For those of you who are interested in becoming a part of the 501st Legion as an Imperial Stormtrooper (original trilogy, TFA, TLJ, etc.) you are invited to sign up with the 1st Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment here: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/
The FISD is the Legion's official site and a wealth of correct information for all things TK related, from those contemplating a white armor journey to those aiming for Expert Infantry and Centurion (higher screen accuracy) levels.
At the FISD, you will not just be welcomed, but encouraged to ask any and all questions you may have, including how to get started, suggestions on where (and where not) to buy armor, build threads/help, TK weapons, etc. All the information and assistance you will need all in one place!
We also recently launced a new TK Pre-Approval-Program https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/ ... approvals/
A dedicated forum where members can submit their completed stormtrooper costume for peer review prior to formal submission to their GML (garrison membership liaison). Your armor will be reviewed and suggestions made by the FISD Staff and Imperial Attaché team, but detachment members can also provide peer review on any submission. All feedback provided will be specific, constructive, respectful, and helpful. Any feedback that is deemed negative, derogatory, inflammatory, or otherwise offensive will be deleted, and the poster can be subject to account suspension for repeated offenses. You may also be provided suggestions for attaining the rank of EI (Expert Infantry) and Centurion levels should you wish to pursue higher levels of screen accuracy.
WHAT THIS PROGRAM IS NOT:
This program is not a replacement for the GML approval process, as Detachments are not charted to approve costumes for membership. While a costume that passes Detachment peer review should be in a state to be accepted by a GML, Detachments cannot override a GMLs decision, nor are GMLs bound to accept the ruling of a detachment costume approval. That said, as a general rule the goal is that any costume that passes peer-review approval should be accepted by a 501st GML.
As the official FISD Imperial Attache for the Nordic Garrison, please feel free to contact me if you should have any questions.
With unquestioned loyalty
