Modern Afghan Bikes.

New additions to Eureka Miniatures' 28mm Afghan Guerilla and Middle-Eastern civilian ranges are on their way.

Here are some shots of the militants that I recently sculpted (and just painted!) atop the 1980's style dirt-bike that I also mastered. As well as the armed guerillas, there is also a lookout (or 'dicker' in military slang) talking into a phone.

Alan Marsh sculpted the wonderful Afghan families, each balanced on a single bike, and also sculpted the Muslim civilian figures that I painted for this post.

The 28mm Afghan range is pretty complete now. There is also a Dshka on a ground-mount, as well as one or two other figures that I didn't get around to painting, but should be in the Eureka web-store soon.

Bye for now!


  1. Excellent sculpts and paint work Kosta.
    Whats your next project?
    cheers John

    1. Thanks a heap John.
      As for what's next, well that's a tricky one to answer. It's likely to be additions to either the 1980's Soviets (who are crying out for some heavy weapons) or some specialist units for the WW2 Soviets.

    1. Glad that you like the bikes Kym, and thanks for your comment.

  3. Awesome neat & subtle tones in your painting, Kosta. You have great skill.

    1. Thanks!
      I generally stay away from pure colours for cloth, so mix in a bit of grey with the blue tones, and brown with the red tones etc, as I find it adds to the realism of figures.
