Biker Scout Troopers

Scout troopers wore specially modified lightweight armor with greater flexibility than standard stormtrooper armor, and often used light repulsorlift vehicles, such as the 74-Z speeder bike, in the course of their duties, earning them the nickname "biker scouts".Scout troopers operated in groups of two or four, called lancers and were led by a sergeant.

Due to their light weapon loadouts, scout troopers rarely engaged in heavy combat and instead focused more on surveying areas, finding enemy positions and on some occasions, infiltrating enemy lines and performing sabotage missions. They were ordered to retreat in the event of possible combat situations and alert regular stormtroopers.

Scout Troopers also took the role of Snipers or Designated Marksmen, due to their ability to see over very far ranges. They often targeted important enemies to conserve their ammunition, as they could only carry a limited amount as to not hinder their mobility. Throughout the Galactic Civil War, Scout Troopers gained a reputation of being highly lethal marksmen, killing targets at extreme ranges with extreme accuracy.

The term egg man was sometimes used by the Rebel Alliance for scout troopers.

Some scout troopers were picked to train and become the elite Storm commandos

Biker Scout Soft Armor
Note: slightly different from stormtrooper armor because, in addition to having an undersuit and hard plastic armor, there are portions of what is call "soft armor".  This includes the boots, gloves, undersuit and the cummerbund (A diaper like with the pouches that goes around the lower abdomen).

Biker Scout Boots

Some reference photos for the screen used Biker Scout Boots. The original boot base is a Sierra Sneakers hiking boots.

 

 

As the original base boots are no longer in existence, Look for something similar that would look good, that would

accept the vinyl covering and have a somewhat beige/gum colored sole.

Many people use simple work boots with a plain sole such as this

This sole can then be cut with razor knives or a Dremel to look similar to the screen used sole before applying the vinyl.

Thanks! Go out to David "TB3627" for above info and Boot pictures.
