Came across this at Canadian Tire, it's 10 feet of plastic garden edging shaped like a stone wall about 2" tall.  Might be good for the battlefield.  If we crash into them it has long enough spikes to keep them put and strong enough not to be damaged.  Of course the need some weathering to get rid of the shiny plastic look. 

What do think Dean, could be good for the Kitchener field, you leave them out all year round.

There is a simulated stone texture spray you can buy and then I would weather a little. Of course being out side it will get weathered pretty quickly...
