Warhammer 40k Squat + Gimli the Dwarf

40k Squat with Lazer gun.
It's the end of another week and time for Painting Table Saturday. I finished a couple of old miniatures, both from the 1980's. The Squat is from Citadel Miniatures and was a gift from my friend Lewis Morgan. Unfortunately it came without a backpack.

Hen's Tooth.
These are rare as hens teeth, so I improvised with an ammunition trolley from a Warhammer Fantasy Battle sprue (Battle For Skull Pass). It looked somewhat like a rocketpack which made the conversion easy. It's bigger but looks awesome and captures that Rogue Trader feel. You might also notice a Star Wars theme going on!?

The other miniature is a gift from Mark Vuletich, a friend and fellow gamer that often finds treasures like this one hidden at garage sales and antique fairs. I have no idea of the manufacturer but it's definitely a classic figure, obviously a dwarf and probably Gimli. Any help identifying the manufacturer would be appreciated. He certainly has plenty of character.


God bless and enjoy your week!
