    As we look forward to what 2018 will bring in the TFE Det., it's always nice to reflect back on all that has happened in 2017. It has been a good and very active year here in the TFE Det. in 2017. Newly Elected Detachment Leader and her staff. We have seen many new programs started and/or old programs improved this year: Trooper of the Month, Blood Members, Mediation Tracker, Fundraiser Program, Academies or Temples. We have seen the formation of the first 4 TFE Det. Academies or Temples. We have created our 1st ever Det. Racing shirt, and had two sales runs of those shirts. We have cleaned up the Membership Records for the Detachment, and everything is now running smoothly. TFE Detachment Merch had a strong kick in the pants this year, after a long pause with very little Det. Merch coming out, this year we came out with several Coin and Patch runs. We have had a strong push at writing and/or correcting existing CRL's. Many of these newly written or corrected CRL's were just done last week, so we are still waiting on LMO review and approval, before we can post them for you to take a look at. We have had a strong year with many more TFE Det. Members being added to our coveted Comms Tower FB page. Our Membership has skyrocketed with a large influx of new members, eager to be a part of the best Detachment in the Legion. From all of us here in the TFE Detachment Staff, I hope you all have enjoyed your time here with us in 2017, and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2018. We have more planned for the TFE Det. in the new year, and we will try to make the TFE Det. even better for you in 2018! Det Staff-

    Hello everyone, DS-62629 here. I just joined 501st and Flagship Eclipse as Nightsister Asajj Ventress not too long ago. I've been in Rebel Legion for a bit, but I have been wanting to join 501st as my favorite Star Wars character. I am so happy to finally be here! I'm from the Sacramento, CA area. I look forward to getting to know all of you more!

    So long as it is a smooth texture that isn't knit looking and heavier fabric to facilitate the necessary drape, the fabric should work. There are some polyester blends that work nicely for a more affordable cost, but if you have the $$ and the fabric matches the necessary points, go for it!

    This was one of the finished parts I got from my squadmate, so not sure on the exact details. If I remember right, the ring is 3D printed and the handle inside is (I think) a US handle. One side is normal, the other end was modified so it would handle the second blade (it lights up on both ends). I'm hoping to eventually add the single blade version as an option someday...

    Hello mate and welcome in the Revan Section You seem to be planning your work way ahaead and that's great ! I personnaly used thick black cotton for the caplet, hood, and hakama. You can't really see it in the reference pisctures but the fabric seems smoother than rhino canvas. Concerning the boots and gloves, I ordered some on amazon and my boots are simple one from a regular shoe shop (hard to find decent neutral boots without a high heel ><) I will follow your thread to see your progresses good luck =)

    For the Royal Robes, I think there is enough there to build with. The Gauntlet/Bracer question is a difficult one, but might be solved with it being listed as an optional item for the costume in the CRL, as the majority of the time his arms are not visible anyway. This would then go into the role playing of this character and body language of not having your arms visible in every picture taken of you. The LMOs would be the best persons to ask, as this would be a new costume to the TFE and 501st, and it falls under their scrutiny. For the IK variation, this would also be a completely new costume to the TFE and the 501st, so again it would best be answered by the LMOs. I think that last pic you posted was just an error in coloring that they made the extra items red and not gold. I think there is enough to build this costume as well, with and IK being the base with the added Gold trimmed items making it unique. This costume would also be given its own CRL. I have linked this post to two of our LMOs, so it gets their attention, and then they can give you their opinions on the matter.

    Howdy! I'm Alan Steinberg from Houston, TX, that's South Texas Squad of Star Garrison. I've been doing this 501st thing for about 9 years with an ANH Stormtrooper and more recently got my ROTS Vader approved. I'm now working on a Bith character and I'm just here to be supportive as Flagship Eclipse is kind of like a sibling detachment with Sith Lords.

    Just keep in mind WA does not come with two tunics only comes with one and does not come with belt, gloves, boots or balaclava.

    I have the WA COTF Nihilus and it is a fine costume very good quality work and I’m happy with it. Always keep in mind that a costume from a merchant isn’t always approvable you may need to make tweaks and changes yourself depending on what you GML says. For my Nihilus I had to change the skirt a little bit and dye my cape black as well as weather it just a bit more. If anything contact your GML and discuss with him about WA Nihilus. I love my Nihilus from WA and I troop with it. I hope this all helps and good luck on your Nihilus adventure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just waiting on one last piece (the blackout hood), but I thought it was worth it to post some pics of the ensemble in its penultimate state.

    Probably just the code, but could you give me an idea of what the platform might run?

    . Darth Revan Revan was a Dark Lord of the Sith who lived around the years 3,963?3,956 BBY; roughly 40 years after the Great Sith War and the fall of Exar Kun. Revan sought what many considered to be the complete annihilation of the Galactic Republic, a tendency later followed on by Revan's apprentice Darth Malak. Revan and Malak led a breakaway faction of Jedi Knights into war alongside the Republic against the Mandalorians during the Mandalorian Wars. This action was taken against the will of the Council and caused a schism within the Order. After Revan led the Republic to victory, Revan and Malak left known space and returned "changed." Following their return, the two new Sith Lords waged war against the very Republic they'd fought to save. Interestingly, however, Revan waged war in a very particular way, seemingly wanting to preserve the infrastructure of the Republic and to strip away the "dead weight." It is theorized that Revan believed there was a greater threat than the Mandalorians lurking outside of Known Space and was seeking, in fact, to force the Republic to strengthen itself, rather than actually seeking the Republic's outright destruction. Because Revan's first (and main) appearance is in the Knights of the Old Repubic videogame, the character's appearance and even gender is variable. However, more recently, canonical sources dictate that Revan was, in fact, male - in spite of the fact that in the second Knights of the Old Republic game, the character is first referred to as female and it is decision of the player whether or not to contradict this and "set" the character as male.
