First build. Looking for help/suggestions.

Post by ortophonic »

Good Morning all,

I have decided that I am going to attempt a snow trooper build for my first costume/ submission to the 501st. As not having any knowledge to what supplies I would need, or any real experience I was hoping some of you could lead me in the right direction. I have posted a similar topic to the Blizzard Force forums, and have also been browsing around for some tutorials/ guides to what I will need.

Thanks for the help,
Matt

Thanks! Yeah, I'm having a tough time finding info (no surprise). I may just end up doing an office for my first, so I can get approval and troop with you guys one day :).

Have you checked out the Detachment page? That's a great place to start. What part of the Midwest are are you from? Oh, and welcome!!
Sorry Lord Vader but the ability to destroy a planet IS significant.

No snowtrooper experience here either, but I built Cody sans instructions, so I might be able to help you along the way.
