Have the basics for a Finn army. Have a British 40mm Bofor Platoon (BR540). What do you suggest for Finn figs to be around the bofors? I am not skilled enough to make own figs, change heads, etc... Any Finn players let me know what you did. Any pics would be nice. Should also note I am not doing the winter scheme. Battlefront has Winter Themed AA figs, but not standard summer.


Thanks.

There is a Finn Arty crew special order that you can use to ring the AA piece. For the guy sitting on thne bofors you could do one easy head swap for each gun. With a pair of clippers, a small file ...and some super glue you can do it easy sir. That is without pinning it.

I've found some quick but careful filing of existing helmets can often result in a "close enough" representation.

A bit late but actually the British figures would work fine with just a head swap, the Finns received a shipment of British battledress 37s during the Winter war which they used for their home guard and boy soldiers which often manned AA guns.

Bashon and Sturnismus; you two are awesome! Thanks for the suggestions. I knew someone way more skilled or knowledgeable would have an answer.

OH! ...wait for Finns ... They were Kraut helmets

Best choice for Finn Bofors - us the Hungarian special order 40mm Bofors.
