Here’s a sniper I recently finished for my Haqqislam army. I’ve already tried painting this model twice and I was having the hardest time working out the color scheme. I considered scrapping the project and leaving it in hobby limbo; never to feel the unnatural glow of game store, fluorescent lighting.
After trying a few “outfits” on him (including mostly khaki and mostly black) I went with this version. It’s not very camouflage (like his abilities suggest) but I didn’t want to make him look like a cliché sniper. This version looks good with the rest of my Haqqislam color scheme and, thanks to the extra use of brown, stand out from a distance.
As much as I hated painting this model, I’m pretty satisfied with the final result. Which is the case with most of my favorite models; the longer and more frustrating the process, the sweeter the reward. I read that one on a fortune cookie. Your Lucky numbers are 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42.
