Scout Sniper, rifles?

Recommended Posts

I was looking through various weapons and reading "Republic Commandos" 'Triple Zero' decided to look into a Verpine sniper rifle (http://www.sharecg.com/v/50970/related/11/Poser/Verpine-Shatter/-Sniper-Rifle)

by modifying a (http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=5565).

Looking into a robe/cloak, Mando view finder on the side of the helmet of some type also maybe. I have at least 6 months to play around with ideas and come up with something viable, 501st approved and hopefully original and inspirational.

I'm still in the planning phase and months out from completing anything. Did receive a welcome packet so as soon as uniform is complete, will be submitted for approval, just toying with ideas for the rest of it. Feel free to throw any ideas, suggestions and comments at me or my way. Since I am new to all this, I'm open to suggestion from veterans and members

A lot of the Imperial Scout Troopers (Pathfinders) use the DLT-19 which is based on a German MG-34. It was also used by the Sandtroopers in ANH. I utilize this one for my TB Biker Scout costume. I've also got a modified version with an added scope, making it sniper worthy.

Yup, Jim's on the money with this one.


The Scout long rifle has been established as the E-11s, A modified version of the standard Blastech E-11, which sacrificed capacity for long range power.


This is commonly pictured as the DLT-19 with a scope on the top.


Some of us have made a custom E11s based on the basic E11, but tying in some of the details from the DLT-19.




Although as the background information for the Storm Commando's is that they are trained in all manner of weaponry, from the standard galactic issue through to the more 'exotic'.

So if your local GML allows it, then the choice is yours as to what you field.

Where / How do I find a DLT-19 ? What if I went and made or procured a 'exotic' sniper rifle? Would have to have GML approve it befor hand I suppose. I have several ideas floating around and still have six months of planning in the works.

What do you think?

DLT-19's are basically MG-34/42's.


I don't how it works over in the states regarding de-act's, but that's one possibility.


There are plenty of makers of resin casts, such as hyperfirm, I'm sure someone stateside can point you in the direction of more.



If you make anything your GML will have to 'clear' it before you can use it.


Some people have used the Nerf CS6 long rifle as a basis for their Verpine builds, and they look pretty sweet.
