Default Sniper Drones

Yup, these boys are finally done.
They've been hanging around since Christmas.

So, here they are, another key unit in my Urban Cadre.

Front


Top Left


Right


Trying to look badass


Yes, they're blurry. Put up with it, my camera ain't the greatest. (neither are my hands for that matter :-\)
PS: Those FW in the background are half of my first FW squad for this army, and should be done soon-ish (which means ~1 week). :P

EDIT: One moment while I try and fix that infernal Photobucket account. >
EDIT: Muahaha, fixd. Take that ebil Photobucket coding.

They look good from what I can see, but as you said yourself, it's not too clear. I can't honestly see if it's grey or blue...
But, even though I can't see the colour, it's still clear that they're nicely painted. What is it the controller is standing on? It doesn't look like an average base...
PS: groovy wallpaper :P

1. It's grey.
2. Thank you.
3. I did not pick that wallpaper, the room came with it. :P
4. Two layers of 5mm foamcore/foamboard and a caved up bit of heavy cardboard.

1: Looks nice, is your entire army grey? Or just these, because they're special?
2: You're welcome
3: Don't worry about it, every day is a chance to paint it over, or to simply torch it
4: So it should look like he's on ...? A rock? A platform?
4b: Maybe you should, I'll enjoy reading it.

@Ineluki
1. Yes, because they're an urban combat cadre.
4a. A sort of basilica/flagstone covered area.
4b. When I finish those FW in the background and then make some more. (why so many FW, why? :P)

@ShasO Venom: thanks, and see 1. above.
