A Trench Warfare Diorama

tTrench warfare diorama by Alika

Here is the wonderful trench warfare diorama made and submitted by Alika. Thanks Alika for the great pics and the information on making a wonderful diorama!


Here is how Alika made this diorama:

The picture shows the diorama. It is 24" x 12" in size and made from polystyrene and sanded down, Clay was used for sand bags, fake grass, and fake bushes. I used copper wire to make the barbed wire. (all I did was wrap long copper wire around a stick like object to make loop effects). I used cotton for smoke/ explosion (would be better if I had put a bunch of dirt on cotton to make live effect), Card board was used to make the metal plates so infantry can easily walk upon, and other miniature accessories like shovel and ammunition box which came with my war hammer 40k. Figures are about 2.5 cm and painted.


Here are a couple more pictures of this diorama

I also have some really nice tutorials on making trenches that you might want to check out. This is a video tutorial that shows how I make trenches out of cardboard.

This is a tutorial on how to make realistic looking rubble in a diorama. If you have trench warfare you no doubt have destroyed buildings and structures. How to make realistic diorama rubble This tutorial also comes with a video where I show you how to do it.

I also have some pictures of a complex series of trenches in a diorama. This trench diorama was submitted by a web visitor (Alex) Complex trenches in a diorama
