An elevated machine-gun bunker can be seen in the second photo.

Lots of versatility in this trench system, to give the maximum playable options.

I agree with Grumpy Gnome, stunning terrain!

Trenches look amazing  :-*

Given the effort you have gone to, just wondered why didnít opt for terrain tiles with the trenches recessed into them rather than ones you place on the table?

I just donít think terrain tiles are very versatile this way it gives me much more options

Fair enough. I got resin trenches for my WW1 games. In hindsight I got too many straight sections. I should have got more 90 degree sections as later trenches seem to dog leg backwards and forwards, I understand to limit the effects of grenades/explosions.

An amazing project.  Each of your figures is a small character, evoking the period.  Bravo.

Great terrain, truly has that apocalyptic vibe of ww1 trench warfare.

The Romfel and escorting troops are marvelous.  Although perhaps it should be driven by Rickhard Ruchlos, vice Dick Dastardly!

Nice Romfel!
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

I am running my first game at a Lardy event on Saturday 18th Febuary with my co-host Richard Clarke.

1917 Operation Lard - Through the Mud and the Blood (Hollywood style).

You have watched the film, now play the game with Clarke and Lane at Winter Wonder Lard, Bristol.
