    Question about TK armour supplier. . .

    Hi all. Does anyone know how these guys are to deal with? Do you think I'd be safe buying from them? Its the bucket I'm interested in particularly, not so much the rest of it. Gotta take things slow.

    Be very careful. If you decide to buy from them, get realistic delivery expectations from them. Try to do a split payment (half now, half when complete). It will keep the fire lit underneath them.

    You can get FX armor a lot cheaper than that.

    If you haven't already, sign up on whitearmor.net

    If you really want FX armor (after doing some research on it) drop me a PM. You will see FX armor is becoming less and less common in the 501st (for obvious reasons).

    Go read the Whitearmor FISD forum about FX armor. There are more accurate helmet armor than the FX and the price is comparable. Or better yet, contact your garrison in your area and have them set you up on what's what.

    Thanks for all the advice, guys. I was ready to jump on the band wagon and order from these guys, if it weren't for their shoddy website layout. I didn't realize FX was so more or less frowned upon. Of course, I haven't done a terribly large amount of research on it. I'll head over to Whitearmor and see what I can see.

    WARNING: Dont just get on there and start asking. Do the intro thread. Look around for awhile. If you of normal size, AP is a common and nice option if you plan on trooping.

    Dude? that sounds REALLY hinky. You probably shouldn't say things like that openly, maybe keep it to PM. You might make someone nervous, like someone that your asking for parts from

    Yeah, I was planning to just look and see what the common opinions are. AP sounds like a nice choice, and I plan on trooping as much as I possibly can.
