Early WWI trenches

A long time ago I got asked by a very good friend to make him some early WWI trenches. In the early stages of the war the massive building works that people recognise weren't really in effect yet and what was done instead were a series of reinforced lines using whatever terrain as to hand along with barricades and strong points.

Needless to say they look completely different to the normal trenches we consider to be an integral part of WWI but they were there nonetheless.

No making of pictures as these were done before I started to do that in earnest but hopefully the completed pictures will make up for it.

  5. Thanks again chaps :-)

    Never thought of different wars but I suppose it would suit for ACW, FPW etc and some colonial action somewhere.

    cheers
