As my 54mm Imaginations model line progresses, I've been thinking about terrain and other accessories that I'll want for the tabletop. Having yet to figure out how to make a starfort with my laser-inator, gabions seemed like a great place to start.

The Gabions are two sided flats with mirror images. Currently I've made single and double set pieces, but may go for a larger version of three or four combined, with a lower piece or logs to create a proper gun emplacement.

Believe it or not, these were a lot trickier to design than they look. The weaving needed to look organic and not "digital", so I referred to period Renaissance and 17th century block prints, which helped greatly.
