I wouldn't.  Maybe some waring labels or something like that.

Love it mate, had my boxes a while now, might make an effort and get the troop put together and painted some time this year before the second wave arrives!

Regarding the rifle, personally I think it looks fine as is but how about some faded kill markings or some scale camo netting draped over? As steel says though a scratched up bipod would look sweet, that's the way I am gonna go when I paint mine!  :thumbup:

Lovely PJ - but definately needs something to break up the "plainess" of the weapon.

On a barrel that size, there's plenty of room for a kill count to be marked on.
