Forge World Newsletter #308

Pravidelný Forge World Newsletter. Tentokráte skromný do počtu představených novinek. Představuje se Space Marine Spartan Assault Tank. Peněženky třeste se na pravidelný příjem resin cracku.

Hi there,
In this week’s newsletter we’re excited to announce that the Spartan is available to pre-order. This new kit is based on a Rogue Trader-era design, now brought up to date by sculpting legend Phil Stutcinskas. We’ve also got an events update for you as we are now accepting reservation orders for Games Day Germany.

Space Marine Spartan Assault Tank
Spartan Assault TankAn 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, dwarfing even the hallowed Land Raider, 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 posts an equally potent armament in the form of sponson-mounted quad lascannon batteries and secondary heavy bolters.

Many Space Marine Chapters maintain these huge war machines as part of their arsenal and deploy them into the most hellish and destructive warzones and battlefields, where even the mighty Land Raider would be torn asunder. Their greater transport capacity also finds particular favour amongst those Chapters who possess many suits of Terminator armour such as the Minotaurs.

The Spartan Assault Tank, designed by Phil Stutcinskas, is an enormous multi-part resin kit that features a detailed interior. Experimental rules to allow this armoured behemoth to be fielded in games of Warhammer 40,000 will be available to download soon, and the Spartan itself can be pre-ordered now for despatch from Friday 29th June.
