Spartan Heavy Assault Tank(s)

An armoured transport of truly massive proportions, the Spartan is a heavy assault tank previously all but unknown outside of the revered Adeptus Astartes and the secretive Adeptus Mechanicus. The Spartan is a huge armoured conveyor whose purpose is to carry a large body of troops into the very heart of an enemy’s battle lines, weathering weapons fire that would be the death of any lesser vehicle. It is this very reason that the tank is favoured by the warriors and commanders of the Rout.

Its design bears clear connections with that of the mighty Land Raider, and its genius is such that the greater proportion of its interior space is given over to a transport capacity greater than any other Imperial vehicle save the super-heavy Gorgons – being capable of carrying twenty-five power armoured Astartes warriors into battle. It is, however, considerably faster on the battlefield thanks to potent reactor-driven motive drives, and it boasts an equally potent armament in the form of sponson-mounted quad lascannon batteries and secondary heavy bolters. If the tank is considered to be fearsome, its cargo is ever more deadly!

Until Next Winter…

Armoured Support WIP 01

Decided to up the armoured transport count, two Spartans and a Land Raider to bolster the rout’s formidable advance.

Note: one of these is a actually a much required re-paint of the spartan already pictured earlier in the project log.

the30kchannel – Inferno Book Review and 6th Legion vs 15th Legion Skirmishes

Had the absolute pleasure of visiting the30kchannel once again, filming a short look at Forge World’s Book VII Inferno and playing out some sample skirmishes to showcase some of the new legion rules and units.

This little video also acts as a prelude to playing through the whole Inferno Campaign with my friendly adversary Dan (@1kson on instagram) and his spectacular Thousand Sons army.

Until Next Winter…
