Caltrops and stimulii
#1
Salvete omnes,

So I tried my hand at some anti-personnel devices, the caltrop and the stimulus. Both are replica's from originals. They are a bit finicky to forge, with bends and bard, but good fun. The stimulus is set in a stake at the bottom of a shallow pit. The bend is to allow it to be hammered in.
Stepping on either of these will certainly ruin your day Dodgy !

Thanks, Tony! Hoping for some orders on these, so I can make a series and invest in making a die for splitting and bending Wink .
