    Mar 25, 2009, 6:20 PM - stormy vs sandy #1

    Right now i'm working on my SE FETT but I want my next project to
    be a sandtrooper. I need someone to show me the difference between the two. I hope I dont sound like a retard. I know about the pauldron and ammo pouches but what else?

    knee diamond is different, the shoulder straps are different (not bumpy), helmet paint is different (without black stripes), no holster, bigger guns and lots of weathering should do it.

    I may have missed some.

    The ab-plate is also different and they have back packs. +++ the MEPD would have all you seek on sandtroopers, and the FISD on stormtroopers.

    What Nate said and no Drop Boxes. You and Andy can go onto the MEPD website and look at the "Requirements" section for Deployment, that should give you a better idea. Sorry, I don't have an hour to kill listing all the diffrences.

    And the best bit, unlike the Stormtroopers, they never lost a battle or get beaten down by Ewoks. Sure they couldn't stop the Falcon as it was making it's escape from Mos Eisley, but a squad vs a freighter is no contest.

    The first set (Stormtrooper TK459) is not highly accurate body armor wise but gives you a good idea of the accessories. The second set (Sandtrooper TD459) is much more accurate overall.

    Keep in mind that there is variation between Sandtroopers, but off the top they do not have the stripes in the grey areas of the helmet, addition of pauldron, no ribbed shoulder straps, no colored buttons on stomach/different console, no canister on back (replaced with backpack), different knee plate, much different paint/weathering process, no drop boxes, addition of specific but varied ammo pouches, varied weapons.

    C'mon bro, some of the stuff you had listed was a little off. We don't want to steer this guy in the wrong direction.

    Exactly
    and I wasn't only speaking of your info
    Cr4nky said they should have Backpacks too
    NOT ALL TD's have packs.
    I referred Woodman over to ART cuz he knows Sandy's inside & out
    Just trying to help.

    The MEPD is definitely the place for sandy info but if there is anything specific I might be able to help you with, I will be glad to throw my 2 cents in. I certainly don't know it all, but I do know a couple of things about sandtroopers...
