    TD-6049, Ireland Garrison "We came, we saw, we kicked it's Jawa's @ss!" *apologies Ghostbusters fans for probably mangling that quote! "Different Cantina,same old story" "Ok..so it's not technically the Falcon..but it still counts,right?" And finally..I'm not in this one..but my girlfriend is the Jawa. Taken at Celebration London last year if anyone recognises themselves! Sent from my R4 unit using Tapatalk
  3. Special Edition TD CRL discussion topic

    I guess it's possible..as with the abplate buttons too..that they were originally painted..but after a couple decades in storage the paint has simply deteriorated. Could be a possibility that some SETD's have white soles,some black, some painted ab buttons and some not..all due to the differing rate of deterioration over the years on the different suits.

  4. Special Edition TD CRL discussion topic

    CRL looks good..one wee point regarding the boots though. ROTJ TKs had a white sole as opposed to the black ones of the earlier film versions. I don't know if we get a good look at the SETD's boots onscreen..but it stands to reason they'd have used the same ones. Sent from my R4 unit using Tapatalk
  5. Special Edition TD CRL discussion topic

    I do have a ROTJ TK from CFO..and a few years back did intend on making it into a SETD once it had picked up a few dings and scuffs from hard trooping. However since then...I kinda ended up making a 'proper' Sandie anyways. I don't know if I'd proceed with the conversion now sorry,..I just think it'd be a tad redundant having 2 TD's.

  6. Special Edition TD CRL discussion topic

    I dont often comment here..but lurk a lot! I STRONGLY disagree with allowing ANH style armour for this build..even as Lvl 1. It should be ROTJ style..or nothing.There are 2 very reliable vendors now for ROTJ armour( more vendors than some armours have!)..difficulty in aquiring the correct kit is not an issue. At the most lenient..modded ANH style armour could be allowed for Lvl 1..but must have the fat black frown...clam handplates..stickers for lid details..torso armour trim...etc. If you are just gonna use ANH armour..why even bother creating a SE CRL? I also think E-11 and black pauldron should be the only ones accepted. For all ontents and purposes..no other SE Sandie bariant exists. Sent from my R4 unit using Tapatalk
  7. R1 discussion topic on the FISD

    I don't think the Det name is really an issue. The "Sith Lord Detachment" homes Kylo- a non-Sith, "The Flagship Eclipse" isn't limited to characters associated with the ship, "Imperial Gunnery Corp" is developing the R1 Ground Crew CRL. The 'I' in FISD stands for "Imperial"..yet they happily house the First Order. Heck, even our sister group the Rebel Legion has non-Rebellion characters in its ranks- notably Old Republic and Resistance. It's really not a big deal. Sent from my R4 unit using Tapatalk
  8. Looks awesome!. If kits are coming..I'd be in for one! Sent from my R4 unit using Tapatalk
  9. Possible patch or shirt?

    I have a serious lack of Sandie swag...count me in for a shirt with this design on! Sent from my R4 unit using Tapatalk

  12. Weathering n00b-getting some practice!

    47 views and no replies....that bad huh?
  13. Hey folks. Haven't started on my armour yet, but I have literally everything needed to get out hunting for some droids(minus the motivation to get stuck in at the moment!) having built a TK before to EIB standards, I am not worried so much about the assembly,..but weathering is an unknown quantity for me-most my other cossies I try to keep shiny shiny. So,..I have been practising on my blasters before commiting to the white plastic. Using raw umber,water, kithen roll and an old t shirt. Any and all opinions/suggestions welcome:
  14. Gonzo the Garindan

    LOL!! When I have been trooping as Snoot, I have been known to have been called Gonzo, an evil Clanger(dunno how well known they are outside the UK!) and the Anteater from the Pink Panther cartoon. Considering he was very nearly responsible for saving the Deathstar and wiping out the Rebellion, poor Garindan just doesn't get the credit he deserves!
  15. New Users, introduce yourselves here!

    Hi folks. Just popping in to say hello! My names Colin, member of the Ireland Garrison. Started out as a TIE jockey,then decided to have a go at firing the BIG GUN as an IG. Came down to solid ground as an Endor Stormtrooper and have also been known to frequent your patch as a long nosed Spy. I am also working on a Snowie,and I am hoping to join your ranks before too long. Thanks for having me, please bear with me as I will no doubt fry your collective brains with n00b questions!
