The Guild of Coin rules the roads of Necromunda. They transport material between hives and, for a hefty price, they'll even smuggle weapons and people. Crossing the arid, violent, and irradiated ash wastes is a risky business, so the guild employs convoys of Cargo-8 Rideghaulers. These hulking vehicles are perfect for traversing the dunes thanks to their massive wheels and sturdy engines, hauling trailers of armoured containers and transport carriages across the Great Equatorial Wastes, but their true appeal comes from their modularity – it takes little effort to outfit one with enough guns to make it a mobile fortress, ready to repel gang ambushes and raids.
This multipart plastic kit allows you to build a Cargo-8 Ridgehauler, for use with any gang except the Ash Waste Nomads. You can construct this vehicle with six or eight wheels, and the choice of a cab-mounted grenade launcher or heavy stubber. The Ridgehauler's modular assembly options allow you to field it with a flatbed cargo bay capable of carrying gang fighters and freight goods, or with a Munitorum Armoured Container. The Container can be mounted with up to two heavy stubbers or storm bolters, and built with two gunners or closed hatches. The Cargo-8 Ridgehauler can also be fielded with an adjustable rear coupling, allowing it to tow a Ridgehauler Trailer and form your own land train.
The kit includes a variety of additional components for use with its flatbed cargo bay:
– 2x Large Crates
– 2x Small Crates
– 3x Barrels
This set comprises 203 plastic components, and is supplied with a Cargo-8 Ridgehauler Transfer Sheet featuring a variety of vehicular decals and gang logos. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints. Note that some components are intended to be assembled without glue.
Rules for using this vehicle and any attached Ridgehauler Trailers can be found in Necromunda: Book of the Outlands.
