Sculpt Polls! 15. Omnicron Snipers

Next is the deadly Omnicron Snipers.


(Answers Left to Right)
1. Pistol Whip
2. Gun in Air
3. Headshot!

To me this squads sculpt leaves a lot of room for questioning. Like what does the blue dot on their chest do? And what about the gray V-shaped object on their back? Any speculation on this would be nice.

As for the sculpts they all have very similar basis. Each one has a tiny variant in their paint job but not enough to warrant an entirely different perspective. Since they are all so similar, I would have to go with Headshot! since he is the only one in a firing pose.

Who is the favorite of these precise snipers? Also any speculation is welcome.

I'm going for the "Gun In Air" option. To me it looks as if he just shot somebody and the recoil of the gun is bouncing back in a wild, yet controlled, manner.

Maybe the gray "V"s are antennae?

It could be. It makes sense at least. I'm thinking it might be some sort of targeting device too. Who knows!

I've always thought they resembled jet packs. If they indeed are jet packs, they're not very functional.

I always thought that's how they appeared, but the lack of a a flying ability nullifies that.

Re: Sculpt Polls! 15. Omnicron Snipers

Metal bars for use in storage. Like how battle droids in star wars curl up to fit in the transports, these guys curl up and are hung on a rack with those bars. That's my guess.

As I've previously mentioned, I'm a sucker for the firing poses so I can aim that at the unsuspecting enemy. Headshot!

Re: Sculpt Polls! 15. Omnicron Snipers

Gun in air is a cool pose, but headshot is too. It is the clear look of control that cinches my vote for Gun in Air.

Re: Sculpt Polls! 15. Omnicron Snipers

For some reason I've always liked whip lash, headshot was a close second though.

Maybe the V is hollow on the inside and is used for storing extra clips.
