Secret Weapon's 6x6 Rapid Assault Vehicle
Secret Weapon Miniatures has long been a go to place for resin bases, they have a large variety and every style and size imaginable. Secret Weapon also has a fantastic line of washes and weathering pigments (Hands-on weathering pigments with Mr. Justin blogpost). But today, I am going to review the single vehicle kit offering, the 6x6 Rapid Assault Vehicle.

The hull is comprised of two main parts. The hull bottom has two quite large resin parts on the back, so you may want to have a saw at the ready. The bottom part has two hatches in the rear and components for the suspension for each wheel.

The turret assembly is a single piece with a notch for the main gun assembly. The turret has a small amount around the base that needed to be trimmed, but as with the rest of the rest of the resin components, there was very little clean-up necessary. There are six (6) different options for the main gun. The main gun could be an autocannon, multi-laser, plasma cannon, flame cannon (heavy flamer), heavy support cannon (mortar), machine guns, or a high velocity cannon. The turret guns don't quite fit as well as the hull gun, but the fit is good enough that you could magnetize all of them for quick swaps. The turret guns have some flak that will need to be removed as with any metal cast.

The wheels fit onto the body with a spoke into a whole design. The fit for each varies, but with some adhesive it won't matter. This is a fixed wheel design. The wheels have rims cast onto them. The tread pattern is a diamond shape and adds sufficient texture to finish the wheels.
This kit is a very solid and has a great deal of detail. I purchased this as an attachment to my Imperial Guard (Astra Militarum) army and to go with my Elysium vehicles that were purchased at AdeptiCon. This kit can be used in any number of games, but for now I plan on using this as a Chimera variant.
