R.O.A.C.H. Patrol!

The far-ranging Arqualan mechanized cavalry now have the mobility they need to patrol the vast, arid polar highlands of Xiandao thanks to the Recon/Offense Adaptable Configuration Harrier.

(I love that bombastic, strained acronym. It reminds one of the G.I. Joe Killer W.H.A.L.E!)

This is a resin print and, as far as I can remember, it printed very easily without major problems, although there was some warping with some of the very thin armor plates (like on the top of the hull). I really should print out another and give a more detailed report since I printed it months ago.

As you can see at the link, there are a wealth of different configurations for this, including a turreted model. I only printed the quad missile launcher and what appears to be a 40k-scaled Mk. 19 automatic grenade launcher, which I magnetized for quick swap.

If you build one yourself, I suggest assembling the main hull but leaving off the suspension/wheels and weapons for easier painting.

Not much to say about the paint job. I used a base of Citadel Zandri Dust, with digital pattern camo stencils from Fallout Hobbies applied with Vallejo German Camo Pale Brown and Citadel Death Korps Drab. The suspension is Vallejo Light Rust given a red and then a brown wash. I gave it an all-over black oil wash and then weathered it with a Vallejo Iraqi Sand drybrush and paint chipping effects.
