We're taking a look today at some of the street and sidewalk products available from Barrage Miniatures.

Cobblestone street

This is the Cobblestone Street, which the catalog lists as 28mm or 1:56 scale. Size is 20cm x 20cm. Suitable for multiple eras. As the catalog says:

This is a large cobblestone street with rounded, rectangular stones, ideal for urban combat or any city landscape scenario.

So, what is this made out of? The manufacturer tells us:

The material is not a rubber or silicone. It was suggested to me by an industrial chemical engineer. As this material is used by the aerospace industry, the pieces have a shelf life near 300 years! They can be washed, repainted, or flocked. They are easy to store, and flexible.

The flexible resin comes pre-painted with Vallejo Acrylic Studio 42.

Sidewalk, plain

Now we've added the plain sidewalk piece, 5cm x 20cm. As the company says:

Suitable for scenarios based in European cities, from mid XIX century onwards.

You can place the sidewalk alongside the cobblestone street, or on top, so you can vary the width of the street to what your scenario requires.

Sidewalk, with drain

Now we've added the fancier sidewalk with drain. The drain is thin enough to overlay the street.

Sidewalk, with drain

The recesses in the sidewalk are for planters, trees, or other decor.

Sidewalk, corner piece

Now the two sidewalks have been joined by a corner piece, showing how you can make street corners (well, if you have more street pieces).

Flipped over

The backsides of the pieces are black, sometimes with slight lips from the casting process.


To give a sense of scale, I've added some of my 28mm WWII Russians (above) and a zombie fighter (below).


Looks like an interesting and useful range. I'll add a little metallic paint to the drain, and it will be perfect. grin
