Snipe Clean Surface

There’s something about snipers which a lot of modellers and gamers really like, the Guild Wargamers forum have even had a competition recently with some very interesting results. I didn’t hear about this until it was looking for votes, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t had a couple of snipers pass along my paint table recently. Above is Eureka’s rather special Marine Recon sniper with a Barrett fifty, although I’ve painted him more as SAS special forces as I don’t really play yanks.

This is Old Glory UK Miniatures prone sniper in resin, which I’ve decided needed a decent ghillie suit just to represent the professional brilliance of UK forces.The grass is a mix of the old railway modelling marshy type stuff, a big bag for pennies, and the finer tufts you can get in tiny packages for way too much cash.

I’ve included this second shot to make it just a mite clearer where the figure actually is. Can you see it?
