Galactic Marine

Post by LeMartain »

Hello!

My name is Martin and I'm from Malmö.
I got really interested and impressed with the Nordic Legion after having two troopers at my sons birthday earlier this year.
And now after visiting the Star Wars Days at Legoland I decided that I should build my own costume with my Star Wars crazy family backing me up.
I'm going to make an Galactic Marine costume and I have signed up for the Blizzard Force forums as well since, as far as I know, there are no GM's in the Nordic Legion... yet.

The plan is to have it ready and approved sometime in the first half of the next year.
If everything goes as expected I'm thinking of celebrating by bringing the whole family to the Star Wars celebration in London next year.

Any tips, hints or just a simple good luck wish would be really appreciated.

Cheers!

The galactic marine is probably my favorite clone costume, so good luck with that one. It's also eligible for membership in the Rebel LEgion, so it might be worth checking out the RL clone forums as well - http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/ ... 4865f89ea4

Welcome to the NG forums. I look forward to following your build.

Please add a link to your build thread on Blizzard Force here so we can follow you. :)

Thanks for the tips!

I already found some good build threads at those forums.
It seems to be difficult to find the DC-15A blaster except for Woodchucks place.
Does anyone know where I can find it. I did find the "blueprints" in an archived forum so technically I could build it myself.
Just need a workshop, tools, materials, time... :)

It's been two weeks since I signed up or the Marines. It has been an intense period of training and studying theory, historical events and strategy planning.
But now I'm finally ready for my first assignment...

I also got this action figure that will be standing on my desk at work so I don't loose focus on what's most important :)

Nice! I love this costume.

Don't use the figure as reference. They are notoriously inaccurate :)

Have you found the correct paint? I planned one if these but the paint was impossible to find, so I ditched the idea.
