FISD.png

Description: Stormtrooper, Heavy Weapons Trooper
Prefix: TK
Detachment: First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment
Context: Star Wars Battlefront
Heavy Weapons Troopers (aka Imperial Shock Troopers) are specially trained and equipped for adverse environments and hard targets.


The 501st approval requirements are listed in black.

FISD Defines two additional, optional levels of costuming excellence. In the page below, requirements for Level 1 "Expert Infantryman" are listed in blue. Requirements for Level 2 "Centurion" are listed in red. Please visit the FISD web site for a full description of these standards.

For 501st membership only the requirements in black need to be met.

Special Notes:

  • Visit the Frequently asked questions page for information on the Rubies Supreme Stormtrooper costume.
  • Blasters are not required for legion membership per our weapons policy.
  • The armor parts shall be made from one of these types of materials or like materials: White fiberglass, ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene), or Polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
  • FX armor may not be used for Level 3 approval.

This Visual Guide has been reviewed by the detachment staff and the LMO team and is certified for use as a minimum approval guideline for GMLs. GMLs are free to approve this costume type.
  • Any uncertainties or questionable aspects of the submitted costume should be brought to the appropriate DL/GML peer review section of the legion forum.
