G.O.T. Recon-Squad Jet-Bike preview

Antenociti's Workshop have posted a preview of their Recon-Squad Jet-Bike model and rider. Recon-Squad Jet-Bike From their website:
This is the first miniature in what will become the Recon-squad (pack). The final pack will consist of four figures on three bikes, the one shown here, another solo rider on the “Norton Scout”, and then the “Norton-Commando” bike which i the long-range 2-man bike with a new stowage-pack. There will also be weapons-pod options for each of the bikes. Not yet for sale as we are waiting for the other bikes and figures to complete the set, but as he’s panted-up I thought it was worthwhile showing some images. The figures comes on a tab which extrudes from the Rider’s left knee, so he can be placed right onto a slotta-base for those who want a simple fitting. However, the figure was designed to indicate speed-turning and manoeuvrability, so if the tab is removed the figure can be pinned through the length of his though, from his knee. That angle of pinning allows you to rotate the miniature about an angle which raises or lowers the way that the figure is pointing the Gauss-Carbine: in other words you can alter the angle of turn, and the angle the weapon is firing, by rotating the entire miniature about a single point.

Baccus have posted photos and details of their newly released 6mm range of Norman miniatures. Normans From their website:
I take some personal pleasure in announcing that our Normans have been added to the Early Mediaeval range. This is an incredibly useful little group of figures as they will do service as 'Franks' covering the armies across western Europe. Their list of enemies ranges from each other, the English, French, Italians, Byzantines and Sicilian Moors while of course they make perfect forces for those of you wanting to recreate the first Crusade. Not bad for just six codes!

Vampire Grav-Bike rider preview

Antenociti's Workshop have posted a preview of the rider for their Vampire Grav-Bike model. Vampire Grav-Bike with rider From their website:
Before we get to the pictures though I just wanted to say something about the Vampire bike: Yes, it is very big. It was always intended to be big, very big… What we were trying to show with both the Vampire and Werewolf was fledgling technology “anti-gravity” requiring brute force and raw power for it to function, these weren’t to be refined, sleek machines like the Norton Scout and Commando (jet bikes), they were ugly, brutish, stupidly powerful and highly dangerous.  You didn’t ride these bikes so much as cling-on for dear life while praying, indeed calling them “bikes” may be a terrible case of bad labelling… but it seemed appropriate.
