Description

Sometimes referred to as the Land Raider Spartan, the Spartan Assault Tank is a heavy assault tank originally used by the Space Marines legions during the Great Crusade and by Horus Heresy, and later by the Orders of Adeptus Astartes, which still hold them in their armory.


A massive vehicle, the Spartan is one of the largest ground vehicles ever deployed by the Space Marines, only smaller than their old super-heavy vehicles like the Mastodon, Fellblade, and Falchion. The Spartan also has the largest carrying capacity of any non-super-heavy vehicle, with the ability to carry 25 Power Armored Space Marines or 12 Astartes in Terminator armor.

The Spartan is an extremely durable and fully sealed assault transport, armed with heavy weaponry and boasting a high transport capacity. The real genius of the Spartan, however, is that most of its interior space is devoted to carrying capacity, yet the vehicle's engine and drive system still allows it to travel at much higher speeds than similarly sized vans, such as e.g. B. the Gorgon used by the Imperial Army and the Mastodon of the Astartes.


The Spartan Assault Tank was used by most if not all Space Marine legions during the Great Crusade and the Horus Heresy, and after the legions were broken up into Chapters during the second founding, many of the newly formed Space Marine units retained several of these vehicles in their armories. It is not known if the Adeptus Mechanicus will be able to build new Spartan Assault Tanks by the late 41st millennium, or if the technology has been lost like so much else from the Great Crusade era.

This multi-part plastic kit makes one Spartan Assault Tank, an imposing and indomitable transport vehicle. The Spartan is armed with two sponson-mounted lascannon arrays and a two-barreled hull-mounted weapon – your choice of a heavy bolter, heavy flamethrower or lascannon. Both the sponsons and front cargo ramp can be assembled without the use of glue, allowing you to adjust their position and reveal the detailed interior of the Spartan as you see fit. The kit also includes components to upgrade the Spartan with a trunnion-mounted weapon - a chaos launcher, heavy bolter, heavy flamethrower, multi-melta or a combo-weapon with five configurations (bolter, flamer, melter, plasma or volkite). – plus a searchlight, Hunter-Killer missile, and cosmetic options like tow hooks, a dozer blade, Loyalist and Traitor icons, and a choice of a Space Marine rifleman, scout, or closed hatch.

This kit comes as 213 plastic components, and is supplied with a Legiones Astartes Vehicle Transfer Sheet containing 44 optional markings and symbols for the Sons of Horus and Imperial Fists legions. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly - we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Paints.
