How to assemble your Fallschirmjäger Mortar Platoon.

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. Super glue is recommended for this. (Note: plastic cement, which works by partially melting hard polystyrene plastic parts and 'welding' them together, will not work with the flexible plastic figures in the Fallschirmjäger Mortar Platoon)
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
12cm Mortar TeamsBase the 12cm Mortar teams on a large base facing the short edge. These teams have the 12cm Mortar weapon, the 12cm Mortar loader, two Mortar Crew figures and an NCO or Rifleman.
8cm Mortar TeamsBase the 8cm Mortar teams on a medium base facing the long edge. These teams have the 8cm Mortar weapon, the 8cm Mortar loader, a Mortar Crew figure and an NCO or Rifleman.
