Take a look at this extensive video on assembling the Forge World Mastodon that we all want so badly to get our hands on!
Another hobby hump day is here, and today I show you how to assemble the largest Space Marine vehicle to date by Forge World!
Scoring your parts allows glue to stick to larger flat areas better!
Some times you just need to apply a little gentle back pressure…
Boom – it’s done!

The Mastodon was one of the heaviest assault transports in the arsenal of the Legiones Astartes during the Great Crusade, and is still found in the armouries of the Space Marine Chapters of the 41st Millenium. Its cavernous assault bay, capable of housing almost half a Company, is protected both by thick layers of ceramite armour as well as crackling void shields. It also mounts a fearsome siege melta array, allowing it to breach even the most formidable defences with ease, as well as an array of secondary weaponry intended to defend the vehicle as it approaches its target. Unleashed only against the most fearsome of enemy redoubts, there are few obstacles that can stay the wrath of this relic of the Imperium’s bloody birth.
The Mastodon is heavily armed and armoured, carrying 40 Space Marines, and even Dreadnoughts, safely to the heart of battle. Whilst embarked, the warriors within will defend their immense transport, turning the sponson weapons on any enemy brave or foolish enough to come close. It’s Siege melta array can easily destroy fortifications, and makes short work of armoured vehicles, whilst its Skyreaper Battery will tear through any airborne threat with ease.
Rules for using the Mastodon Heavy Assault Transport in Horus Heresy Games can be found in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Army List and in The Horus Heresy Book Six – Retribution. Rules for using the Mastodon in standard games of Warhammer 40,000 can be downloaded from the rules tab on this page.
The Mastodon Heavy Assault Transport is a complete multi-part resin kit that builds one super-heavy transport vehicle.
This vehicle is absolutely incredible, both in detail and in size, and even though it was discouraging at times during the assembly, it was an awesome project to work on!
