I know Warlord has them but they include two standing wounded. I am only interested in prone casualties. I have looked at other makers of WWII French and I don't see any. Looking for suggestions.

Worth having a look at Woodbine Designs available from Gripping Beast.

Thanks for the link. They look to be WWI. I am going to put them on a counter to keep track of pins. I found some 20mm that I think will work.

You could carve up some Wargames Atlantic plastic WW1 French

The Woodbines *are* WWI,but you'd have to really know your French gear to spot the difference if painted khaki. The 2 visual cues that are "off" for WWII are the third ammo pouch at the rear (easily removable) and what I think is a bread bag on the WWI figures, which would be a more structured gas mask bag on WWII soldiers. For my part I'd rather have in-scale slightly ill-equipped figures than out-of-scale correctly equipped, but that's a matter of opinion.

I was just thinking of doing that.

I have searched everywhere and had no luck. Not in any scale. I found Romanian and Bulgarian casualties but no French. Bolt Action sells them three to a package but two are standing. The prone one is on a plastic base like some of their LMGs.

I would have to get my dremel out and carve on it. That is way too much work and expense to go through just to place a casualty figure on a pin dail.

The good news is there are plenty of early-war German casualty figures. This is strange as the Germans fought more French (1939-1940) than they did any other country and yet no casualty figures.
