Hello everyone. First off loving the forums. Lots of great information here. And everyone has been super helpful. I’ve owned an anovos armor kit since they first started shipping. But was quickly overwhelmed. Bought a kit along with my brother. Sat on the shelf for a few years and after attending a local build party recently and realizing I hadn’t messed up my armor yet I’ve been working away towards completion. My goal from the start was sandtrooper armor. And after realizing there was a higher level than simply 501st with the MEPD I’ve set my target even higher. I’m hoping that my anovos kit is a suitable starting point. No worries if I need another helmet kit or something. But I do have some general questions. Should I just aim for SWAT level from the start, or aim for 501st, then PO and finally SWAT? Can one simply assemble the armor, get approval for that stage of it before weathering? Don’t want to have to go back if something from the start was wrong. Secondly I’m targeting the Cantina captain. But there isn’t nearly as many close ups and information on his weathering from what I’ve seen. Compared to the road block captain. Where does one start about that? I’ve recebtly posted purchased pouches from Blaster8266 and a DLT-21 from HFX. Didn’t consider the fact that the rifle may not be up to SWAT level.... as far as backpack I’m working on purchasing one from Crookknight. Chest is nearing completion. It does not have the shoulder straps as per what I’ve seen on the 501st. I need to either sell my anovos belt/holster combo or cut them off. Your thoughts there? Diamond knee is in the works too. Just need to fit my shins then glue. Any info I’m missing is appreciated. Thank you for your time!
