Yes, they were always more fleshed out in that game, but again the problem was that they mostly duplicated the IG list. The IG already had mammoth, enormously destructive war machines, so what did the squats bring to the table that was any different?

GW could have tried to use them like Sisters of Battle or Adeptus Arbites - specialist troops with limited options for a particular task, but they just dropped them instead.

Looking at the scope of the game, I can't argue with that decision.
