Or made them look more Van Saar. Or focused on mining suits [akin to the new GSC], and played up the exo-armour more.If they had ditched the quilted vest and made them look more like Orlock, rhe squats would’ve been sweet. Or given them armor like the IG had back then.
Yeah, I agree. Sadly, they missed all that. Lots of folks kitbashing Khadrons and whatnot into everything you've described these days though.Or made them look more Van Saar. Or focused on mining suits [akin to the new GSC], and played up the exo-armour more.
One of my Obliterators is one of the Chaos Squat Exo-Armour minis from back in the day, with the boltgun scaled-up to be a mass of unidentifiable weaponry.
In honesty, the best design for the Squats back THEN, to give them something distinct and suited, might be the Kharadron designs NOW. Or to have preemptively made use of what became the Tau aesthetic [since the Squat Homeworlds never adhered to the Imperial Cult OR to the Cult of Mars]. The "harley davidson bikers" theme made for a good specialist unit, but felt awkward spread across the entire force.
Nice! I now have only a handful of old Squats. The obliterator mentioned above, and a couple in my Pit Slaves gang, one among my Kharadron, and a couple in my bits box (for now).And I don't know, I have about 1000 pts of kit-bashed Squats I play as Orks.
Oh wait, wait. I mean the guy with the shovel is an original sculpt.... I getz me right and ...da uver one......mixed up sumtimez.The one on the right is a converted Ork. I chop them down, trim up the teeth and ears and sculpt noses on them and job's a gud un'. The other one is an an original sculpt. I did him more than 10 years ago and pretty proud of how he turned out. I'll have to sort through my files and put some "Squat Orks" up in a gallery here.
Oh, and the fridge is ....a very, very tiny fridge......
