I like the mag changing idea. A prone Saw Gunner would be nice too. 
I've already modified a GMS/P figure to be prone along with a prone 
sniper figure. (ghillie suit added too!) I really must get some 
photo's done as I know folks want to see things. There's a few NAC 
Coast Guard Vessels that folks will want to see as well.

Another few figures that would be nice are:

A Medic figure

For NAC alternate headdress in the form of Balmorals (highlanders!!! 
I'll be scratch building the piper myself... )

A demolitions guy planting a charge or a mine. (sappers still exist 
in SG right?)

Some vehicle crewman with smaller weapons like pistols and PDW's and 
less armour plating things. The L7A3 is pretty compact but the 
current trend in Combat vehicle crewman is to give them Personal 
Defense Weapons with some sort of hybrid sized cartridge. A SG-ish 
mean would be something like the L7 sans the grenade launcher 
component. Also Combat vehicle crewman are staying with lighter 
kevlar armour over the chest area and dispensing with other 
components for reasons due to comfort and mobility in that tight 
confined space. They still have CVC helmets and stuff. Perhaps a 
different helmet with some sleeker bits to it and a breast plate only 
as far as armour goes?
