Hi, some trenches, and how I build them:

The base is pastic sheet (1mm) with foam (styrodur) on top (3 mm), the trenches cut out with a sharp knife. The craters are rubber seals, fixed with glue and soft tissue. You get them in a lot of diameters, and you need a lot of them.

Then I applied bird sand on the surface and into the trenches - very fine one into the trenches, a rougher one with little stones in it for the surface.

 Mud colour to your liking..

... and darker colour for the craters, a little drybrushing, green, and thats it. Cheap and easy.

And in addition my first fort, "L'Ouvrage de Froideterre" (http://fortiffsere.fr/verdun/index_fichiers/Page4551.htm)

And finally everything together:

Liking it


Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.

Wow! that is remarkably effective terrain. It is so good it deserves a mottled mat underneath it. Good little artillery pummelled wood as well.
