You could always just take a spare rifle barrel, and/or bit of wire of the appropriate diameter, and have it sticking out of a bit of brush on "clump foliage" glued to a base, since a good sniper who is prone really shouldn't be seen anyway.

Another option would be to do the same from under a tarp, piece of corrugated metal, broken down building wall, etc., etc. too, if in a more urban environment.

Snipers aren't supposed to be seen.

Cool idea Mako.

You could use them as markers for where snipers might be...

Yep, and/or to represent the ones that are still hidden and undetected like they should be, and the others for when they've blown their cover and have been spotted.

:) By Jove, I think he's got it!  :)

I'm going to bung a lump of lichen on a base and save myself a fortune!
Anyway, sniper problem solved, onto the Gimpy sustained fire gubbins...
would I be right in thinking the tripod can be fettled either black or dark green?

Black, at least all the ones I've ever seen have been black.
