Squats are now cannon and will be joining the underhive.  :eusa_clap:

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

Squats were squated before my time so I have only heard of them. Never seen a full army before.

They have been canon for some time now, actually. There were snippets of lore here and there, but nothing official.

This is really cool and I'm hoping that we will see more of these kind of moves, on GW's part. Listening to players and the community, overall, is a nice touch on their part.

Well it's about damn time!
I choose too keep "Old Warhammer" alive with my blood sweat and tears.

It's bad that warhammer might die but it would be a tragedy if it stays dead!

I'm not sure what to make of the clocks. Is it self-parody or a jab at the fans?

You mean the Titanicus in Horus Heresy? It's getting closer and I'm hyped.

I hear younglings on Facebook whine about how stupid it is to introduce dwarfs in a Sci-Fi setting. They should start to grow some beards before they go piping about stuff they know nothing about. Grumble...

I would like to have a squat merc with my coming Inquisitors warband.
Oh, and remember GW made it personal, not you!

I'm wondering how much imagination the anti squats have. :icon_wink:

Now that would be damn right cool. Maybe the Karadon Overlords AoS models might be converted. Check out their models.

Yes, dwarfs are stupid. However elves, ogres and knights in space are a-ok. :icon_rolleyes:

And sigmarines in space! :icon_wink:

(GP .. wait, wasn't that the other way around?  Space marines first, then getting rid of the Olde World for a sigmarine world?)

Good point.

Squats come from high gravity worlds. Makes sense. Of all the races that might make it into space, then dwarfs (gyrocopters) and skaven (crazy warpstone powered engines) seem the most likely, though with rather different levels of finesses or safety.
