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
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.
Mixing in some full-sized Blood Angels with an entire Squat army, this army had an amazing display board to tie them all together with. From hills and dried riverbeds to cover made from a Chimera, this army was flexing its hobby score.
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.
Finally, for some backfield support, a couple of Wyverns were spotted sporting a crisp purple and tank paint scheme giving the Emperor’s Peace in style. Click here to see the full showcase of this amazing army!
“Medic!” Don’t let your soldiers go without the medical attention they deserve! These look so incredible, we’re just stunned at the detail they were able to get into such small minis. Click here to see the full showcase of this amazing army!
Sometimes the Death Guard have to send in their special units and some of those specialist units come in small packages!
Come see one awesome mini brought to us by hobby maniac Mark Maxey. We think this may be a renegade Death Guard Squat in Exo Armor, and we love it.
