Hello from Peoria

Post by Metalhead25 »

Hi, my name is Chase and I'm hoping to join the 501st. I'm planning on putting together a set of clone armor of some kind(Don't know which clone yet, I can't decide)

My favorite Star Wars era is the clone wars, I'm really into history, heavy metal music(as the username suggests), and fantasy/sci-fi in general.

Welcome trooper! I recommend checking the 501st CRL (costume reference library) for some inspiration on which costume to go for. Read the requirements and make sure it’s something you’ll love as it will take up a lot of time.

Welcome, Chase.

If you aren't already, I'd recommend joining the Clone Trooper Detachment boards as well. They'll be the most knowledgeable about sourcing armor.
