Well I just recently bought the German airborne along with the rulebook so I wanted to try a simple small piece of terrain for a start. The thought was to have a sort of trenched defense most likely for artillery guns. This was loosely based on the Company of Hero's British defenses - you'll know what I mean if you've played the game. Right now it's just an idea taking shape so it looks pretty shabby at the moment, so bare with me - and also that grey foam stuff sucks..

I do have insulation foam but it's very thick stuff, which means I have to work with it outside in the garage (& it's freezing/raining here) so I don't fancy it. Any the foam will be cover with textured paint or sand so you won't even know. Just kinda sucks to work with it.
tea leaves - good idea! Although I only seem to have the dried dark brown stuff, will post a picture below. Is that the stuff you normally use? I think the camo nets a good idea, although I haven't thought how to do it & it'll be quite awkward to position troops under it.
You could have the net poles higher that the front than the back, giving a sloped net roof. Very common to do if you're covering a gun or a mortar nest so perfectly historically accurate. We've done it ourselves based on photographs at re-enactment events.
