A biker gang with guns! The SS aren't to every ones approval but you've done a good job nice brushwork! I'm working on a box set of BAM waffen SS, I like the figures and like how they paint up but I've one or two reservations about them!

Those are really nice – I love motorcycle guys, especially the German side cars, but have never figured out how to use them in my games. But geez, if meyer is "famous", then I hope you classify Pieper as "famous" too. laugh

I'm not a big fan of 15mm figures, but those fellows have some really nice animation to them. WIP? They look pretty good even without the flock to me. Good job.

How does FOW deal with motorcycle stands? I have some of my own, but other than scenario specific piquets or listening posts, I never really use them in a game as I mentioned above.

I use them attached to armoured car units. I've also got a whole battalion (scaled 1:5) to paint up, but I'm using a groundscale of 50m to the inch, so my Kradschutzen will need their bikes to traverse 12 foot of table!

Thanks for reply's,I'll do a complete review on building these pains in the ass to help any one who plans on building them. The camo alone took me 3 hours to do 9 figures. I have painted 3 platoons of infantry and a heavy MG platoon.
Thanks Mike.
