Need guidance on my first build

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I am Connor Horvath I was told to come here by Northeast remnant garrison, because you are the best at these. I want to be a sandtrooper but I don't know where to start. Right now I am a college student in Washington D.C. I would like some help in starting out with my costume. Like where to find a good kit and what the main requirements of the Sandtrooper outfit are. 

Thank you,

Connor Horavth

Hi Connor.  Welcome to the MEPD.  Yes, you have come to the right place.  To get started here, check out this section:

http://forum.mepd.net/index.php?/forum/1-the-barracks/

And check out the CRL (costume reference library):

http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TD_sandtrooper

And check out this thread for help in selecting a kit:

http://forum.mepd.net/index.php?/topic/10053-where-what-and-whom-to-avoid-when-buying/

This hobby is really about the research.  Take your time, do some reading, and ask questions.  There a number of options for buying armour - all depends on your budget and body size.  The do-it-yourself kits are very rewarding and will save you a few bucks.  Try to stick with vetted sellers - and remember, if a deal looks too good to be true... well, you know.

Also, since the sandtrooper armour is almost the same as an A New Hope stormtrooper, you might want to also check out FISD (www.whitearmor.net) for additional information and general tips for building armour.  Of course, once you get into the sandtrooper details such as backpacks, pouches, and BFGs - nothing beats MEPD.

Good luck with your journey!

I think the Northern Darkness Garrison covers the Lake county area. 
Northern Darkness Garrison http://www.ndgarrison.com/
The other garrison I think is also closest to you would be the Midwest Garrison.  http://www.midwestgarrison.com/

I would contact them as they are local to you. They can probably find someone close to you to help you out. Maybe even have an armor party. I'm not sure who here might be a member.
Speaking from experience, cutting and assembling your armor by yourself without any help is frustrating and daunting. 
I just kind of figured you were in Hammond from your email address. 
I would contact their CO, XO or GML http://www.ndgarrison.com/contact.php

Joining their forum might also be of benefit, as  you can get quicker help and in person probably. You will also meet your future garrison members. 
Some garrisons have a Facebook group where they help incoming members.
