Paint and Glue Miniatures Cyclists

Paint & Glue Miniatures, German Fusileers on Cycles

The PGM resin cyclists and motorcycle combinations in 15mm are the most absurdly perfect 15mm prints that I have seen. Anatomical proportions of the riders are correct. Animation is both realistic and lively. The cycles have chains and spokes. There are over ten different models.

I am fully expecting bits of the finely detailed weapons and wheel spokes to snap off in game use. I’m sure that my Soviet Artillery painting style¹ will not do the figures justice, but who cares. These figures need to be seen before my paint brush gets to them for the detail to be fully appreciated.

If the Soviet motorcycle combo looks like a BMW, it is no coincidence. I owned a Cossack Dnieper in the ’80s and it was clearly a BMW copy, made from scrap iron by rural tractor mechanics. Like everything else Soviet, it did the job after a fashion. There were enough of them to win the war.

    Very impressive … Experience suggests, however, that they would benefit from a ‘cast on’ base, so that they would stand up securely without the wheels ending up unconvincingly buried in glue or whatever 😉

  2. I might just have to get a couple of those Soviet combinations when I next order from PGM! 🙂 You have continued to be a bad influence into 2021! 😉

    They look worryingly fragile but the detail is quite something.
