Forgeworld Crassus Amoured Transport

Hey Folks,

A few days ago I posted some pics from Adepticon, including a set with a WIP Guard transport/tank.

Well, FW has it up for sale! The Crassus Armoured Transport. The model is 225 points in the game and has armor 14-13-12 and two structure points.  It comes with 4 heavy bolter sponsons, as well as smoke launchers and a searchlight standard.  The weapons can be upgraded and there are the usual upgrades. It has zero fire points so its not a Mobile Bunker but it will make it a lot easier for that shooty squad to make it across the board!

Per the Forgeworld website:

This immense armoured carrier is named after one of Lord Solar Macharius’ greatest generals, Borgen Crassus, who remained steadfastly loyal to the Imperium throughout the grim and bloody Macharian Heresy that followed the Lord Solar’s death.

The vehicle can be retrofitted with additional weapons to fulfil other battlefield roles as required, and thousands of these vast transports were drafted into the 6th Cadian Armoured’s ranks during the fighting on Betalis III.

Complete resin kit. Model designed by Daren Parrwood. Experimental rules for the Crassus can be found here.



  1. Its a really sweet model, but its more expensive than a Gorgon! For the price i feel that i may as well get one of them, AND they have a higher transport capacity (50 models)

    The design of the Crassus will be hard to resist though

  2. It looks awesome, like something right out of Thunderbirds! but the price tag is a bit much to stomach...

  3. would not be too hard to scratch build. would be even easier to up convert from two chimeras or a land raider. not a bad way to introduce the IG version of the land raider.

  4. $181.68. It's funny that a model company can make GW stuff look ridiculously expensive.

    Maybe when I have $512 lying around I'll buy a complete "resin" Chaos Warhound Titan instead :-)
