Thank you! You may have noticed lots of new photos appearing on the site recently. We've had a fantastic response so far to our call for new photos. The team would like to say a big thanks to everyone who has contributed.
Despite recent troubles the team are still working hard to bring you the most up to date information on authentic and reproduction accessories and to help prevent the scamming of collectors both established and new to the hobby.
The Imperial Gunnery needs your help
Recently the Imperial Gunnery launched a mobile application, giving you a downloadable abbreviated version of the site contents. In an effort to keep the format small and compact a decision was made to crop all photos. This removed corner watermarks on photos. While this was done for sizing and consistency a former contributor felt the dark side was at work. We have since removed the application.
So we need everyone's help! We want to build a new application and update the site without personal watermarks. It will make the sight more sustainable long term. Please go through each category and if you see a weapon watermarked by anyone (except Imperialgunnery of course) we'd love a photo. Just the weapon on a white background would be fantastic. You can Email it to email@example.com.
The quicker we can complete the task the quicker we can relaunch the app and remove TIG from possible issues.
Thank you - The TIG team
