BOOM goes the Dynamite!

Hey All!

A few pieces of terrain for the Salute 2013 and some easy-peasy Barrage markers.
Trenches are wooden matches with tile grout/PVA glue groundwork based on 1/4 MDF. Sandbags are 2-part epoxy putty. Telephone and signpost are scratchbuilt, using bamboo skewers and thread. They are used to mark map reference locations. The signpost actually says Spartanovka, Front, Death to Invaders and Hospital in Russian Cyrillic script - Really! Thanks Google translator!

Barbed wire is screen door mesh, cut into a single row, twisted around brass wire with the cordless drill. Hedgehogs are Evergreen I-beam. I may based on pennies later. Barrage markers are Woodland Scenics clump foliage, hot glued to wire armatures and sprayed flat black and white. Took about an hour to make two, stole the idea off the net. I didn't bother with the PVA glue dip step. Feeling a bit impatient today.  I found that the paint and hot glue holds everything quite well on its own.

Now, all I have to do is load all this stuff in the car and travel 16 hours to Vancouver for an weekend orgy of gaming...I am such a geek...

Very nice. I might have to do something similar with some trench sections like that. Same with the telephone poles. The look very nice. Great work!
