Title: Akaleh Skirata

After having OM for almost five months, it's finally time to start a thread here!

One of my app pics:

Winter snow shoot from yesterday (thanks to Ivy Fett for hiking all over the park with me and taking pics):

I saw a picture of another merc making a snow angel on the Facebook page Sunday, which was the whole reason I thought of doing this shoot, so of course I made one too

Wear your seatbelt, kids! (Fear not I didn't wear the helmet while driving)

Tracking some prey...
(I use a rifle in this shoot as a prop, but it is not approved. Someday I'll put some work into it and mod it up.)

Where's Mando?
(I actually think it would be pretty cool to have a Where's Waldo parody book with different mandos hiding in scenery and some pics of dozens of mandos together at comiccons and such...)

And then we went home and had cocoa, naturally.

We took a few videos while we were out!

The bridge was a lot longer than it first looked when I decided to skip all the way across and back...

I saw a playground. I knew what I had to do.

So... I wanted to test the flexibility of my armor. The goal of this challenge is to pick up a piece of paper in your mouth with only one foot touching the ground, and stand back up. I actually did it once, but we didn't get it on camera. I'd say that's some pretty flexible beskar.

Thanks so much, everybody!

At long last, here's my pictures from the May 4th troop at the Coralville Children's Museum. I was planning to maybe have some more pics and wanted to post them all at once but I better go ahead and put these up already!

All ready to go!

Awesome shots.  I so wish you were going to be at WW this weekend to help christen the new jail cell.

Wish I was too! Just too busy right now, instead I'm judging a TKD testing and watching a practice burn with the local fire station. If only I didn't need to sleep! You guys will have to tell me all about it! And great work on the jail cell, I've been silently watching the progress!

Did a photoshoot this last month with my cousin! His facebook page is here, (https://www.facebook.com/charlesbuckleyphotography/) he did such an incredible job.

New profile pic first, this one is one of my favorites.

WIth everything going on, it's been really hard for me to get motivated to work on upgrades or my second kit, but this (combined with the mandalorian season 2) has reignited that spark, lol. We also took some pictures of what I have of my zabrak so far, which I will be posting under my Beviin Shrike build.

That's some amazing work! I would love to know how you got the rangefinder to move and light up.  I am trying to get mine to be controlled by a motor, but that has proved very difficult, any tips or resources would be appreciated!

Sorry that this is so late. My rangefinder doesn't have a motor, nor does it light up. There's a spring and magnets in it to keep it from flopping around and that's it.

New pics from my latest troop! The set was amazing.
