My attack on the resin mountain (no one should have a resin mountain…) continues, this time with the addition of two heavy units for the Heresy-Era Space Woofs – the Leviathan Dreadnought and the Mighty Spartan.

I picked up the Leviathan earlier this year, but the Spartan has been lying around for more than three years, so tackling it was well overdue!

Painting-wise, both of these are an absolute doddle (any Heresy-era Space Woof vehicle will be, just adapting the instructions from the Prospero Painting Guide). Putting them together…

The Leviathan was okay, even though I had managed to misplace the instructions. The legs are always a slight challenge on both this and resin Contemptors as you need at least three hands if you are trying to go for a specific pose. Just go slowly and let everything dry properly before moving onto the next bit, and you will be fine.

The Spartan veered towards bitch territory during construction. Putting on the tracks was ‘okay’, though I hear Forge World now have a newer version where the tracks are more integrated into the side pieces, but the centre hull was challenging. The use of (many) rubber bands helped immensely getting this beast together and, while it is still not perfect, the Spartan certainly looks the part!

On my painting table now are a bunch of rats I have been meaning to get round to for nearly a couple of years, and I am hoping to finish off the Kharadron Overlords and do some more Thousand Sons before the Christmas break – already a few days behind schedule, so I don’t know if that is actually possible, but that is the plan!
