    My eldest son and I started making a set of trenches last weekend.

    Can anyone recommend dimensions for a bunker, or gun positions for the mobile artillery, or the artillery battery set?

    Thanks,

    Craig

    Okay,

    No joy with an answer for that.

    By any chance does someone here have the Alien Dungeon Artillery position set and a ruler handy?

    Any assistance would be appreciated,

    There are some trench pictures and instructions in this thread http://aqmf.freeforums.net/thread/37/trenches

    Thanks very much for that link. There’s some great images there and I’ll probably end up guessing and hoping that they fit the pieces I eventually buy. I’m fairly confident I’ll get it right.

    Thanks,

    Here’s a quick picture showing some of the progress. I’ve been a bit under the weather, so haven’t gotten along as far as I had hoped. I’ve got two longer sections that will be useful for artillery, or anti-tripod guns, and I’ll add removable barriers to create 3 seperate bays in each one of those.

    The hill at the back of the photo will be an OP for directing artillery 🙂

    I’ve made a heap of hedgehogs, and will paint them up and add barbed wire as time and resources permit.

    I’ve also added some Edison Wires, which were surprisingly easy to make, if you have the right parts on hand. BBQ skewers, mdf for bases and a bit of balsa for the poles. The white insulators are off Chumpa Chumps 🙂

    Looks awesome! If and when I try my hand at making trenches I want to have them be undeground, like the origianl trenches of the Great War.

    I’ve got some thick styrofoam for fortified positions and bunkers that I’ll have as being mostly underground.

    I have yet to make the million or so sandbags to get these up to the correct height 🙂

    I found these a while ago, and they might come in handy for you. 🙂

    Those are great, but a bit big. Good for my 28mm games though.

    I was looking at these, and have asked the company what scale they are. Hopefully 1/76, which would be close enough for my purposes.

    I’ll post their answer here, if they respond.

    For my trenches I’ll probably just buy twenty packs of gubbins for sandbags. Come to think of it, a sandbag pack might not be a bad idea for IG to produce. Just a thought, though.

    Oddball,

    Where is the “Like” button when you need it? I think that would be an awesome product.

    I know, right! Like buttons are very useful when determining wether or not someone ‘likes’ the idea. Shocker, I know.
