Take a piece of wire and fold it in half. Loop the looped end over a hook that doesn't move. Hold the free end tightly in a drill chuck. Let the drill spin the wires together, not too tight or they'll break.
Great barbed wire. Use 28 gauge wire, available in craft stores.
Indeed, I was wondering why I've not seen any pigeon messenger set ups with various HQ units in any produced minis company products. Even the plastic sets which often have obscure stuff on them (like the Belgian Ambulance Dog Carts) don't have any homing pigeon references - I mean like even one guy holding a pigeon for release. Power to the Pigeons! Let My Bird Fly - oh never mind, that is getting a little too personal.
Another way to make barbed wire: Go to the home improvement store and buy a bit of ALUMINUM window screen material. Lay it out and cut between the long runs of wire with a sharp razor knife. You will end up with lengths of wire with short cross lengths. Give the cut lengths a twist to randomize the barbs. Wrap around whatever size cylinder, dowel, etc you want for the coils. Or just mount the random lengths.
You will probably trash the blade doing this, but it is for a good cause.
Be careful. The cut ends are sharp.
Eduard also produces a photo etched sheet of barbed wire. About 8 meters for about $6US

There was no backdoor at the Alamo. Planet Earth doesn't have one either. Fight and win or DIE!
I've been busy after reading what you guys have been up to. I don't work too quick at the moment as I am recovering from illness and surgery, but I am making progress.
Hedgehogs and Edison Wires
The Edison Wires, are surprisingly easy to make, if you have the right parts on hand. BBQ skewers, mdf for bases and a bit of balsa for the poles. The white insulators thin slices cut off of Chumpa Chumps sticks
