    Nothing like a campaign to motivate you to paint up new units or make new terrain. Well as we plough our way through the 29, Let’s Go! campaign for Chain of Command I’ve found that I don’t have enough entrenchment markers and those that I do have are not totally satisfactory. I’ve gone for a tried and true method to fill some of the gaps in what I have and solve some practical issues, so nothing startlingly original here.

    Good way to use up surplus figures though. These are PSC figures (1/72 or 20mm).

    Some more info on how I made them here http://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com/2020/07/making-foxholes.html

    Nicely done, really look great!

    For a second I thought you had put a cigarette in the mouth of one of the Germans in the 2 man foxhole but then realized it was the shoulder pipping I was seeing.  And dang dude, shoulder pipping at this scale?!?!  Fantastic!

    If I were the attacker in your game, I’d be tempted to stop and dig in, merely so that I could put those markers on the table.  They look that fantastic!

    It’s tragic, I can’t help myself, it’s the modeller in me. That said, most gamers don’t see their figures up close but I’ve found that doing the photos for the AARs on the blog makes me see my figures from much closer than you would normally. That’s when those small details can make a difference, so in that sense it’s worth the effort.
