    Dang!!! That’s some sharp looking armor. Great work!
  2. Henselmonster Backpack Build

    Hey Troops! I am finally starting my new pack build after nearly a year of collecting the right parts for it. I still want to replace my seed trays and the siphon with original parts, but I will work with what I have for now. I am planning on 3D printing the exhaust, but I am going to wait until I have the correct sized seed trays so I can fit it properly. Down the road, when i can get the cash together I will replace the radio with the woodman cast, but I am pretty happy with the one I have for now! I am using my nalgene bottle as a place holder for the top bottle. It seems to be pretty close in size to the screen ref so i may just look for some used ones at a flea market this weekend and use those. I am following @Strider's build pretty closely with this one. I am wanting to get as accurate as I can with this. So many changes need to be made but its a start for now! Hopefully over the next few months I can finish this thing! (P.S. The radio was from Rolf who I believe originally purchased it from Strider)
  3. Henselmonster Backpack Build

    Added an acrylic disc to the radio dial on my radio. It really helps sell it as the real deal. The discs are 60mm and fit perfectly. I didn’t even need to glue it in place (though I might just for security) I also picked up some accurate switches at my electronic surplus store. They were from a radio also built in Hong Kong in the 70s!
  4. Request deleted

    @SCRIBBLER or @Felice whenever either of you have a chance could we get this trooper sorted? Thanks guys!
  5. Agreed Pack 3. As far as the blaster goes, hard to tell. But the rail does look like it attached to the back sight. And it could just be a weird reflection, but I can almost make out the spring in the back of the Sterling. I think maybe this is a standard E-11. Its possible, this scene was on a sound stage not in Tunisia.
  6. Battlefront II Heavy Trooper

    It would be great if someone already had one with some Endor battle damage. Then they would just strap on a pack, pauldron, pouches and then they are good to go!
  7. Aramis' Move Along - Pack #3 - Build...

    I have a removable back panel for mine. Like Jason said, as long as you can't see it, its totally fine.
  8. Battlefront II Heavy Trooper

    It would be great if we could convince one of the ROTJ troopers from FISD to do one. Who else makes ROTJ armor besides TM and CFO? (There is a cheap version on eBay made by Maker of things, but I would avoid that like the plague, cheap flimsy recasts)
  9. Battlefront II Heavy Trooper

    All I need is some nice CFO armor and I'll do it! Haha. Now, who wants to buy it for me???
  10. New Users, introduce yourselves here!

    Nice! Welcome to the sandy side!
  11. Battlefront II Heavy Trooper

    There are so many similarities between this and the Special Edition trooper. I think the biggest differences are the use of the standard Pauldron and the Shoulder pouch. It is also a bit less weathered but it looks like in the game the troopers get dirty during campaigns. So I think any amount of weathering should be passable.
  12. Battlefront II Heavy Trooper

    Here are some more screen caps of the Heavy Trooper skin. This is the black pauldron version. Some good shots of the pack too.
  13. Battlefront II Heavy Trooper

    The more reference the better! Screenshot away!
  14. Battlefront II Heavy Trooper

    Here is an example of the Heavy Trooper details for Tatooine Missions. Still looking for better screenshots, but here is one: Note the grey frown, the tears and traps don't have lines. Looks more like the ANH Sandy bucket. Still has bubble lenses though it seems
  15. Battlefront II Heavy Trooper

    Borrowing these images from the link above The armor, like the rest of the imperial troopers in BF2 use ROTJ armor. In the game, when the mission is not on Tatooine, the Troopers wear a black Pauldron, looks to be leather and full sized and not the shorter neoprene looking version that the Sandtoopers wear in the special edition. The Heavy troopers also have a ROTJ bucket for these missions. It looks like in the Tatooine Mission however they are given an Orange Pauldron and the painted details on the helmet match more to ANH's style. So maybe in the CRL we should allow both ANH and ROTJ buckets (like we do for the Magma Trooper) Both version of this trooper wear a MP40 shoulder pouch, which the SE troops do not. The pack is also basically the same as the special edition troopers. Also I love the mud and grime on the boots and shins of some of these troopers!

    Hahah. See, higher up the chain. Keeping it simple would make it less confusing, that’s true.
  18. TD 10290 Requesting Deployment

    Looking great man! I would also try to throw in a pic of your back without the pack on. Great pack too! My only note would be maybe look for slightly larger bottles, they seem a little thin, but that shouldn't hinder your PO application. Great work and good luck!
  19. Kyber Field pack discussion topic

    I totally agree. An optional accessory is probably the best option.

    Excited to have you join up with us when the CRLs get done!

    Techincally speaking, the Sandtroopers in ANH are really supposed to be stormtroopers. They are referenced as both Stormtroopers and Sandtrooper in official merchandising. Lucasfilm is not known for their naming convention consitantsy. As someone who works on official Star Wars merch almost everyday, it’s a toss up as to how to name these different troopers. The general idea is that they are all “Stormtroopers” that includes Biker Scouts, Snowtroopers, and Sandtroopers. They just change up their unifom for their environment, but they are all still regular Stormtroopers. I dont see see why both detachments can’t have the pack. Also, with the MEPD having that trooper you are able to essentially have two detachment approvals with one costume. Just slap on the pack over your R1 armor, add a pauldron and boom, you get to have a TD designation as well as your TK. Currently the MEPD has 2 approved CRLs for the first time since the detachment was founded almost 18 years ago. We are trying to expand and get away from being the “one CRL detachment”. We have 2 more CRLs in the works, including the Jedha troopers (both packs). We are going through a small transition and trying to expand the detachment to have the specialized, deployed Stormtroopers with gear fall under the MEPD. The FISD and MEPD have spent the last year working this out. This is more of a discussion for those higher up the chain than me. But those are my 2 cents. I for one and very happy that the MEPD and FISD can work together on this. We share many members as it is. In the end we are all plastic spacemen just having fun and trying to make kids happy.

    Looking great! Should be an easy approval
