    1890 is Lovecraft’s Birth year so it seems a fairly fitting homage to have it as our Division number.   

    well no crap,  wouldn’t have asked if I didn’t know that

    and seeing how I’ possibly the biggest Lovecraft fanboy on our planet, I don’t see how I wouldn’t know that

    explain this toymas celebration, I’m not very educated on this groups ins and outs of celebration, othe rthan toy soldier day, which was fun to walk outside with a sign acting like one of those anonymous wankers.

    Expand we must, or die we will

    we don’t appeal to the public, and we are to closed and inside, we need to open up and put ourselves out there, we need…. Advertisement

     

    Seriously though I joined just in time to see the group go into one of those “downs” as you seem to call them. I hope that I can see one of those “ups”

    I think I’ve come up with three solutions to our problem:

    A. Change nothing, hope to “tip over”, basically what we’re doing now

    B. become more main stream, AKA sell out, I wouldn’t suggest this but it may get us a flood of new members

    C. Radicalize, or basically what I’m trying to do with my splinter group;Make it a legitimate movement and not just idealism and comicon recruitment centres.

     

    Option A would effect the community itself the least, while option C. Can’t really be done with us being more laid back (except perhaps me) and B. would just be appeasement to the ones who don’t join because of branding.

    This might be a bit against the grain for most of the members but I’ve joined quite recently, haven’t heard about Steel until some time after joining actually. 

    I am also quite bothered by militaristic ideas/uniforms and some rather cultish ideas.

     

    I’ve seen somewhere (and I’m too lazy to look it up now) that anything becomes an uniform when you put a patch on it. I’d much prefer TSU “uniform” to be anything you want to wear but with TSU accessories – let’s have scarfs, hats, gloves, jewelry, patches, badges, etc in wide enough array that it can fit any style, any cosplay?, any occasion (although creating jewelry worthy of meeting the Queen might be a challenge)

    With this I’d like to see more variety of the armory (sorry Airhead :D) and some “official guidelines” for what people can make at home to be easily identified as TSU members  

    You misunderstand how uniforms work in TSU, you can do this very easily, and the armoury is entirely optional. You see I would love to own every item in the armoury to use in my uniform, but currently I only need a single soldier patch for my uniform because I use outside sources and custom logos to do my uniform otherwise.

    I always felt like the uniform needs to have some DIY style to it, we are a ragtag group of idealists no? 

    But alas even a mostly normal uniform will not distach the stigma of wearing two bloody colours around and all doing a single hand movement to signal ourselves different (looks at literally any cult). Even my splinter movement I have come to call it (which I’m trying to put more effort into while also pushing the toy solider agenda,which is very similar if not just a toned down version of my mission) is just the salute to signify membership, can still be seen as cult-ish. So don’t be bothered by any cultish or militaristic styles of this movement, anything different will have that stigma.

    its canvas material, I’ll have to get a picture of it.

    I had the idea of making a sort of case over the hat, but the bill makes it a problem, perhaps I recolor the bill and leave the rest green, with a case over it.

    any suggestions on how to recolour a hat that is dark green to black with yellow stripes?

    Noting the fact that this is a 1960s style military hat

    anyone know how exactly one cleans out the part between the filter and the mouth piece in a GP5?

     

    Would be greatly appreciated, my GP5 hasn’t been allowing exhaling

    You mis understand what I mean by “radicalize”

    I Live in Liverpool, and I haven’t met a single Toy Soldier offline, I hadn’t seen one, I hadn’t heard a single tongue echo the name until I found a Dr.Steel fan on a retro-futurism discord. What i mean when I say “radicalize” is not to bring politics in it, but to actually go in the streets and spread the message beyond conventions or what have you.

    Radicalization is doing what I saw when I found the origins of the toy soldier army, what i thought was done, spreading the word, wanting to make a better world, not what we have been doing, twilling our thumbs and talking about our latest art blog. Toy soldiers is a place of art, yes, but when I heard is message, I heard an echo I agreed with, to have a fun world, one where people have not to fret of such tings as boredom, yet the movement itself seems dead, and well, bored.

    I would rather see a sell-out, at least then I would have a reason to disdain, but I don’t, the message is there, people believe it, just no one carries it out. We are not building a Utopian playland, we’re pulling wool over our eyes and saying that the world is a playland, that we not need to effect it, that the Internet will be our utopia.

    But what do I know, I’m just a lowly pleb compared to the code-monkeys and yellow jackets, they know truly what out meaning is, I’m just a crazy radical who wants to bring politics into a group who thrives without them.
