving, I know I will! Cheers and again, a happy sandy new year!!

  5. Welcome all, to the biggest sandbox the Empire can offer!
  6. All, Our Legion Commanding Officer has stepped down. Due to private circumstances he can't dedicate himself as much as he'd love to. The remaining Legion Officers will stay in their respective functions unless they volunteerly step down too. This will not affect us as we know how to run this show ourselves Cheers!
  7. Shoot me a PM with the desired name and I'll change it for you buddy

    Census 2019

    Troops, It's time to check and fill out your census for 2019. Please do check if you affiliation standing is still correct as I have noticed and received messages that some members had an expired notification in their stats. Pm me when you have that expired notification so we can correct that data. Cheers!
  10. That's great having found the UP80 at your parents. As bigwam mentioned it's all about the right dimensions in relationship to the other pack components. But I would definitely buy the UP85, having one extra won't hurt
  11. Finally received the template for the CRL, Going to work on it this week!
  12. I'm hoping to see this go live by the end of this month! Stay tuned troops!

  14. Welcome all new troops! Enjoy your time and stay here at the MEPD!
  15. Welcome to the MEPD Joe, good to have you on board!
  16. What the...kill it with fire! :P
  17. I do have a few stupidly simple questions that I cant really find answers for. 1. How tight fitting do I want the waist armor?, Not too tight of course and preferrably no gap between the ab and backplate 2. How tight for the arms and legs? Should they easily fall off my arms or fit snug? There are official sizes for the strips but depending on how big your arms are. But 15-18mm is preferred. 3. Do I need a balaclava like with my AT-AT driver? No, unless you like that warm and snug feeling 4. I have a diagram of a TK that specifies the width of the leg strips as 20mm front and back for the thighs, and 20mm front and 25mm back for calves. Is 25mm for the rear calves optional for people with bigger calves? Or is 20mm is preferable for the rear calves? Preferrably as small as possible,but the guys in a new hope were a lot smaller that we are these days. So when needed bigger 25mm is the maximum I would do. 5. Where in the world do I find the proper Tandy snaps? All I can find are snaps that are embossed with Tandy. https://www.tandyleather.com/en/category/snaps 6. Weathering products? I don't want to use the hairspray method I want something permanent and earthy. Well that's something really personal, some use real dirt, some a mixture of oil and dirt and some drag it behind their car for a couple of miles. SBut seriously I would go for terra colours and experiment with them and please, but please don't use acrylics...and the hairspray is used for fixation, I have applied several layers and it works like a dream.
  18. Awesome pictures and a great report/ ompression for those that couldn't attend it. Big Thanks for doing this bro'!
