Does anyone know of any decent shell holes in 15mm, I want to use some for some Square Bashing scenery tiles I am making. Any suggestions would be gratefully received!

I make my own. Scratch building is fun and a real money saver.

I use the TimeCast shell holes.

Rrobby, yes it is, you're right, but at the moment, I'm looking for convenience!

Thanks Monk, I'll have a look at them.

The shell holes are from Early War Miniatures link £6.50 GBP for 30 if you cut them out and paint them yourself. I usually make my stuff but couldn't be bothered with shell holes … I don't think they are wonderful but I think they do the job well enough for the modest outlay.

Yes, they are 20mm but they are holes in the ground and there are a variety of sizes wink

Hope that helps …

Phil, those are perfect! And cheap as well. I am going to stick these to a 12"x6" board as a terrain tile for Square Bashing and I just can't be bothered to make my own…

Iirc Verlinden and Woodland Scenics do vacuum formed sheets of shell holes/lunar craters that should work for 15mm, especially if you want big shell holes.

Cheers Dave, I'll have a look at them!
