I was tempted to call the post Space Marine Scout Scout, but that would just be silly. Anyway, here he is. Number three in my little recon patrol. He's the man out front, scoping out the mission and spotting the dangers. He should be fairly fool-proof, between the scope and the night vision goggles and the binoculars!
A bit of conversion work that's difficult to see. His left arm was originally holding a sniper's rifle (similar to the figure in the bottom picture). I had to carve away the rifle and rotate the arm to hold the binoculars in this way. Making this little team showed me how limited the available scout poses are, compared to many other GW models. You have to do a bit of work to make something distinctive and interesting.
As a pointman, he deserves some cammo (really, everyone ought to have it, but the poses for those figures are not varied). The other nice thing about the cammo is one less Lamenter shoulder pad to paint! Unfortunately, it's back to the checks and love hearts for number four.
And here he is with his mates. One to go!
