More Ultramarines, hot on the heels of the tanks. This time I’ve done a set of the plastic sniper scouts, which I got as part of the strike force.
Scouts have small shoulder pads, and I didn’t have the small-U decals. I did have some from the old space marine bike set that had a the U in a circle, so I just trimmed off the circle. I think it works pretty well.
I decided to use the pointing hand on the sergeant, since just about everybody puts on the other hand. I should have put the scope back on his rifle, though.
I was pleased to see that it had parts to either do the missile launcher guy or another sniper — including the torso and head. All you need to do to field both is to find some legs and a base. As luck would have it, I have some scout legs in my bits box.
I somehow missed that the crouching guy had his own torso, complete with cloak that goes around the leg. I noticed after basecoating, and was able to correct it without any real problems.
