Summer 2013 - HK's -836 & -861 are busy at the HK Imperial Armory, upgrading our Sandie (SandTrooper) armor for compliance of standards as set forth by the Black Sheep Squadron (HK) of the Imperial 88th Calvary.

    TK861, a member of the Southern California Garrison, part of Vader's Fist; the Fighting 501st Legion - an Internet based organization of armor-wearing groundpounders.

    Currently, TK861 is on TDY (Temporary Duty) to a small Class M planet revolving around a 'G2' spectral class sun... in another galaxy far, far away from the Empire.


    This site is devoted to the exploits of TK861 during his TDY on Earth.
    Features include the following sections:

    * Armor Tips - Everything you ever wanted to know about White Armor (almost everything...) - written for nuggets and seasoned Troopers alike. This section is revised periodically.

    * Digital Gallery of TK861's exploits - A comprehensive photo journal of TK861's activities on Planet Terra.

    * Star Facts - Astronomical data about your own galaxy - and features astrophotography (of your local galaxy) by TK861.

    * Galactic Links - Places to go within your galaxy to check out other Trooper-related sites.

    * Field Reports - Actual accounts of Terran exploits as performed by TK861 during his TDY assignment. These are excerpts from actual Field Reports sent to his superior command back home.

    * Equipment Manual - A Trooper's Field Guide (technical specs) of Gear worn and used by Imperial Stormtroopers. Really dry reading with some funny bits thrown in for good measure.

    * Trooper Gear - Details of additional gear necessary to complete / complement your Trooper armor. I have a few new toys that need to be included here. Check for new additions periodically.
