Default Squats

Do you think that Squats will ever come back?

I really want to make a Squat army, but it would be hard with them not being part of 40k anymore.

So, what are your thoughts on this?

It is a guarantee that as a unique army Squats will never be back. GW has plainly stated this. Apparently whoever developed the Squats retained the rights to them and left GW under less-than-friendly circumstances. This is what I read, anyway...I'll look for a link.

Jervis said somewhere that GW just couldn't find a way to make squats fit into 40k right. I tend to agree as the old squats were very ridiculously goofy, and the fact they aren't even a unique race ruins them even more for me. They may be returning as the Demiurg, however. Keep watching the stars for news of their rebirth.

For now I recommend just counting them as guard as using doctrines to fluffify (patent pending ;D ) them

For infantry that works fine, but one of the coolest units they had was the trikes. Not to mention Living Ancestors, Exo-Armor, etc, etc. They were pretty cool, they honestly were.

And if none of you guys have seen the plastic "Space Dwarfs" boxed set....wow. An absolute masterpiece considering they were produced in the late-80s. They had some really good models despite the fact that everyone bemoans the "crappy" metal ones - they really did.

I managed to get ahold of a plastic box, unopened, in the late-90s before selling it on to a fellow in Australia who was a much better painter than I. I wish I could find his contact info again, as we were probably the only two (there might have been three or four) people painting our Marines as members of the Scythes of the Emperor (yellow and black, my all-time favorite color scheme).

Man alive, I miss the 90s...not to mention having a decent job, living at home, etc, etc.
