A few years back I created some updated Squat concepts as I always liked them in Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 game. I hadn’t put all of my ideas online so here’s my Squat Warlord in Power armour, partly inspired by Paul Bonner’s illustration of a last stand of the Squats against the Eldar. There’s also a Squat Power Boarder as a homage to Pete Knifton’s illustration in the original Rogue Trader rulebook.
Here’s the inked (on paper) and coloured (digitally) version. I created the runic language from looking at Tolkien’s Angerthas (Dwarvish) runes and making them look a bit more technical.
I’ve some more ideas for these and some other human variants; I just felt that this page needed some colour.
This is still fan-art and not meant to infringe on GW’s copyright.
I always liked the Squats (Space Dwarfs) in WH40K and felt they’ve been unjustly maligned over the years so here are some of my ideas for them. First are a couple of heads and a hero with bionic hand and power-hammer, also some ideas for their runic language (so not to be too Nordic but also retain the geometric nature). Then there is a tunnel fighting armoured warrior with an axe-boltgun and combat shield (that expands from his armour) and a ‘Living Ancestor’ psychic.
More on this soon! (Hopefully).
