Bikes Galore

Nearly three months ago I ordered some post-apocalypse motorcycles from Ramshackle Miniatures. Their website did warn me that, owing to the figures being cast on demand and the use of cheaper postage rates (free to Australia from the UK - how good is that?) the delivery time could be slow, but after nearly two months I began to think something might be wrong, so I chased up the order. It appears that there had been an administrative oversight and my order hadn't been processed, but it was dealt with very nicely, sent and today it arrived.

I ordered their '15 Random Bikes' deal which seemed good value; they do 11 different bikes and I wasn't too fussed about what I got. What I actually got, by way of compensation for the delay, were two complete sets of 11 bikes - 22 vehicles in total. So thanks very much Ramshackle!

I took a few very quick pictures:

There's a mixture of bikes and trikes in there, most with one rider, but a few with pillion or sidecar passengers. Weaponry seems to range from the odd pistol through to pintle-mounted MGs.

The car's for size comparison. They are slightly smaller than I thought they'd be - a large 15mm - but I think they'll look OK once they're painted and based.


  1. I can't say that I'll be sad to see the paper motorcycles be retired. Nice pick-up, Kobold.

    1. I still have a soft-spot for the paper bikes. They've done a good job.

      And if these bikes - painted - still don't look right with the cars, the paper bikes will be back :)

  2. They do look nice, but a bit small against the cars. I guess that used on their own or with smaller cars/trucks there wouldn't be a problem.

    1. Yes, they do look a bit small against some vehicles - odd since they were apparently scaled to work with Hot Wheels cars. As I say, I'm hoping the basing and painting will offset this a little.

  3. Great find.
    I always fancied a variant for Battle Cars, but the bikes were a problem, I think you may have solved that for me.
