Use a prone figure and adjust the head. Most figure sets also include a guy in some extreme pose, waving a gun over the head or running that if put flat on the ground fits the bill.

In fact it sometimes looks better that way than standing up.

Search Plastic soldier review. I used the running Airfix US infantryman with that leg up and rifle thrust forward looked like he stopped a bullet.

For a casualty soft plastic figures are fine. They're not moving.

prolly have to do it that way if nothing can be found. kit figs are brit and german ww2. some might be subbing for bundeswehr, with some adjustment. thing is, they're posed for combat, which isn't exactly like gb/sarin death throes, but we'll see

I always figured that's why they put figures in kits with those poses. I'm sure some marketing guru figured labeling a kit "includes dead soldiers" wouldn't sell or would catch a lotta flak.
