As an addition to my Imperial Guard forces for Warhammer 40k I painted up a small squad of Ratling snipers. With these specialist troops being dispatched to war zones and assigned to regiments as needed, I will probably use them both for my Mordians and Praetorians.
The figures are the second incarnation of this troop type I believe, released ca. 1995 and sculpted by Alan Perry.
For their colour scheme I took inspiration from Sharpe’s Rifles, since both their uniforms and background make a good fit. Each sniper is quite a character in his own right.
As a nod to the Halfling archetype, all troopers carry large satchels stuffed with provisions.
