What are Squiggly Beasts?

Squiggly Beasts, also known as "Squigs," are creatures from the Warhammer 40,000 universe, specifically associated with the Orks, a warlike alien race. They come in various forms and serve different functions within Ork society. They are typically found in Ork settlements, known as "Drops," where they grow and breed in cesspits, subsisting on Ork refuse.

There are many types, each with its own unique characteristics and uses. Some are bred for consumption as food, while others have specialized roles such as musical Squigs, hair Squigs, or parasite-hunting Squigs. They also have medicinal uses, with some varieties specifically bred for their properties useful to Painboys, and Ork medical practitioners.

Gretchin and Snotlings, other subspecies within Ork society, are often tasked with tending to Squigs, under the supervision of Runtherds, who oversees the management of Ork livestock. These animals are a vital part of Ork life, serving as a source of food, materials, and even inspiration for Orkish inventions and practices.

Can you use Squig Herds from Gloomspite Gitz in Warhammer 40k?

Yes, they can be used perfectly in the futuristic world of Warhammer 40k.

While Warhammer 40,000 and Age of Sigmar (the setting for Gloomspite Gitz) share some similarities in terms of lore and themes, they are distinct universes with their own rulesets and factions. In this case, there is no problem since they are the same type and scale of miniatures, and for this reason, they can be used as an accompaniment or decoration for other units, if bombs are included they can be an attack unit and of course as a mount for various special characters and swift units.
