Working With Flexible Plastic Many of our new infantry and gun crew figures are have been produced using a new casting technique and material we have been developing.
To find out how easy it is to prepare and paint these new plastic figures click on the link below.
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 SMG Company)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.
