Stormtroopers of the New Empire by Shabazik Stormtroopers of the New Empire by Shabazik


Old drawing from 2009: For long, I had obsessed about Star Wars Imperial Stormtroopers. So as well, for long, I had thought of female stormtroopers –and the thought of female clontroopers was as well one of the many origins of my “shiks” artificial human/clones.

In this interest, more than once I looked in internet and galleries and such for “female stormtroopers”, “femtroopers” and other various terms, being common finding in these pics the stripperific variants of a female Imperial Stormptrooper.

But it was in 2009 when, looking for some Action figures of Star Wars online, I found a pack of stormtroopers, that included an action figure of a female stormtrooper.

At first I was: what? Is this a custom?
But then I learned these action figures where related to a Star Wars comic –based in an era about… what? 200 years after the battle of Yavin? Or it was 200 years after Endor? Well, the blowing up of one or other Death Star, anyway- where was featured a “New Empire”. And in this New Empire, for I guess either manpower shortage –or to show in Public Relations they are a different empire- the ranks in the Stormtroopers opened to Aliens… and women!

Now, due the amount of merchadising and derived artwork related to Star Wars I no longer can tell what is cannon from what it isn’t. But this comic –and the apparition of female stormtroopers in a more or less official Star Wars media- triggered in me a spur of drawings Stormtroopers of all kinds. Human male and female, but as well, of several Star Wars alien races (twi’lek, Gungan, etc, etc).

I have no idea where most of these are, but I found and scanned a couple of these 2009 drawings of Stormtroopers done in the corner of one of my notebooks, while on classes! XD

Do you know how frickin long I've been searching for a female stormtrooper that is not over-exaggerated with the -ahem- qualities? ~ C

Cool female storm troopers and i think you are talking about the star wars comics set in the legacy era set about 130 years after the battle of yavin.

Actually the empire used both genders for there empire, the same with the rebel alliance. You just don't see it in the original series, since George Lucas was some what a sexist. In the newer Star Wars related games and such both genders are used for a wide variety of things.

I wouldn't say that he was somewhat sexist, but put it on the context, which is important: is not the same the 70's and 80's as context and interpretation of the roles of genders than the second decade of the XXI century!

but many thanks!

Your female Stormtrooper is very attractive in her armor.  The bottom and top left pictures are my favorite.  Her armor is "authentic" but still shaped realistically feminine.  Her expression is serious because she is a dedicated soldier of the Empire.  I am also a big fan of Stormtroopers.  They were my favorite characters in Star Wars.  My girls are also very much inspired by Stormtroopers.  They are a classic henchperson character.

Thanks!

Something I don't like in the representation in many "femtroopers" is how they do it "stripperific". One thing in my opinion is to design from principle something to be like that, but the logic would be, if there are female stormtroopers, to have a similar armor and equipment, while adjusted to the female soldiers!

I TOTALLY agree!  They look sexier in full armor, so long as the armor is shaped to fit them.

You should read the book "Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare". There is a nice short story included of a female Stormtrooper called Isila Drutch. In this story she even complains about certain pin up posters, showing sexy femtroopers with a bare midriff. While "real" female Stormtroopers would wear the same armor as male Stormtroopers.

"the ranks in the Stormtroopers opened to Aliens… and women!"  the best line I've heard all day!  I can't help but think of some strange alternate timeline of '50's era sensibilities lasting for decades or centuries.  Aliens come to settle on earth, animals and new humanoid races are bioengineered to be intelligent or to exist, dinosaur folk are discovered beneath the ground, androids walk amongst us as more or less equals...

 

All get to join the militaries of a new, multi-species world.  At the very end, lawmakers rule that: "Yes, women must be allowed to serve as well."  LoL

 

Always fun seeing cute girls inside the techno armor.  That is a lot of armor for what seems to be pretty useless!  Storm troopers wear so much so as to be in their own artificial environment--but they fall down when shot just like anyone else!

 

There are advantages, as those eyes are cameras that see better than human eyes.  A more comfortable artificial environment?  And I suppose that a storm trooper could survive depressurization on a space ship...?

 

But, of course, a George Lucas theme is technology run amok deprives humans of their humanity.  In the case of storm troopers being separate from their world, becoming akin to robots following orders...?

 

Your pic has the three panels, the top two has a storm trooper girl in a sci-fi space environment in one, the other has a storm trooper in a guerrilla type combat setting, covering up most of all that white...  Very beautiful scene though, in the bottom panel.  With the sci-fi installation to the right, but the natural vista of a countryside in the background, with the two storm troopers, one a cute girl with her helmet off, fighting--something.

XD Thanks!

For me, even before seeing star wars movies themselves, I thought -and discussed with some childhood friends as child during school- that there SHOULD be female stormtroopers in the empire!

-and I was surprised it wasn't the case! XD-
