The most prolific defensive terrain in history?

As part of the 6th Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge, one of the challenges was to paint your interpretation of defensive terrain....... 

..................so I came up with these out of the unpainted resin box!



Nothing to see here......


Just the pretty flowers.....


Wait a minute, what's that?..........


One of the more controversial weapons of all time.......


The name originates from the practice of military mining........


Seemingly the first mines were developed/used around 1277 by the Chinese.......


Placing minefields without marking and recording them for later removal is now considered a war crime........


The laying of land mines has inadvertently led to a positive development in the Falkland Islands. Mine fields laid near the sea during the Falklands War have become favorite places for penguins, which do not weigh enough to detonate the mines. Therefore, they can breed safely, free of human intrusion. These odd sanctuaries have proven so popular and lucrative for ecotourism that efforts exist to prevent removal of the mines..........

15mm Modern African Forces "The New Simbas".....

.........rumors leak that Rayonia is financing insurgency in Franonia?

Who needs some modern African forces for shenanigans in my country of Franonia, seemingly I do?

All these boys are from Peter Pig and represent a warlord/dictators force with armour to spread his influence or be bought off/hired by greedy countries....

The armour is three old T-55's, some unimogs and a land rover .......
