All Flames Of War infantry and guns are supplied with appropriate bases. Assemble your infantry teams by gluing the figures onto the base of the right size. super glue is recommended for this.

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.
