GW: Breaking – Squats Are Back!

  • Posted by

Looks like GW hasn’t been skipping Leg Day, because Squats are back…in Necromunda.

That’s right folks, Squats are back. Well. Squat is back is probably more accurate. See for yourself.

It all starts with a resetting of the clocks.

Looks like we have a while to wait on that Plastic Thunderhawk. Nobody mention the other clock in this picture.

When it all goes terribly awry.

Which can only mean one thing. Squats got out. They escape the phantom nega-zone where they’ve been imprisoned, and now they’re back, bigger and badder than ever.

Just look at him in all his glory. This guy is radical.

And if they’re making an appearance in Necromunda than wild speculation without any basis on observable evidence, past history, or reality as we know it can only mean ONE THING:

SQUATS ARE BACK BAYBEE. We expect they’ll be getting a full codex and release of miniatures in September. No doubt this will be the turning point of the Dark Imperium storyline, when the squats surge out of the woodworks to expose Cawl and his traitorous plan to use the Primaris Marines to take over the Imperium. Thrills! Chills! And more action than you can shake a stick at (which is a lot of action) this year from GW.

That Bounty Hunter does look radical. I lvoe that they’re doing this with Necromunda–it’s a chance to see my favorite side of the 40K world, the part with all the weird aliens that don’t have their own army. The ones that are free to be radical, because they don’t have to worry about being bogged down by rules. I wanna see either a crazy Hrud Bounty Hunter or maybe a Jokaero.

In the meantime, enjoy the only Bounty Hunter who can get the job done…half off. No questions.

  • Bakvrad

    Battle Sisters 5 minutes to go?

    • Multigeneral

      Noticed that did you? Please remain where you are. An assassination team has been dispatched to your location.

      • Amon-Alex69

        You mean a squad of suicide “rescue” , a hole in the back of the head right ?

        • Multigeneral

          Nope, definitely assassination team. Please do not attempt to run or hide, it only annoys them and you will just die tired.

          • Muninwing

            but is it a squad made of squats?

            or is it just one guy, like the video showed…?

            i get that the last part of the article was a joke, and the Sisters clock is far more interesting… but there are two important takeaways here:

            1. there is ONE squat coming to Necromunda. not gangs. one. a bounty hunter. but one. everything else is wishlisting.

            2. that sisters clock could mean something… but it could be nothing. they could be sitting on it for a reason, they could be planning something. but it’s just as likely that they did that to crank people up.

            i don’t want anyone getting their hopes up like the “plastic sisters in the trash” joke did.

    • Julien Huguenin

      Yes that got me so hyped omg.

    • Perversor

      Doomsday clock always 5 min til midnight.
      can be serious or just the running joke of sisters coming soon !

      • zeno666

        2 minutes to midnight actually :

        • euansmith

          It’s 11:59 and I want to stay alive.

            True, but Debbie Harry in her prime was more fun to look at, as I’m sure you’ll agree… lol

          • Daniel Williams

            She isn’t bad now 😉

          • euansmith

            That triggered my NWoBM Flashbacks. I might need to go and lie down and wait for my memories of smokey pubs, snake-bite, head-banger’s neck, and horrible hang-overs to pass.

          • dave long island

            lol.. I must confess IDK what NWOBM is. What’s that?

          • euansmith

            New Wave of British Metal; 1980’s – 1990’s British Metal, like Maiden, Priest, Saxon, Magnum, Def Leopard, Saxon; that kind of thing. Long hair, much denim and leather, and patches and studs galore.

          • dave long island

            Oh okay, ah yes.

    • disqus_HUXMdKxsPG

      doomsday is gonna happen first. That clock is at 2 minutes to midnight. What a shame. Lol

    • BigNorthMxO

      looks like 8 minutes.. Maybe sisters release in 8 months.. yeah.. right. *cries softly then heavily*

    • Slippy

      I wanted to post that as well but figured, if you mention that.. it will probably reset the clock.
      So thanks!

      • Bakvrad

        I have invested in the stock market of metal sisters, I don’t want them to go 😀

        • Slippy

          Lol you may be rich one day!

    • NNextremNN

      Great and you just resetted it back to start.

      • Bakvrad

        Just as planned!

        • NNextremNN

          I don’t care about squats, sister would be cool but to be honest I think I don’t want to buy a sisters army. I just want to look at the ones of others.

  • Graham Roden

    Bolt gun armed carapace armoured little dudes stumping around the table with better tanks than the imperium. Excellent plan GW

    • marxlives
      • Graham Roden

        And me

      • Andy Wise

        Funny, Mantic’s stuff always reminded me of squats. Which reminded me of fantasy dwarfs, which remind me of Tolkien, which reminds me of. Err. Myths.

        Yeah – probably everyone’s inspired by Tolkien a bit here. Props to the man.

        • NNextremNN

          Yeah and even Tolkin was inspired by already existing myths.

          • euansmith

            I don’t think that Shakespear made up a single one of his plots, and even Homer was working from earlier sources. 😉

            Caveman, “Ug.”

            Cavewoman, “Ug?”

            Caveman, “Ug!”

            Cavewoman, “Uuugh?!”

            Caveman, “UG!”

            Cavewoman, “You’re just plagiarism those Cro-magnons! Why don’t you come up with something original?”

          • NNextremNN

            Well it’s hard to come up with something new and original

            this line also has 94.600.000 hits on google surprisingly only 1 if you put it in “” quotation marks.

            At least GW found some fancy names for their races and factions they can copyright XD

      • dante13

        That mantic Dreadnaught looks like Mechwarrior awesome.

    • frank

      Well primaris having longer range bolters puts Squats in a good position to be somewhat short range squads with powerful artillery and slow moving infantry that hit hard. that said this is just one squat from the sound of it.

      • Graham Roden

        One Squat but if enough of us buy it they might realise that there’s a market for it. They’ve got the template already with the kharadron overlords.

      • euansmith

        I would be perfectly happy for GW to port Kharadron Overlords in to 40k. They are great little minis, have an nice aesthetic and even have transports.

        • NNextremNN

          I think they are a bit too magical/fantasy to really fit into 40K.

          • euansmith

            Anti-gravity Craft? Gun-style Missile Weapons? An Infantry, Heavy Weapon and Fast Assault unit already in production? Unlike the Tzaangores, they wouldn’t even need an upgrade sprue (which is a great sprue by the way. Thank you Tzeentch, my gangers are grateful for the fancy Autopistols and Chainswords).

          • NNextremNN

            They are not anti gravity. They use balloons … unlogical metal balloons filled with chaos magic at best. I still rather not see them on SciFi battlefields.

          • euansmith

            Personally, I’d leave the Anti-Gravity Generator Spheres off even if playing them in AoS, as I think that they damage the look of the vehicle; making it too busy for my tastes.

          • AmorousBadger

            But sorcerers, Deamons, ‘Void Dragons’ and magical space elves aren’t?

          • NNextremNN

            Kharadron technology makes no sense in 40K without warp/chaos magic whatever and magic does not fit Dwarfs or Squats.

          • euansmith

            GW would just have to say they are Gravatronic Levitation Spheres using ancient technology and jobs a good ‘un. Surely they don’t have to use the same fluff for the same models in the two games.

          • Arianod

            But being technologically advanced is the Squat’s thing. It wouldn’t make much sense if their anti-g tech was bulkier and less practical than the Imperium’s.

          • euansmith

            I’ve always thought they were in to “ruggedised” technology with a long work life. Plus, maybe, in 40k, those wierd globes could do more than just make the ships and little men in armour fly; maybe they also function a shield generator, like some sort of Kustom Force Field? Or provide teleportation and scanning functions. Maybe they would be used to beam raw materials directly to their Foundry.

          • Arianod

            Squats aren’t more advanced than the Imperium the way Tau / Necron /Eldar are, since they’re abhumans and their technology is STC-based like that of the Imperium. But they kept a lot of STCs that had disappeared elsewhere, and above all their understanding of technology had not degenerated into superstition. So yeah, their gear was slightly better than the Imperial average, and the big iron balloons wouldn’t make much sense.

        • frank

          id even be happy if they did something like tzaangors and gave them an upgrade kit.

    • zeno666

      Crap… I might even buy such an army >_<

  • Nyyppä

    Thei marketing people need a raise.

    • ZeeLobby

      They’re at least solid on the Windows Movie Maker.

      • Nyyppä

        Well, they have great ideas too.

        • ZeeLobby

          I mean I guess. lol. it’s the kind of stuff people in an office come up with. Personally making fun of the desires of your customers kind of shows an elitest attitude imo. But it is funny. i was never a fan of the “plastic sisters in dumpster” ad either, but maybe I’m just a weirdo…

          • bad mood

            That’s a bit harsh. For one, I am pretty sure that despite all the hate that grows out of the interwebs, the design team is made up of well minded nerds that very much understand and sympathy with the community. But at the end of the day, GW is a business and has to make decisions that yield profit. It’s not like all their ideas that make it through are good either, but at least they are doing something. And it’s a lot when you think about it, compare that to the times of 4th edition! Other companies wouldn’t even admit that they are blatently denying that the community does have wishes – looking at you PC game companies.

          • ZeeLobby

            Eh, it’s probably harsh. Like I said, that’s just how I personally take it. They’re like little jibes that let you know that they know and that they think it’s funny. People in the community think it’s funny too, but some people don’t think it’s funny. Personally I don’t care about sisters/squats/etc. But I know people who really do care, and for them, these things can rub the wrong way.

            You’re right, and in the end they’re a business, and might just not care about those people, or may just think they don’t negatively impact them. Who knows. But for someone whose watched Space Marines receive 10 updates, which look cooler and play better, and is still playing with metal sisters models and a half-attempted codex, it might just seem unnecessary.

          • dave long island

            Well… yes and no. I mean, at least weirdo-ish… LOL… JK ya! 🙂

          • ZeeLobby

            Haha. it’s OK. Weirdo is OK 😀

          • dave long island

            Ya thats pretty much all of us on here, LOL 🙂

          • euansmith

            Speak for yourself, nose-picker! I, for one, have a certificate saying I’m normal.

          • dave long island

            Haw haw!! 🙂 Classic euansmith!

          • Brian Griffith

            Is it really making fun of your customers if you’re simultaneously announcing a release that fulfills that desire?

          • ZeeLobby

            I would hardly consider one squat, or a new celestine model, fulfilling the desires of anyone who actual wants the squat army to return, or sisters of battle to finally be updated.

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

            True

          • NNextremNN

            Yes it is especially if it is just one model instead of an army for a special game and not the main game.

          • euansmith

            I was hoping for a full Squat gang.

          • NNextremNN

            But does that even makes sense? Arn’t the gangs competing to gain influence and power and to advance in the hive hierarchy and nobility? I think a pure squat gang as a fully abhuman organisation has no chance to actually compete with more “pure” human houses. The imperium is far to racists to let something like this happen.

          • euansmith

            Unless they live in tunnels below the Sump, down in the deep dark, where humans fear to tread, and only come up for loot. Maybe they are an infiltration team from a disabled Squat Prospector in hidden orbit around Necromunda.

          • Erich Schoenholtz

            They had squat miners as a gang in necromunda. Basically the leader was a prospector and they’d mine the under hive.

          • NNextremNN

            Yeah I also think it’s pretty mean. This video basically says we know what you want, we even know the jokes but we simply don’t care about you.

      • zeno666

        lol

    • Kabal1te

      They should be commended at the very least. This video is one of the best things out of GW ever.

      • ZeeLobby

        Can agree with that.

    • Nosebleed

      Agreed. They really got their touch points right!

      Had a good laugh at the video!

    TL;DR? BOLS group meet at Warhammer World

    I thought the other day it would be cool to arrange a meet up of BOLS commenters at Warhammer World. My idea was to pick a Friday in mid September as kids will be in school so less busy, weather should be ok for travelling, and long enough in the future that people can arrange/save up as some people might chose to make a long weekend of it.

    We could reserve a bunch of tables and all bring 1000 point armies that way we could play games 2 Vs 2 and meet new people, plus easier to transport smaller armies if you have far to travel. Got Bugman’s bar for food and drinks, plus Warhammer World is just an awesome place to go and see the exhibits (and spend too much in the Forge World store). Every hobbyist should go there at some point and this could be good for those with no one to go with.

    Everyone can wear a silly name label with their Disqus name on it and just meet people you tend to agree with (or argue with) what do people think, would anyone be interested? Perhaps if there is a lot of interest the BOLS guys could post this as an article.

      Can you have sticky notes that act as upvotes

    • LankTank

      Sweet. you buying my plane ticket from NZ?

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      Its a great idea but its a hell of a way for me from Orkney! Theres always a chance I’ll be ‘doon sooth’ at the time though.

      • euansmith

        ORKney, where the Knights go “WAAARGH!”

        Darn, now I want an Arthurian themed Ork army; Gorkwain, Gorkheris, Garork, and Aorkvaine, and their morther Morkgause and father King MOAW!

    • Moonsaves

      “My idea was to pick a Friday in mid September as kids will be in school so less busy”

      But doesn’t that exclude a good 50% of the commenters?

  • Kabal1te

    Now we just need to wait for the other two clocks to break

    • Cergorach

      Are you ready to storm the GW halls with me? LET’S GO! (bringing spiked bats is not optional, it is required!)

    • ZeeLobby

      It’d be awesome if that actually worked. We need a man on the inside…

  • Matthew LeBlanc

    That funny. Squats before sisters. Now thats insault to inquiry

    • frank

      One squat mini released before the sisters of battle as an army are redone is a huge insult.

      • ZeeLobby

        Well technically sisters had their one model (unit?) released in plastic, so who knows if the army is coming…

    • Sir Postalot

      Lol sisters got their daemons got models months ago.

    • GWELLS

      Well it could be that they were just planning the one model release for the Squats with maybe a team for Necromunda later.

      Remaking an entire army takes longer.

      Also lets not forget its only 5 minutes to midnight on sisters I think we just need to be patient I think 🙂

  • bad mood

    I don’t know what to say, after all those years……always?

    After all the squatting that has happened, squatting seizes to be an appropriate verb. I’m deep in shock. But even if they really bring them back as an army choice, how? Will the Indomitus Crusade just find them in a warp storm? Will they be retconned into always having been a part of auxiliary IG? Will this mean no army will ever be squatted again, I mean discontinued?

    Bursting the bubble though, its just one mini. From my perspective, the chances of sqauts returning at this point any time soon are about as high as a GW beastmen 40K army (They also have a mercenary mini – hurr durr)

    • ZeeLobby

      I mean lets get honest here, the current galaxy setting is ripe with plot holes. They could come out of any of them.

    • GWELLS

      I personally don’t think they will be brought back as an actual army. I feel that they will remain more confined to specialist games like Necromunda, though I do expect a Squat team for Necromunda in the future. Specialist games I feel is where some of the more niche aspects of 40k can thrive better as they can appear but don’t have to be shoe-horned into the great galactic conquest.

      • ZeeLobby

        Eh, I think a whole team might even be too far. I imagine it’ll be a one-off just like the beastman bounty hunter. A cool way to tip some nostalgia. I wouldn’t mind being proved wrong though :D.

        • GWELLS

          True, well we’ll see one way or another. Though this does kind of reek of more just throwing the older players a bone after all these years without any real interest in developing an actual army.

          • ZeeLobby

            Yeah. I mean if they bring back other “fantasy” races in 40K they might as well just combine it with AoS. AoS already pretty much got “squats” hehe.

          • euansmith

            Maybe they will do a WD gang that allows players to just use all the Mercs in a Dirty Half Dozen style of gang?

          • frank

            Yea but at least they will give us some idea the direction to model squats in the future lol.

          • ZeeLobby

            Haha. The dream lives on!

          • frank

            Indeed, at least the dream that we might get to see them do a gang of them in Necromunda as miners or something.

        • LankTank

          That and a plastic ratling box I think will be the full extent in the next 5 years

          • ZeeLobby

            Haha, most likely.

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        Ruleswise they already exist in 30k

    • LankTank

      To be fair how can Squats really have a full force in the lore?
      I think it makes enough sense to only have either some mercs for Necromunda, possibly a gang far in the future, and a plastic ratling set (even though the metal ones are amazing sculpts). That is a squats in the game but how could there be in any way a fully led and galactic supplied squat army?

      • Crevab

        Why not? A Space Marine chapter is 1000 guys + attendants that are near wholly self-sufficient

        • LankTank

          No theythey are 1,000 guys + attendants + constant supplies from the mechanicus + huge resources from the astra militarium and munitorium to establish their planet + massive security network of imperial systems to assist defence + a constant recruitment world or system + constant import of off world psykers for navigation etc. Also you woukd notice that there is a space marine codex, not chapter silver dragons codex. That is because space marines number thousands of worlds and can wage war on a galactic scale where a single small chapter cannot. So how could you reintroduce squats with a codex without shoe horning them in? Better they stay small and flavourful in necromunda

          • Crevab

            Hi, Codices Blood Angels, Dark Angels, and Space Wolves would like to have a word with you. As does the non-intergalatic Tau Empire

          • LankTank

            Those 3 chapters have more than 1,000 marines as they did not deviate into smaller chapter as per the big blue boy scout rules manual written by Robo Girlyman. They are still more a Legion in their composition than a Chapter. In addition they are also the progenitor of a bunch of secondary founding chapters that have a min 1,000 marine presence (but still no codex) That is why they have a far larger impact on the galaxy as a whole than small chapters, and also a theoretical lost ship of squats, and why they have their own codex.
            If you look to the Chaos side as well, the only 2 legions who have for most part stayed fairly intact and did not break into as open hostilities were the Thousand Sons and Death Guard, hence why they retain their own codex’s.
            I love squats, and would love to see them in 40k as mercs and definitely in Necroumunda, but again an army of them would just be very weak lore and a cash grab. Better to keep a bit of mystery about the begrudged lost race.

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        Demiurg, or just a stray shipful of survivors. Its a big galaxy.

        • NNextremNN

          Squats serve the IoM and are based on normal fantasy Dwarfs while some Demiurgs are allied with the Tau empire and are more like Duergar or fantasy dark Dwarfs.

          Also a small community like a ship might explain a little population, enough for Necomuda but not for a whole buch of different clans for a lot of complete armies.

      • euansmith

        It is a massive Galaxy. There could easily be Lost Mining Colonies and Foundry Ships in transit that avoided the destruction of their race. I’d love for them to come back with Hatred (Tyranids), Hatred (Orkz) and Hatred (Imperium).

        Actually, a bunch of Squats waking from hypersleep only to discover there is a Genestealer loose on their Smelter Ship could make a fun inversion of Space Hulk.

        http://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f3a81a87e92f3667cf3b1432c074c057ba5512c674bc871c722f03d17454fd6a.jpg

        • LankTank

          Yes but that is why they should make an appearance as mercs, or a sibgle platoon in a guard army etc. But to have a codex, ie a fighting force that is capable of galactic warfare, you need planetary systems, massive resources, a race that is established enough territory it can defend itself. While their are single drukhari raiders, small chaos warbands etc, they come under the umbrella of their race. To have a codex means that particular race is capable of waging war on a sector sized scale to conqueor systems and squat lore cant have that without being cheesey. But to have say a ship of 200 squats who survived, took up residence on necromunda and forged a gang? That can work without it being forced

          • euansmith

            I dunno, spaceships in 40k can be pretty freakin’ vast, with space for a huge crew; so our notional wandering band of Squats could number in their hundreds of thousands.

            Also, the table top games in 40k don’t feature vast armies. You’ve got a reinforced company on the table top at most. The game might be viewed as a flashpoint within a massive battle, somewhere that stuff gets done that impacts the larger struggle. However, they could also represent the entirety of the fight; a raid on an outlying facility for example.

            Plus, as we can see in our world, it doesn’t take a vast logistical train to suck a numerically, or even technologically, superior army to a protected war.

            Finally, I’m thinking about this more a possible fun exercise for GW to undertake (in my dreams 😉 ); something that doesn’t require any extra models or take up any extra shelf space in the shops.

          • LankTank

            While I agree about the table top only representing a flash point of a battle, that still can’t justify a codex as a codex is a representation of a galactic force where players can choose thie specific craftworld/chapter/clan rather just one ship.
            And if they decided to give them the same story as eldar, a lost civilisation surviving in a ship, then again its just shoe-horning them into the primary lore for profit. I personally would love to see squats back in Necromunda as a gang or even as a mercenarny unit with the imperium keyword. But as a whole codex? It would not fit right. The more I think about it, the new release model of GW would be very open to releases that can cross multiple factions with data sheet included in the box then in Chapter approved at the end of year. Think Squats, Keyword: Imperium. Rogue Psykers, Keyword: Corsairs, Keywords: Aeldari and Drukhari.

          • euansmith

            I really don’t think that Squats should be “Imperium”. The little guys are known to hold grudges, and, having the humans let the ‘Nids devour the Squat homeworlds as a delaying tactic is bound to rankle. Also, they wouldn’t been a need for a full Codex; GW could use something like Chapter Approved or a new Index to introduce a bunch of minor factions, like Sylvaneth Exodites, Squat Overlords and the like. It won’t happen, but I think it is fun to eye up the AoS model line for 40k projects. 😉

          • LankTank

            Well with GW making the remark of less focus on Kroot and Vespids in the Tau codex, here is fingers crossed to a Mercenary Book! Some Rogue Traders, Ork Freebooters, Kroot, Squats, Corsairs, Sylvaneth. I mean it’s a pretty steep wish list but then who saw a Squat coming into Necromunda?

          • euansmith

            A Merc book would be sweet.

    • Ak318

      Well technically they have been always existing in the 41st millenium according to the core rulebooks since at least 5th they have been mentioned as an abhuman strain living in the imperium and not extinct.

    • NNextremNN

      Technically Tzaangors are beastmen and you can build a fully AoS or 40K army out of them. But yeah I kinda doubt a squat faction. Maybe as Imperial Guard like Ogryns or ratlings.

  • ColonelFazackerley

    Pretty funny.

    I play Biel-Tan. I note that plastic apsect warriorrs dont even get a clock.

  • euansmith

    Real Sy-Fy Channel Acting! Squatnado vs Sisternami vs Thunderhaquake!

    • Matthew Pomeroy

      I would watch that!

  • memitchell

    How did we get from a great video about the Squat clock and a single Necromunda miniature to “We expect they’ll be getting a full codex and release of miniatures in September.” Is my Satire Detector clogged again?

    Let us also remember there is now a Beastman Bounty Hunter loose in the Underhive. Is a Zoat Private Investigator also in the works?

    • frank

      Id love to see Tyranid Spy PI in Necromunda haha. that said people are mostly just either overly excited for the one mini to be released, or angry that their army isn’t getting new minis. Unless these minis are GWs way of telling us expect tons of new imperium armies I don’t think that we will be seeing codex squats any sooner than we will see codex imperial beastmen.

    • LankTank

      It’s obviously a joke? o.O
      I want a heavily armed Jokaero with a cigar

      • euansmith

        “Ook” (Translation, “I love it when a plan comes together.”

  • dave long island

    If they brought Squats back then they can bring The Old World back too!!! Sorry Marco, beat ya to it! But that’s okay, you deserve a day off!!

    • Bakvrad

      As long I can get my cheese toast 😉
      But yes, a sourcebook for the world that was would be awesome ^^

      • Matthew Pomeroy

        Nope, Spaghetti and meatballs!!!

    • ZeeLobby

      Don’t tease! Now you set back the bring back the Old World clock!!!

      • dave long island

        LOL 🙂

      • euansmith

        You know none of these clocks actual exist, and that, every time you mention them, GW resets the Clock Clock.

        • ZeeLobby

          I actually think they do have specific clocks, .but instead of resetting the one mentioned, they move forward the Primaris, now Primaris mk2, clocks instead. You know, stuff we didn’t really ask for XD.

          • NNextremNN

            Yeah Primaris Bikes and terminators :O

            … I would actually like those coming.

          • ZeeLobby

            Haha. Don’t worry. They will. The slow replacement of mini Marines is underway. I honestly don’t have an issue with the model line, but the fluff behind them is just silly. Would have rather just had GW say, these are the new marine models.

          • NNextremNN

            Yeah the models are great the fluff is meh. I don’t understood why GW didn’t simply said we made new awesome minis but you can still use the old. Except for a greed for money which also explains why they can’t enter each other transports and have different weapon options.

  • DoctorBored

    At least they’re acknowledging what the community has been asking for for a long time. Necromunda’s an easy way to say ‘See, we haven’t forgotten about Squats!’ by releasing a single model.

    Now we sit on our thumbs for plastic sisters of battle, whenever that clock breaks.

  • WhenDidVicesBecomeVirtues

    Am I the only one who was nervous it was gonna be a demiurg unit?

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      A heavy infantry unit for Tau would be cool.

  • Ryan Miller

    Now we need them in 40k! I will gladly also like space rats soon as well as a plastek thunder hawk within 4 years…

  • Drew

    There are no words for how much I adore all things Necromunda. =)

    Also, if Squats ever were to come back as an army, I’d no doubt throw an unreasonable amount of cash at GW…plastic Sisters and Thunderhawks do nothing for me, but bring back my Space Dwarves and we’re cooking with gas!

  • James Pridgen

    We have a 40k beastman army its called Thousand Sons.

  • piglette

    Literally squats before Sisters.

    • Munn

      Eh…technically Celestine came out first so…wooo.

  • pokemastercube .

    its like they know what we demand

    but where is the clock for give FW plastic machines 😛

    • Brian Griffith

      They threw it out after we started getting multiple box sets of plastic Horus Heresy.

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        Plastic Deimos please. ..

  • TenDM

    Plastic Sisters of Battle has almost reached midnight on a plastic clock. December 11th 2018 confirmed.

    • Jasko

      Yeah I don’t think the “almost 12” on that is a coincidence either…

  • MechBattler

    Well, they gave us one mini, just like Celestine. It’s time to…

  • Tox

    😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 I’m just so happy….

  • Andy Wise

    I was going to write that forum was about to lose its mind (in a good way) then I saw that it’s been doing so for 13 hours.

    Loving all this.

  • Stefan Pietraszak

    The Squats have been back for quite some time now. They’ve been mentioned in the core books of 6th and 7th edition. Just like Beastmen, which aren’t really a thing in 40K today, but there’s one bounty hunter for Necromunda ….

    Superstitious folks might see a pattern here.

    • NNextremNN

      Tzaangors are Beastmen too and they were even expanded in the new Thousand Sons Codex … even with just their AoS models.

  • Korvalus

    I thjink that you have something wrong about the clocks. They are not indicators about releases. They’re indicators about SOMEONE asking about them. When someone ask, they reset it’s clock and start over.

    BUUUT, the “squats” clock broke, so they have to release something about them: the bounty hunter. Y guess that’s why the sisters of battle looks newer, it broke about a year ago or so, cue Celestine.

  • Mike X (Official)

    First, power-armored Space Marines in even bigger power armor.

    Then, supersized Space Marines.

    Now, supershrunk Space Marines.

    Whoever approves GW projects needs firing.

    • thereturnofsuppuppers

      I can’t wait for superwide Space Marines.

  • Me

    I really hope that they are NOT Imperial/Chaos (assuming that they do actually release them).

    • euansmith

      Fluffwise, they should Hate the Imperium for letting them get eaten.

  • Erich Schoenholtz

    Awesome.

  • frankelee

    What’s also funny is: Why don’t they do things customers want?

  • Dan

    I was really looking forward to that going differently.

    I was hoping the setup would be the same, but while they were busy resetting the clock another staff member would barge in screaming about the new Squat model, awkwardly long pause for comedic effect, then they’d inexplicably get a hammer and melodramatically wreck the clock, possibly as a montage full of smash cuts to their model/artwork/necromunda logo stuff

  • memitchell

    The clocks record the time from the last mention/complaint/demand/beseech about the relevant models. The Squat clock breaks because it appears GW will release its first Squat model in 20+ years. Our heroes are surprised and bemused because the NEW Squat model comes from the most unlikely source: New Necromunda. Which had its own Big Ben sized clock ticking away for 20+ years.

    This isn’t meant to torture or mock folks who desperately want plastic SoB’s, etc. It’s to acknowledge the community’s over-the-top obsession with them. You can say a lot about GW, but you can’t say they don’t give customers a huge variety of models and armies. An obsession with one figure line is kinda funny. And, I know, I bleed Genestealer Cult Purple and Blue.

  • Rafał Pytlak

    Call the Tyranids. There f$#@€d after what they did to the Squat homeworld. The will be retribution akin that of Prospero!

  • Fraser1191

    Well things that people aren’t seeing with this.
    A: once squared you now just come back decades later
    B. Another imperium faction

    I also don’t get the hype for these guys

    • dante13

      You have to like Dwarves to understand Squat love… Take that anyway you’d like lol

  • dante13

    Gotta say these videos are bad but this one made me laugh, i did notice there was no Slaanesh Clock so i have hope…

    Looking forward to a Squats Necromunda Gang (please add some female Squats to the Game for full on Salt from the Fanbois and fun times)

    But really add a squat gang i’ll buy it.

  • helter266

    “SQUATS ARE BACK BAYBEE. We expect they’ll be getting a full codex and release of miniatures in September.” Pretty far-fetched. It’s only one mini for necromunda.
