If I was writing a Sniper Scenario I’d have a clock tower (or Eiffel tower) where Line of Sight is drawn, and not place/move an individual model around the table - Snipers are known to sit in cover, where they have a good view of everything, and pick targets off.
Except that if the specific terrain setup allows for every fighter to be out of sight all the time then the sniper becomes unplayable. For example if you position them very high but ground level is fun and gives too many opportunities to stay out of sight. The feeling I was going for is of constantly weighing up risks and diving between cover. If they stay still then they become more predictable, thus pressuring that decision making less.

Perhaps imagine them on a helicopter or having a teleporter and are hunting people as opposed to protecting an area. My inspiration is the anime Desert Punk. Specifically the 4th or 5th episode when he is being challenged by sniper for fame.

Haven’t found the Sniper Rifle I have been looking for, but the gathering of Radio Gubbins is going well :)
You did!! Now I just want to know what “Mad Legs Jakob” looks like!!!
and was he called "Mad Legs Jakob" before being shot or was being sniped the source of the name?

Mad Legs Jakob was an Orlock ganger of a friend of mine. I think he had good BS advances. He suffered a leg wound in both legs, and with some campaign jiggery-pokery/not entirely honest post battle bookkeeping, ended up with two bionic legs. He decided the legs would be spidery like the baddie from Wild Wild West, it being the hot new movie at the time. Hence, Mad Legs! The model was just an original plastic ganger with some spider legs made from cocktail sticks (classic!). I don't think he was ever painted. Perhaps I'll make a modern version of him!
The Yaklings are out of school, so free time is rarer now…
Try to get a minimum entry according to the rules. (Painted with 3 colours?) Then if you get more time you can make a new photo of your mini. If you dont find the time to do more then at least you have a photo on hand to post the last day.
