Id like to mount my crewed weapons on bases which allow for figure removal.
Any recommendations for suppliers?

I'm thinking round or oval bases with 3 or 4 "holes" for figures mounted on individual bases

There are a number of movement trays available. Below is a link to one brand. There are many others. You can mount the weapon in one hole, gunner in one hole, assist-gunner in one hole and spotter/leader in one hole. Also, you can make plugs with the same basing material as your troops to match when a casualty is removed.

Just another thought. I don't know if you are using Order Dice, but you could easily mold die holder into a spare base and put that in one of the holes.

I have quite a few of my figures based separate from the CSW, so that I can remove casualties and the like. I have 50mm round or square bases with magnets, and place them of the base for ease of movement. And I can put steel paper labels on the base if needed.
