Cargo-8 Ridgehauler Review Part 1, what's in the box

The Cargo-8 Ridgehauler was released on the 25th of June and is a kit that looks like 40k threw up on a Mad Max vehicle, and I love it.

Cargo-8 box contents

When the box is opened the Ridgehauler has the weight of a big heavy kit. Some of the sprues you get make up a Munitorum Armoured Container which can be situated in the back. The Beauty of this is that the armoured container doesn't need glueing in and is completely removable allowing you to put models or other carried terrain items in the back.

I've also got the trailer kit as well as the main rig, and you can do the same with the container in that kit as well.

Cargo-8 suspension and wheels

The wheels are big and quite hefty, which gives it the perfect appearance of grinding across the ashwastes. The only drawback I can see is the undercarriage assembly, it's quite a complicated series of pieces, which could be quite difficult for an inexperienced model maker. I could also see some of the big slabs of plastic wanting to fall over quite frequently when you're waiting for the plastic glue to dry.

Overall the Ridgehauler kit is a nice addition to anybody's Necromunda gang, but I'm also going to use it as a piece of terrain by purchasing the Battlezone: Manufactorum Munitorum Armoured Containers this will make a great set piece for Killteam and a fantastic corner or centrepiece for games of Warhammer 40k.

Also going to use this as a 'count as' Goliath truck for my Genestealer cult force. Love the idea of a Container Trojan Horse roaring onto the battlefield, and it fits with the Jury Rigged feel that some of the cult forces have.

You can pick up the Cargo-8 from Hobby Workshop cheaper than you can direct from Workshop and I honestly think this kit is worth a purchase, even if you don't play
