Come see the newly redesigned Land Raider Spartan Assault Tank From Forge World, unboxed!

Forge World looks to be redesigning a lot of things these days, from the Marine armor marks to even their Tanks! Come see what’s new on the Spartan!




An armoured transport of truly massive proportions, the Spartan is a heavy assault tank previously all but unknown outside of the revered Space Marine Chapters and the secretive Adeptus Mechanicus. The Spartan is a huge armoured conveyer 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.

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 Space Marines 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.

The Spartan can also be upgraded with our range of Land Raider doors.


The Spartan Assault Tank is an enormous multi-part resin kit that features a detailed interior.

Old Version:

Look at all those tracks you had to clean, straighten with hot water and assemble.



New Version: (purchased this month from Forge World)




Gone are the old fiddly track assemblies (much like the MK1 Leman Russ and Chimeara chassis) in a pre-assembled tread assemblies much like the Sicaran.

This really helps the build process out a lot as lining up those treads and making sure they are bent at the right angles and then flattened down horizontally can be a real hobby challenge.

Time to buy a sweet ride for your plastic Calth Marines?
