Heresy Era Death Guard - Spartan Assault Tank

A welcome reinforcement for the Death guard, a Spartan! Now this wasn't originally in my list, but after falling in love with the Deathshroud, I had to have an assault vehicle for them to ride it!

Now, I will be nicknaming this tank 'The Bastard' on account of how much of a bastard it was to put together!! Now, I've heard a lot of people moaning about the tracks on this thing, and it was no exaggeration! What a pain. However, since its such a nice tank, I'd say it was worth the effort.

Some details of the weathering:

Went with some heat distortion on the Lascannons:

Finally, I magnetised the Lascannons for easier transport. Plus the connection was a little loose anyway. 

I really enjoyed painting this guy - the idea of a second one has crossed my mind more than once!

So with the Death Guard fast approaching completion (the rest of the army has now arrived from Forgeworld) most of my attention is on my new Battlefleet Gothic fleet. more on that soon!
