The 501st Legion, also known as the 501st Battalion during the Clone Wars and later known as "Vader's Fist" and the Five Hundred and First, was an elite unit of clone troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars that later became a stormtrooper unit. Made up of units like Torrent Company, the 501st fought in many battles, such as the Battle of Teth and the Battle of Coruscant, becoming one of the most well-known legions. In 19 BBY, the 501st became Darth Vader's personal unit as he led them during Operation: Knightfall, in which the clones helped take down the Jedi, whom they believed to be traitors to the Republic.

Hey Star Wars: BattleCry trackers,

November has been a very productive month for my fellow team members. They have been busy texturing, modelling and coding, while I have been busy organising a forum and recruiting more members.

New members that have officially joined become part of the team since the last update are:

  • '411Remnant' (video editor and 2D artist)
  • 'Atombomb' (3D modeller)
  • 'deltasquad451' / 'Goldstein343' (3D weapons modeller)
  • 'Lephenix' (3D modeller)
  • 'Krym0r' (texture artist and mapper)
  • 'Deforges' (texture artist and 3D modeller)
  • 'WideBoy' (prop artist'
  • 'bringdowntherain' (musician)
Without further ado, here are some sexy screenies for you to enjoy!

This sleek and shiny blaster prototype is Deforges' latest effort:

Next up is Ande's new rebel trooper, which currently needs a face but is already coming along nicely:

411Remnant has been designing some menus for the game and this is one of my favourites (bare in mind that the fonts still need tweaking):

Freelancer134 has been making other awesome models, Andy_ftw has been busy coding the CP (control point) system, Ande has been is working on a spawn menu, but more on these things next time!

Glad to see this is still going strong. Keep up the good work guys!

By the way, are you planning on a singleplayer campaign or just an instant action mode? Because I'd advise getting someone experienced in writing for videogames.

Our main priority is Multiplayer, but we might add a Singleplayer mode later on if it's popular.

Sure, it's still a work in progress and this is just an example of the kinds of things we're looking at.

I'm open to suggestions, fire away. :D
