What color would the hedgehog beach obstacles at Normandy be? I would imagine they are "rusty steel," but I've never seen a color picture from during the war.

I think they were sea grey, (I know some Cullen devices were made from the hedgehogs) and some re-enactor's versions are.

Go with dark steel or black. The ones that are left on the beach are rusty, but I suspect they used a particular type of steel that formed a protective oxidized layer rather than one which would corrode immediately.
