Ideas for a sniper type of army

Hey guys I was wanting to do a sniper type of empire army. What would be the best way of doing this? I have some ideas. Like using hockland long rifles and great cannons. I will post an army list later.

If you are going for snipers surely you should have an engineer in there. For one its another hochland and fluff wise, well someone has to make and repair those guns.

I have had some bad luck with volly guns. They tend to blow up. I like them they just do not like me.

remember though that snipers are not just long ranged killers, they are also skilled at ambush , hiding away, taking out enemy commanders etc.. so cannons , volley guns etc wouldn`t really fit along with knights, pistoliers or flagellants.

TBH the only armies i think can achieve a sniper theme are dwarves and certainly wood elves, maybe a high / dark elf force featuring shadow warriors / shades

but dont be put off, making a themed army is always fun and it would be great to see some empire handgunners with cloaks etc made out of GS or spareparts

Empire Archers can be upgraded to huntsmen. Which also gives them the scout ability. Thanks for all of the imput.

He will blow them up

The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.
