Fleas the Size of Rats Sucked on Rats the Size of Cats: Citadel Scale-Creep

Hungry Ghosts just got a few of the latest edition of Imperial Guard Ratlings, and they are quite robust fellows. We'll let the pictures do most of the talking...

 And ten thousand peoploids split into small tribes...
Squat Adeptus Mechanicus flanked by Ratlings Mark 3 flanked by Ratlings Mark 1, and a wee little Marauder Miniatures Halfling stuffing his mouth at the left end.

Cute how they kept the traditional Ratling poses. Not so cute how the new Ratling looks like he could eat the old Ratling and still be scrounging through your fridge for leftovers. It's always Hunger City when you're a grotesquely large mutant Ratling.

Could strap that halfling onto the rifle instead of the scope. Scope's less greasy though. Less gassy as well. Doesn't want you to guess how many cheesy puffs he can fit into his mouth...whose idea was it to use the halfling instead of the scope?

Steel Legion Officer, Mighty Ratling, Drunk Dwarf Miner, Scrawny Space Dwarf, 
Embarrassingly Large Gotrek Gurnisson, 
Embarrassingly Small Space Marine Captain with Terminator Honors.

R.O.U.S.'s? Rodents of Unusual Size? I don't think they exist.

Power Fist, Dwarf Fist;
 A Steel Legionnaire becomes 
Delicate flower.

But I'm a Terminator! Chaos Terminator! Eye of Terror Terminator!

I'm a HORSE! Quit whining.

This is why the Iron Claw Squats Hover Car is also known as the Halfling Cloud Car.
This is why Squats and Scrunts don't mix.


  1. Great post!
    I have to admit, the size of Citadel's new miniatures embarrasses many of my beloved armies of yore... =(

    Keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks, Zartan!

      Unless you're somebody else disguised as Zartan...

      But if you were Zartan, you would probably think, if I go about dressed as myself other people would think "That's not Zartan. It must be someone else disguised as Zartan. Zartan wouldn't just go for a walk looking like himself."

      But Zartan might think I'd think that and so he wouldn't appear as himself. He'd probably be disguised as someone ordinary following behind the person dressed as Zartan. Or would he?

      My head hurts.
