Recently, I bought some terrain accessories from Early War Miniatures (ex. Skytrex). These were: Ammo crates and Oil drums.
I wanted to make some street barricades that could be used as complementary items to my existing terrain pieces. combined with my sandbags and wooden barriers.
Apart from the above mentioned material I used some plastic boxes and barells alongside with some Milliput White putty for making some sandbags.
Below you see the W.I.P results, after modelling and gluing. They were a pain to make in terms of time per model, but the result was very pleasing. With an amount of 6 Euro (4 GBP), I managed to make 6 pieces and have many pieces left, that I could use in other projects. A fair deal dare I say.
Last, but not least is the aspect that these things are fully customized and ‘’tailored’’ in my own personal style. Commercially, there aren’t many options available, apart from Gamecraft miniatures Piles - O - Stuff, which are very nice and not at all expensive. But, if you live in Greece, you can’t place an order for a mere 5 Euro and the consequent postal costs. So, I had to come up with a different option - I opted the idea of making some of my own - I have to keep the brain’s cells active as much as possible - hehehe!
Painting post would be next.
I hope you like them.
Have a good Thursday night everyone.
