Rhys got his first, which is what drove Owyn's "need" for models of his own. They both earned infantry right off the bat. They had to be good at school to get their rewards, and one bad day cancelled the whole week. Rhys' infantry can be found in this post. He wanted them to look like clones.
To sweeten the deal I also bought them each a couple of vics. Just like the infantry I queued up all of the various vehicles on the web site and let them choose what they wanted. Rhys chose the Earth Force APC.

It's a resin casing with metal tracks and a metal turret. Great value for what you get. The decals are GW IG stuff.

Based on my experience in armored vehicles the turret basket would take up the troop compartment. Obviously Sci/Fi could be different, but since there is a hatch on the roof of the turret, I've decided that this is a light tank and not an APC. It can carry four dismounted scouts in the back, very much like an LAV-25.
