The 501st Legion

We are Vader's Fist, we are the Five Hundred and First!


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.

Empire

Peace * Order * Justice

Following the rise of the Galactic Empire, the 501st transitioned into a stormtrooper unit, like other clone units. Given new armor and weapons, the 501st faithfully served the Empire, operating under the direct command of the Sith Lord Darth Vader. After the Battle of Kamino, the 501st became the last remnant of the Grand Army of the Republic fully composed of Jango Fett clones, as opposed to the ever-growing and more diverse Stormtrooper Corps, where the Fett clones became a minority, with the inclusion of a pool of clones from different templates and birth-born recruits, while others were not clones, but humans from an Imperial academy.

The legion fought in a number of battles during the Galactic Civil War in an effort to defeat the Rebel Alliance and bring peace to the galaxy, although the Alliance ultimately triumphed. Though the 501st was disbanded after the Battle of Endor, the Chiss Grand Admiral Thrawn resurrected the designation by forming a new 501st Legion. He also added more diverse recruits to the 501st, including non-Humans. The reconstituted 501st was stationed in the Unknown Regions, where they protected Thrawn's Empire of the Hand. Over a century later, the legion was in the service of a new Empire, by then under the rule of Emperor Roan Fel.

Hey guys, just thought I'd drop by and see what's new. I love the new pictures. I'm for the Alliance but I have mad respect for the 501st. I still need to add the Hand of Judgment to AaW. Anyway I hope you all had a good Halloween.

Sweet, I got a surprise for you and Packy. Sense you two have been AaW's biggest supporters and because you guys favor the Clone Wars more than me I'm throwing in a Munificent-class Frigate for skirmish in the next update. I'm going to talk about it in the next screen shot I post up for AaW. It's just my way of saying thank you.

Way ahead of you, packy. I was already going to add the Eclipse into Galactic Conquest it's just I hadn't got around to it until recently. Oh and it will be a finished version, not a under construction version.
