[Archive] squats


i’m just curious but has anyone tried converting dwarfs into squats for 40k?

was thinking of making a squat based army with the dark eldar rules (just cause I think it would be hillarious). From what I understand though 40k is alot more WYSIWYG so not sure how good of an idea this would be.

Hrothgar Goldgreed:

If you’d just get a BfSP set (easy converting since they’re one piece), and some 40k bits such as guns or ammo belts, I think you’d be able to create an squat-army pretty easily, yeah.


It’s very easily done, Imperial guard and Marines are your best “counts as” rules, I’d probablly go with marines.

Chaos Squats, now every one is going to want to play that army!!:cheers


i’m actually thinking dark squats.

well had some extra GS with my latest blunderbusses conversions so made an attempt at a squat haemonculus with scissorhands and a splinter pistol

pretty much want to do dark eldar for them because

1) I love the portable star gate idea :smiley:

2) I think it makes sense fluff wise some of the squats might have survived the nid buffet and escaped into the web way. Also since they are use to working on a very high grav planet on a normal grav one they would probaly be fast buggers

3) the idea of a bunch of squats jumping out of the shadows and taking prisoners I find hillarious for some reason :smiley:

edit: moved pics to off topic showcase


I am in the process of creating a squat army based on marines. I am making thyem a mechanised army with lots of dreadnaughts and fliers and tanks. I have modified the BFSP Dwarf fence into my captain with artificer armour, I will post pics when I have some. They are the clan dwarf plastics, arms removed, sm arms and backpacks added, they look great.
