|"So many FuturKommers to choose from...."|
This weekend was positive for sports, with one Jets game for the NHL and the conference finals for the NFL, perfect background noise to add a few more odds and ends. Up first is this 28mm Cadian sniper model from GW, which I have painted Gün Schwarm colours.
|You would be surprised at how bent this gun managed to get in the blister...|
|Camouflage tarp, unlikely to help in the urban settings where this guy will see 3/4 of his action, but screw that - I liked this pattern better|
|"Boy, this rock sure is handy for lining up shots...."|
|"Regular" sniper on left - a pretty rough conversion. The new model looks like the real deal...|
I see the "regular" dude as less of a sniper, and more as a marksman with a sniper rifle who is still attached to a regular fireteam. This guy with the heavier rifle would be more of the detached, hide-in-a-pit-somewhere-waiting-for-the-shot type of sniper, ready to make life even more miserable for the hapless conscripts of FuturKom.
It's always neat to have the snipers operate in teams - the plastic GW Cadians do not replicate the Kasrkin armoured plates, but perhaps with some very minor conversion, I can kit bash a spotter-type model for this guy. I'll check the bits pile tonight...
