Fallschirmjaeger Sniper

I'm planning on running a big game of Chain of Command at Christmas and one of the platoons involved will be Fallschirmjaeger.  This gave me the excuse to take a razor saw to a spare, rifle-armed figure and make a dug-in sniper unit.

He's a Raventhorpe (large-ish) 20mm figure stuck to a textured 2p piece.  I've added a simple telescopic sight using a small piece of plastic rod.

Very nice!

Looking good.

Cheers, Andy

Needs some foliage so he's invisible from the front

Thanks, guys.

Will, you're probably right. I didn't want to add grass to the base as it represents dug-over earth but a little added vegetation would work.

An effective little conversion.

Cheers, Pete!

Great little conversion. Looking forward to my trip up to Storrs at Christmas.
