To break up the long running series of posts of my holiday photos I thought I’d throw in some bits I’ve been working on.
I play a few PC games- I’m not a hardcore gamer by any means but I like a good co-op session with my friends, its good to relax chat and shoot stuff online for a few hours every now and again.
One of the games that I’ve been playing a bit of recently is ‘Tom Clancy’s Division’, set in a disease ridden anarchic New York city with gangs and a rogue Private Military Contractors running about. [I’m pretty sure Tom Clancy had nothing much to do with the game, it was released after his death, but his name still shifts units…]
Inspired by the game I’ve been making some bits and pieces for my modern gaming collection all in my usual 20mm size/ 1/72nd scale.
A large barricade I made up from various bit and pieces: skip, shipping container, truck cargo bed and resin cast rubbish bags.
Back view: the base sections came from old Matchbox kits.
A couple of rubbish piles and skips mounted on Wills plastic scraps.
Some sections of modern concrete barriers, these and the rubbish piles came from Anyscale models clicky.
Some wooden barriers, MDF kits from Blotz clicky.
These are my PMCs inspired by the game’s Last Man Battalion protagonists: I used Elhiem Minitatures clicky US Rangers from their Somalia range. White helmets and jackets, trousers in UCP and webbing in Olive green mean they’ll do for US SOF types if I need some in winter bases.
For transport they get two HMMWVs. These started of as toys, a gift from Tim at Meghablitz and more clicky but scrubbed up very nicely. I painted them with spray cans using blu tack as a mask. They were then finished with acrylics for detail and oils for weathering. A big thanks has to go out to Tim for them.
