Always missed titans in the squat army when I played it decades ago.

So I am curious, what would your ideas for rules/lore/what-ever be for gargantuan squat walker warmachines, if you were to design them?

Not trying impose non-lore units, just curious, and think they could look cool.

Hey, I am sick and bored and this looks like fun!

I will roll with the assumption that squats and Demiurg's from BFG are the same race. So in BFG the Squat/Demiurg seem to not have a homeplanet/system but rather roam around space trading and mining. When a Squat brotherhood needs to be sent down to a planet for operations they will sometimes be accompanied by a "homestead" of suitable size. A moveable base of operations. Really big operations will be accompanied by gigantic structures housing huge amount of personnel and equipment usable for mining, trading or warfare. -> Squat titans!

So - I am thinking something big, bulky and space-effective. Gigantic tracks for movement. Integrated weaponry. Not much in ways of limbs or such. More cube-ish tank than humanoid walker. Might be a challenge getting that to look cool so not sure but it feels right...

no clue about rules.

The Warpath: Forge Father Doomstorm Pattern Iron Ancestor is a good option -

I do agree that if you were to shoehorn them in, the warpath items would be a good starting point. I personally liked the colossal war machines as they were distinctive even if the actual models were lackluster (come on Gregster's Lab hurry up and make a not sucky colossus and leviathan so i can start a new army!)

Call me crazy ... but I think MicroWorld has a good one already ... But might not be really tall enough for a "Titan" per se ... But Squats are shorter than Humans and most alien or abhumans. Save for Ratlings ... And even though the hands have no ranged weapons. Those should be easy enough to find & mount ...

Dwarf Fortress Golems
Pack Contains:
Enough parts to make 2 Fortress Golems (axe armed, hammer armed):
2 x Golem legs
1 x Hammer arm
1 x axe arm
2 x empty hand arms
4 x cannon turrets
2 x Golem Torsos

H: 28mm

I envision a multi-legged structure like a cross between a deep sea oil rig and a pre-dreadnought battleship.
