  1. Mimban here. The ability to go with or without a backpack is indeed huge. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  2. I'm not too familiar with the OT versions of stormtroopers, but the Mimban uses the Rogue One style armor. It's quite different than the OT style. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. Does anyone have the SWCC group photo that was taken? There weren't many of us but it would be a cool photo to see Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks! If you're on Facebook, ask the Mimban Fam group. There's a couple Aussies on there that have them. I could have sworn they sourced them from Ebay though... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. Did anyone ever post the group photo anywhere? I can't find it if it was. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. Yes. I painted the whole kit and then added the acrylics. I put a good layer of clear coat on top of the white too so when I sanded down the "mud" I wouldn't cut into the white as much. I used rustoleum high performance white. I almost wanted to just make a rogue one stormtrooper because it looked really good bright white! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. Hi Scott! I'm hoping to see more pop up. At Celebration, there was me and maybe one other this year. I'm glad to see you go with Jim's kit! Easy kit to work with and the rogue one armor really makes the mimban look great in my opinion. I used a combination of acrylic paints on mine. I mixed grey and mars black 50/50ish and then added some burnt umber. I used this as a light wash and then slowly built it up, dabbing it off with an old t shirt. Then I used the same mix with way less water to add the thicker areas. I then dabbed some Vallejo Russian mud splash paint around. I sanded it off and reapplied quite a bit. The lower armor is thicker than the top. After that I wet each piece down and used mars black mixed with water and sprayed it out of a spray bottle. It will then run and dry over time. It worked for me! The important thing is to not go too crazy with the thick areas
  8. Final edition of my Mimban. Removed a bunch of mud to lighten it up. It was a huge hit at Celebration! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. Thank you! Sadly, I do not. I really wish I did though. If you need any help I can offer my two cents where you need it... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. Thank you! Jim's helmet came separate from the blast shield. I just had to trim the sides to fit. It wasn't too hard! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. I don't know what this is but I know that I need one now lol Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks. I have not heard anything from Dutchy. It sounds pretty involved to me so I'm starting to understand why these things take so long to get published. Hopefully soon. I'm going to be out of the country for the winter so was hoping to be one of the first to go through the applications. As long as it's done by celebration I'll be happy though!
  13. Finally brave enough to show my work in public! Just in time for Halloween! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. I added a plash to the backpack and adjusted everything a bit. I absolutely can't wait to wear this kit out and about. Also can't wait to apply for my first 501st costume approval! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
