The Squat Army so far.

I looked back at my various posts and photos today and realised that I started my Squat project almost two years ago... and that doesn't include the amount of time I spent trying to gather together the plastic miniatures from Ebay either.

It suddenly dawned on me that it would be nice to see how far I had got and what better way to do that, than to dig out all of the finished units and take an army pic... so that is what I did.

Now, I know that I have other miniatures that are finished but they don't have full units yet so I will wait until they are complete before I do this again in the future.

Before the pics, I'd just like to note a couple of things:

  • The Exo Squats represent Space Marine Terminators.
  • The Sentinels are Armoured not Scout Sentinels.
  • I realise that the Heavy Weapon Squads are part of the platoon.
  • At the moment, everything except the Exo armour is from the Astra Militarum Codex.
  • There are more units to come in the future.
So... here's a pic with a key:

And here is a much bigger pic that, in order to get a better look, you will need to right click and open in a new tab:


Click the Pic! (or see directions above).

I don't think it is a bad little army, considering that it is almost completely converted in some way (apart from the little gun platforms). 

In the pipeline are:
  • An assault platoon (only special weapons, no heavy weapons).
  • Ministorum Priests (three Squat Berserkers).
  • Rough Riders (Badger Riders).
  • Ogryn (Converted Mantic Orx).
  • Transports (you've seen the WIP images).
  • More Primaris Psykers (two more Beastmen).
  • More Engineseers/Servitors (two more... much like the existing ones).
  • Heavy Support (I have not even begun to think of what I want for that yet).
  • Veteran Tyranid Hunters (count as Space Marine Scouts).
So... still a long way to go yet... maybe another two years!

... but hopefully, one or two of them may actually be painted by then!

See you from the Company HQ!

The Squat army so far looks great, Inso! I've enjoyed watching these models come together over the last couple years.

Thanks :) .

There is much more to come so there will be more army pix later on when there is more of worth to show off.

Very nice army so far. I'm impressed and completly mad about your converted troopers. Less fan of the exo ones.

Vehicules are on their way... I think you now need a big piece. Probably a big gun like a Thunderfire for example.

And... A flyer ?
