6 Insanely Cool Squats Themed 40k Conversions & Armies

best-squar-warhammer-40k-armies-conversions-miniaturesWhile the new Squats are still a ways off, you can get inspired by these awesome Leagues of Votann Warhammer 40k conversions and armies.

This is something we’ve been waiting forever to see, so we’re happy the new army is finally on the way. Still, people have been hobbying and making amazing models for a long time, so check out some of our favorite Squats we’ve seen! First, though, let’s look at the model we’ve seen from GW!

GW Confirms New 40k Squats aka the Leagues of Votann


April Fool’s joke? The Leagues of Votann don’t do jokes! Or probably April for that matter…
40k Squats
Yes, they’re really real. In an April Fools double-bluff that had Tzeentch himself scratching his feathered head, Humanity’s long-lost cousins actually are making their return to the 41st Millennium as a full Warhammer 40,000 faction.
The model itself is really sweet and honestly, the name change is probably a good thing as it just sounds cool. But we won’t mind if you call them by their OG name!

These warriors have a long and proud martial history, and to those who aren’t on their bad side, they’re known as the Leagues of Votann – though they refer to themselves as Kin.

Although their civilisation shares common roots with Humanity, the Leagues of Votann have an uneasy relationship with the Imperium of Man. Unlike their superstitious Human cousins, the Leagues emerged from the Age of Strife with far more of their ancient technology intact, including some infamous advances the Imperium would consider extremely heretical.

This is a cool idea in terms of weaponry as well. It looks like you just won’t have shorter Guardsmen with Lasguns or something like that. Let’s just hope they have some really cool weapons!

Their knack for science and a headstrong nature make for skilled warriors backed up by reliable weaponry, as you can see from even this basic trooper. And while there’s no love lost between the Leagues of Votann and Humankind, the resurgence of Chaos and ascendent xenos hordes mean there are usually more pressing concerns than fighting each other.

Lastly, they say it will be a few months before we see them, but we’re sure there will be teasers and lore galore in the meantime! Now, let’s check out some of our favorite conversions we’ve seen!

Vostroyan Squatborn can make a decent cover of almost any feature they can get their bodies behind. And even though these are small in size, they’ve each got a lot of hobby love thrown in.

Plasma Tank Commanders reinforced their ranks as well. What they lacked in an invuln save, they made up for in firepower.
