Default Squat themed IG

Some of you may know I have three IG armies all of which are very different in theme, my Praetorians are a infantry heavy shooty force, my mechanized bulldogs are tank heavy and have few in number, my Catachans have closed range in mind. So now Im going through my old bits and I have discovered some old Squat models, and I'm thinking hey why not do a Squat themed army. Right now my local hobby store has battle for skull pass on sale for 30 bucks! Two box sets along with the old metal stuff I have I could have the makings ov a very unique army.

I plan to use the following doctrines;

Roughriders (bikes, I have to knock out yriel of Iyanden for these he got twelve but hey hes my bro hell understand...)
Tech Priests (Squat form of course...ive seen this model on ebay and can aquire him soon
carapace (most of the fantasy models have chainmail, I can either say its mesh or carapace)
cyber enhancements

What do you guys think???

Squats are too short to get on the horses. Anyway, I thought they like technology.

You could always mount them on super strong alien goats. Other than that, It would be nice to see more unique guard armies on the table, specially yours. Your doctrines seem fiting too.

He said bikes, didn't he?

Looks like it'll be a great army. I'll be expecting pictures.

Sounds fun. Doctrines look good. Are you going to go for a tank-heavy force? You could make some pretty unique looking armoured proxies, I reckon...

Good idea. I have made Squat Guardsmen myself! They wer just a small part of my army however. To do the whole army like that is sweet.

Yup I said bikes, back in the rogue Trader days they made Squat hariles...which my brother still has...so that part of the army will be first. I have to barter with him to get them though. Also this weekend im picking up two battle for skull pass box sets...so pics will be posted soon
