"Bang Bang - he shot me down"

Blame dave - he doesn't like Sci-fi and said my 40K sniper didn't count! :cray:
so I finished this off... a waffen-SS sniper team (from Kampfgruppe Wotan) somewhere in germany,
spring 1945, waiting for the allies to step foot on german soil...

Sniper is from Warmodelling/fantassin winter range, while the spotter is from
Kelly's Heroes late war germans, both have had new heads from battlefield doners :grin:

Cracking stuff Rob - lovely composition and so many brilliant little touches in there - not just the painting, but the extra detailing on the figures, the ground work and that calvary - fantastic!

I know what you mean andy, but if all of the snipers in the build were
100% accurate, we'd not see any figures at all and they'd all be like
johan's!
I did something similar with the sniper in my Britannia group build,
who was lying down... more realistic, but not as an attractive
composition! But most rules don't place sniper figures on table...

As I said in the WIP this was intended to become an FO base...
