    Ok here she is, Pre-weathering results of my Mudtrooper Officer kit. The shoulder badges are a take on Commonwealth WW1 badges commonly seen after 1914. Seeing that the whole Mudtrooper aesthetic is very WW1 figured this was a fun nod. It’s an aurubesh “A” for armored or “A” company, as decided on with my local Muddies. It’s not Canon, but for canon events it’ll be under a trench coat anyway.

    Thanks a lot, Ron!
    That's how a lot of others outside the forum (also 501st members) see it, too!
    Now we just need to find someone, to put it into practice...

    I see some compelling evidence that it was issued/used by Navy Troopers, and am in favor of adding it to the "optional weapons" list.

    OK Officers and Crew, we're looking for awesome, quality photos of IOC members in action at events to post on our Facebook page, so if you have one that you'd like to share, post it here. If possible, avoid posting photos with the general public in the background. You can have a bit of fun posting humorous photos, but keep it in good taste. Photos will be picked at random and posted on Facebook, and we'll try to pick photos that reflect the spirit of the Officer Corps. Please include a brief description of the event, TKIDs of the members, and Garrison info.
     
    *** UPDATE***
     
    We now have a Twitter account, so your photos can now be posted there as well!

    As far as I know he was, unless some other guys with fur collars popped up in deleted scenes or the visual guidebook.

    vonmoen reacted to xAlpha in Problem with the mimban officer chest piece   
    Mine fit over my head, so I can't be certain my other ideas that I didn't have to use will work for you, but some thoughts I'd had originally:
    Cut the back so it can open, since it'll be covered with the coat anyway (but check with your GMLs) Magnets on the forks A piece that attaches underneath each shoulder; that's haarder to explain, but basically the idea was for the forks on top to do nothing but look pretty, while the real fastening would be done underneath, either with magnets or wingnuts, maybe even a strap and snaps. @CantinaSecurity might have some ideas, too.

    Okie dokie, I'm getting conflicting reports here...
     
    Knee high boots, black, no zippers or straps, smooth...so can I use Russian boots...or do they have to be the stupid expensive riding boots. 
     
    FYI I'm gonna muddy the heck outta them. I'm going for a realistic front line officer here.

    I bought Russian boots for mine, mostly because no one in hell am I going to muddy-up my expensive Mux boots.

     
    They're the chrome officer boots, so they're higher than enlisted boots. Also I'm short, so they're the right height.

    Your GML is wrong and should be corrected.  The Ovation Derby boots are a VERY popular beginner boot for officers.  The Amazon description refers to them as "rubber" which is not really correct, and may be why your GML thinks they are wrong.  They're PVC "rubber", a soft PVC, which is different from the actual rubber boots that the CRL was originally written to avoid. (people were trying to get approved with tall rubber muck boots for a while)
     
    I'd guess there are easily 100+ approved members who wear those boots, and that's a considerably conservative estimate... it could easily be 5 times that many.
     
    Note: They're not very comfortable.  They're designed for horsreback riding, where comfort standing around or marching is not really an issue.  And they don't breathe at all so your legs will be a sweaty mess every time you wear them for more than 5 minutes.  Many people start off with them and grin and bear it while they save up for something better, if they will be trooping as an officer much.  They also are fairly narrow, so they won't fit people who have larger legs, and of course they can't be altered or stretched like a leather boot could.
