Hello everyone, I'm new and a bit lost. I hope this isn't too random of a question. I thought I wanted to do a Sandtrooper but have some questions after being (nicely) talked out of this plan. It was suggested I do a Heavy Weapons trooper that can be weathered with charcoal dust, have a heavy blaster and a back pack but still have the drop boxes and can clean up to be a clean TK Stormtrooper for blending in with a group, or for when a back back is a hassle, say at a large convention with crowded floors.
I have a new in box AM armor set. Like I said I planned on doing a Sandtrooper but thought that a Sandy and a Mimban trooper were the same really but with different weathering and backpacks. I know now this is not correct.
I then realized that the Mimban Troopers have a different "Rogue One" helmet that is semetrical and has recessed chin bar stripes as well as a blast shield on the helmet. The Mimban CRL also has drop boxes, which Sandtroopers do not have obviously. If I build a weathered trooper with a ANH helmet and it has drop boxes am I painted into a corner where I cannot be anything other than a HWT?
I guess what I'm asking is, what can I actually do with my AM armor kit? I am from the Pacific Northwest where is always muddy and the Mimban fits the best looks wise in my mind, and freaking love the troopers gear and poncho. Can my AM ANH kit be a Mimban Trooper if I get a different helmet?
I'm kind of overwhelmed, I thought I have this all figured out. What are my options with this kit and should I stick with a Heavy Weapons Trooper/Vanilla ANH Stormtrooper?
