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.

May the 4th be with you fellow BattleCry fans!
We have some awesome stuff to show you guys today.
Before we get onto the juicy stuff though, I would like to take the time to say goodbye to long time 2D artist 411remnant and 3D artist Gertmanus - his stay was brief, but we wish him luck in his new job!
As always, we've managed to recruit some new members who will be creating some awesome things over the next few months:
3D modeller Sharkybg has been hard at work making the interior for our kick-ass Snowspeeder:
In other news:
Sound artists Calum (tunednoise) and Altureus have been polishing up hundreds of voice overs (a HUGE task) and we'll do our best to get some of them out to you guys via moddb and our website.
Sharkybg has recently added new interior sections to Hoth which look awesome and will add an interesting gameplay element to the map. More on this later!
That's all for now folks,
We hope you had/have a good day! The BattleCry team.
