Postby Gunbird » 29 Jun 2010

A sniper is a highly trained marksman who shoots targets from concealed positions or distances exceeding the capabilities of regular personnel. Snipers typically have specialized training and distinct high-precision rifles.

In addition to marksmanship, military snipers are also trained in camouflage, field craft, infiltration, reconnaissance and observation. Snipers are especially effective when deployed within the urban terrain of urban warfare, or jungle terrain of jungle warfare.

I think I can remember having seen the photo you have based your sniper on somewhere around here at the Guild :scratch:

Great work Johan! :clapping:
I can spot a hint of a barrel in two of them - but are you going to use them as dummy markers for possible positions of snipers?

Scream already guessed it, I based it off this picture:
Image

And mine looks like this:
Image

I wasn't quite sure what to enter for the contest, I have a few more casualty ideas I want to flesh out later but those are more suited for a Moviescene theme or something, and plain snipers have been posted a plenty now. Something with a suit would be nice, but I found nothing in my spares boxes so I didn't quite know what to do anymore (ordering something would become a last minute job, and I don't have that much time to begin with). Good thing I remembered the picture of the sniper on top. Thats how I see snipers anyway.....well, I don't see them, and that is the point ;)

I took 3 plain wooden bases, some tissue paper and some aluminium and brass tubing and rod. And about a gallon of superglue :lol:
At first, it looked like this:
Image
But once it was painted it looks like this:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

I also added a spotter:
Image
Image
Image
Image

And a marker that could be something, or maybe not :grin:
Image
Image
Image
Image

In the end, I managed to find a good way to make rubbish bin bags and plastic soda bottles with nothing more then a few offcuts and scraps. When I'll do another set I might make the colours less muted, but for stuff dumped on the side of the road/ in a building in a dusty area these are ok :thumbsup: These should make excellent markers in a game or just piles of trash along the road, or in a backyard, so I will whip up some more eventually.

Another KISS project done and dusted (pun intended ;) ), hope you like. Enjoy.

A clever idea - and a smart way to put it into a 20mm miniature-diorama. Excellent. Really! :thumbsup:
