That donut of Saw's rebels sometimes looks white, and sometimes just unpainted metal color (not white). Here are some reference images I got from some behind the scenes parts on the bonus disk.









And for another reference to that helmet, in Rebels Season 3, where we meet Saw in the tunnels in Geonosis, a bunch of his men are missing, and they just find the helmets. They have them with a solid/rigid looking top and sides, but they are clearly white donut helmets.

Are we done picking nits and back on the topic?

I'm quite certain that the visual similarities to, let's say, the Cairo thugs from Raiders of the lost ark is not a coincidence.

What's cool about the terrorist cell is that it gives the costumer a wide variety of costumes to choose from: simple robes to more complex costumes.


This IS the topic. You posted and asked for feedback/ discussion, and were giving it to you.

As former DCO and current judge, the things that come to mind is:

How does this costume fit into RAID?
Why does this costume fit into RAID?
Do these characters represent an organized group such as The Rebellion or the Resistance, or, like Denizens and smugglers, operate outside the influence of those organizations?

You need to dial back the tone or go play elsewhere.

I think that is a good point. This costume isn't necessarily RAID, since they're more outcasts of the Rebellion. They're not really smugglers/bounty hunters either though. I could see them being classified simply under the Alliance Citizens (like Willrow Hood) category. Or just a new category specifically for Saw's militia.

That opens up costuming standards a lot.
I think some generic base-line standards would apply to all characters, for instance:
A helmet
- Choose one:
---a Rogue One ERT-style helmet (not a ROTJ ERT helmet)
---a black Alderaanian style helmet with red visor
---a shadow (black) scout trooper helmet.
Clothes
- Black or tan cotton twill shirt extended to mid-thigh. Long sleeve
- Cargo pants, or 'Arabian Knights' style baggy pants (I'm really not sure what these are called)
- Red or black shemagh
- Goggles
Accessories
- Cross-bandolier style pouches
- pouch belt
Weapon
- Pretty much anything. You could even require that no standard-issue weapons be used in this category (has to be a custom modified blaster either based on standard-issue, or completely original, but fitting in the universe).

The technical term for these guys is "Partisans" or "Saws Militia", even though they are technically ex-Rebel alliance, they are still a Rebel Cell fighting against the empire and should be classed as RAID due to their notable uniformity and style with the rest of the rebellion forces along with their recent alliances

I also suggest the wording for the helmet mention it has to be a weathered silver, the rogue one donut wording could also refer to the metal grey and metal blue Rebel helmets specific to the soldiers of "Rogue One" mission to scarif

Yes, while 'Jedha jihadis' has a nice alliterative ring to it, Partisan is probably the most accurate term, or Saw's militia since more people would probably know what you were referring to.

As far as the helmet goes, I agree. It's only a Rogue One *style*, NOT a ROTJ style helmet (they are slightly different shapes, and have different vents on the back).
I personally feel the color could be either eggshell or the brushed/weathered silver. Eggshell makes a little more sense to me since they were in the desert.

Although this would probably fit better in Supporters, I am not opposed to having these costumes in R.A.I.D. until such time as they find a better home should that ever happen.

Saw's Militia will be the official name for this group of costumes as far as this discussion goes.

Any costumes that would be considered for membership would have to be based on individual characters. We need shots of the front, back, and sides.

Moar pix plz.

Hi, Fringe Detachment XO here. I hesitated to post earlier because there's a great discussion going, and I don't want to be seen as trying to "take" a costume from another detachment, but recent comments seem to be open to finding them another home.

For what it's worth, there's a category in Fringe/DB94 for "Unsanctioned Rebels," and I'm including Saw's Partisans in that. We have several Two Tubes costumes approved already.

PS: Dual detachment is also an option if people want to do both.

I have no issue with it. I feel that these costumes are a cool idea that need to be explored. Where they wind up is not as important as them finding a home.
