Assembling the Panzergrenadier Platoon (GBX169)

All Flames Of War infantry and guns are supplied with appropriate bases. Assemble your infantry teams by gluing the figures into the holes on a base of the right size. Plastic glue is recommended for this but super glue will work as well.

There are usually several figures with each type of weapon, so you can create variety in your teams. It doesn’t matter which mix of figures you put in each team, as long as the mix of weapons is right. Simply consult the colour codes below to help you base your infantry. Note that each line of circles corresponds to one base and each circle represents one figure.


Unit Leaders
Grenadier Company Unit Leader teams are based on a small 3-hole base facing the long edge. Unit Leaders combine an Officer with and two NCOs.  If you take an optional Panzerfaust you replace the NCO with a Panzerfaust figure.
