I can see where these would be useful, but it's not really too hard to add standing or kneeling riflemen to trenches made from foam, clay, or other materials.

If the standing ones prove to be too tall, cut them off at the knees and paint the lower portion of the trenches black to cover that up.

I've done this successfully in 15mm with troops in trenches and foxholes, so I can see how that can easily be done in this smaller scale too.

Of course, if available as an option, I'd support and might even buy some of these too.

I find guys in foxholes more useful than trenches though.

I tried to make some.
Did not get a good result...

The existing 3-men-in-a-trench models for the Brits and Germans are ideal to depict dug-in versions of my BKC infantry stands. It would be nice to have the equivalent for other armies (Russians and Americans at least).


Techno would know better than I but I'm hoping it would only need head swaps on the existing models.

I'm hoping to do new versions for all nations, with a modular trench/dug-in and then various upper torsos to drop into it.  It won't be appearing in the near-future but hopefully before the end of the year.

As long as it will fit onto a 40x20mm base I'm happy!

Thank you !  :)

To update on this, we've done an initial experiment with the British 'men in a trench' code and it works a lot nicer.  We'll start working through the other existing codes to do the same and then we can add in new ones as well.
