   Five obstacles proper for World War II games are ready. Apart from the usual materials, such as mdf, balsa wood, PVA glue, sand, little rocks, etc., the main materials I used were cotton buds and the wire from the earbuds, which are a free offer to RENFE train travelers. The barbed wire is a "The Army Painter" product. The final cost of all five little terrain pieces came very low.

   I used the wire of the earbuds to tie together the cotton buds and PVA glue to secure the construction.

   The pieces are ready for priming and painting.

   I painted the "metallic" rods here and there with Vallejo "Orange Fire" and then I gave them a heavy wash with Army Painter "Dark tone". 

   The last two obstacles have the barbed wire.   

   That's all for today! Stay tuned for more!
