    That camo paint scheme looks pretty cool for a sniper. I would look at lots of different types of camo used by militaries and mimic the way they do it. The custom chest armor is interesting, I've never seen it done like that. Is it one piece? Typically the chest and abdomen are separate to allow mobility. Oh they look layered...sorry the pictures are small and hard to see. Yeah, I think that will come out looking really cool, nice job!

    What helmet is that or did you build one from scratch? I'm still on the drawing board, the bucket seems the hardest part.

    I really like the custom armor, As for the camo earth tones are the way to go. I happen to be an ARMY Sniper, You just want to make sure you break up the pattern. You thinking about making a ghillie suit at all or any wraps to help break up your shape? just food for thought. anyways just have fun with it. Great start.

    That I'm pretty sure is a cast/molded helmet, its the best way to go, cos your right self build buckets are a bi*ch to make, I tried making 2, though the were shaped right, the finish never came out machine made looking, no matter how much Bondo and sanding I appied, so did the math and realised buying a bucket was cheaper than the build.

    Currently doing a sniper myself, so will watch with interest how this turns out

    Nice choice of colours, but I'm not a fan of that paint pattern you have on there.

    And PunisherFett has a good point adding wraps to imitate a ghillie suit would be really interesting for a Mando-sniper.

    Awesome job so far. I was thinking of a short cape with a hood, made of very rough fabric. It could be worn down or up. The camo is the fun part. I was thinking of Clone Commander Gree's camo pattern.
