Okay so I've almost finished all my Italeri WW II german but what to do with dso many prone figures?

Well I've made some snipers...

I've also got an Artillery FOO

I went with the standard MG34 duo

And I've still got two left grrrrr...

Alright how about using them with a Granatwerfer 36 on a base and have a kneeling figure on a separate base that can be a number two or when no mortar is required can be a regular Soldat...

I got my 1/6 Dragon 5cm Granatwerfer 36 and scaled it down to make this with some styrene, pins and brass tube..

It's not perfect but will suffice for gaming!

I'll now build a second one and a few plain ammo boxes.

Saved buying a specialised figure and used up the last of my prone figures I find them very limiting for gaming!

Cheers! (literally a bottle of red is open)

Thanks Dropbear!

Both mortars built now so time to start painting...the second figure when not needed as a mortar guy is easy to integrate back in with the regular troops as he is based the same way so only the 'not so useful' prone figure is locked together with the mortar itself...

Thanks MEasy!

My painting is slower and no where up to your standard I'll get the finished figures up soon(ish)...

Then I've got a box of late war Warlord FJs to do...working out how to pain some up early war...think just leaving off the gas mask tins will be okay I think...

That is class. A great satisfaction that you created them, and they look they part!
