At the far left of the two photos above is Harry, the first of two thugs armed with a wooden baseball bat. From his pose he looks like he could be the leader of this little group, pointing towards their next target.
Next to him is the second thug armed with a wooden baseball bat, Elvis. He doesn't look like an Elvis to me but that's the name that the good folk at Foundry lumped him with. He holds his bat in a two-handed grip. I'm no fan of his goatee beard.
The guy in the middle, Flamer, probably got his nickname from his love of setting things on fire. He is about to light a molotov cocktail with a cigarette lighter. A red bandana covers most of his face. His hair, tied in a ponytail reaches down to the small of his back. Surely that's a fire risk!
Next in line is Tony Mosley, one of the very rare Foundry figures to be given a Christian name and a surname. I wonder if he's a real person, possibly a friend of the sculptor. Anyway, I've painted him as an African/American to add some ethnic diversity to the group. He appears to be unarmed but who knows what he's got stashed in his backpack?
Finally we have a man armed with nothing more than a rolled up newspaper. This is Bets, fly killer extraordinaire! Bets and Tony could double as ordinary civilians, given their lack of any obvious weapons.
The next two photos above show the five figures from the Wrecking Crew set, starting at the far left with the appropriately named Crowbar. He wears his baseball hat back to front, which I always think shows a lack of intelligence. I wear a baseball hat myself, but always with the peak facing the front. As you can see, Crowbar is armed with a crowbar, which would make for an improvised weapon in ATZ.
To his left is bare knuckle fighter, Quiff. He has a good set of muscles on his arms so he's probably rather handy in a fist fight. On the other hand, he'll be a total liability in a gunfight!
Next up is another thug armed with a molotov cocktail. He's called Dutchy and he's holding a lighted molotov cocktail, which he's just about to throw. Note that his hair is almost as long as Flamer's from above. He wears a Burberry baseball cap, back to front, making him twice as thick as Crowbar. For those not in the know, Burberry baseball caps are prevalent amongst the loathsome Chavs in this country, so, not a good look.
Fourth in line is my favourite figure out of both sets , Dodger. You can tell in an instant that Dodger is a looter because he's making off with a portable TV set. A nice touch is the plug dangling from beneath the TV. I think he's an absolute gem!
Last of all is another skateboard fan, Linus. He's carrying his skateboard in one hand, whilst giving the finger with his other hand. Charming! On the plus side, he at least, knows the correct way to wear a baseball cap.
When I reviewed the Foundry Street Warriors last time a few people criticised them for being too heavily armed. Indeed this was a criticism aimed at many of Foundry's Street Violence sets. It's not something that has ever bothered me but each to their own. I mention this because there is no way you could level that criticism at these two sets. Not a gun in sight!
I've already used a lot of these figures in an ATZ scenario from my campaign, called, what else but "Looters" which you can view here and they are absolutely perfect for that role. It has to be said that these two sets are not your typical Street Violence figures but they are all the better for that. If you are looking for very lightly armed antagonists these are ideal. Each set costs £10.00 from the Wargames Foundry website.
