Boot spats have been ordered!  So now I wait for about two weeks for everything to get here. . .

I really hope I'm not to terribly busy in the near future.  I want this to be done and approved before ROFCON.

an FYI, the app team is taking about a week and a half to 2 weeks to get approvals through at this point because 'there are so many people applying in the lead up to C7'

Then I'm going to have to haul shebs when I get everything!  This might be difficult. . .

I wouldn't put money on being an OM by ROFcon, but there's no shame in doing a troop in armor that hasn't gotten its stripes yet.  Heck, last time I even made a troop, it was in a then-unapproved kit. :P

Yeah, I agree.  I just heard back from Sidi, and it'll take about a month to get my vest.  But that leaves plenty of time to paint my armour, find snaps, make my Kama, and pull everything else together so that when I do get the vest, all i have to do is trace out where the plates will go, make holes for the snaps, and assemble.

I did a troop in armor before I was approved.  I sent in an app 2 or 3 days before hand, and went trooping.  It was actaully really helpful beause it taught me a lot about my kit.  Not only how to get into it, but also about how things fit and how things sit.  I made A LOT of fixes and improvements after that first troop.  Took me about 3 more weeks to get fully approved.

Good point.  All the stuff should be getting here within 3 weeks, but the vest'll be getting here sometime towards the end of the month, and ROFCON starts on the 27th.  I'll hopefully get it finished and pictures taken before the end of March, to be approved by May the 4th.  That's my new goal.

Got my bootspats today!  With the way they look and feel, I might just forego the shins and boot plates.  I'm able to do that with a modern kit, right?

Cool!  I'll probably just skip them then.  Fits with the sniper specialist.

And because I'm bored while waiting for my plates to wrap this puppy up, this:




Right boot


Left boot

Do these look ok, or do I need to add more to them?  I'm not putting armour plates on this kit.

I personally don't see an issue at all with those gaitors. They look great! The laces are hidden, and I think that's the biggest thing. I'm looking at using the same thing on a second kit once I get this Early Crusader out of the way.
