Sarcasm aside, here's what I put in it (and then cheated by running them through Picasa).
First is this here Tango Ninja, I went for a scheme that ended up looking like the bad guy from Tron: Legacy, which isn't necessarily a bad look in my opinion. In the original studio colour scheme, the Ninja are all in bright Neon green colours - an interesting juxtaposition with their stealth role I thought - so I wanted to have the same kind 'you shouldn't wear orange if you're trying to not be noticed' kind of vibe to them. The fluff reasons for them being successful in their stealth of course is that they have invisibility fields. More or less.
The second Ninja is one I got from Maelstrom because Maelstrom (as opposed to Wayland) give clear information on how much stock of model X they currently have - thus when two of the models I ordered from Wayland were out of stock (and given full refund, fair do's) I got them from Maelstrom instead.
Here's the Barbie Sniper:
I have two other Ninja set to paint and a green Oniwaban already done, so, yeah I'm doing Power Rangers. If Power Rangers were invisible and used lethal force. They should so do that.
Anyway, many scoff at the mere idea of a sniper ninja, seeing as how the Ninja's high CC skill is entirely wasted as you sit at one end of a fire-lane. In fairness though, CC is extremely risky even for a vanilla-equipped Ninja, who'd be better off shooting at enemies with a Combi-Rifle. Shooting lessens the risk of discovery and gives you 3 dice to kill your enemy with instead of CC's 1.
