Re: Tk boots

Another vote for tk Boots. High quality, and great fit.

Contact them right away, because there's usually a long waiting list.

Re: New need help making Kylo Ren Cosplay

Hi and welcome to the board!

Kylo Ren isn't 501st approvable, yet, but quite a few members are making/have made costumes (my brother included). If you head over to the Sith Lord Detatchment board you can find a decent amount of info on making one.

Good luck!

Re: Greetings from Plainfield, IL

Hi Mike, and welcome to the Garrison! Glad to have you aboard. No one here has an Anovos set, yet, since they haven't been shipped. I've got a TrooperMaster TK set, but I also have an Anovos set on order; I couldn't pass up that intro price. If built right, it will most likely be approvable by the 5...

Re: Hello, I'm Rob. I'm new here.

Hi Rob, and welcome to the Garrison!

I wish I could answer your question about the TB costume, but I'm just a TK. Hopefully one of the many tree-huggers on the site can help you out.

Re: Mike the Nube From Chicago

Welcome to the board, Mike! For all the info you need to know about a stormtrooper set, head over to whitearmor.net. It may seem like overload when you first get on the board, but there's a lot of good info. BTW, the board is not working great, right now, but they are working on it. ;) EDIT: The boa...

Re: Greetings - Need help modifying

No problem, I'm glad I could help out. Believe it or not everyone here starts where you are now; none of us started with a full set of perfect armor that fit us. ;) This is a great Garrison and the folks are always willing to help each other out. I think you're making the right decision, in the long...

Re: Greetings - Need help modifying

I would steer clear of that EFX helmet on Amazon. If you put it up next to an AP or TM helmet you'll see where if falls short. I totally understand you wanting to balance keeping the wife happy but also having a nice suit of TK armor. However, I think you have to do the "pull the band-aid quickly" t...

Gotcha, can't let the wife be mad at ya! I checked your post, and you put it in the Newbie forum. That's probably why you didn't get too many suggestions. If you post it under Hard Armor and post a LOT of pics, like the ones here, you'll get a lot more suggestions. Likely a few that I missed, too. I...

Re: Greetings - Need help modifying

Hitman is correct, you'll still need to fix your ab buttons to match the CRL. Other things I notice on your armor from your pics: -Chest - You can't make the chest any higher, because it has to overlap the ab plate; however it should be higher. It looks like the piece isn't large enough. -Back - You...

Hi Scott, welcome to the board! This is the first Rubies TK I've seen. "Rubies" is a bit of a taboo word, lol, and one doesn't see them too often. I'm not a TK expert, but I do see a few things that would have to be changed just from your picture. I think you'd want to post pics that show all sides ...

Re: 2 Newbies...advice welcome :)

Pretty sound logic to me. Plus, everyone loves seeing Jawas a troops! Have you signed up for the Denizen's detachment board? If not, they can help you out with the specifics of your costume. Kim, board name Coin, is one of the officers over there and a member of this garrison. She's pretty knowledge...

Welcome to the board!

Jawas are cool, but what costume really speaks to you? I think one of the hardest parts is deciding on a first costume.

Hi Keith, welcome to the Garrison! Like I tell the others that want to build a TK suit: excellent choice!!! But I'm biased... I finished mine at the end of May; I'm a relatively new stormtrooper. Very cool about ordering the Anovos. There are a number of TK hopefuls that are waiting for the suits to...
