Troops, I would like to keep you informed on where we are standing at the moment with the CRL for the R1 sandtrooper. I will start filling the CRL with all that is available this week. Also I would like to say that only one CRL will be made for the Jedha Sandtrooper but it will have the options to choose between packs( the fieldpack and the Kyber pack). I hope that it makes sense to you all. ..to be continued troops!!
Hey everyone - I've got my first kit on the way and I couldn't be more excited. Up here in upper UPPER Michigan, we have a little 501st crew - and already have a Sandy in the ranks. I'd like to do a Rogue One Jedha Patrol with the "Kyber" backpack - and it seems there was some (lol, a LOT) of back and forth over where this armor fit. I think having two "sand" based troopers with different variations would look really cool for our troop, and don't mind going for the difference in appearance. What I'm looking for are some 501st CRL's as I can't seem to find many clear answers on if this is an approvable armor. Any answers are helpful! Sorry if this has already been addressed, I'm the FNG!
dutchy posted a topic in AnnouncementsBrothers and Sisters, Both FISD and MEPD have reached consencus about the following: R1 Jedha sandtrooper and the Kyber patrol trooper will be added to our ranks. Both CRL's must be made and will be added to the CRL eventually. But before that can be done both characters must be recognised by the 501st. This doesn't mean that you can't start building one as we do need some excellent pictures for the visual guide part of the CRL, so let's see those WIP threads popping up! A special section will be created for each new character, as is done for the other characters that are part of the FISD. Currently we are also looking in the CRL for the SE TD, so even more exciting news! I understand that this is a significant change for the MEPD, but we do need to keep moving forward and welcoming new members that have exciting new armors or will build one. WELCOME TO THE MEPD R1 Jedha sandtrooper and the Kyber patrol trooper
Troops, I want to use this thread to discuss the Jedha trooper in all its glory as it is named a "sandtrooper". The way I see it is that the troopers in R1 are a variation on the sandtrooper costume as we know and that the sandtrooper we currently know is an evolution of this armor. They are deployed on a planet to uphold the law and we also have deployed troops called Police Officers/ Swat Officers that do exactly the same thing. The armor itself has the R1 stormtrooper as a base so we do share specifics with the FISD on this trooper with the exception that this specific trooper has a pack, a heavy blaster, pauldron and weathering. There is also one other trooper that wears a pack in R1 , the "Kyber trooper" but this costume is definitely not a sandtrooper and should therefor belong on the FISD. I'm hoping to see a constructive discussion over here and everybody is free to contribute, so fire away troops!
