    I just love the potential of a carbonite terra cotta army of an ancient supersoldier army waking from a 10,000-year slumber to throw a wrench into the FO-Resistance conflict. And the fact that there is an unknown Sith among them in the Legends material adds a bit of mystery to it all.

    If that rumor/leak turns out to be true then that would be a good reworking of source material sort of like how Marvel uses their wealth of stories. If it isn't true, then the source of the rumor did the same thing to make it obscure yet plausible by using lesser-known Legends.

    Also the Sith holocron/Star chart idea fits with the maguffin idea that JJ loves to use. They are all searching for this weapon that could tip the balance in the conflict. It almost feels like a Star Wars version of an Indiana Jones story. We've seen a lot of things in new Canon about archaeology, ancient beings, weapons from bygone eras, and lost droid armies. Even the search for Luke and the underlying story in the Thrawn novels has involved rare and fought-over navigation tools like the map in TFA and the Chiss girls in Thrawn.

    I'm hoping for Sith Trooper allegiance to none other than (emperor). But that may be a little too linear. There could be a twist.

    Stealthest uniform ever for soldiers.

    Wearing red on a battlefield isn't the best idea ever except if you fight on lava.

    White isn't exactly the most practical color, either.
    It's more about shock and awe than tactical practicality. To each their own at the end of the day, but this isn't the worst thing we've seen.

    On Hoth it was good.

    Red is the absolute color you don't use on Battlefield, it is meant to be seen like ... firefighters for example.

    Ah, penny in the air.
    White works well in snow because it works as camouflage, yes, absolutely. Yet does white work well in as many other environments? More than red, to be sure! Haha. But you hit it right on the head when you said red is meant to be seen.
    Star Wars isn't about entirely practical uniforms, it's about looking cool. The white armor works because it is uniform and frightening en masse. Likewise, the red would be just as exciting (for us the audience) and terrifying (for the characters). It isn't supposed to be tactical in a real world setting.

    Well, maybe they won't be used on a battlefield though ... They're like the red guards of the emperors.
