Generic Imperial Sniper
« on: November 25, 2005, 02:42:38 PM »
I was wondering if there is any chance of a generic Imperial Sniper model in the future?

What do you need, Phil?  I can convert one up for you...you want pan hat? Beret?

You don't likr the Trencher Sniper?
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

Just take a trencher sniper and paint him white with "sniper" on one shoulder pad and a barcode on the other.

Dave i'd like to get 2 snipers made from the new blood beret models. I'am going to make a squad of Dunsim Hunters. And no I dont want to use the trencher sniper (destroyer LMG). I personally dont like that model as a sniper. Thanks Phil

Well he would be cheaper then a normal sniper, since he's the "No Frills" Sniper.  (Maybe "No Frills" is just a Pathmark thing...)

I'll see what I can do...the Trencher does look like he's carrying the Destroyer, not the Assailant.

If you can get your hands on an old style GW plastic lasgun and one of the scope bits then you have everything you need. Cut the weapon barrel down and then dremel a small hole. Then make a peg on the end of the old lasgun and assemble. then attach a scope and viola - instant sniper.

I'll post pics of the WIP.  So far, it looks good.  The Assailant is very similar to the Invader - remove the grenade clip, under barrel, and the front iron sights, shorten the clip a little, and lengthen the rifle barrel then add a cool scope.  You'll have a Dunsim Hunter sniper with Assailant Sniper Rifle.

I am using one of the Blood Beret (new) troopers in hipshot stance.  That way, I don't need to worry about the stock as it is hidden under the models' right arm.

First pics tomorrow, I promise.

for my Dunsirn snipers, I took the Blood Beret that has the gun p to his face in firing position, cut the tip of the barrell off, used a pin vise, and made an extended barrell with a craft nail that sticks out about 1/4" from the end of the gun.

this is just long enough to make it obvious from the rest of the squad.

he is...my Trencher sniper was still packaged from when I bought it in 1998...

the package said Imperial Trencher w/LMG...

not that I'm complaining...the Assailant is much better than the Destroyer...

Why do the Imperial weapons just sound like they want to hurt something?  Invader, Assailant, Destroyer,  Jimmy Dean Pork-Sausage Repeater, Agressor, Mandible?  At least they have a good Marketing department.
