hey,
i thought of doing a imperial guard squat army. the conversion for the infintry platoon would be easy. thunderers and replace the handgun with a lasgun. though im still deciding on which Doctrines i will take. i post some pics of how they go. won't probally be for a while since i got exams next week.

This idea is actually more common then you might think...
It is a good idea if it would be completed nicely. Don't Thunderers have those very medievel helmets and chainmails? I would use regular Dwarf warriors (not hte new ones, they suck for conversions) and file/cut away the chainmails/helmets and use GS to create new stuff.

Da Mighty Camel is right, this is a semi-common idea, but if you want to take a shot at it then go for it. When I first saw this I remembered an army I saw online a year or two ago, so i found the site (
http://www.warmongerclub.com/articles/chaossquats1.html) they're supposed to be like evil squats, but you might get some ideas from the conversions.
Contrary to what Camel said I would let them keep the chainmail and such, maybe convert them a bit and make their old stuff look like it was designed to be old looking, like articed and such (they're dwarfs, its what they do) Good luck on the army

That army is sweet. some people told me on the GW forum to use the handguns as autoguns or lasguns. though they wouldn't be very 40kish but what do u think?

Aye, I'd reach for my lizardmen instead of marines.

Convert them and use Lasguns + Imperial Insignia and I'll let you play with them, just using Dwarf models is laziness.

This was also address elsewhere I remember reading an article, about using IG rules for squats. Seems like the best ruleset to use really.

Heres another idea; take a dwarf cannon and replace the dwarf cannon barrel with an autocannon. Gyrocopters with multi lasers might make good sentinels...

Indeed, that's a good idea. With a few Dwarf Cannon bases, you could mount all your Lascannons/Autocannons on them.

As with any army, you'll find that models will he expensive, so I'll say what I always say when someone is starting a new army. Before you buy a model, get a price for the same thing off Ebay. You should usually be pleasantly surprised.

Well i will tell you one thing, make a Squat army isn´t so easy...you will have to make a lot of conversion (even with the thunderes..they have litle armour) and i have tell nothing about the tanks XD
