Default Easy Terrain: Packing Peanuts

Packing Peanuts: the scourge of fragile stuff being put into boxes. But you can find an efficient way to use these strange-shaped lumps of Styrofoam!

This is very simple to make. Get a base, such as cardboard, polystyrene, or whatever you normally use. Now, get packing peanuts, and glue them together in a sand-baggy fashion. Build up the wall until it's about 1 inch/3cm high, as this obscures most of the model from view. viola! instant gun emplacement position, +5 cover! Paint, base, normally, but I hoped to share this idea with everyone. I believe it can be put to good use.
Something like this comes to mind:

Note of warning! DONT try to seal the terrain w/a clear cover! the peanuts will dissolve!

Well now i've got this cool foxhoel that was hit by a plasma cannon...
