Squat – Collectors Guide

80% of this document is from http://www.collecting-citadel-miniatures.com/wiki/index.php/Squat_-_Collectors_Guide with additions of additional images and sources and comments where i felt they were needed as well as missing modern miniatures . and this is still very much a work in progress, but if i have missed anything please sing out

First Release

A space dwarf was included in the first 40K releases, as shown in the May 1987 flyer. The figure then appeared in the Rogue Trader Part One Flyer as part of the Mercenaries range and in the 1988 Cataogue (still as a mercenary).

Rogue Trader RT301 Space Dwarfs

This range first appeared in the Thank You Mr President Flyer in September 1987 and then shortly thereafter in the Book of the Astronomican, White Dwarf 94 and the Rogue Trader Part One Flyer. Although the full range still appeared in the 1989 Catalogue, by the time the 1991 Blue Catalogue was issued, only 8 remained.

It should be noted that Roth Bergmann, Owen Garand and Gatt Gunslinger were originally issued with separate back packs. By 1991, Owen Garand and Gatt Gunslinger had been redesigned to have backpacks integral to the figure

Nambu Arisaka was named Nambu Kalashnikov initially but the name changed by the time the next listing appeared.

These were first shown in the Winter 1987 Flyer and also appeared in the Rogue Trader Part One Flyer and White Dwarf 97. Surprisingly, none were shown in the 1988 or 1989 Catalogues but all figures did appear in the 1991 Blue catalogue. , The three original heavy weapons had been replaced by four new designs in the 1991 Blue catalogue.

Command

The command figures first appeared in the Rogue Trader Part One Flyer and then in the January 1988 Flyer and White Dwarf 97. All these figures continued through to the 1989 Catalogue and then to the 1991 Blus Catalogue.

By the time the 1991 Blue Catalogue was issued, there had been some changes in designation. The original officers had become champions and vice versa although the tabs still indicated the original designation.

Thudd Gun

The Squat Thudd Gun was released as part of the Imperial Army range in the Rogue Trader Part Three Flyer. It then appeared in White Dwarf 101. It was omitted from the 1988 and 1989 catalogues but appeared in the 1991 Blue Catalogue.

The alternative version of the Thudd Gun, often known as the Agmat version, does not seem to have been supplied with the Squat gunner but rather with a crew of IG troopers only. For that reason it is not included here.

Examples have also been sighted with the metal backpack.
