Anti-Vehicle Road Barrier


Product Code: BAR/RND

Used to block-off or channel traffic, these round topped barriers represent cast concrete walls that are speciffically designed to ward off vehicles and stop them getting across to the other side, even in a collision (intentional or otherwise). The base edge is wider than the top as it is designed to deflect vehicle tyres before the body comes into contact with the thickened, rounded top.The smooth textured surface has vertical grooves which represent joints between the pre-cast concrete sections. This type of barrier is quite often found in the urban environment and are the correct height to provide cover for 25 to 28mm figures. As the real barriers would be cast with reinforcing bars to strengthen them then these could be counted as providing hard cover.

This set comprises 8 round topped resin model walls. There are 2 straight sections approx 72mm long, 2 'T' sections 36mm long, 2 short straight sections 36mm long and 2 right angle corner sections 40mm long. All are approx 25mm high and have a sloping kerb type base 22mm wide (don't forget that slotta bases are nearly 5mm high so that the walls will come up 20mm on figures).This set would make a good addition to our flyover series of models.

Ideal for use at checkpoints, providing an anti-vehicle barrier. If you also want to go a step further at a check point you could also use our anti-tank 'hedgehog' obstacles and mock barbed wire. These are still used in modern anti-vehicle barriers.

Add more details with painting the sections alternating, contrasting colours such as red and white and add various arrows or stripes. After paitning in the base colours, use a sponge to dab small amounts of a grey/sand concrete colour (eg Valejo stone grey) to represent chipping of the paint surface. Afterall, wargames are not renowned for careful driving!

All figures in the photographs are not included. Judge Dredd figures are avilable from Mongoose Publishing.
