One of the more daunting aspects of Flames of War is the basing. Lets take a look at how to make basing a breeze!
When you get your first company box you open it up to find an hundred or more figures and these flat grey bases you’re going to end up adding life to. Well never fear brave Generals! Battlefront has a product that is straight out of the realm of greatness.

Assembly on these is pretty basic, but I will warn you that older platoons require a small amount of trimming of the metal base on the figure. When these were released Battlefront wrote an assembly article for them. They suggested three different methods of gap filling but missed the obvious way to fill the gaps and that is by using Vallejo Coarse Pumice, which is my basing material of choice. Coarse Pumice is probably the easiest way to fill the gaps because you get the benefit of the texture with its ability to blend with the surrounding detail.
