Digging in!

The scratch-bodging of some very dodgy ships for COW (see here) left a pile of off-cuts of insulation foam.  The discovery of several bits of dowel and mdf then led to a cunning plan to build some trench sections.  These were er, 'designed' to serve from the ACW onwards and are pictured here with some of my Great War 54mm French.  Once again I hope you will forgive the hastily posed photos!
I built three sections - each a little worse then the last...  The first (the 2 photos above) features a  rampart with battlements.
The second (above and below) includes an emplacement for a small artillery piece....

...while the third uses the bits left over from the first two.

Trenches make for difficult gameplay sometimes

These Poilus look like they'll be tricky to shift.

Honestly - you youngsters and your hip street talk.
