Rebel Grot Sniper Conversions: 3 ready for paint

Hello all,
I’m still plugging away at the counts as Ratling Snipers squad for my Rebel Grots.  I was out of town on business for most of last week so I haven’t made as much progress as I’d like but I’m happy with what I have managed.  Three of the five are ready for paint.

  • snipers 002snipers 003I sculpted new fingers and thumb on this guy’s left hand as well as a new thumb on his right hand.  His left hand came out a little bigger than ideal.  I think it would have been better just to sculpt an entire hand from scratch rather than working off an existing one.  I think it will look pretty good once it’s painted even if it is a tad awkward.  I like the overall pose.

That leaves me two more to finish.  I hope to get them wrapped up in the next couple of days so I can move on to the tanks I need to wrap up this army.  The week before the Standoff is going to be a frenzy of painting!

The big hand is just evolution! It was needed as a sniper. It looks great regardless; they all do.
