Agreed, vod.  Very much so!

Yeah, having withdrawals from hanging out with my vode.  The only known cure? Building stuff!  Just cut a set of shoulder armor, similar in style to the Death Watch ones.  And I'm scouring the web for images of the Special Forces Imperial logo, I want to put that someplace on my kit. 

For those that are reading my story, Straka Zulu used to train SpecOps clones.

Sad news... I dropped my bucket at a recent troop, cracked the corners of the visor.  But I was told my the helmet maker to use a good super glue for a temporary fix. I'll get some fiberglass and resin to truly fix it later.

Still waiting on my Assassin app, but heard they are going through some restructuring in the Brigades. Hope something happens soon, this suspense is driving me mad! ??? :P :laugh: :'( :o :-\

I guess it's. '...or Bust"... This just happened:

Good Morning STRAKAZulu,

Upon review, the marshals have concluded that your kit does not meet the quality standard enforced by the brigade team. While your armor thickness meets the minimum standards required by the CRLs, the brigades team would like to see your armor plates have more depth and curvature.  We encourage you to stay in contact with your marshal, and continue to upgrade your armor and the rest of your current assassin build.

Looks like I'm shelving any upgrades for the time being. :( :rolleyes:

Looking for opinions.  While looking for voice amps, I came across this:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00L1E6NR8/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1501261084&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=voice+amplifier&dpPl=1&dpID=41qrH4MJ5wL&ref=plSrch
Does anyone use these? I'm wondering if it's worth the money.

For a similar price, I recommend getting an Aker from TK Products. Or, if you want something more compact, Eternal Armories makes a small voice amp that mounts in your bucket, and you can use audio transducers to turn your helmet into a speaker. Not overly loud, but it does work, and it's pretty cheap.

Just checked out TK, and what I need would be WAY out of budget. :o :o

other options:
http://eternalarmory.com/product/kate-voice-amp/
http://eternalarmory.com/product/voice-amp/

I have the 2nd one in my steel bucket. if you get 1 of the larger transducers (another 14 bucks) it does a decent job of turning your bucket into a speaker. Cheaper then an aker (though less loud), more expensive then the one you were looking at (though not by a lot), and far more compact then either (also not as loud, but it's better then yelling to be heard all the time).

That said, the one you're looking at will probably work fine for a while. I just try to stick with places like TK or EA because they troop (EA is run by some Mercs), but that's personal preferance.

They are,  but remember that the 1/2 is minimum. If the Ruus questions it they tell you it's not enough. Always err on the side of more

So, work continues.
Looking to add some fans to my wife's helmet as well as mine, and came across this:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00EL938E6/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1503250163&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=helmet+fan&dpPl=1&dpID=51HDcPCtA9L&ref=plSrch
Has anyone used these? How big are they, and do they push air good enough to survive a troop?

Those are what I use in my bucket. They're about 1.5"x1.5"x0.5", and put out a decent puff. They say 5v, but I use mine with a 9v and haven't had any issues.

My only comment would be that they're fairly loud, but that's going to be an issue with any fan that pushes a meaningful amount of air.

Does it interfere with using a mic?
