I think that when it comes to stocking a table with scenery for VBCW it is the little details that make all the difference and set it in the right 'Period'. For example, you might have a 16th century timbered farm house, but if it's next to a Bright Red 20th century phone box suddenly it is in a very specific time and place. These Lampposts are very much the same sort of thing- a little detail that helps make it all seem more 'realistic'.
These were a pressie of my old mate Pulp Citizen and they are from the Tamiya military roads signs set (1/48 scale). I have ten of the painted up- and they should be good for any game set from Victorian times to modern day. They were quick to assemble and paint- makes you wonder why it took me twelve month to get round to doing them?
