Resin Terrain for WW1 Trenches
« on: January 08, 2010, 05:05:00 AM »
I started this thread with the hope that people here will post photographs, websites, and reviews of the various companies that sell resin trench scenery that can be used for WW1 gaming.  Hopefully this will become a sticky that can help someone who has decided to start doing WW1! :D

I have some Amera vac formed plastic trenches that i think are great value, (i know that the heading says Resin but i thought that these should be included any way

http://www.amera.co.uk/product.php?range=z

They are a good width, no fire step though. but very easy to cut & add one. They need a littile bit of work to get the very best from them. 

Also in plastic is the nice Kalistra Trench system, that you can get preflocked to just plonk straight on the table:

At the other end of the scale there is the fantastic Grand Manner resin trenches & accessories:

There is Ironclad miniatures resin trenches, not seen these in the flesh but have heard good reports:

There's also some resin trenches & inserts coming from Barry Carter that look really nice (don't have a web address though)

Here are some Ironclad trenches i am working on. Deliberated hard to decide which route to go, but in the end decided that I just did not have space to store the variety of boards I would want for variation so went with these. Some have been customised with additional sandbags, helmets, corugated iron etc, for a liitle variety.

I've done a lot of research on this.  I like the set into the table style, but the resin ones are often above ground.  I plan to use a mix of a whole lotta stuff.  I like Snap Dragon but he's semi-retired.

I have a lot of links on this page:

http://nurgle.muschamp.ca/paintingAdvice.html

Including links to trench making tutorials.  The winter Too Fat Lardies seasonal newsletter had two articles on making WWI trenches.

I am not so fond of the "raised" trenches available. I plan to build my own using the trench inserts from Timeline. The trenches I have received have been of good quality and the service has been excellent

I'd forgotten about Conflix, just about to start late WWI and this is just the job.

Not familiar with Conflix, good work on the Death Korps of Krieg.  Or Death Korps esque.  I'm chipping away at my hobby to do list and hope to show some trenchworks soon...
