I DO like those minis.

Alas, I have a horrible suspicion, that like those stylish Polish chaps from the 10th Mechanised, in their black leathers, these are going to be Recce troops that only make up a small percentage of a division, and so are of limited use in wargames terms.

(Has never been more keen for somebody to prove him wrong - Fall of France really is NOT my area...)

This type of uniform was worn by quite a lot of French troops. motorcycle elements of the regiments d'automitrailleuses (RAM) and of the regiments de dragons portés in the divisions legere mechanisees (DLM) (French cavalry armoured division) and divisions legere de cavalerie (mixed cavalry and armoured divisions) So a lot more use than just recce troops :ugeek:

Early War Miniatures do some.

Though to be honest in 20mm scale, a M/C combinations all look the same at 4ft :lol:

Sgt`s Mess and Oxford di-cast have both recently brought our several different bikes w/side-cars plus you have several plastic options - you`d have to be pretty anal to care that its the wrong type of bike :lol:

Having foolishly offered to help a friend with sorting minis for playing through his little booklet of 'Fall of France' scenarios for Rapid Fire for next year, and being told 'great, you can do the French - I've barely started those!' that's fantastic news!

Make a nice change from all those greatcoats that seem to have been so popular among early war uniforms!

The GRDI (Groupe de Reconaissance de Infanterie - pardon my French) were pretty substantial formations with more than just motorcyclists with rifles and light machine guns. The motorcyclists also had a heavy weapons platoon (60mm mortars, 25mm at guns, heavy machine guns), and the Groupes also had armored cars in their organization - particularly the Panhard 178 and the AMR 35. The 6th GRDI, which was the first holding force at Stonne, even had obsolete Schneider P16s attached to it.

So, building a force with these figures gives you an excuse to collect all kinds of cool, obscure French kits (like I am doing :grin: )

Is there any prospect of a tripod mounted MG team for these boys? The range as it stands offers a couple of options for a gun group leader and possible gunners/loaders with limited alteration :beg:
