Note: An MG42 Gunner and Loader have been marked "A". These two figures must be paired on the base.

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 Rifle Company & 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.

Commanders and Unit Leaders
Fallschirmjäger Rifle Company HQ teams and Infantry Platoon Unit Leader teams are based on a small 3-hole base facing the long edge. Commanders and Unit Leaders combine an Officer with two NCOs. An NCO can be swapped out with a Panzerfaust to reflect the Panzerfaust special rule.

MG42 & K98 Rifle Teams
Base the MG42 & K98 Rifle teams of a Fallschirmjäger Rifle Platoon on a medium base facing the long edge. MG42 & K98 rifle teams have two K98 Riflemen, a MG42 gunner and an MG42 Loader. The other teams have three K98 riflemen and an NCO. For every team armed with an MG42 gunner and loader build one team with three K98 Riflemen. Any K98 Rifleman in any team can be swaped out for a Panzerfaust to reflect the Panzerfaust special rule.

Note: An MG42 Gunner and Loader have been marked "A". These two figures must be paired on the base.
