I wanted to make some scenery for my 'Nam game and thought some traps might make for some interesting pieces of scenery.
The first one I made was a punji pit trap. I actually raised the trap up above 'ground level' so that I could add the stakes into the pit.
I think it worked out rather nicely, and when you look at it from above the games table it looks ok.
Next I went on to bigger things.
While the punji trap probably took 10 or 15 mins to make, excluding drying time, the next one took a bit longer.
I used an old CD as a base, covered it with masking tape so it would take paint easier, and then made some trees and strung 'grenades in tin cans' trap between two of the trees.
Initially I only made the two trees, but Mrs Shelldrake said it didn't look very much like a jungle, so I added four extra trees. The grass, fern and rocks were added in the original build, and I positioned the new trees around them.
All in all, I am very happy with what I have built, and if readers think it worth while I might even post a tutorial on how I made the traps.
Clicking on the images should offer a bigger view for those wanting to take a closer look at what I have made.
Oh, as as you can see, I finished basing the LRRPs too.
