Three years ago I spent a cold January night in a replica First World War trench, I have posted up some photos from that event on my blog. They can be used a painting guide for First World War figures:


Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the post. Very interesting read. Next time you should try a summer day. That might be interesting.

I was in a "trench" for the History Channel series "The World Wars" but most of the filming took place in a set built above ground and made to look like it was a trench. Not nearly as realistic.

Cheers guys, yep, warmer weather would definitely be a bonus! It's certainly interesting being below ground and really gave us a tiny insight into front line soldiers in 1917.

A rare experience…

I spent a night on a revolutionary war replica gunboat and it was interesting as well…

absolutely, and one that should be grabbed as soon as it comes up! I bet the night on a gunboat was fascinating!
