World War II Fortifications

During WW2 a network of trenches and ringstands could form a complex and effective defensive line. Urban Construct have put together a selection of wargames terrain, which begins to illustrate the complexity and variety of fortifications scenery. Trenches were used as firing positions or to connect between shelters, gun-emplacements, tobruks and observation posts within a strong point. The following wargames terrain models are based on research into the real and sometimes still existing installations.

 This has been a fascinating subject to explore and create terrain from.  We hope that you find the historical background informative. This will hopefully inspire you to look deeper into the historical events related to this period. We also trust that you find these terrain models useful for your wargames but would like to hear from you should you have other scenery requirements.

 

Many of these terrain models are also suitable for 1/48 scale model dioramas.
