Achtung! Minen! Citadel Resin Minefield

I started (and finished) these a few weeks ago, though the weather was bad and my mood was poor, so I didn’t take any “finished” pictures of them at the time, and the WIP ones just sat on my camera. As part of an eBay purchase, I noticed that the seller was selling a little container of resin Citadel land mines for a few bucks, so I grabbed them. Since they looked nice and simple, they only sat around for a few weeks or a month before I decided to have a go turning them into “fast scenery”.

The signs are something I came up with after finishing the actual mines. Just made from the same kinds of Proxie bases with putty over the top. I made the actual signage out of some plastrust I-beam and some tile-textured plasticard (so I could get them the same size!) Found some WW2-era German “Minen!” signs, chose an appropriate one, multiplied it and printed them out. I figure that if you’re going to have signposted mine fields, the verbiage really should be written in German. Also added some odds and bods from the bits box to add “interest” and make them fit in better with the 40k-flavoured ones. I’ll use these in anything from WW2 gaming such as Bolt Action, etc – right up to 40k and cohorts

Here’s the montage of how they went together. Cue “Rocky” theme. Or perhaps “Montage” from that episode of South Park. You know the one. Fun fact: I didn’t take any pictures of the signs being made, even though the process is probably marginally more interesting.
