More fencing

Post by siggian »

So I decided I needed more fences for my Eastern front fights. After sifting through a bunch of google images, I found this:

The fence in the background looked interesting, so I set about recreating it in 28mm

Since I can't put more than two images or links, here are more pics on my blog including how I created them:

In game terms, I think I will treat these like wheat fields in that they provide "cover" to a unit that is neither moving nor firing. Moving and firing units get no cover because I think you can see through the fence if you really look and both of those activities tend to attract the eye.

I like that idea, I was wondering what to do with the open rail fences I made. Enough of a visual disruption to count as concealment if you're just lying there, but not enough to actually hide you.

Plus, in the days before the weed whacker, you'd have an edging of long grass and weeds growing underneath and along side of the fences, which would aid in concealment.

Maybe I can pimp my fences with some tufts and wild flowers at a later date.

Nice idea and execution. Personally you can’t have enough fencing / walls / hedgerows .......they are the real obstacles / cover / concealment on most tables and a good mix looks fantastic.

They look fantastic. I think I might have to copy these some time in the future.
