Games Workshop has been continuing their Warhammer: The Horus Heresy previews with a look at a big new plastic vehicle. The Spartan Land Raider looks to be coming as part of that Sci-Fi boxed set that will set the scene for your Heresy-era wargames.

The Land Raider Spartan or the Spartan Assault Tank is a pretty big mainstay of the armies of both the Loyalists and the Traitors. When it comes to shuttling your troops into battle, it can carry twenty-six Legionaries or thirteen Terminators.

As was pointed out by arbitorian as part of their video looking at the Spartan, it might have tweaked transportation capacity so that it can bring a Primarch into battle alongside ten Terminators. It would be rather neat to see a Primarch stomping down that assault ramp.

As well as being a great transport option, the Spartan is also armed to the teeth. It has a mass of lascannons on sponsons as well as the hull-mounted heavy bolters. You can also strap a pintle-mounted weapon to the hatch on the top that the gunner can use.

The base kit for the Spartan also comes with options for adding the Imperial Aquila or the Eye of Horus to the side of the tank. So, you can show your allegiance to the Loyalists or the Traitors as you ride into battle. If you want more vehicle goodness, you can dive into the Forge World Webstore offerings.

Are you going to be snapping one of these up?
