Commandos-Marines Sniper

Commandos-Marines Sniper

Postby Counterpane » 07 Jul 2010

Les Commandos-Marines form a major component of France’s Commandement des Opérations Spéciales. This sniper is equipped with the PGM 12.7mm Hecate II sniper rifle.

Image

The figure is in 1/300th scale and is sculpted from green stuff with the rifle, bipod, and telescopic sight made from pieces cut from a broom bristle. The whole element sits on a one penny (UK) coin.

Although it doesn’t show particularly well, the figure is painted in three colour DPM and has a bronze badge on his rifle green beret.

Image

The plan is to use him as an element in a modern French force I’ll one day create for Cold War Commander.

Another go at getting a picture of this guy to work vaguely well.

Some sharper pics would be nice.

But it looks wonderful. You could get in on the 6mm skirmish fun? :P

Nice one! :good: Great to see something in this scale in the build.
Though I'm surprised he's not hiding in the pig pen!

Now there's an idea! I have an Irregular miniatures cart that's going to appear on a GNW Russian command element but some of the smaller 6mm scenic elements would make for interesting sniper or HQ stands for Cold War Commander. Thanks!
