Thank you and symphonicpoet for your comments.

Agreed - I think the golds were the most successful part of the paint job.

Cyberslayer - as "proof of concept" I like what it suggests about the proposed style for second ed squat models. But the model itself is exceedingly undetailed. A bunch of blank flat surfaces. I do quite like the face though.

Soon!

And here's the cyberslayer:

There's an unfinished quality of this sculpt. The face is fairly detailed (I love the face). But there are too many smooth blank spaces on the model in my view. And best not look to closely at the club-like hand gripping the bolted.

Despite the flaws, I very much enjoyed painting this one. Makes me wish - even more - that squats had been meaningfully included in second edition.

This model will see action on the table under the squat army list in Inquisitor #15. The issue has rules for slayers/berserkers, though I'm more likely to use the model as part of a regular squad tooled up for close combat.

Thanks.

Here's the latest - looks like a Blood Bowl mini (I confess I'm not too familiar with those ranges).

But you can never have too many heavy weapon squats!

Indeed it is a Blood Bowl dwarf :)

Mr Barik Farblast apparently, bottom left here. I suspected someone had been getting creative with a thrower conversion or something but no, he looks unmodified to me. Must be one of those banned weapon guys, a bloody rocket launcher :D

Thanks for the reference, Gallivantes.

A modest update. Haven't had much time recently to paint.

That cyber slayer looks like he could've steppedout of an 80s-90s action movie, if they had filmed Squats back then. Which they apparently should have! Gotta like that cool over-the-top streak. Great stuff and good paintjobs!
