I am trying my hand at resin casting and have come up with 2 products so far.
Sandbag emplacements and improvised barricades.

Image



The sandbags used in both sets are bigger than they should be, but this is due to correct 1/300th scale bags just looking too small for me.
So I decided to go for what I thought looks better, I went for what I would want to use as a gamer.

The barricades are a mixture of barrels, tyres, bricks, concrete blocks, sandbags, air-con units and all other manner of stuff found in modern urban areas thrown together to keep the zombies/aliens/rioters/baddies out!

The sandbag emplacements are on 40mm x 25mm bases and the barricades on 50mm x 15mm bases.

The sand bags are £1.50 per pair and the barricades £2.00 per pair.

Don’t delay, protect today!!

Those look really great. While the sandbags aren't regulation sized, since it's a ramshackle barricade the argument can be made that those were used feed sacks now filled with sand. I hope you don't run into someone who loves to nitpick like that. Also, the level of detail is awesome!

Going for appearance rather than being obsessively fixated on scale looks much better. The sci fi stuff tends to be 1:250 anyhow not 1:300 (1:300 is already well covered by the historical ranges out there and is too small for the average sci fi)
