Taliban cavalry!

Well, not actual cavalry, and not even all Taliban at that! 

These are from Empress Miniatures.  The two on the left are built as intended (well, mostly, I think I mixed the passengers up, should have been two beardies and two masked blokes sharing each bike). The two on the right have been civilianized.  I had to rather messily chop off the AK rifles that were cast on to these figures, and then cover up my hatchet job as best I could with paint.

Two civilian motorbikes.  I modelled some simple saddlebags for one of the bikes.  Afghans will modify or personalize pretty much anything, so this was my effort to pick up this habit.  I resisted the temptation to add a Mickey Mouse blanket. 

And two Taliban motorbikes!

My next challenge is to find one of these in 28mm!
