Here's a new 76th thread, y'all enjoy.

I might need to take a look through this initial post to make sure that everything is still relevent.

_______________________________________________
We represent a newly-formed unit of Independent soliders at the outbreak of the hostilities (prior to Du Khang and Serenity Valley).
First and foremost, remember that this is a fan-based organization, and our first rule is "Show up. March. Have Fun!"

Our inaugural march took place at DragonCon in Atlanta in September of 2007.

We do have a few rules and regulations that must be met in order to be considered as a member, including uniform requirements and weapons requirements. These will be outlined below. Please be sure to read over all the information and confirm that you can meet all of these requirements before applying for membership. We are not trying to keep people out, but we do want to present a united, uniform Battalion of Independent soldiers, and one of the best ways to do this is to look the same.



There are two basic types of uniforms we will be using: Type A and Type B.

Type A will use Mal as a model:



This "uniform" consists of the following:
•Pants with brown stripes up the sides of the legs – please see below for approved merchants.
•An undershirt – black or brown, long-sleeved. Button-ups are acceptable but preferably without a high collar.
•The red vest that the CO has designed. You may either purchase from him or ask for a pattern and fabric swatch.
•The overcoat that the CO has designed. You may either purchase from him or ask for a pattern and fabric swatch.
•Helmet – needed for parade, but other head coverings approved for non-marching appearances (see below).
•Boots – please see below for approved styles and merchants.
•Scarf – Red for enlisted, blue for officers.
•Dark brown belt – 2” is recommended.


The Type B uniform uses Zoe as a model:



This "uniform" consists of the following:
•Pants with brown stripes up the sides of the legs – please see below for approved merchants.
•An undershirt – black or brown, long-sleeved. Button-ups are acceptable but preferably without a high collar.
•The red vest that the CO has designed. You may either purchase from him or ask for a pattern and fabric swatch.
•The "smock" that is worn underneath the red vest. You may either purchase from him or ask for a pattern and fabric swatch.
•Mail sleeves – please see below for approved choices.
•Helmet – needed for parade, but other head coverings approved for non-marching appearances (see below).
•Boots – please see below for approved styles and merchants.
•Scarf – Red for enlisted, blue for officers.
•Dark brown belt – 2” is recommended.


General notes on the uniforms:
•While in all the battle scenes we have seen on screen the uniforms have seen some wear and tear, our unit will not appear that way. DO NOT distress your parade uniform. This pristine uniform is the first uniform we request you have so that you will be able to represent us properly. If you wish to have a ‘battle worn’ look, we ask that you please reserve this for personal appearances and have this as your secondary uniform.

•Sidearms are left up to the individual (pistol and knife--please have them approved by Command before wearing). You DO NOT have to wear a pistol or knife if you do not want to. Note that all knives will need to be peace-bonded for the duration of any appearance you make in uniform.

•Bags and pouches can help complete your outfit. These are also left up to personal choice, but some options are presented below.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


PANTS

These three pants will be the acceptable models. If you have another pair you would like to use, please contact the CO for approval.

http://www.wwmerc.com/cgi-bin/category.cgi?item=CM83&type=store&catego
ry=3930


http://www.blockaderunner.com/Catalog/catpg14.htm

http://jas-townsend.com/product_info.php?cPath=1_4&products_id=461

Any of the above pants will work. It will be necessary to add a dark brown stripe down the sides. An acceptable material for this is grosgrain


VEST

Please contact the CO to purchase or order a pattern, instructions and swatch.



OVERCOAT

Please contact the CO to purchase or order a pattern, instructions and swatch.






SMOCK/UNDERTUNIC

Please contact the CO to purchase or order a pattern, instructions and swatch.






General Overcoat and Smock/Undertunic information:
•Independent Army Patches can be found here: http://www.outtotheblack.com and they will be worn with the triangle pointing up, blue star pointing down.



Any patch with a black star will not be acceptable.

76th Independent Battalion Patch


•Independent Army patch goes on your right shoulder, 76th Battalion patch goes on your left shoulder.


RANK INSIGNIA

On the Type A uniform, the rank insignia is to be worn on the collar.



The rank insignia on the Type B uniform will be centered above the patches on both shoulders:


We will be wearing the US Army ranks, but upside down.

These are the rank equivalents:

E-2 = PVT
E-3 = PFC
CPL = Corporal
E-5 = SGT
E-7 = SFC
1SG = First Sergeant
1LT = Lieutenant

Officers:
http://www.1800nametape.com/army-off.htm#DESERT
Enlisted:
http://www.1800nametape.com/army-enl.htm#DESERT

General Rank Insignia information:
• The 76th uses the sew-on Desert Collar Rank. We do not use metal pins.
• If you are unsure of your rank check the main website or email the CO or XO.
• You'll notice that several ranks have been dropped. It was decided that redundant ranks would be eliminated. Certain ranks that are missing may be reconstituted should the need arise.


MAIL SLEEVES
You may find the instructions here:
http://upstagereview.org/CostumesArticles/Chainmail.pdf



If you plan on constructing your own chainmaille, the pattern is a 6-in-1 pattern and should be sleeves only.
ArtCat will also be offering these for sale.
If purchased from the CO, the Smock/Undertunic will be constructed with attachments that your chainmaille can be fastened to. If you prefer to construct a harness, please keep it simple and smooth so that it does not wrinkle the back of your Smock/Undertunic.


HELMET/HEAD COVERING

Russian helmet:


http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/LEG140-1717-1818.html

US M1 helmet:


These can be found in various surplus stores as well as online. Steel pots are acceptable, NOT kevlar helmets.



Soft head covering links:
http://www.sparklingearth.com/products.asp?category=100005
Skull Cap-Red--Item#203 S:203-1032: (for the Enlisted personnel)
Desert Skull Cap-Navy--Item#202:202-1034 (for the officers, commissioned and non-commissioned)
Desert Skull Cap-Black Air Flow--Item#202:202-2007 (for the Snipers and Demos)

General Helmet/Headcovering information
•A Helmet is required to march in formation.
•Approved flydanas/skullcaps may be worn under your helmet.
•During a convention a helmet is not required unless you are participating in a parade. Otherwise no head covering, beret or an approved flydana may be worn.


BOOTS

Mid-calf or knee high boots in shades of mid to dark brown.


General note on boots:
•Avoid pointed toe boots or overly styled boots. The simpler the style the more uniform you will look compared to the other members.
•Wear your boots sometime before you march in them. It is HIGHLY recommended you do this to wear in the boots and reduce your chance of blisters and chafing.
•Wear your boots with a pair of wool socks. Your local Army/Navy surplus or camping supply should carry them. Cotton or cotton blend socks are not recommended.



SCARF
It has also been decided to use blue scarves for the officers and red for the enlisted. As far as the type of cloth, try for something lightweight, possibly a crepe material. Try to match as closely as possible the colors in the 76th patch for the blue and the vests for the red.


BELTS
We do ask that you try to find a brown belt to wear with your uniform. A 2” belt is recommended for standard holster measurements.

The holsters for your sidearms (if you choose to carry one) do NOT have to match the belt, but it is preferable that they do.

Look around. A brown belt isn't hard to come by, and holsters are relatively easy to find.


MAIN WEAPON

The main weapon of the 76th, as in the series, will be the H&K G36 and it's variants.



EXTRA UNIFORM PIECES

BAGS/PACKS

Links for bags:

http://www.armysurplusworld.com/product.asp?ProductID=1133
http://www.armysurplusworld.com/product.asp?ProductID=7075


General information about patches on bags/packs:
•Please refrain from using the actual 76th patch on uniform pieces other than the coat and smock.
•If you wish to add an Independent Army patch to another piece, please choose only one other piece of your uniform.
•Please try to keep all bags and packs in either leather or a khaki or ‘stonewashed’ color to keep with uniformity.

DOG TAGS

Dogtags can be picked up just about anywhere, and are completely optional, but if you choose to get some, here is the suggested format they should be in.

Line 1: Last name (Can be your real name or a character name you've created)
Line 2: First name, MI (Again, real name or character name.)
Line 3: DOB (Subtract your age from 2511, the Year serenity Valley took place, and either put your month day or make one up)
Line 4: Service Number (Using the 'verse Social Control Number format)
Line 5: Homeworld. There are many to choose from and many places to reference them. (ETW is not a choice)

Example:

LAZARUS,
MIKHAIL D.
DOB 06/22/2486
621,200,1,1984
TITAN




FINISHED UNIFORM

Type A:





Type B:
Complete with ArtCat's mesh sleeves.

Hi all!

I have a few questions. I was wondering about the 76th site. I sent in thing to sign up a while back but nothing ever happened. Any clues? Also, any suggestions on a good place to get boots? I've got a costume in the works but I'm having real trouble finding decent boots that fit my fat girl calves.

Hi Sister!
I would love to go but it looks like it's not going to be in the cards for me this year. Just not enough money to go around.

I'll check all that out! Thanks!

As to the boots thing, I wasn't on here much at all last year (RL did a number on me) so I guess I missed that thread. I like some of the links on the myspace thing for the uniform but I'm also looking for some simple, slip on, or zip up style boots for a general verse style outfit. There's a pic up there but I don't see a link. Any help there?

Hi McNutt!

Were you interested in joining the battalion?

I'm in the north-east US, in PA, west of Philadelphia. We haven't been having too many informal battalion-only gatherings in our area just yet. But I know that it is becoming more and more likely that I will be attending the Shore Leave convention in MD in uniform. I am unsure if my sister (who is also in the battalion) will be attending, but there is some interest from at least one other member.
http://www.shore-leave.com/

I did help out with registration at the Browncoat Ball in uniform and there were two other members of the battalion who attended the Ball when it was here in Philly in November.

PM me with your e-mail address if you need more info. :)

Hello there, 76th!

I posted the message below on the "General Discussions" forum, and somewhere there suggested that you folk might have an answer:
_____
My family and I were at Wondercon in San Francisco today (had a great time!) Amongst the swag we made off with is a set of four Independent (Browncoat)military insignia patches.

All are the familiar green triangle with two yellow stripes and an inverted blue star, but there is also a rank structure, indicated by dark pips in the triangle's corners -- one has no pips at all, the other three have pips that grow progressively darker.

I presume that the darker the pip, the higher the rank, but does anyone know what the actual ranks involved are? I.E., is the sequence "Private, Corporal, Sergeant, Master Sergeant" or "Noncomissioned, Lieutenant (JG), Lieutenant, Captain", or something else?

I understand there is some semi-official source (perhaps one of the visual guides?), but the dealer didn't know which rank was which, nor could he suggest what reference to look in.

Anybody out there in the black got the answer?

____

I've checked out the 76th's home page, and I've seen your uniform specs, so I know you don't use this particular patch as a rank signal. But the dealer was pretty sure that this system was cannonical in some reference somewhere, and you good folks do seem like a good place to trawl for information. If it turns out the dealer was misinformed,I'll still hold onto these as a collector's item, but it'd be nice to know.

Thanks in advance.

My thanks to those on both threads who have tried to help me out. Here's what I've got so far:

1: The Black-Star variant patch w/out corner pips was formerly sold by browncoatpatches.com. The mistake in color was apparently due to bad color register on the screen captures used to design it.

2: The Blue-star patch w/out shoulder pips is sold by Out To The Black Outfitters. This is, I gather, the standard supplier for the 76th.

3: The shoulder-pip variants are from a company called Patches 'n Pins. They include one patch with a gold border.

4. The reference giving the pip-bearing patches canonicity is the Firefly Official Companion Volume Two, but though it pictures them, it apparently doesn't explain rank structure. The pipless blue-star version is also apparently canonical from screen captures.

5: Parenthetically, there also seems to be on-screen reference for the star being worn both point-up and point-down. This is apparently due to a costuming error on set, but which version is the original error is anybody's guess at this point.

Thanks again for your help.

Kayna, I will see what I can find out about you not being approved for the 76th, that shouldn't have happened.

As for the pips on the Independent triangle/blue star patches, from what I have heard it is a detail that never got fully fleshed out. I think they talk about it in one of the visual companions (I think volume 1) as if they planned to do something cool with it but never got around to it. I have seen the different patches, and will pass along your question to someone who might know a little more.

Oh Linda, I am so very sorry for your loss. I am here if you need anyone to talk to, just PM me.

You and your family will be in my prayers and thoughts. You take care of things and don't worry about us. We're here if you need us.

Hon, I don't think you'll be running out of hugs for a long time, if ever.

By the way, are you coming to the "Final" shindig in a couple of weeks? It wouldn't be the same without you there.

Good to see you online Sister. :)

Daisy is mean. She forced me to buy way too much bead stuff and now I'm helping her to make bead jewelry. I'm addicted...

I'm sure we can find you a support group or something for that.

sister, if you can make it, that would be awesome, but if you have other stuff to take care of, we'll understand that too. I might have to borrow a recipe or two from you though if you can't make it.

*hugs sister*
