That takes care of the regular standing troops, but I need larger bases for the teams. I pulled out some 60mm Litko bases to get an idea and arrange the teams on them to see how they look. 60mm is good for the deployed two man LMG teams and the sniper team. I need something a bit bigger for the HMG and mortar teams. Fortunately Proxie Models is still in business so I ordered 25mm, 60mm, 75mm and 90mm rounds. Hopefully those will arrive shortly, they have been pretty quick in the past.
In the mean time I have based and added the fill to the regular German troops.

|Here is the 60mm Litko base (1.5mm plywood) for a two man team. I suppose I might be able to fit this on a 40mm round|
|The deployed LMG on the 60mm base looks pretty good though with room for some scenery|
|The mortar team looks a little tight, especially if I want to include some scenic elements on the base.|
|The HMG team looks really tight though.|
|I have two jars of stuff from Liquitex, Resin Sand and Natural Sand and I can never remember which one I like the best.|
