Flames of War Street Barricades

Within the Flames of War Street Barricades box you get two identical street sections, one overturned Opel Blitz and one pile of barricade, both designed to fill the gaps in the street sections. All are made from resin.

The first thing I did after washing the resin models to remove any remaining mould lubribicant was give the model a white undercoat. I then gave the model a basecoat.

I gave the street sections a basecoat of Humbrol Sea Grey.

The separate barricades, the truck and short barricade were given a basecoat of Warpaint German Armour.

See the workbench feature on the Street Barricades.

There are also a couple of Battlefront painting guides available.

These are the two different “fillers” for the gaps in the street barricades.

They could be used on their own as barricades or scenery without needing to use the full barricades.

Lots of nice detail in the models.

I think the truck works well.

Good underside detail too.

Barricade with the truck in situ.

There are a couple of painting guides also available.

I did eventually get a set of the Street Barricades that were released last February.

Couldn’t get one from my usual shops, so in the end I had to send off for a box. Even then it took a while to get here.

Within the box you get two identical street sections, one overturned Opel Blitz and one pile of barricade, both designed to fill the gaps in the street sections. All are made from resin.

These are very nice castings and lots of detail.

Before I started painting them I looked over these excellent painting guides from Battlefront.

I like how in the tutorial they have painted the truck as a civillian truck.

Flames of War Barricades – 26th February

The Flames of War Barricades that were a sneak peak I mentioned back in December are to be released on the 26th February.

Really nice pieces of scenery.

Though released for the Eastern Front (Stalin’s War) I think they should work fine of the streets of most French towns. Now who does a 1/100th scale Citroen I can add to the barricade?

Looking over the Flames of War site, was interested to see the Sneak Peeks and really pleased with some of the forthcoming releases for next year.

One that I really did like were the barricades.

Combining this with the really nice tram barricade from Kerr and King.

They would make for some great street fighting scenery. I also quite like the idea of the FFI Company for more French town street fighting.

Some more Ork Barricades

One of the nice Cities of Death models released were the resin Ork Barricades. Six resin barricades (still available) that have a very Orkiness about them.

Orks are adapt at banging together large piles of debris, welding them with burnas and Gretchin for extra stickiness. In dense city-fights, cunning Ork Warbosses use these barricades to funnel enemy troops and prevent their armour from manoeuvring, before their Tankbustas launch a devastating ambush.

These are going to be part of what hopefully will be an Ork city.

This is a nice one that has had Baneblade tracks used within it. Also note the dead Imperial Guardsman.

This one has shells and a jerrycan of fuel (safe place to put it).

I do like these resin models. In my opinion this is the material that should have been used for the Blastscape pack.

Here is one of the barricades.

This is probably my favourite and makes use of an old Ork Trukk.
