Poses for gunners - this one has got me thinking and re-thinking. Some Guns had a seat on the trails for the layer to lay the gun, and others didnt.

Doe we make the crew designed with the 25lb guns in mind and have this:

Poses: 1 seated figure (for the gun layer on 25lb and other guns), 1 standing figure reaching out to fire the gun, 1 Kneeling Detachment Commander, 1 kneeling Loader (not holding ammo) and 2 Kneeling figures holding ammo.

or

Pose2: Poses: 1 kneeling figure (for the gun layer on 25lb and other guns), 1 kneeling figure reaching out to fire the gun, 1 Kneeling Detachment Commander, 1 kneeling Loader (not holding ammo) and 2 Kneeling figures holding ammo.

Thoughts please.

Sounds fine. You could only have one figure holding ammo. If you have say 3 figures without ammo they would then suit as mortar crews?

or... if we have no figures hold ammo at all, not only can the be used on mortars (great idea by the way), but also for other purposes too (just not sure exactly what)

So, 1 pack = 1 seated figure, 1 standing figure and 4 kneeling.

Indeed, you then open up their use in a number of ways, whether mortar, HQ, whatever!

And I ordered 4 sets. Hmmmm weird. Can you adjust that, or do you want me to buy the extra three sets I ordered?

I used my CC not pay pal... unless something freaky went wrong. Or was the pay pal bit a general notice to every one?

Only came up with one set, i will adjust.

I put a nominal amount for the pack so that the Credit Card part will activate, does not seem to do otherwise.

I added the 3 extra packs and ordered some Japanese whilst i was at it.

Hopefully this wont create too many book keeping problems.

Hmm, if they are not holding ammo, but are in a number of generic usefull poses, then I will have to get a pack at least.

As these items have been put up for purchase on the Battlescape store, I ask anyone wanting a pack or 30 ( :lol: ) indicate their interest by placing an order at the web store.

And hopefully any further discussion will be about the exact uniform worn, and the poses.

I ordered a pack. Could use some weapons with them though, so I think I'm going to open a topic for small arms pack, containing some Brens, Owens, Thompsons and rifles.

Good idea - there are weapon packs out there, but they wont have the Owen and possible the Thompson in them. I use weapon packs to make game markers.
