Hi, does anyone make 28mm Abiti?

Do you mean "abatis?" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abatis

Or are you referring to a log that has multiple sharpened stacks through it in an "X" pattern, which is called something else whose name escapes me at the moment.

Oh, I thought Abiti was some sort of long lost tribe…

Abiti is Italian for clothing, maybe he wants clothing for 28mm figures? grin

Related to "habit" in English, in the clothing sense.

Would that be an itty bitty abiti?

I meant the sharpened stakes. I'm really sorry for the confusion.

Jim, the term you're looking for is "chevaux de frise."

I'll have frise with that. wink

I'm just happy that there was no chevaux in my order of frise today -- should that be no cheveux in my frites?

I think Old Glory has all of those impediments!

I was in a bind once and needed a lot of cheveau de frise in a quick hurry. I got a bag of Woodland Scenic's pine tree armatures, They can be twisted so that each opposing pair of branches are 90 degrees out from the previous. Perhaps not 100% ideal, but relatively affordable and very durable.
