Scratch Built MG Nest For The Game Table

It has been a while since I posted on ACG about updates to my miniature wargaming blog. If people do not mind I can do it on a regular basis. In my latest update I just completed a scratch built MG nest in 1/72 or 20mm for my game table. I wrote up a short tutorial which you can find on my blog 'The Command Tent'. I hope I can work this new terrain piece into my next game of 'Nuts!' It should be an interesting obstacle to over come on the battlefield.

Thanks for looking
-Dan

Nuts! is a WWII skirmish level wargaming rule set from Two Hour Wargames. Its big selling points are its great rules for solo play and its unique 'Reaction System' where units react to the enemy units during there turn instead of watching them move getting shot at and not doing anything until your turn. I've only played a couple of small games to start learning the rules but so far its alot of fun.
