@roibr actually they are called Exo Armour. Based on Terminator/Power Armour. The Squats were awesome, heavy weapon squads with ten Heavy Bolters! And one of the only races able to wield Bolters as standard weapons. Their lore touts them as being descended from the original human exploration before the Age of Darkness and they were living primarily on high gravity mining planets and thus slowly evolved to be diminutive but powerful and extremely tough. I had about 6 armies either being amassed or currently played when they were still lore approved and would have loved to keep using and modernising them like the other races, but they were expunged almost overnight without a word of why from absolutely anyone! Rumours flew but in the end they weren’t coming back. I actually updated their old army listing to work with 4th Edition and used them a handful of times with a bunch of mates.
@roibr ok I found a small box that had unfinished, new acquisitions, rescue projects and assorted models to be added but it gives a wide assortment of the models that were available.!! ![0_1536556637400_46DA7C70-799D-4B57-A837-993EE1DA8EBD.jpeg](/assets/uploads /files/1536556642610-46da7c70-799d-4b57-a837-993ee1da8ebd-resized.jpeg)
@roibr interesting! You are correct about the “newer” additions of older historical lore in that they like to omit certain things and add others that contradicts. It’s happened since 2nd edition and the total expunging of Squats and anything even mentioning them. (And I had just amassed quite a formidable army of them too)
Heavily contradicts the lore given in multiple sources of the history of Tactical Dreadnought Armour variants and STC patterns. Although having a custom chainfist wouldn’t be unrealistic though. Just requires a voluntary hazy patch be inserted in ones memory. Is what it is though I guess.
@grey-seer Deathwatch less emo than the Dark Angels!! That’s pretty debatable with Blackshields and the like skulking around. Why not just return to the original chapter of SH history, and what a colourful and character loaded chapter we are too. Baal knows how to rock a location with flair! And besides, everyone knows Sanguinius was the Emperors chosen
@mr-b to be specific though, they both target different audiences, and the hype train that was the time before release of NMS was a hugely different beast to SHDW. Statistics can only be used if there is a relative situation for both test cases. It’s too easy to rattle off numbers and have the general semi-blissful ignorant gamer eat ‘em up which doesn’t help either outcome. In the end it is what it is and there’s no going back to change these outcomes.
