Flexible Plastic Figures

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 Rifle 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.

Commanders and Unit Leaders
Base the Rifle Company HQ teams and the Rifle Platoon Unit Leader on a small base with an NCO and a rifleman. The team faces the long edge.


Bren Gun & SMLE Team
Base the Bren Gun teams of a Rifle Platoon on a medium base. Teams combine a gunner armed with a Bren light machine-gun, an NCO, two riflemen armed with Lee Enfield rifles. The team faces the long edge.

Tip: Use the plugs found on the base plug sprue to fill any unnecessary holes when it comes to attaching the prone Bren gunners to the base.
