Default Space Marine Scout Sniper Spure

Does anybody have the new Space Marine Scout Snipers?

Is it possible to arm all five with sniper rifles, or does one have to have a missle launcher?

Can you mix and match with the regular scouts?

It is possible to arm all 5 scouts with sniper rifles.

If you want to mix with the other plastic scouts you will have to do some cutting in the arms.

Are they easier to put together then the nightmarish standard scouts?

Uh...perhaps a little easier I suppose, what with the hands being attached to the rifles and the torsos being one part, but there's not really much in it. Are you talking about the plastic scouts boxed set? They were never really very hard to put together either...no harder than marines. :huh:

The new multi-part plastic scouts yeah. And they were nightmarish to put together, and I've seen several complaints... maybe some people just have a knack for putting them together. Had been hoping the new plastic scouts would be somewhat more satisfying.

I suppose shoulder pads cover a multitude of sins, I found I could do much more with Space Marine arms because I knew I could cover up any glaring gaps or green stuff hash-ups with the pauldron. Is it the arms that are causing you problems? If so, you should find the snipers much easier, as the upper arms come attached to the torsos, you just glue the rifles onto the arms (the forearms and hands are attached to the rifles).

Or you could just learn the basics of sculpting?

What's sculpting got to do with putting scouts together? :-\

Bad temper...so me and sculpting/knives to fit things together has always been a very bad idea >-> there's many a hole in my door where modelling knives have gone.

Anyway, glad to hear the sniper scouts are easier.
