6MMRPC Week One: Fallschirmjäger Sniper

I don't have much to show this week butI consider it a victory.  The store down in El Paso was hosting a V4 event last weekend and I was determined to paint at least this one stand so I could try something new.  He came out pretty good and I was able to dress up the base to match the rest of the army which is now four or five years old.

The figure is from Battlefront, probably from the old Festungskompanie box set from a decade ago.  The base is also from Battlefront's Urban Rubble set.
I bulked up the base with a mix of ballast, stones, and balsa scraps.
Obligatory WIP shot!
It's a small start, but I painted something!

  2. Elaborate bases are lots of fun for FOW snipers. Nice start to the challenge.

    1. Thanks. This is the first sniper I've tried, never really use them but wanted to see what they do in V4.

  3. I had a lot of fun when I worked on my Commonwealth snipers.

    This chap looks cool, solo, deadly, no need for a spotter. Fear him.
