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 plastic figures in the 3-inch Mortar 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
3-inch Mortar TeamsBase the 3-inch Mortar teams on a four-hole medium base facing the long edge. These teams have the 3-inch Mortar weapon along with one 81mm Mortar loader and an two 3-inch Mortar crew. Use the plastic base insert sprue to fill any unfilled base slots.
