Modern USMC: Sniper team during the battle for Skira

The modern USMC sniper team shown above will be part of the coming project for 2011: The Dragon Rises.
It's waiting in a tiny foxhole in which the woodland MARPAT uniforms blend perfectly. The miniatures are RH Liberation modern 1990 range sniper with Barrett .50cal Anti-Material-Rifle and a kneeling soldier with M16A4 and aimpoint sights from the 2003+ range of miniatures. The foxhole was created using "wooden" boards from Italeri's battlefield accessoires, sand, green stuff (to make a berm) and two HO scale trees.
In The Dragon Rises the USMC and modern Russian forces will have to fight the Chinese PLA in order to restore peace and Russia's claim over the island of Skira (some will have already guessed it: the idea is actually based upon a PC/console game). More on that topic later this year and in 2011.
