|The entire haul minus Dano903's Soviets for scale.|
They are quite resilient and hardy. After their voyage from the US to Down Under, in which they were individually wrapped, I've been transporting them in a box to and fro and haven't had any problems or breakages. The bases are simple but effective, and I know Dano903 was more than happy to accommodate me on how I wanted them.

We used them at the Conquest Bolt Action tournament and I look forward to using them in my own games as I build up my own cache of terrain, especially in a Normandy beach style game. This brings me to the question: How exactly would you use them in a battle? The Bolt Action rulebook doesn't cover Anti-tank Obstacles specifically in the terrain section as a type of terrain.

During my games at Conquest, we played them as a regular Obstacle for infantry that provided hard cover if you had majority behind them (a pretty hard feat for units any bigger then a few men). While they were Impassable terrain for vehicles. This meant that a row of these could quite effectively impede vehicles and provided another thing to factor in when maneuvering units.

Now, Dano903 hasn't just been making anti-tank obstacles. In his forum thread you can see a bunch of other pieces he's been working on. I know Judson has a bunch of fencing from him (as well as ruined buildings, roads, city scatter - Judson), and he's also been working on roads, ruins, rivers and a whole slew of other amazing terrain. If you have a great piece you'd like him to have a go at, or even just to check out his work and be inspired, head over to the forums. He's always looking for questions, comments and suggestions.
