The only source to really delve into it...  was the Vis. Dictionary for the OT, Matt.  It sort of tries too hard to associate specific rank to color though and of course doesn't go beyond the films.

The way I view it...

-Orange (In the Vis. Dic says it's Lt.) is any rank of Officer, from 1st Lt.'s on up.
-White (in the VD is Sgt.) is the varying levels of non-coms.
-Black is the grunts...  Privates, Corporals, etc.
-Grey (debateable...  Shots from the film clearly show that there is a pauldron that is NOT white, but not black by any means.  It seems it's a very very light grey to me, but it's not white by a longshot simply by comparison of the trooper's armor) is what I've simply labeled as "specialist".  Be it a comm specialist, engineer, etc.
-Yellow from Dark Forces2: Jedi Knight series is a heavy weapons specialist.

Of course though white, black, and orange are the only definites, and also there are troopers seen without any pauldron though it seems they're performing stunts.

I personally feel the pauldrons are a dumbed down method of identification for in the field or in civilian situations where average joes may need to speak to someone.

Went to Target today to get some snacks before going to the movies and stumbled across one more.

Which makes 11.

I picked up my first three this weekend, so I have...3.   Happy to find some though - the Tatooine/Mos Eisley wave has shown up twice at our local WM now, and sold out in a matter of a day or two.

Came across 4 more at Target this morning bringing me to 17.

Keep 'em coming.

I got 3 from buddies locally yesterday.  I could've gotten as many as 5 more I think but I passed to show a little self control.  Great figure though so it was tough.  I doubt I have that kind of restraint in the future. ;)

Hey man, a VOTC stormie for $7.  Go to town.  No restraint necessary.

I think it's funny that you've bought almost all of your Sandtroopers at Target. It must be their way of payback for you boycotting their $13 clones. :P

I stopped at 5 loose Sand Stormies. Once I switched the pauldrons around, I didn't have much cause for any more.

I'm nearing 20 VTSC Biker Scouts though...can't help myself...must seek help...
