you could have a cut view.
half the tunnels are not there and the warzone is built on top of itself.
basically its like cutting out a thin piece of the battle field with tunnels that are exposed an a side.
i don't know how to explain this!
it kinda would look like those 2d platform games.
and you can have diggers have a set speed at wich they "dig"
