Re: not a brush

Sable is the heraldic term for black. It is also French for black. The Sable Arm was a term used for Union black troops in the ACW.

Re: 28mm late WW2 infantry built and painted for my son

I was struggling to get enough rifle armed poses to get a proper mix of weapons. Ended up adapting some of the other arms to carry rifles. I found exactly the same. Though the Late war German Grenadiers have even fewer possible arm variants helped a bit by the variation in clothing on the torsos.
