Was there ever a real tiny army for them? Like the Tau have kroot? I know there were ratling snipers in the IG army but.. yeah... I'd love to do a small army of ratlings

theirs jsut not enough options for them. ratlings are useless at anything but sniping, making a whole army useless. cool, but useless.

Back in Rogue Trader you could indeed have a Ratling (or "Halfling") army.

Me and a few of the lads from EO made the Ratling Codex as a sort of tribute to the golden age of furry-footed burrowing midgets. Rock on, you thieving bastards, rock on. :rockon:

That would look cool an army of pint sized soldiers (why can i easily imagine myself in there) I don't see why GW dont try bringing squats or halflings back, they would be eaiser to make needing less materials

Ogryns im are sub-humans, think catachans on even more steroids, with big guns and scary stats, not sure if they have a list though,

I still remember reading the 1st Ed. Ogryn were from "harsh" worlds, mutated and evolved dumber but stronger, and Squats were humans living on high gravity planets. Don't remember the silly explanation for Space halflings, but surprised they did away with all that considering they finally gave in and made Space Dark Elves and Space Undead (Necron.)
