    Hi

    Just want too ask, does anyone know what happened to those lovely little stunties, children of high gravity, ork bashers extraordinare. Squats, micro kings of the galaxies centre. Anyone know?

    P.S if they've been re-released and i just didn't know about it, i only need one person to tell me to be quiet not eight.

    &quot;Oh man, look at that.&quot;
    &quot;Where?&quot;
    &quot;Over there, by that river of boiling souls.&quot;
    &quot;Well I&#39;ll be damned... it&#39;s a Starbucks.&quot;

    They decided not to put them in 3rd edition. I hear they will be coming out with them again in like a year or two but thats just a rumor. I saw a few ppl who had squat figs using them as IG.

    i have seen pics of chaos squats in thr Realm of Chaos books and all i can say is that they will need alot of work if they come back.

    i tried to upload some pics but it is a corrupted file.

    I kind of thought the squats were replaced by the salamanders space marine chapter.

    No offence and i&#39;m not being nasty but how the HELL can a space marine chapter replace a whole race of dwarfs.

    Squats are the futuristic version of the dwarves from warhammer just like the eldar are the 40K idea of elves (pretty much)

    Saying that squats ain&#39;t been around for a long time so if you didn&#39;t know fair enough.

    a heartwarming little thought, but I heard there home planet was thrown through the warp, and the rest died out. Or am I just talking bollocks?

    Squats are dead&#33; Dammit&#33; Why do you people have to keep bringing them up&#33;

    No, GW is denying they ever existed. Esentially for 3 reasons.

    1) They made 40k that much closer to just being Fantasy in space

    2) They were just Imp. Guard at T4 S4

    3) They looked as stupid as hell. I mean, the Squat bike was bigger than the rider&#33; Their heavy weapons teams had a bigger gun then four of them&#33;

    I think it&#39;s good they&#39;re gone. Who wants to hear about some drunk little midgets who can&#39;t even pick up their own guns?
    If a tree falls in the forest, and it lands on a mime, does anyone care?

    Squats where pretty cool back in the day. In 3rd edition 40k GW gave the minis and the list the axe. For the simple reasons that the minis where not that good and the Squats didn&#39;t sell very well.
    I played against them a few times and it was fun. They where a shooty IG type army, with some bikes for fast attack. I would like to see them come back with new minis and a new list.
