GW Reveals New Plastic Spartan Tank For Horus Heresy!

horus-heresy-spartan-tank-plastic-space-marines-forge-worldIt is happening, GW finally revealed the new Plastic Land Raider Spartan Assault Tank for Horus Heresy, and it is amazing!

We initially saw this in the rumored starter set over a year ago, so finally having some confirmation is awesome. Just like with all the recent releases for HH this is going to be plastic, so it looks like there is real potential that all the new tanks will all be plastic as well.

Which again, is just great to see.

Heresy Thursday

Warhammer Community revealed the tank along with what weaponry you can equip it with as well as carrying capacity. Let’s first check out what else we’ve seen for HH, then get into the new stuff!

Horus Heresy Starter Set Price, Value & Savings Breakdown

You won’t have long to wait to get your hands on this unbelievably packed boxed set, and while we can’t reveal full details of pricing, we can confirm that the set will cost less than £200 or $300 (US) when it launches. That’s a lot of Beakies for your bucks…

There are two big things to note first. We don’t know the prices of the individual kits 100%, so this is as close as we can get for now. Also, just to note, these are all going to be priced in plastic, with estimated pricing compared to the latest price increases.

Warhammer: The Horus Heresy – The Age of Darkness Retail Price: $299

  • 40 Mark III Space Marines $220 ($55 for 10)
  • 10 Cataphractii Terminators $140 ($70 for 5)
  • Contemptor Dreadnought $70 (based on the Redemptor kit)
  • Characters $55 (based on the Space Marine Characters pack)
  • Spartan $110 (drop from resin based on the Repulsor Executioner price)
  • Rulebook and other potential accessories $50 (probably more on the $60-70 side)

Total MSRP: $645 not counting  accessories  Confirmed Box Price: $299

Total Values versus $299 box price:  $346 in value

So while the initial price is a little higher than we had hoped (but expected), this has some great value, and you get more than 100% of the box price in value. Plus, you just get so many minis!

This will be a great pickup if you want to get into the game.

New Horus Heresy Plastic Land Raider Spartan Tank Revealed!

The mighty Land Raider is a design that has stood the test of time ever since Arkhan Land dug it out of the catacombs on Mars – but what’s a Legion Praetor to do when their prized Terminator squads can’t quite squeeze into its armoured hold? They reach for the Spartan Assault Tank – and now, with a stunning new plastic kit, you can too. 

Land Raider spartan

Also known as the Land Raider Spartan, this armoured carrier was designed* to punch through the most overwhelming enemy defences and deliver a knock-out blow of massed Astartes infantry.

It looks a lot like you would expect, but that look is timeless and awesome! The best part though? It’s plastic!

When not carting Space Marines about, the Spartan is also an effective vehicle-killer in its own right, armed with a whopping eight lascannons. Grouped into two quad-linked arrays, these lay down accurate bursts of firepower strong enough to crack open any enemy hull.

You can even swap out the heavy bolter for two more lascannons! So if you need to punch through enemy armor, this should be able to do the trick with 10, that’s right, 10 lascannons! Then, the gunner can have a ton of options as well, so plenty to choose from.

Land Raider spartan 3

It became a common assault vehicle during the Great Crusade, where its nigh-impervious chassis could shrug off regular anti-tank weapons as it ferried up to 26 Legionaries – or 13 Terminators – into the fray, with a surprising turn of speed for its size.

The new Land Raider Spartan has plenty of carrying capacity, and when you drop 13 Terminators on the enemy, you know their day is about to go badly.

Warhammer_The_Horus_Heresy_Age_of_Darkness_Unboxing_Spartan_Assault_Tank_Sprues_03To say this is huge might be an understatement! With 6 giant sprues, you know this will be massive and quite the build. The commander on top can have two different options, and the weapons are basically all covered. Looking at how everything fits together, you should be able to magnetize the kit and future-proof it.
