It used to be available from 4A miniatures (I think):

But it doesn't seem to be in the shop anymore. You could maybe try contacting them, to see if they can find one for you?

Man, your motor pool is growing like crazy! Snorri and Olaf are easy favorites, even without the poetry. How is this army on the table? Any battle reports or in-game photos? Wonderful work!

In more Squat related news... I appear to have started a bit of sculpting again ... Dutch is nearly finished ...

Who's Dutch? Well... I could tell you but he ordered me to "Get to the chopper!" ...

Shouldn't "Dutch" be a Space Marine character? After all, he should be driving a Predator...

Probably not in a Squat Astra Millitarum army ... Maybe if this was a Space Marine army...

These are Catachan Squats... if Arnie, out of the Predator, was anything from the WH40k universe, he'd be a Catachan Jungle Fighter ... he doesn't need power armour or tanks to kick arses.

Definitely not out of place.

I have Poncho on the sculpting table next... he's the one with the grenade launcher .

Love that Dutch conversion (well more of a sculpt). Lovely reconfig of the RTB01 bolter too, so much cleaner then my version on my SM Lieutenant.

I did some Predator inspired stuff, in my Scout Killteam, such a great film.

The sculpting on these really IS quite impressive.

Hawkins is nearly finished and I've now got Mac on the table.

I've been thinking about how to depict Mac (he's on the table now) and I realised that there were two moments in the film that really stick out for me... first was the scene where he is shaving (not applicable... my dwarfs have beards) and breaks the razor and the other one is where he stabs the scorpion on Dillon's back... now, on Catachan, the scorpions would tend to be bigger so I have a little leeway on size but it would certainly be a shame not to include one on the end sculpt...

Brilliant. Makes me want to go watch the film again. 80s action and sci-fi are my go-tos after the family is in bed and I drag out the hobby stuff for an hour of painting before I crash. Aliens is the default, but Predator is due...

Your sculping skills are awe-inspiring! Poncho's grenade launcher barrel needs a bigger hole though.

Love all of your work on these little lads - we are all spoilt for choice with Squat inspiration at the moment.

Your sculpting is fantastic, really first rate. If you have a top ten tips or summink do feel free to share with those of us that are less proficient (but keen to steal tips from the skilled)!

Seeing as I am in the mood for sculpting at the moment, I have dug out a veteran unit that just needs arms sculpting and also a plastic body to build Colonel 'Iron-hand' Straken from.

I'll post some pix once I have got a little further with Straken... but here is the WIP veteran unit (with shotguns from Anvil Industry):

Brilliant. Straken has so many great iterations, and this one tops the list.
