Squat Berzerker

Two Berzerker formations – one per Brotherhood (red and yellow).

Squat Brotherhood

The second Warrior formation. One Brotherhood has red “buttons”, the other yellow. The Lord is standing on a shield carried by two warriors.

Squat Infantry – Finally some progress!

I hate Squats… I really do. In my darkest moments I wish that they would all be devoured by Tyranids… oh, wait…

After the (near) completion of the Lost and the Damned Chaos army for the TacComs Tale of Epic Gamers, I foolishly decided to continue painting 6mm EPIC models. By popular vote I was encouraged to select the Squats as my next project. Squats are painful to paint (well). While there is a lot less infantry than in the Chaos force, they ALL look the same. No problem, I thought, I painted Space Marines and other such uniform armies before. How bad can it be? Well, each Squat has boots, trousers, vests, shirtsleeves, face, beard, gloves, gun and cap. That means painting 800 boots, 400 trousers, etc. Worst of all was the mistake to paint everything in one assembly line to “stay consistent”. Motivation killer…

Anyhow, after a 30 days absence from the blog, I finally have some progress to declare. The Squat infantry and light artillery is done! To keep my sanity and make you suffer a bit like I suffered, I shall post individual units every days or so. For starters, below is the first Warrior Brotherhood with Lord and Living Ancestor.

EPIC Squats marching to war

Well, at least marching onto the painting table (at the end of a long line). Basing, stripping and green stuff work completed for the Squats. Now there is just that minor detail of painting them.

Top row from left: The heavy war engines (Cyclops, Colossus, Leviathan, 2 Land Trains with carts) and a Brotherhood with Termite Tunnelers

Middle row from left: Berzerker with two Mole tunellers, a squadron of Robots and a Brotherhood with Spartan Rhinos.

Bottom row from left: Twelve Thunderers and the Living Ancestor.

Top row from left: 18 Mole Mortars, 3 Goliath (1 inbound from Ebay) and 2 Thunderfire AA guns (4 more inbound from Ebay).

Middle row from left: 18 Thudd Guns, 6 Rapiers, three squadrons of 6 Bikers and 6 Exo Armour Bikers.

Bottom row from left: 6 Iron Eagle flyers, 2 Overlord Airships, 12 Trikes, and the “bike masters” (2 with masters on bikes, 1 on trike).

This is pretty much everything available in the various Squat lists and comes to a grand total around 10,000 points. I just received the remaining parts for 6 Hearthguard bases and 6 Exo-Armour bases. Those will join the ranks shortly.
