Each and every Squad has its own Vox Caster as well as a Special Weapon trooper carrying a Plasma gun. My reasoning behind having a Vox Caster is that I might not need them but if I do there is no need to scrounge for bits when that time arrives, the Plasma gun is based around the Squats being generally more technologically advanced than their human counterparts (with my luck this means my Squats melt a lot!).
|Platoon Command Squad; two Plasma Guns, Vox and a Banner.|
|Infantry Squad 1; Heavy Weapon Team, Vox, Plasma Gun|
|Infantry Squad 2; Heavy Weapon Team, Vox, Plasma Gun|
|Infantry Squad 3; Heavy Weapon Team, Vox, Plasma Gun|
|Heavy Weapon Squad; Mortar Teams|
|Veteran Squad; Vox, three Plasma guns|
|Hammerfall High Shield Gun Corpse with a regular Squat for size Reference|
|Iron Hand Straken, and two spare Plasma Gunners|
|Possible Ogryns, with an actual Ogryn for scale|
In my eyes both are viable options, so if anyone out there has an opinion feel free to share and enlighten me.
I did paint up my first Squat model as a test to see if my color scheme works alright as well as to test some of the Army Painter stuff I got in. I went with a brown and gray color scheme, I figured Earth and Rock tones would work for them, I did the metals in Dwarf Bronze as opposed to the usual Boltgun Metal. At the time of writing the model is still drying from paint and me 'splashing on' the Quick Shade - Dark Tone, so once it has dried properly I'll dose it with anti gloss and take a picture.
So far so good.
