STREET FILLERS


So, I have been going hard on the Terrain side of my project, showcasing this week a variety of street fillers, from left to right I got my hands on three ladders, they are made of plastic and will serve the Survivors well, giving them access to rooftops and other out of reach areas, I will even allow the players to carry the ladders around if they wish for use in different circumstances, all this will be at a cost of course, Hehehe.


The second Item on display are street signs, you can't have a street scene without street signs right? I have a pair of each sign placed strategically around the terrain, I purposely damaged the signs to give them more of a used look, they seem more authentic this way, at least I think they do ... added a bit of grim to them aswell, I think there pretty cool.


The last item is a street light, I have four of these placed in pairs around my terrain for added realism, the height is right, I just wished they would have been a little thicker in the base of the shaft but ah well cant have everything hey? I had to put the street lights on a plastic styrene base so I could blue tac them down, this helps keep them straight and upright.
The ladders I purchased off some random dude on Evilbay, the signs I made, street lights, again purchased of Evilbay (search - O scale street lights), all these items are great and add so much to the overall feel of my terrain.

Nice looking stuff, you can't beat a ladder in a zombie game, as I found out the last game we played, when both were over the other side of the zombie infested table!

Streetlights...ofcourse! As you say; it all adds to the reality of the table.

Street furniture helps to bring a board to life. The more and varied the better. You've done well with these items.

Thanks for the comments everyone, I'm not far from finishing the terrain, some grass, wooden fences and a couple of trees stand between me and the finish line.
