Exo-Armour Hearthguard and the Storm Giants

There are several must-haves in a Squat army – and Exo-Armoured Hearthguard are several of them.  Like Space Wolves and their Wolfguard, these heavily-armoured characters can be sprinkled around the army to bolster the ranks, or formed up into squads for real hitting power.

This model may’ve been influenced by the famous Sutton Hoo helmet. It’s as though the Perry that sculpted these models saw it and thought “Hey! That would look great as a robot – all it needs are hands and feet.”

Eagle-eyed amongst you would’ve noticed that there’s a discarded RTB01 helmet on the base. This is to commemorate the Squats’ victory against Mark’s Storm Giants in our ongoing army challenge. So great was the massacre of these green Marines that Mark has switched to collecting Ultramarines.

    They are great looking models indeed – I’m a big fan of both the metal and plastic Squats from the late 80’s / early 90’s period. I’m just finishing off a counts – as IG ‘Squat Guard’ army at the moment. In fact, it’ll get it’s first run-out at the Blog Wars tournament at Mansfield on Saturday.

    What codex are you using for your Squat army?
