Greetings from Huntington!

Post by ne0phyte »

Hi guys,

My name is Jake I’m near the Huntington area and looking forward to getting some 501st costumes made and get back to troopin’. I was one of OG snowies (TS7159)in WV a long time ago in a galaxy far far way :mrgreen:

I tried to join in late 2019 then had some things go down along with the whole 2020 thing so it delayed me.

Looking to do a Nihilus costume first , ordered the complete costume from mywicked armor last week! Hopefully there won’t be too much tweaking it to get it approved.

Will be great to do some troops throughout the year again.

Hey Jake! Which Nihilus are you doing? KOTOR or COTF? I helped Nina (TFE's DL) with updating the KOTOR CRL's description and images as they were in dire need of corrections back in Jan 2020. Here's my build thread over at The Flagship Eclipse detachment forum.

The WickedArmor COTF Nihilus is much more straight forward to get approved than the KOTOR one, but Rob has revised the cloth components of KOTOR's and now sells it as a version 2, but the KOTOR mask he sells still needs a little modification, depending on who you ask. :P

Welcome back!

Awesome and thanks! Nice to meet you TeaJay, I purchased the COTF version. I'll try to get signed up on the flagship eclipse forum this week :D.

Next costume will be an imperial fleet officer black, but I'm going to start slowly gathering pieces for a custom Mando(for the mando mercs group) and a biker scout.

Welcome Back Jake. It’s been quite a few years since that armor build at my house where you were working on your snowie. It will be good to troop with you again.

Welcome to the forum Jake!

I hope we get to troop together at some point. I really look forward to future conventions closer to your section of the state. I'm up in Morgantown. :)

@Keller, very cool! I'm just waiting on mywickedarmor to ship my Nihilus out , lol

They said 4-6 weeks and it's been about 4 so I'm hoping within the next month I can start to take the approval submission photos .
