Using a mix of physical and digital sculpting media, sculptor Giacomo Pantalone, "The Lazy Forger" has managed to get some incredible detail into this piece, from the bullet damage to the shutters on the windows in various states of what I'm calling open-and-closedness.
There are ac units, ducts and wires in various states of repair and some lovely rubble on the roof where some part of the structure has collapsed. The odd tyre and blanket are carelessly strewn around too.
One of my favourite pieces of detailing is the crumbling doorframe with bullet holes standing testimony to attempted forced entries. Lovely stuff.
Also newly released are a couple of sets of barricades. The first, plainer set represents what I am informed are called Jersey Barriers. Straight and curves sections, both sporting a satisfying amount of wear and tear without going over the top. They're the sort of terrain piece you didn't know you needed until somebody made them. They'll probably be a part of every table I set up from now on. The longer sections are approximately 5cm (2") long, the shorter ones half that.
Finally, we come to the "Rubble Defensive Line". These appear to be based on the aforementioned jerSey barriers, but have all sorts of rubbish piled against them and thrown across them.
Look at them, go on just look at them.
Have you looked at them?
Lovely aren't they!
Retailing at £20, £5 and £7 respectively, they're not the cheapest of pieces, but they're not at all unfairly priced. They represent the top end in terms of quality.
IMHO, as the kids say.
(Or probably said a few years ago...)
See for yourself. They're available here:
(PS A little birdy tells me there might be some shanties coming soon from the same team but I don't know if I'm allowed to say that, so pretend I didn't. They look fantastic too though.)
