Working With Flexible Plastic...
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 8cm Mortar team)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.

Base these heavy weapons on medium base facing the long edge. These teams have the gunner and his weapon, and two assistant gunners or loaders.
