The Empire is known to strike at will, well geared up with limitless power in their arsenal, as well as a militia of Stormtroopers that are relentless in their attack. Stormtroopers come ever abundant in almost every Star Wars movie scene that involves them, and they always seem to outnumber the opposition by a long shot. They never seem to have a lack of manpower to execute at the Emperor's will and can easily swamp and overwhelm challengers with the sheer size of their army of Stormtroopers.
1. Their suits allow them to survive in space.
The armor used by Stormtroopers has been created to act somewhat like a space suit straight out of NASA. The suit is stated to be equipped with a pressurized gas system and can help them survive if they are flung out into the world of area. These matches can keep them alive in space until they are saved and returned to a pressurized environment.
2. Their armor is made to be resilient.
The making of each and every one of the suits is done in accordance to very high and stringent standards that have been set by the Empire. It is said to have the ability to withstand and nullify blaster fires. This almost impenetrable armour offers protection to Stormtroopers against fatal injuries when in combat.
3. They are armed with some tools in their utility belts.
Even though their suits are made with protection first and foremost in mind, the makers of the suit have not skimped on equipment on the offense as well. The gadgetry tied together with the suit will assist the Stormtroopers in navigating through even the most challenging environments or situations. Oftentimes, their utility belts would come useful under life and death events. Attached with the suit on the utility belts are a power pack, micro-binoculars for visual aid as well as the all important com-link for communication.
4. The suit enables them to remain anonymous.
The identities of almost all Stormtroopers featured throughout the Star Wars movie franchise stay unidentified to the viewers. This is because their body gloves and plastoid composite body armor have been standardized. Think of it as putting on our school uniforms back when we were still schooling. The pure white facade plastered over the armies of Stormtroopers was unquestionably designed to strike fear in anybody who decides to oppose the mighty Empire.
5. The Stormtroopers are equipped with a standard issue firearm.
Stormtroopers must not leave for their respective duties without carrying their EB-11 BlasTech Standard Imperial Sidearm. The Empire’s weapon of choice marries potent firepower and expansive range, all packed within a compact and rugged form. The power cells built into their utility belts can supply sufficient energy to fire 100 shots through their gun. The rifle possesses a capable cooling system to save it from overheating from continuous gunfire.
In this tutorial we used the following supplies:
Step 1. We begin construction by drawing a circle and a centerline. (Pencil B)
Step 2. With the help of the lines drawn, draw the shape of the helmet. (Pencil B)
Step 3. Draw the eyes and mouth on the helmet and draw direction lines on the sides for the remaining parts of the helmet. (Pencil B)
Step 4. Drawing on the direction line, draw the rest of the helmet details. (Pencil B)
Step 5. Remove all unnecessary construction lines and make a slight tone on the darkest parts. (Pencil B)
Step 6. Start the more detailed shading from the top of the helmet; use a softer pencil for the glasses and line. (Pencil B, 5B)
Step 7. We now use a pencil and apply them softly for the dark parts, just as the helmet is uneven, then we shade the details of the helmet. (Pencil B, 5B)
Step 8. We do the same with the rest and make a slight shadow on the sides as if shading the line of the shoulders. (Pencil B, 5B)
