Monowheels, motorcycles, trikes, and quads.

Hunter S. Thompson wrote:Some people will tell you that slow is good - and it may be, on some days - but I am here to tell you that fast is better. I've always believed this, in spite of the trouble it's caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles.



  • The earliest motorcycle figure I know of is the WW1 Dispatch rider from Great War miniatures, available from North Star

    Image



  • Currently Wargames Foundry only have one motorcycle listed. However they had a range of WW2 bikes in their German range, and given the frequency with which Foundry removes and adds packs, they may well be available again, so we'll include them.

    Imgur Album



  • Bolt Action (Now Warlord) has a nice BMW with sidecar, British Welbikes, and a Harley Davidson
    Imgur Album

  • Artizan Offers Beemers with machine gun mounts as well.
    Image

  • And the trend continues with Black Tree
    Imgur Album


  • Eureka have some fairly generic looking vintage Italian bikes available both with and without riders.
    They also have a selection of modern light vehicles in their Australian SAS range, includeing bikes and quad
    Imgur Album

  • West Wind offers another BMW side hack rig, from their Berlin or Bust range.
    Westwind also has one of the larger offerings of modern and near future packs with a large variety of riders including biker scum, werewolves, vampires, cops, and more filling out their RoadKill range.
    Imgur Album

  • EM4 have a few modern offerings in street bike, police cruiser, and a scrambler type bike

  • Future Shock has several bikes still available via Prince August.
    Imgur Album

  • SuperFigs motorcycle henchman.
    Image
  • The Void and Urban Mammoth ranges seem to have some overlap, and I'm not familliar with the backstory, or what was what originally, but luckily you can find the whole pile at Scotial Grendel as Junkers, VASA, and Triads.
    Imgur Album

  • Urban Mammoth also seems to have a current production range of some of the figures offered by Scotia Grendel above, as well as some new additions to Urban War, including this Dune Raider quad.
    Image

  • Warzone's unique offering
    Image
  • Fenryll have a large selection of SciFi/Post-Apoc bikes and riders of different species.
    Imgur Album

  • Ramshackle Games has a fairly broad selection of bikes, though some are only available with lower legs pre-attached, which may limit their utility depending on your modelling skills.
    Imgur Album

  • Mongoose
    has some new lawmasters on the go.
    Imgur Album

  • Citadel continues to release bikes and trikes for your various marine forces, chaos or space.
    Imgur Album


  • While we're in that world. . .
    Where would market leaders be without knock offs? Puppets War leads the way with the sincerest form of flattery.
    Imgur Album

  • Of course if a thing like that can be done, it can be overdone. To remind you of that, is Scibor, as usual.
    Image

  • Why should the power armored soldiers have all the fun? How about the standard human space grunt? Curious Constructsis looking out for the colonial soldier on the go.
    Image

  • What about tracked bikes?Spartan Gamesoffers the treadcycle.

    Image

  • MadRobot is on the treadbike bandwagon as well.

    Image

  • And Zinge Industriesoffers an armoured treadcycle / tankbike thing.

    Image

  • Infinity have some futuristic designs for you

    Imgur Album



  • Mutton Chop has some creative faux-historical offerings.

    Image

  • If near future is more your thing, Iron Wind Metals are still producing some of the ShadowRun miniatures.
    Imgur Album

  • Let's talk monowheel, shall we? Antenociti's Workshop speaks your language, if thats what you're after.
    Imgur Album


  • And so doesTobsen77 for that matter.
    Though he also speaks two-wheeled space bike as well.
    Imgur Album

  • And if you just want the parts to make your own monowheel figure, look to Kromlech
    Image


  • Ground Zero Games has a few old 25mm bikers.
    Imgur Album

  • As we bring the scale down a little, we find another Italian bike, this one a Moto Guzzi from Mirliton, and in 20mm.

  • If small is really your thing, Games Workshop has you covered in 6mm for Epic Space Marine/Adeptus Titanicus /Epic 40k, though now it appears to be available through ebay only.

    Image
  • If you're brave enough, give TheEssexGirl a call and maybe you score some of the various bikes Citadel used to produce. I'm sure she'll quote you a reasonable price.
    Imgur Album


  • Also on the ebay only list are the Legions of Steel quads (shown with different riders)
    Image
  • Wargame Exclusive
    Imgur Album


  • Wild West Exodus has some trikes and bikes, but seems to prefer rocket-sleds? I guess snow mobile skis are really suited to rockey desert topography? :drunk:

Sorry, didn't spot that - getting used to the fact that there are more subforums to express different aspects of the hobby! Which I really like.

Added, thank you both!

Also I finally moved this one over to manufacturer-specific imgur galleries, yay!. The other two bike showcases will get the same treatment just as soon as I can find some speed and get really into repetitive detail oriented tasks again :shock:
