Pics


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Ten painted scions. Also got another 10 part built for 2 ten man squads, and a built command squad with 4 volley guns. Aim to sculpt 2 5 man melta squads.

The squats in painting will finish my vet guard squads. 5 squads, in with option to be melta or plasma, and 2 plasma and 2 melta. The command squad has 3 plasmas and the standard, as i wanted to use the cool model. Sculpted two commanders cause it was fun, so blah. Most squats have sculpted beards, shades, or something to make them look less samey. Mostly plastic, which i prefer to metal. So far got flesh done and moving onto red.

Scion commander and commanders of squat prepainting. Oddly pics showing on my phone as sideways, but hey ho. Theme for commanders is big beards, axes, peg legs, cigars and eyepatches.

Command squad with volley guns. Not sure how well balanced the volley guns look, maybe too back heavy, but came out okay. Much happier with commander with power mace/club thing

Too lazy to paint, so put some arms on scions. Feeling good abput squad leader with bolt pistol. Just need to bulk arm out with a bit of milliput and it'll look good.

Not squats, but an army I sold on ebay. Bit gutted but I dont need two vet lists, and while an arbrite army is cool it is not squat cool. I had originally wanted the enforcers to be my vet list, and my squats to be infantry blobs, but i ended up making my squats vets as the stats seemed more squat-like. Got some lovely ebay feedback so looks like they found a good home.

Begining of scion conversions. Some will require more work than others. The sqauts where damaged models, mostly donated by kind members of a facebook group (you know who you are, thanks for help). Estimate they'll be done march, based on current laziness.

Where I am with my scions. Guildmasters are commissars, though may change their weapons to axes or at least smaller more balanced looking swords. Both plasma gun squads are now almost completed sculpted. Squats without arms will be sculpted soon. Will make 2 five man melta squads, a melta command squad, and a five man flamer squad. Plan to try and press mould another 5 scions to add to flamer squad. Had tried to use the press mould method before, but realised it'll only work if I do it before I put on the backpacks, visors, and helmet fins.

Group shot of vet list. Pics a bit washed out, but you get the idea. Loads of painting to do. Once finished and varnished maybe get some coloured shrubs for bases to add a bit of contrast. Seeing as painr scheme is basically greens, reds, and black think id go for a blueish shrub for contrast.

But more painting done on arms and hats. Still not sure what colour to paint my commanders coat. I was thinking a dark grey. I feel painting whole coats green would make the models overly green, so just painting hems green.

Post by: Urusei_yatsura


Thanks. They are a fun army to do, but the plastic squats can be a pain to work with. Awful mould lines, hard to get plastic squats in good condition on the cheap, and only three basic types. Moreover, they tend to look very samey unless you sculpt little bits on them like beards and shades. Despite that the details are great, the bald head with the shades is great to sculpt on, and your models will prob be in full cover at all times (though unable to return fire as they cant see over the wall).

Another green highlight done, a highlight then that colours done. Also chose colour for commanders coats. Going for a dark grey. I hate painting black, so any colour that lets me avoid it is good really, and it will be dark enough that the collars and cuffs will still pop.

Been struggling to get sufficent time and motivation to paint, though i've managed to get a bit further on in highlighting the green sleeves. To distract myself i've had some fun painting eyepatches and coats on my command figures, and have made a start on the standard bearer. I have uni work to finish, so will have to take a step back for a bit. Hopefully i'll still get time to sculpt here and there, so can give the scions some love.

20 sculpts half done, really shaping up now. Thinking 2x 5 man melta. 5 man flamer. Command with plasma. Also tempted to try press moulding again, before i sculpt anymore detail. Could add 5 to flamer squad to bring it to 10. Last time i tried to press mould it was a disaster but hoping itll work better due to lack of detail at this stage. Any experiences of press moulding would be welcome?

First press moulded scion was awful, but next two are much better (they are two up front on clean bases). Had to use grenades to cover a point that keeps coming out of the mould badly, and the feet details keep coming out badly (note half of the foot was so bad i cut oit off and will resculpt it), but overall im happy with what ive managed to achieve.

Time for quick bit of army fluff, somewhat inspired by the way both Trump and Brexit have affected people. I'm not trying to make any value judgments through my fluff, but am interested in the way the same event is creating such a polarized reaction, with one side being depicted as overly pessimistic, and the other side being depicted as naïve.

I am basically building two armies, who I see as being the two different reactions to the plight of the squats. One side is my mech vet list, who are the remnants of a cluster of squat home worlds. Whilst they have succeeded in surviving the tyranid onslaught, they have endured massive casualties, resulting in a crisis within squat culture and identity. The survivors are rebuilding their forces, and on a galactic scale are roughly equivalent to the Tau, being unable to rival the power of the Imperium of man, but having the potential to grow again and become a more powerful race. Since the great tryannic wars the survivors exhibit a more antagonistic relationship with the imperium, having become more insular, and less trusting of other races. Some of the older squats worry that their race has become arrogant, and is in danger of angering the imperium, whilst others argue that the imperium had betrayed its duties to the squats, when it declined to help in the fight against the Tyranids. These individuals have the ear of the leading councils, and have been able to sway the new Squat empire into asserting its independence from the imperium.

Since the destruction of the old clans, squats are now lead by the Guilds, who helped build new cities, and led the effort to reclaim old holds. Squats began to cluster around these individuals, replacing the old clan system with guild allegiance, led by elected councils. Membership of these councils is based on wealth, prestige, ability and honour. Only the most charismatic and powerful squats can hope to join these councils, or gain the favour of their rulers, and as a result many squats can be seen on the battlefront wearing elaborate hairstyles, and feigning indifference to the destruction around them.

Whilst many squats are satisfied with this society, others have been traumatized by the destruction wrecked during the tyrannic wars, and have began to form into a doom cults (as represented by my scion list). They are known as the nameless ones. These individuals see squat society as essentially doomed, and have taken a vow to do all they can to delay this end, by donning the cult's armour and selling their lives dearly on the front lines of the most destructive warzones. To join the cult these individuals must shave off their beards, and renounce both their identity, and all of the personal honour they had accumulated. Their wealth is then collected and used to fund the cult, who use their finances to buy the best weaponry, bought from the guildmasters, who control the factories.

The nameless ones are reviled within squat society, as the denial of personal honour is seen as a heresy. Despite this the armies of the squats are often reliant upon these individuals, and as a result have been forced to accept them. On the battlefield the nameless ones are often accompanied by junior members of the guilds, so that they can be watched over to ensure that their actions are compliant with the squattish way of war. Dark rumours surround the nameless ones, alleging that they have used dammed technology, increasing their numbers through cloning. This would be an affront to all other squats, as the thought of a life without ancestry is abborent within squat society. Furthermore, it is rumoured that the nameless ones favour a reunification with the imperium, viewing it as the only way to secure a future for squats in a hostile universe.

A civil war threatens to break out, and other factions prepare to take advantage and steal the technology of the squats. It is a dangerous time, and noone knows how it will end.

Did five pressmoulds in the end. I was having issues getting the feet to cast right, which is why 3 of them have peglegs now, as you can see in pics. I feel if I did it again I could get it to work better, but figured getting five models out of it was good enough for my needs.

I also pulled the head off one sculpt and put a head from the plastic squats on it (the one with hat with hat and beard removed).

Just visor, helmet fin, and backpacks to sculpt now.

Thanks, someone had actually pointed out they look a bit penis-like before I put the fins on them, so eggsy is an improvement. I actually find the sculpting relaxing, its the painting that's the slog, which is why I haven't did any for ages now. Will need to hop back on the painting station soon if I'm ever going to get my Vets finished, but with a dissertation to complete, and a needy pet dog, finding the time and the motivation is impossible at the moment.

Thank you. Link you posted not working. Have actually reached point where i have all the troops I need, aside from maybe a vet squad with flamers. Once i start my new job need to think about vehicles. Thinking ramshackle games rhebok APCs for vets, and taurox with wheel conversions for scions. Will also have to pick up some plasma guns and melta guns to arm scions.

I see. To be honest I conciously avoid anything that needs a flight stand, as they always fall over. After 30 hours of painting its not nice to see something fall off a table. I do plan to put in a knight titan into the scion list at some point, but think ill stick to a standard with slight conversions, as squats use imperial tech. Be nice to have a model that shows some linkage.

Thank you. I had wanted some storm troopers for my standard mech vet list, and had decided that i had wanted to reuse damaged squats. When you buy them second hand there are always a few that have been melted down by plastic glue, or badly converted.

Started with the two squads of five i had painted, then i sculpted another 15 to bulk these squads up to 10 each and get a command squad. Ive now sculpted another 25, to make 3 melta squads, a flamer squad, and another command squad. Tempted to sculpt another 5 to make flamer squad a 10 man squad, but may leave this till a later date. Its one of those armies that keeps expanding, but i need to stop sculpting so i can get painting.

As a sculpt they are quite simple, no small detailed bits, lots of big flat areas. Makes it an easy but effective sculpt, and looks harder to do than it actually is.

Cant get much more done till I get some dettol and strip the paint off the arms i've got. Have got some painting done, but getting the dark angels green sections painted is taking ages, so not much progress worth showing.

In consequence I'm going to sculpt the last 5 troop i wanted for my flamer squad, documenting it step by step. Plan is to sculpt one then pressmould it to make four duplicates.

Boring stage first, building a base to sculpt on. I have some shoes off a squat someone else chopped up, so i put some sprue bits on. I also shaved off the pouches around the squat legs.

Next step is to put some miliput on. No need to be to neat, as i can shave it down. Key thing is to get it into the right rough shape, and make sure its not leaning backwards or forwards.

Once milliput dries out I sculpt armour panels on back and front, which is tidied up once it hardens. Then added shirt to sides of panels. I then had to shave down the top of the model, having made it too tall.

After letting it dry again, i added the collar and gave the model a brown wash. This helps me see any buts that need shaved down. When puttig on the collar i always make it to tall, so i can shave it down for a smoother finish (not sure why this picture is upside down). It then let it harden, then sculpt helmet orb, and boot cuffs (i assume thats what they get called?). Next step will be press moulding. Prefer to do it now before adding backpack, as the gap between back pack and helmet causes issues when press moulding. I could add visors and helmet fin, but prefer to do it after press mould so the models arent all looking in the same direction.

Bit more work done on scion. Extended front armour plate a bit, filled in sone gaps, and smoothed out some bumps. Gave it green wash, which will hopefully not show any more flaws to fix.

Also, finally painted the dark angels green base onto my squats. Still got black though, which tends to be more fiddly and annoying. Will highlight after that, then metal, then beards.

First successful press mould. First three attempts where disasters as I couldn't make a mould where the sides lined up.

The detail on this one is okay, though one side is a bit awful, if salvageable. Will shave stuff fown with a craft knife, and resculpt where necessary.

Thanks for the support. Only 5 scions left to do then thats them done. Got 4 rejected press moulded scions so far, and 2 useable, so need to practice my mould making. If i did it again i would prob try a resin mould instead.

On plus side begining to paint the black on my squat vets, so should have some progress shots on them soon.

Also, though not too clear in pick, I smoothed down the scions and resculpted the scion's collars. Also got some helmet fons on them.

First attempt at beards. Tried drybrushing with white, but it looked crap so I added some grey to mix to tone it down a notch. I then half drybrushed and half stroked the paint on. Relatively happy as it looks like my older squats.

Newly painted guy on left, old paintjob on right.

Also found time to add a bit of depth on the skin of the squats i had already painted. Not sure if it was the different wash i had used, but the skin on my older paint job was a bit flat. Added some elf flesh, then a elf flesh/ skull white highlight and they look much better.

Thanks. All vet squads so 3 squads with 3 meltas, 2 with 3 plasma, and 2 command squads with 3 plasma. Once i'm done painting I aim to convert 3 heavy flamers to switch in and out of the meltagun squads. I am envisioning them having added heat sheilding, and a closed visor. Should be a fun sculpt.

Thank you. The shoulder mounted guns are just conversions of the old rogue trader heavy bolters. I aim to show how I made them later, when I make some for my scion list. Nothing complex, just chopping off a few bits and reassembling with plastic glue.

More squat work done. Ive did a bit more sculpting on heavy flamers.

I had put marine arms on the bodies with a cadian flamer, but they had looked a bit crap so using squat arms again. Plan on using the flamer nozzles from the grey knight incinerators, putting them onto the roguectrader heavy bolters.

I have also finished the highlight on all the dark angels green sections. Just black bits, metal highlights, and bases to go.

Finished a subtle blue/black highlight on the black. Helps give it a more matt black look. One more highlight with more blue, then im nearly done.

Working on my heavy flamers, using grey knight incinerators for the nozzle. Not sure if i will attach fuel cannister to shoulder mounted unit, or have a cannister on the squats backs.

Beginning the bases. I had run out of graveyard earth, and had decided to try a vajello paint instead, as the new GW paints tend to be poor matches for old paint ranges. Its a good match, thankfully.

Thanks. The rogue trader lasguns have a much longer barrel than the new ones, so look a little too big for squat models, giving them that sniper like look. Weird proportions are part of the old skool charm.

Notably, still not started or finished basing, and have instead begun painting flamer command squad. Will prob have them painted before i finish bases.

More progress on shotguns. Milliput will go on tomorrow, though bit naffed off as at least 10 to 12 of the plastic squats i bought are unusable due to major melting of detail due to plastic. Can get arms off them, so not a complete loss, but nothing about the damage on the listing.

Thanks for offer, but got enough useable squats from that lot to finish up my list. 32 squats, but half are melted down the side, and the rest need some spot work to use (ie cover ups with extended beards). Still leaves me more than enough to finish this army, and enough arms to finish my scion list. Have left negative feedback, and moved on. Should have tried for partial refund, but cant be bothered with the fuss. Got another 29 squats ordered too from a different buyer, so hopefully they will be in better condition.

Your dead right on the name, from the band rather than the manga, though i have read a good few volumes of that and its much funnier than her other work.

Thanks for compliment. Means alot from someone with your sculpting skills. Always wanted gas mask ogryns, but will never get to scions if i keep getting diverted. Something for the backburner. Still got my flesh tearer list to finish too, which has been unloved for a long time (really just terminators and tanks to do).

Space fleet? Love the eldar ships, they where gorgeous.

Thanks astartes, anvil are fast to send, and minimal flash. Would use again.

Little bit of painting done. This should be last of the standard squats i paint for my army (barring new edition changes), but shotguns seem a good place to finish up on.

Havent done any more work on shotguns, but decided to take stock of whats been painted with an army shot. Think some violet or light blue flowers can be added to bases to finish them off, and not entirely pleased with the scheme (or my photography), but their coming along.

Thanks. Plastic squats are suprisingly easy to get. No where as popular as metal ones. In odd case of blog overlap i have squats from the other squat blog to paint up. You can see them in back.

You should start. I find it easier to paint when I know I can space it out with some nice build projects. Building troops is much more fun than painting, so i tend to treat it as a reward for painting.

Captain, libarian, and honour guard. Honour guard where my first major conversion project, with shoulder pads and robes sculpted in milliput.

I use gold for fleshtearer vets, which explains the gold bling look.

Forgive the undrilled meltaguns, it was after all done years ago before i took a break from warhammer.

Will put up pics of the jump pack section of my list on next few posts. Will put up mech infantry sections later, as i never finished these.

4 assualt squads. You can really see improvement in my painting in these. Last unit has a much better and deeper red. All unit markings on knee pads. Blue facial tattoos show the tribal side to flesh tearers in original fluff, when they where basically vampire cavemen. Much better than the new 'emo' vamp lore.

Couldnt be bothered painting so did some converting instead. Plan on making 3 to 4 squads of human miners (van saar models, which proxy normal guard squads). I got some victorua lamb heads, to make some females. Worked quite well, female warrior without ridiculous super space boobs and heels. She reminds me of that latino woman in aliens 2.

Not sure wether ill bother adding hair yet. Looks quite good as is.

More flash tearer stuff. Converted stern guard and a sanguinary priest on foot. Sternguard have converted shoulder wings, added trophy heads, and facial tattoos. Was trying to get across savage caveman vibe.

It cost a small mortgage back in the 90's, but I found this little beauty in a charity shop for a tenner, plus games. Had to pay £25 for a controller, but well worth the ten minutes of nostalgia before the pixelated graphics gave me a headache!

Back on topic for your blog, Urusei. The Squats are looking great, and those Flesh Tearers look escpecilly crisp. Great stuff.

Any Squat inspired vehicles coming?

I plan on using these to modify some chimeras. http://www.modelsandminis.com/Wheeled_Chimera_Conversion_Kit/p2965327_16967486.aspx

Ill take the same approach to modifying some taurox for my squat/scions.

I never get round to painting tanks. My flesh tearer infantry are essentially done, aside from my terminators, but none of my vehicles are painted. Its a very different form of painting, and ive never been too intrested in it admittedly

I decided not to use drills or anything like other people have. Squats use imperial tech, so i dont feel they should have different vehicles from other factions.

Post by: Bash the Bosh


Sounds like a plan Chief. You don't see many Taurox' on here, so that will be great to see.

It's good to get a different point of view on painting. I've always preferred painting tanks to troops. The amount of weathering on my tanks looks proportionate, whereas my infantry tend to get a bit overwhelmed, despite my best efforts to curb it.

The weathering techniques are so different, and the big flat spaces on vehicles freak me out. No idea how to go about shading and highlighting them, as im so used to painting small models.

Now i think about it, the bigggest things i ever painted were dreadnoughts.

Scouts and dreadnoughts.

Actually like the plastic scouts more than the metal ones. Paint much better.

The dreads are the only thing i ever weathered. It looked quite good, but i had never bothered to do weathering on anything else.

Finally got dissertation work done, so got a bit of work done. Really happy with how they came out. Thats my shotgun vet squads filled out. May even get them painted soon. (Was annoyingly one flamer short though)

Ps. If anyone has hooded shadow warrior heads get in touch. Trying to source them for a project.

This was only meant to be some shotguns, but its expanded to three squads. Will be slow progress but once done i will get on with some inquisition.

Managed very little aside from two highlights. Got 4 chimeras though, and plastic heads for an inquisition force (could only get six sadly, had hoped to find more hooded heads.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Also, just bought 16 troops in void armour with berets off anvil industries. Will come with 4 heavy phase guns and 12 mg42s (will be 2x6 acolytes with storm bolters and 4 with plasma). Lovely models, cant wait to assemble. 6 more henchman made from empire great swords, hooded elf heads, and skitari bits will go with this as power sword armed acolytes, and redemptionists will be inquisitors.

Three acolyte squads built. Two all stormtroopers. One is 4 plasma (think that legal, may be better splitting plasma across squads). Plan to colour the little shields on berets for squad markings.

Anvil industries where great. One set of legs where missing and a replacment was sent out in seconds. The only issue is grenader legs, which dont fit the torsos. I think they are older models, and its made clear they need work on the website.

I think the heavy armoured legs would fit the torsos brilliantly, but to get the grenader legs to fit i had to shave the bottom of the torsos down, and remove pouches. I then pinned torsos and filled gaps. Putting pouches on torsos to hide bits i cut off. Would prob advise others to go for other legs in the range, but i love the knee pads.

2 acolyte squads done. Fighty squad and shooty squad. Liking anvil arms for guns, but the axe packs are pretty disapointing. No where enough arms on avaiable sprues so you need to buy loads extras. Would advise avoiding them

First Inquisition squat painted. Famcied a break from bulk painting.

Suprisingly hard to get a good colour scheme for the inquisition, as trying to get away from anything too Spanish inquisition or supremacist. Seem to have ended up with TMNT foot soldiers.

In any case its nice to paint blue tones rather than earthy colours. Now schemes sorted will get round to other 6.

You are certainly getting there .

I am hoping that I can paint my little army to a similar standard... but 9 miniatures doesn't make an army (that's as far as I've got at the moment).

Your patience for painting is truly enviable .

Really nice work and a very cohesive force

Post by: Urusei_yatsura


Thanks. Think your army's twice the size of mine so painting it may be quite the task, but the pride that comes afterwards will be worth it.

My advice is that you switch between the different ranges you have used to avoid boredom setting in. That and maybe paint heroes individually to a higher level for a change of pace. It's a thankless task but worth it in the end, and your off to a good start. At least you have some great sculpts to paint, whereas In having to paint to cover sloppy sculpts.

Chopping up some classics. Plan to turn hearthguard into crusaders, but needed to remove the silly bits like horns, and added more face plates. Love plastic squats but some of the metal ones are just a bit too much. Their less cartoony and fantasy looking now, and the excess decoration will look good amongst my inquisition list.

The servitor will be a priest with eviserator.

Getting further with the paint. Decided on Orange rather than red for the plasma/sword to make it a bit different from other squats. Kinda regret it as its hard to get a good coat done, but should work in the end.

Post by: Urusei_yatsura


Yeah, he's also the only one with armour, which seems fitting for the inquisition.

I view him as more of the muscle than the guy in charge, so didn't want him to stand out from his squad too much. Got some fanatic redemptionists I aim to use for Inquisitors, and aim to use the pope looking one destined to be the big boss.

Used a spare scion body to build him up.

Plan to make an inquisition guard list, with a mix of necromunda, squat,and empire great sword conversions.

Thanks. Had a broken standard so why not. If it wasnt broken i may have been more hesitant, seeing how much the standards go for.

It gives me a less kitsch psychic. I have a living ancestor for my inquisition list, and you can really see a difference between them.

I don't know squat about Squats but you make them look really cool. You have a couple mighty old GW paint pots on your shelf there. Are they still viable? Haven't seen those since I was a teenager.

Thanks. Always loved squats when i was young, and even though the models are a bit one dimensional a bit of basic sculpting skills and you can make a cool lust.

As for the paints just add a bit of water and they revive. Once they run out though they can't be replaced. That's why I've recently been getting into vajello game colour paints. They're normally a better match for old paints than the newer games workshop ones. Only really use the games workshop washes now.

I used to have some 90s paints too but flung them out. Got sick of the white plastic tops they used to have. Absolute nightmare to open.

Thanks for the feedback. I went for red as their was so much green in my colour scheme, and the models needed some spots of a warmer colour to break them up a bit. Think the trick is to only paint a few bits red and not go overboard.

Happy with how my storm troopers can out but admittedly a bit intimidated by how many I have to paint!

Been sculpting rather than painting lately. Finished my psyker and enjoyed sculpting it, so I've chopped the head off a damaged standard bearer and am sculpting 2 more.

Also finished sculpting the rest of my scions, and added a cheeky hand signal on one of them.

Post by: Urusei_yatsura


The vehicles will be nowhere near as complex as yours. Have 7 Chimeras with wheel conversion kits for mech vets. They will likely all be given forgeworld turrets (twin bolter/autocannon), though toying with the idea of a double flamer Chimera or two.

The scions will be getting 4 taurox with wheel conversion kits (blood and skull industries or zinge kits probally.

Then will add three demolishers.

My squats are imperial aligned, so I want imperial vehicles with a few perks.

Still got 15 scions to paint first though, as well as 5 battle psykers and a commisar.

Hope to put off vehicle building for a while yet.

With only 21 troops left, you're closer to building vehicles than you may want to be !

The vehicle choices are completely cool for your army and the wheel conversions will make them just different enough to be different.

I assume you mean Leman Russ variant Demolishers and not Rhino derived ones? I think the Vindicator with some Predator sponsons would make a cool Demolisher Proxy

Def getting too close to vehicle time for comfort.

Think standard leman Russ demolisher for this list, but building an inquisition list to add some razorbacks and potentially a landraiders so I can give a nod to the old rogue trader lists.

For everyone else not linked to Facebook group have attached finished pics.

Not posted for a while, so bit of progress to show.

Chimeras built with wheels kit and forgeworld turrets.

Also got pics of a baneblade, part built. I put the track guard on wrong, so had to chop it up to get the sponsons on it.

Did manage to do some sculpting, adding a nice squat reference and some runes.

Its a quiet old blog so keep forgetting to post here, but have actually made some progress.

Cant face painting at the moment, so have been stripping, converting, and building bikes.

Particularly keen on the little mods on the older bikes. The newer mk2 squat bikes are untouched, as they are pretty much perfect as is.

That is some great work; fantastic painting to go with some amazing conversions, shoulder-mounted Plasma Guns are a really great idea!

Are those Wheeled Chimera Kits from Models and Minis ?

Yup. Really great kits, but easier to fit on newer chimera kits. Tge older chimeras dont really fit together that brilliantly, so required a bit of chopping.

Thanks for compliments. Never got why no one else seems to have converted the old squat heavy bolters. Always seemed a fairly obvious thing to do. I think people just get scared of chopping up old models.

On other news, began putting together some deathriders/ squat bikes. Plan another 5 in long run. Just need to wait till i can get some on ebay.

Going to do a few progress posts, as i'm not likely have time to paint for next few months.

Hopefully these will show how far ive managed to get, and motivate me to push on when i have some free time again.

To begin, heres the current state of my imperial squats (crusaders and acolytes)

Will post scion list next.

To be fair no one would think to look down when they answer the door.

Thats why they have hoods, they need the extra height.

Anyhoo, here where i am with scion list, including my favorite called 'up yours squat' with sculpted finger gesture. Again, needs vehicles.

Headswaps too .

The scions are plastic Squats that have had armour sculpted on to them.

As always, I am looking forward to seeing these new guys painted .

Yeah the packers look like a head swap with the Standard bearer body and the right one is from the Squat Commander and the left looks like a Squat heavy weapon guy. Very nicely done.

Yeah, my living ancestors are just the metal standard bearers with a head swap, beard sculpt, and the standards replaced with skulls.

If you buy enough squat lots you end up with quite a few broken standards over time, so thought id make use of them

Great thing about head swaps with squats is how easy it is to hide the joints with beard hair.

Scions are mostly space dwarfs bodies i sculpted over, though a few are from press moulds (found it a pain to do so would avoid doing that again).
