They are dead....the squats are already dead. In fluff, they are eaten by the tyranids. In real-life, GW cancelled the squat line.

HALT you are in violation of inquisitorial directorate num: 42851A8, you will be taken into custody and interogated.

GW decided to kill off squats without giving them an ounce of deceny. they've turned them into nothing more than a footnote in 40K fluff. they're demice was something along the lines of:

generic marine super hero1:blah blah blah
generic marine super hero2: blah blah blah
chaos marine:blah blah blah

P.S. squats were eaten by nids.

GW had actually had plans to make a squat codex(says so in the 2nd edition guard codex) but then they killed them off. not quite sure why though.

i refuse to accept demiurg as a substitute for squats. squats were tough resilient imperial guardsmen with a love for terminator armour and heavy bolters. demiurg are crappy traders who lend their stupid little psykick powers to the blueis.

You're confused here...

Demiurg are brilliant traders (like Squats were), who are more advanced than the Tau (Squats were more advanced than Imperials), serve as Mercenaries (like Squats), do a lot of mining (like Squats), hate Orks (like Squats) and are allies of the Eldar (like Squats).

You seem to have gotten them mixed up with Nicassar...

I cant really agree that Squats where more advanced then the Imperials.. They worshipped machine-spirits in the same way as Adeptus Mechanicus and there was a lot of praying and stuff to get something to work.. Mostly they used about the same stuff as imperial troops ie lasguns, bolter weapons.. and the big armour they had for the Hearthguard lokked more crude then terminator armour and was also old and handed down for generations..
