Recently painted some oldhammer style squats to join in with my mining survey team (completed over a year ago when I was doing the Adventurers range).
A mix of Black Tree, Kromlech medic, GW, and a Satyr Arts powerboarder.



a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

They fit superbly together even though they're from different manufacturers, and the colours suit them to a t. Those checks on the chainsword are splendid.
Also - mole mortars!  :-*
Industrial yellow works well on them.

They are excellent.  :-*

I'd always glossed over the BTD squats because of the rubbish pictures on the website, but seeing them done properly makes me want some!
Did someone more reliable take them on when BTD binned all their sci-fi stuff?

They are, and they don't.... see my post above. They shed all the scifi lines a few years ago when they went international and I've no idea who, if anyone, picked them up.

Thanks all, this has been another fun little offshoot project.

I really don't know about that. I picked these up on eBay several years ago- I originally thought they were Heartbreaker or some other 3rd party group emulating the look.

 That is a great collection of Squats and wonderfully painted too.

 Also got to say the terrain looks amazing.

 The Blacktree Squats were only three packs as far as i know.I have two of them.The little sci-fi Halflings they did were cool too.

It's the paintjobs that make it work. Great to see them.

Fantastic little warband of Squats :) . It's a classic case of bringing a selection of different ranges together with a quality paint job. I love it :) .
