Here it is painted:





I added some posters (from various factions) I obtained from the internet to the section of corrugated iron.


And some vegetation for camouflage:

 
And with a figure for scale:




The mahogany sideboard provides a stable platform for speechifying:


"Is it Fascism O'Clock yet?"

The barricade features some rather pointed "political graffiti":

That's a beautifully conceived and executed barricade. Top marks.

But we're already on the third page of "Bearwoodman does Ladies!" and still no ladies! Looking forward to seeing what you do there.
Back from the dead, almost.

That’s exceptional - the design, the detail the painting - splendid.

Just clocked the slogan on the end…any reference to Moriarty’s diminutive fellows perchance?

That is a very good point. I will redouble my efforts, gird my loins etc and see if I can do one this very night!

That is very kind of you to say so. Hopefully it will play it's part on the table.

I thought I had picked up on rumours of the Irish Lilliputian Leprechaun Legion (or whatever their official unit designation currently is) having "beef" with elements of the BUF for some time, certainly since the final of the last Challenge (https://hereford1938avbcwtng.blogspot.com/2023/11/modelling-challenge-2023-results.html?m=1) but my understanding of the complex and shifting web of factions and alliances in VBCW Herefordshire is rudimentary at best. I am sure that leadboy will along shortly to clarify the position.

Just so setting the ultimate standard for everyone else in the Modelling Challenge to compete with....congratulations again to you Bearwoodman! And as for the beef between the BUF and the Lilliputian Legion of Leprechauns (or whatever 1/72 designation they're fighting under at the moment), I fear that being run over by Mosley's Monster Truck at the conclusion of the 2023 Modelling Challenge (https://hereford1938avbcwtng.blogspot.com/2023/11/modelling-challenge-2023-results.html) has done little to promote amity between the factions...still, this being Hereford1938, anything could happen in the future (and probably will).

Nice work, Bearwoodman!

Leadboy, will be posting the barricades off to you next week. Have another for the pot, and some ‘corner pieces’, to add.
