Hey all, today I’m showing a recently completed World Eaters Spartan Assault Tank.
The model is by Forge World and is quite large compared to a regular Landraider. The model is also very heavy, I would not want to drop this one as it would probably explode!! Assembly is fairly straight forward, but quite a lot of the parts need to be trimmed and heated to remodel to make them fit. But I think this is pretty normal with a lot of Forge World kits. Overall I’m happy with the turn out of the paint job, but in some ways wished that I removed the aquila symbol. That bugs me out a bit. What do you think?
Yeah I wish I removed the Aquila.

Very nice paint work
However this is more a fluff comment rather than on the painting.
Pre Heresy World Eaters the Spartan would be in the White and Blue paint scheme.
The Red Armour did not come till after their fall (to be honest not far of a fall more a step off the curb)
I think the Aquila would look better as being ruined and destroyed to show their split from the Emperor and his golden light.
But as I say it is just a fluff comment and not a critique on the paint job.
Hey cheers, as said I should of removed or damaged the Aquila. I kind of regret that. As for colour its for a 40K World Eaters army. The guy I'm painting it for has a lot of mixed 30/40K stuff going on. But yeah that Aquila I should have done something to that!

This has your signature worn world look that works. My attention was drawn to the Aquila as well. Then I start looking for legion symbols but can't see any, so the Aquila is to most prominent visual thing that holds your attention. I think that is also because the Black around stretches out further from the outline. I think if that affect was close to the object that would minimize the effect. Please note that is a small point against the overall quality of this piece.
