Hi guys, Michael here with my first post on the Traitors Hand. As the title may have given away I've just finished my Spartan at last! So I thought I might share a few pictures and thoughts on the mighty Spartan.
On every project I like to try a new technique or method, I choose Imperial Fists because I couldn't paint yellow! The major thing I wanted to try was pigment on the track to look like Martian soil. I did a bit of research and found one way to get the look I was after was alcohol mixed with pigment and a little varnish to get the pigment to dry hard and stick to the model. I used the forge world rust pigment mixed with isocol and clear floor polish to make a mud like texture that got into the track and clung to it like soil and dust.
While being super hardy there are a few good ways to counter this beast. Melta bombs, since they don't have the melta rule but the armour bane rule which means they still get 2D6 armour pen against armoured ceramite hulls and the good old chainfist equipped terminator squad will carve one apart.
