The second vehicle type for my old imperial guard figs is the Recce car. I went back and forth during the design between something more similar to the French VBL and something closer to a WWII armored car. I ended up opting for the more WWIIish design.
The vehicle has a three man crew with seating for 5-6 in a pinch. The small turret carries a light auto cannon and a drone for detecting the bad guys is carried on the rear deck. Here are a couple of pics of the current progress:
I've also made some progress on the wheeled APC, particularly on the hull front and sides, and a little on the smaller turret:
And the last photo with all three of my sci-fi vehicle types, including the larger tracked APC from awhile back, to give a size comparison.
I think the second recce car may get a different turret. The first one is mostly done and came out okay, but I liked the look of it better on the drawing. The other version that I sketched out looks a bit more like the turret of the BTR-80A. I figure the cars can be a Mk I and a Mk II. We'll see.
