Making barb wire fences is an easy guide to follow. 1. The first step is to cut your bases to the desired size either using MDF or hardboard in my case I used hardboard and cut it to 1 inch wide by 6 inch long once you have cut your bases to the desired size you then want to proceed to rasp the edges to give it a smoother appearance.
2. The next phase is the glue the tiles spaces on to the hardboard using a glue gun at either end's of the base.
3. The next step is to texture your base. I have done tutorial on basing.
4. The next step is to paint your base and the tiles spaces I used Humbrol No. 67 Tank Grey Tank Grey, to paint the tile spaces and Humbrol No. 64 Light Grey to dry brush them.
5. The next step is to get your light duty galvanised wire and pull off a long length and then fold it in half and push the two ends into a drill, and the other end fasten to a pencil, and then preferably get somebody to help by holding the pencil, pull the galvanised wire until its reasonably tight then turn the drill on its personal preference on how tight you do this bit.
6. The next step is now to wrap the wire you have just twisted around a pencil or similar object to create coils you can cut them at any desired length.
7. I actually used the wire itself to twist around the tile spaces to get a securely fastened Barb wire diorama.

This website was no longer available on the Internet and as it's one of my favourite programs for making maps I decided to resurrect it. And full credits belong to (Site Design © 2006-2014 Matthew Tyler. Images © 2007 Rob Robbins). MappingBoard is an application for drawing wargame maps. I am not a very patient person so the idea is to have a simple, easy to use application where you can, as much as possible, just plonk terrain items down on the map and not have to change a dozen properties such as colour and width every time. Of course, initially, you will have to set up the toolbox to be able to draw the maps that you wish, but after that, you can just draw a blacktop road with white markings, for example, straight on the map every time you need to. If you wish to create a library of specific terrain features, such as all the hills in your terrain box, it is as simple as drawing a feature and saving it to a specific folder on your PC and it will automatically appear i
I bought Kriegspiel off eBay with the intention of using it for my wargaming campaigns, I chose Kriegspiel as I could use it with all my wargaming periods. I was wondering if anybody else has used this for their wargaming campaigns and could maybe offer some tips. "Kriegspiel is a full-scale wargame between two nations." In the advanced book it says "Of all the games in the Avalon Hill line this game is best suited for introducing novices to the growing science of game strategy." A basic traditional hex and counter turn based wargame, units having combat and movement factors. Combat results are done by computing odds (1-1, 1-2, 3-1, etc) and using a CRT by cross-referencing one of 4 defending strategies and 3 attacking strategies (no dice). Victory is by reducing the opponent to 20 combat factors or occupying all of the opposing cities. Advanced game adds reinforcements, weather, air power, supply, etc. This article was originally published in issue 15
