How to make dragon teeth?

This is a mini tutorial to make, easily, dragon teeth that will be very cool in our engineers platoons.

Dragon teeth were used in some german fortification lines during WWII, from 1944 to 1945 the german army was retreating, and built some defensive lines in Italy, western and eastern fronts. Dragon teeth were antitank obstacles built with concrete. The shape and size depended of the mould used but they used to have trapezoiz shapes.


1. With some putty we make trapezoids, it doesnt matter if they are not perfect, we just need the general shape.

2. When the putty is dry, we model the shape with a cutter, it is very easy. I highly recommend to use DAS putty, because it is easily modelable.

3. After that we just have to glue them into the bases, and add some sand, as always.

4. And paint them as concrete exposed to the elemments.

British infantry platoons

In the last days I had a lot of college work, but I was working in two british platoons that I had started before. By the moment the miniatures are painted and I added the terrain and painted it in black!
