Last year sadly one of my favourite Hobby Shops, Ian Allen in Birmingham closed down. I was gutted that it went, but did pick up a few bargains in the shut down sale, one of them was a Kharadon Overlords start collecting set. I could have built this ‘out of the box’ and added it to my small Kharadron overlord army, but no. I had other plans for it.
I have always loved the idea of Squats… space dwarves! Dwarves are my favorite fantasy army, so what’s not to love about the ideo of a space version. Okay, Games Workshop don’t agree, they shelved this army years ago and wrote them out of the fluff… but so what! I’ve never been a salve to ‘cannon’ or ‘lore’. I make up my own.. The WH40k universe is so vast, uncharted and has such a long timeline it is a great sand box to play in and make your own stuff up.
I decided to make this box into my version of a start collecting squats. These are all heavy weapons teams, with a small land speeder and a servo bot. I have already made a few Squats before so adding these heavy weapons and support is the basis of a good army.
