A Vietnam War lego sniper team that I made using pieces from the new lego Army Men on Patrol set. I hope you enjoy and like it!
About this creation
Here are the two members of the sniper team.
The spotter of the two man sniper team. He carries a revolver, a binocular, and a knife for stealth kills if necessary.
He also carries a portable radio to call in air-strikes or call in a evac.
Here is the sniper.
He carries a satchel and also has a knife for stealth kills or for hand-to-hand combat if it comes to that.
The sniper rifle design that I got from Eturior. The only difference is that I used two lego hooks for the bipod.
The sniper team presented with only a white background. I'll be using this picture on a new YouTube video that I will make and upload soon.
And here is the finally picture of this MOC. I just wanted to show off my new lego set that I recently bought ;) I was quite surprised that 2 rifles, 2 radios and 2 binoculars came with it! See you guys next time!

Wowwwww! This is sweet! I made a sniper rifle very similar to that except I just used the piece to make the scope and then a gray hand to represent the ammunition cartridge. Your bi-pod idea however is wicked! I also really like that radio design! I've been trying to figure out how to make something like that but couldn't find the inspiration - I think you've done just that though. I would love it if you could check out my most recently uploaded MOC's. Thanks and keep up the excellent work man!
Ah Ghostman you don't dissapoint. The dense foliage gives great atmosphere, the figs look good, the sniper is again a clever use for a TLC rifle and the frog is here! Like half of your comments below I picked up those Toy Story soldiers (2 sets so far) and i'm building right now, but it's not straight forward soldiers... Good stuff again from you sir.

that is awesome i have not seen many vietnam here. you should make a series about the soldiers here.
Yeah that's the main reason I bought the clone turbo tank too ;). But if you desperately want one, you can always buy from bricklink. Sometimes I just search for interesting body parts there, and whenever I need to order much pieces I buy those interesting parts too. ~M
Thanks for credits! I've been thinking about buying that set, and painting the helmets and guns gray, but haven't decided yet, because those other parts are pretty useless for me. Nice figs, Vietnam war is probably the only theme that is good with green figs, in my opinion.
Perfect use for those helmets! I like the minifigs, great choice for the faces. Do you have this torso?: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=973pb373c01. I think it'll look nice with the helmets. Btw, I've seen the sniper rifle before, also with hooks, but I can't find the link. Still great sniper. Anyways, sweet Sniper team and good presentatio to! ~M
