Rebel Grot Snipers: 4th and 5th model ready for paint!

Hello all,

I don’t have much to say this morning, but I do have pictures.  I’ve finished modelling the last two snipers for my counts as Ratling Snipers unit:

Here’s a low-quality group shot:

It feels good to have this unit finished, now I can’t wait to paint it!  I’m on my way off to a very busy week so I don’t expect any progress until next week.  The week after that should be a frenzy of productivity though…

    Very nice work! I’m jealous of your ability to chop up a model and rebuild it nearly from scratch.
    I don’t think I ever asked, but how do you cut your plastic card and tubing? Do you use a miter box or anything for the tube cuts?

    • Thanks! It took me a lot of time to be comfortable chopping up a model but the more I do it the more I enjoy doing it.
      I do use a miter box for a lot of my cuts. For these ones I scored the rod and snapped it.

    I know they seem like simple little weirdo models, but i’m really blown away by what you’ve done. Some seriously nice reconstruction here! Can’t wait to see them painted up.

    • Thanks! A Grot army is all about little wierdo models and they’re a blast to work on. I am really looking forward to painting these guys!

  • Great job!

    The Grot with the cape, where did that studded piece behind his head come from? It’s a cool touch.

    • Thanks. That is part of the original model and I thought it would look cooler with the cape coming from under it. I used the same model for one of my infantry grots, you can see more of the original model on that one:
