Was lucky enough to spot this very exclusive hard-plastic apocalypse biker gang sprue on a random demonstration table at Salute this weekend! More pictures and information on my blog, sprue wasn't intended to be revealed so soon  ;)

"From Paul over at Wargames Factory: "Nice scoop on Wargame Terrain's part! I'm not sure if that sprue was meant to be left out or not. Wai Kee was at Salute this week meeting with various companies and I imagine they showed off some samples. I just barely got some samples of that kit myself. We won't be releasing the kit for a while yet. Production of the sprues is just getting started, box art and instructions are pending etc."

"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

Are there rider right arms where the hand is gripping the throttle and not holding a weapon?

I really hope so.

Yes there are, you can see them on the sprue.
So many projects..... so little time.......

I was shown the 3D renders on these quite a while back, they're pretty interesting. I was as shocked as anyone to see sprue shots  :o

Ooh, and likely to be compatible with their regular survivor sprues too. Hmn, now are they all men or are there some women in there too? I'd buy this just on the principle that I like that company's kits ...actually finding a use for bikes beyond terrain may be difficult though.

Then again this would be an ideal opportunity to bring the 80s (or any old raider, NCR Ranger, caravan courier) from Fallout:New Vegas onto tabletop. :)

There are a set of heeled leather boots on riders legs, and guy boots.

It also looks like a set of standing female legs at least.

Personally I'd like a little more variation in bike, perhaps a harley chopper, and a cafe racer.. rather than just harley hogs. But that's me, and i'm a picky sod.

Cheers
Matt

Hopefully their extra weapons and equipment sprue will have a bike variation on it (other companies make them, but yes it'd be nice to see everything in the one box). Hmn, I don't see any stands on there either, though those are easy enough to make out of a bit of wire.

Not sure but think there will be three identical sprues. Glad you all enjoyed this lucky preview when I was first taking pictures of a maggotman creature also featured here on Lead Adventure Forum, just saw it laying on the table edge  ;) Never though of flipping it though to take pictures of the other side ...

Its par the course with that company to release three identical sprues that have all the figures on them, and an extra one with bits to tat them up with. If you're saying that they're just including three sprues that would seem odd, but you already have plenty of bits to play with on those already. It would be disappointing however not to see one. =/

Heh, but yeah tah for that image. :D

Putting bases on the sprue when they could have got an extra bike on is silly.
