Thanks, now I can't find the lower part of my jaw.  ;)


Fantastic job on the cannon, my friend! May I inquire as to how you made it? I think it would be great if you made the Republic and Confederacy starship guns to go along with that masterpiece.

Thanks!  That is a WIP pic, because since then I've added decals on the white strips of the back wall, and should be able to finish it tomorrow.  I'll be sure to post pics when it's done.  The cannon is the vintage mold and everything else is foamcore and foamie pieces.  If you ever go to RS, check in the dio forum for my WIP thread.

Hasbro announces that they're making a Death Star Cannon/Turret.

I couldn't wait for them:



Haven't seen this with the walls yet. Beautiful!

So is this figure still hard to find in any other States?  I counted 27 on my TRU pegs today.

Great job of course Daigo-bah.

My Gunner army has increased since Wal-Mart has been getting in the goofy pre-packaged display boxes of H&V with smattering of Endor figures.  I'm setting a 20 figure goal and I'm pretty near that.  I have 9 opened and a number still in the package yet.

I'm getting where I need to be and see this figure sitting now more and more at WM stores.  Still never see him at Target, TRU, KB, or KM though.

It's great because this guy is still in about three more revision cases, so I can't see how anyone can miss getting a few.

I've picked up my last DS Gunner. I'm at 36 now, that's one platoon, or 4 Squads of 9.

And yes, 36 is my new 20. I've sat down and tried to figure out how may I would need of each Imperial to make a battalion.

Well don't keep that kind of intel to yourself....share the break down.

As it stands I picked up 3 more in the last 3 days. Putting me at 21. Plus I have 6 on their way to me via trade (THANKS JEFF!!!!!) But those 6 are getting Tie Pilot Helmets...

I keep trying to tell people 36 is the new 20 too...but the girls just aren't buying it.

I love seeing and hearing about these platoons etc. that you guys build.  Seriously, it's great for the future production of and supply of army builders from Hasbro in the future.  I try to allow myself to spend whatever I want on the 4" scale since I rarely buy the higher end stuff, but it's hard to spend $7 a figure anyway!

Okay.

I used SW insider as the basis for the break downs where a Squad = 9, a Platoon = 36 (4 Squads,) a Company = 144 (4 Platoons,) and a Battalion = 576 (4 Companies.) Since there are only 12 movie fodder types of Imperial Troopers that have been produced (I think the only one lacking is the non-ranked tunic officer and perhaps the spacetrooper from ANH,) larger quanities of each figure are need. Here's my take on a Battalion:

1st company
      - All platoons; Stormtroopers (144.) Btwn Votc, CT and converted sandies, I'm at 144
2nd company
      - 1st platoon; Sandtroopers (36.) I'm at 36, POTJ, Evo and Saga2
      - 2nd platoon; Scout troopers (36.) I'm at 33, all Vtsc
      - 3rd platoon; Snow troopers (36.) I'm at 35 with POTF2 and Saga
      - 4th platoon; special ops (EU)
               - 1st Squad; Blackhole/Shadowtrooper (9) I'm at 8
               - 2nd Squad; 501st stormtroopers (9) I'm at 9
               - 3rd Squad; concept troopers (9) I'm at 2
               - 4th Squad; (9) haven't quite figures this one out. Might be 2 teams of 4, Darktroopers and Space                         troopers with a comic book trooper as Squad leader. Or a squad of which ever ones I can get more of.
                 I'm at 3 Darktroopers and 2 Space troopers
3rd company
      - 1st Platoon; Imperial Troopers (36) I'm at 7, POTF2
      - 2nd Platoon; Gunners (36) I'm at 36, all Saga 2
      - 3rd Platoon; Jr. officers, black jumpsuit (36) I'm at 18
      - 4th Platoon; Jr. officers/technicians, greay jumpsut (36) I'm at 19, 5 are customs
4th company
      - 1st Platoon; TIE Fighter Pilots (36) I'm at 18
      - 2nd Platoon; At-St Drivers (36) I'm at 14 with Imp Forces and Han Drivers
      - 3rd Platoon; At-A Drivers (36) I'm at 29
      - 4th Platoon; Command
                  Ranked Officers (18) I'm at 18 with some customs.
                  Royal Guards (18) I'm at 15 from all modern releases
