I’m selling some Epic Squats on eBay at the moment, and I thought hey . . . I have a wargaming blog. I can cross-promote.
The lot ends in a few days. I want to cut down on my old stuff to make room for better organization, so some more old GW stuff and some historical and Privateer Press things will be going under the virtual hammer soon too. I don’t feel good when I have too many objects around that I never use.
Hopefully these guys will go to a good home. Squats get a bad rap these days for being silly, and I sometimes wonder why I liked them at all when I was a boy. Sourcing this old Rogue Trader artwork has reminded me. The Squats had a hard-headed, no-nonsense soldier-of-fortune vibe that the psychotic, brainwashed Space Marines and sacrificial Imperial Guard couldn’t match.
And everything was silly back then – the Orks are just as dumb and childish an idea as the Squats thank you very much. Rogue Trader was a product of its time. The modern grimdark 40k universe that people applaud so much for its depth is going to look pretty silly itself in twenty years, I guarantee.
So yeah, check out my auction if you like. Unfortunately I used one of the exo-armoured guys as a banner-top for my Dwarfs in high school. He’s the only thing missing from the original box.
