Squats, if you will.
I think we all know what the "Imperium" did to these guys so I won't really go into it, but alongside the change in aesthetics for Space Orks their removal from the official setting of Warhammer 40,000 was a major "it's not the same anymore" factor for me.
I should point out I only had a hand me down incomplete heavy weapon trike when all this went down but I did have pipe dreams of collecting an army of them.
Fast forward a decade and pipe dreams were emerging as pipe realities, as due to that notorious online auction site I had embarked on a great Squat collecting crusade.
A big thank you to Cheetor for supplying me with the Synth wielding dude!
The Iron Claw "Gol Orta" or Captain leads the Brotherhood.
I'm not all that keen on the Exo minis so he's more just for show really.
My army is composed using the alternate list for Squats published in the Inquisitor Magazine for use in 2nd edition 40K, which as you may know is basically a slightly tweaked version of how they appeared in Rogue Trader.
These guys are an infiltrating Recon squad in game, hence the different uniforms.
Sly use of the Blood Bowl ref here :)
