Although not on the official Table of Organization, in WW2 each infantry battalion headquarters formed a Scout and Sniper Platoon, commanded by the Intelligence Officer. Although these units did most of their work before the battle, patrolling, intelligence gathering, harassing the enemy and providing guides to bring the rifle companies to their start lines, some sniper teams to support my squaddies when on the defence would be quite appropriate.
I used 1 1/4 inch fender washers for the bases to set them apart from my rifle stands. This is also my first use of tufts on the bases. I found them as simple to use as the directions say they are, and they give a nice dimension to an otherwise pretty flat base. Plus they help the snipers hide and add to the air of stealth around the vignette.
