A common feature of battlefields in the 20th century and later wars is the concrete bunker and their relatives, such as the pill box. As such, they make a great addition to any WW2 wargames terrain you may have. Also, the concrete bunker is quite at home in many science fiction / future wargames scenarios - fitting quite well as Warhammer 40K terrain for example. They can be pretty simple to make from foam card or directly from foam blocks cut to the appropriate shape and textured with sand or filler to give the correct appearance. Note that lots of bunkers show the imprints of the wooden boards that were used to hold the concrete when they were built, and you can get a similar effect with filler and balsa wood pressed into it.

You can of course also find a good number of bunker kits and ready made bunkers to use if you don't fancy having a go making one yourself. If you wanted to make your own, you could adopt the foam carving technique I used in my simple buildings post - easily adaptable I'd say, and given the simple shape of most bunkers probably quite quick to build.
