Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Unsquatted!

The Squats were a somewhat-loved Warhammer 40,000 race (space dwarfs, essentially) who were written out of that game system. Over time, the removal of an army from a GW game came to be known as ‘squatting’.

Well now, they are back… in Age of Sigmar?!?

These models look like they would be at home on the Warhammer 40,000 battlefield, but for now they remain an Age of Sigmar faction of Dwarf sky pirates. Well, okay then.

You aren’t fooling me, Games Workshop! I see your Ancestor Lord:

I also see the cool crystals on his base. What planet realm could these be from?

I also see what looks suspiciously like an assault cannon in the hands of one model:

This guy would look at home in the corridors of a space hulk, if you ask me.

For many more shots of this new faction, check out the article on the warhammer community website.

Just remember these are not Squats and this is not Warhammer 40,000!

    Yes, they are pretty fancy. I don’t know too much about Fantasy, but weren’t they still playable when they killed WFB and replaced it with AoS in the beginning? Good to see the dwarves are definitely back either way, and looking pretty good. Never would have thought of beard armor, but a guy (or gal … these are dwarves after all) gotta protect those precious hairs!

    As a 40K Ork player, I have so say when I look at those firearms, I start thinking they would look good for flash gitz. 🙂

      Dwarfs were an army in WFB, but they didn’t look much like these.

        That is true. I never played WFB, but I’ve seen them played and dusted the boxes some years ago when I worked part-time at a game store.
