This section is devoted to the vehicles and titans produced in resin before the GW Forgeworld Division was started. Nick Tompkins of Epicast was very helpful in providing information. The history of resin casts for Warhammer was shown on the Epicast site and Epicast are thanked for permission to reproduce an abridged version of their article here. Armorcast are still in business, although not producing items under license from Games Workshop anymore.

Beards for the Beard God! Just for the record there was no "overlapping ownership" between Epicast and Inquisitor. Epicast was owned and run by my friend Nick Tompkins. Inquisitor was owned and run by myself. Armorcast was owned and run by myself and David Garton. Yours, Tim DuPertuis. This was a French language magazine published by Agmat maker of the Agmat Thudd Gun on an irregular schedule in the mid- to late s.
I have only issue 5, dated June I am not sure how many issues were published; issue 5 is the only one I have. This issue magazine was published at an erratic schedule by Tim Dupertuis. Tim was the man behind Epicast and then with Armorcast, so it is understandable that there would be some trade-offs between publishing issues and production of models.
The dates on the covers of the issues do not necessarily correspond to the actual time of publication, but may reflect the intended date rather than the actual date as was common for small publications of this time. Number 1 June : No Squats. Number 2 September : Squats-free. Number 3 January : Disturbing absence of Squats. Number 4 April : Advertisement for Epicast U. Termite and Falcon, page Given the overlapping ownership between Inquisitor and Epicast, all future issues feature an ad for the Termite somewhere in them and will not be included here.
Page points values for various Squats-associated weaponry included in a Space Marine Army record sheet, including the Mole Mortar, Thudd Gun, Rapier, all Tarantula variations, and the Leviathan for those ambitious enough to construct such a monster pts.
Note that we are dealing with the Rogue Trader rules at this time. Number 6 September : Page 4 notes the sad absence of Squat Champion units. Page 14 index of White Dwarf articles from issue reveals the conspicuous absence of Squats articles, limited to the Army List in and the Land Train rules in But it also foolishly includes the Mole Mortar in the Imperial section, along with generally shared systems Rapier and Tarantula, and bikes of all sorts.
Good luck sirs, Inquisitor's publication numbers were measured in the low 's. We had trouble in NYC getting minis in the s and early s, Alaskans and Hawaiians must be truly in dire circumstances. Number 7 February : Article on pages on Scout and Recon units. Reports that Squats do not distinguish between Scouts and Recon types, related to their heavy-handed approach to gathering information. Rules and Stats for a Jeep type recon vehicle in use by the Imperials and Squats basically, touch it and it explodes.
Page 17 Want Ads. Our friends in Alaska and Hawaii continue their searches. Their pleas will continue, but will no longer be reported here. Number 8 Spring : Squat Engineers on Bikes appear on the cover. Squats also have access to specialized Rhinos with engineering modifications bridge-laying, mine-sweeping , as well as Termite, Mole, and Hellbore tunnelers and the Gorgon rules for which were promised in issue 9 but never appeared, except for Gorgon.
Page Updated points values and equipment lists for Squats armies. Number 9 Summer : Pas des Nains d'espace. Number 10 Fall : Warhammer 40K 2 nd Edition appears with minimal army lists. Page 5 notes that it is likely that a full Squats army list will not be seen soon Obstacles and Line of Sight rules on pages discuss the advantages and disadvantages of being shorter than Humans, Orks, and Keeblars. Features illustrative photographs including Squats.
Number 12 Spring : No Squats. Number 13 February : Vehicle System Update pages provides generalized rules for military vehicle classes and attempts to rein in the literal overkill allowed to Imperial Land Raiders and Dreadnoughts. Vehicle weapon points are adjusted for BS of crew, including Squats. Exo Armor Chaos Squats appear prominently in the army photo on p.
Hungry Ghosts says, yes, but needs more skulls and tentacles. More importantly, this issue is devoted to remedying the missing Squats Codex for 40K 2 nd Edition pp. The Squats Army List starts on p. It is broken up into a Brotherhood Army List pp.
The photographs included reinforce the belief that only a few Iron Claw Squats appeared in North America Numbers 1, 5, 10, The illustrations by Joel Phillips seem to indicate that pictures or copies of the unreleased 2 nd Edition Squats had been seen, or at least the Champions and Trooper. Number 16 November : No Squats.
Squats Army List errata on p. Page 12 gives a system for determining points costs of troops based on a average human model with additions for improvements. This system was used in assigning points costs in the Squats army lists that appeared in Number Australian Realms. No Squats here. The Dark Library: A magazine for the Warhammer 40, gamer. But they do have much experience with beer, and have specialist Grogbrothers, who maintain the integrity of the vast beer production facilities found on every Squats Homeworld, expeditionary base, and spacecraft.
Open solicitation for material for the next issue is never a good sign in terms of maintaining a regular publication schedule. Issue 3 from Spring is a much improved publication in terms of quality of content and format. On the other hand, it states that flashlights are useless to Squats. This is simply not true for a race as ingenious as the Squats. Amongst other functions, they can be sold or traded, used to make the ignorant think that Squats do not have Infravision, used to temporarily blind others by shining the lights in the eyes, or as a general whacking stick pp.
Page 26 features an ad for Nick Tompkins's Epicast U. Page 7: another ad from Epicast offering the Termite. Page a little complaint about the allies system for 40K 2 nd Ed, noting that former enemies Squats and Eldar can now cooperate, and that Squats will condescend to ally with Space Marines.
Pages Space Slann are back! On pp. Saul is believed to have been a Slann. Or maybe a Dragon. Imperial Dispatches: A Warhammer 40, Fanzine. Broadcast from Alameda California, said to be quarterly. I have only Volume 2 issue 1, dated February Features a less-than-flattering illustration of the Emperor of Mankind on the cover.
Louis Porter's Fallout. Page 12, article on efficient Space Marines point spending advises use of the Thudd Gun. Issue 4 May : Page 8, quiz offering fabulous prizes for answering questions about Mole Mortars and less important things. Also discussion about people wanting GW to make some vehicles for armies besides the Smurfs and Imperial Grots, including Squats.
Notes that Epicast offers such things, including the Termite, with ad for Epicast with Termite on page Issue 5 July : 40K scenario, Mission Delta: Assimilation, features Squats battling Tyranids for possession of a Squat Homeworld alternatively referred to as Drun Kale or Darmer, said to be closest to the Tyranid infested part of the galaxy pp.
Epicast ad for Termite etc p. Issue 6 September : Rules for Termite on pages and Mars: Adventures in Miniature. A quarterly magazine focusing on miniatures-based games from all companies, published in Vancouver Canada.
I have only issues 3 and 4, from Summer and Fall Noting that the Battletech mecha are of similar size to a Space Marine, our reader created a new race of tiny Gnomes. Our Gnomes pilot the mecha against 40K opponents who will tolerate such nonsense. The same reader reports that he is busily working on a Squat Codex, which would be of dubious quality from someone who would play silly Gnomes instead of just using the Battletech mecha as Epic 40K Squats Knight Titans, as any sensible person would do p.

Resin Vehicles & Titans
The days where Warhammer 40, began its rise to the top of the minis wargaming pile in spite of being designed without any real regard to balance or tournament play. Before the Internet became king magazines were how you got your gaming news and rules changes or additions, usually months if not years before the same rules would be compiled into a book format or something. But as is GW's wont, the longer they were around, the greedier and more idiotic they got as all companies traded on the Stock Markets of the world are , and all these rules became less and less common in White Dwarf to the hilariously near nonexistent amount the now TWO magazines are. In general modern White Dwarf is merely really lovely pictures of GW minis painted beyond most people's abilities.
