I'm guessing Battlefront II then? I only played the new one in the open Beta.

The E11-e was the Imperial Engineer version. I wonder if that was clone era. I never played as the clone's version ofthe engineer.

I have a DL-21 from my navy trooper build. I wasn't aware I could wear that with the IG build.

Possibilities!

The blaster list on our CRL is a suggested list based on a discussion we had here several years back. At that time the DL-21 wasn't brought up but I think it should be included. But, really, it's just a suggested list which is why it's under the optional section. No one is going to check out on troop or care as long as it looks like it fits into the Stars Wars theme.

Should I not use it for my approval photo though? I had some plans to troop as an Imperial "gunslinger" and carry a DL-44 and DL-21 or a pair of 44's. I think it would look badass with my hard amor. :D

I like that a lot.

Now I need to decide if I should go with a brown holsters or black. I plan on rocking the DL-21 and DL-44. I have a black righty holster for the 21 and a bown righty holster for the 44. If I go brown, all I need is a left holster for the 21. If I go black, I need to modify the 44 by chopping off the scope to make it fit in a new lefty holster.

Does anyone have brown holsters as a gunner? I don't think the CRL prohibits it. Thoughts?

The CRL doesn't specifically forbid black holsters, since those are on the optional list. All action figures that have had holsters sported black ones, though, so it wouldn't be inline with the character. Personally, I think a brown one would look out of place with the black leather belt and black boots. But, once you're approved and out on a troop, the only one who will stop you is your POC.

Yeah, that's what I'm leaning towards too. Time to get out the dremmel and cut off that scope.

I am looking for a BAB (Big butt Blaster) thinking of a DLT19 - Is this approved?
Here in the UK, I'm getting grumbles that I wouldn't be able to troop with one - But were Gunners, surely a Big Gun is part and parcel of the Character?

There are only two blasters that gunner (action figures) have been known to carry: the E11 and a custom blaster rifle with no name. The Imperial Engineer from Battlefront II carried a blaster shotgun but it also looked like an E11. On the CRL is a list of blasters we think would be appropriate for a gunner to be armed with but that's really a guideline as opposed to a rule. We've had lots of gunners carry just about anything so a DLT19 wouldn't be that unusual.
