What extraordinary looking fence pieces. They have all the appearance of something used to line trenches rather than a structure to mark field boundaries. Dreadful, just dreadful.

Today, we're looking at the Rural Fields and Fences boxed set from Battlefront.

Rural Fields and Fences

There's a thin cardboard box around styrofoam packaging, with the field pieces on top…

…and when you remove the fields, you see the fence pieces fitting inside the packaging.

Rural Fields and Fences

There are eight fence pieces: two long straights, two short straights, and four corners. These are pre-painted in gray. One of the long straights has a gate.


There are also two plowed field pieces, made out of a stiff-but-flexible material. Pre-painted on one side, black on the other.

If you use all of the fence pieces, you can completely enclose one of the two field pieces.

According to the box, these are 1:100 scale and suitable for use with 10mm to 15mm figures.

Rural Fields and Fences

This set is intended for use with WWII gaming, but the fields are generic, and the fences work for any era when gray paint might have been used (or you could consider the gray to be weathering, or repaint them brown for earlier periods).
