'Sport' from DaveX: DEVGRU Sniper Team

For this bonus round I had to think what in my collection would constitute "sport".  Shooting is a sport right??? They do this at the Olympics right?  They also do this within the Military and compete right?  What about the two way firing range?  I have left it open to interpretation!

I present my 20mm Elhiem Figures DEVGRU Sniper Team.  What is DEVGRU? One just needs to punch this into Google and it will return...

Test The United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG), commonly known as DEVGRU or SEAL Team Six, is the U.S. Navy component of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). It is often referred to within JSOC as Task Force Blue.

So there you go! You learn something new everyday. Now I chose to use their desert cam variant of the many shades of Camo they wear.  It is quite difficult to recreate this in 20mm so I gave it my best crack.

Some people will notice (I didnt pick this up) that the pose of the sniper is rather awkward and unnatural.  I say to that he is setting himself up for the shot! This aside I think the model looks great!
Smile for the Camera
