I might have to steal the design for those scorprions . . .

And the Warrior is :666: . I wanna see it eat some people! :twisted:

Actually, the U-clips are way cooler than words can describe, and they're only a quarter each. Definitely worth the buy.

Meanwhile, this stuff is totally awesome! who cares if the torsos look a little funny, those workers are STILL the shit!

Yeah, I really love the way they turned out.

But I don't know if the Warrior will wasted her attack using her jaws on a single minifig when she can blast the whole lot of them with her machine-guns.
(Speaking of, how would I stat the Warrior and her weapons? Do her jaws count as two melee weapons or just one?)

Jeez, a quarter a pop?
That's a bit rich for my blood.

And I can't believe people like the Worker so much, hasn't anyone made a Dridder before?

Just one big one. When the warrior bites down on something, you don't want to make separate attack rolls for each half of the jaw, right?

Went and tried to refine the Worker's model, mostly to experiment with the waist but I ended up swiching out the plates hanging down from the top piece for some fenders.

Image
The waist experiment in question.
I was trying to see if those studs with holes would work...
They do, but said studs only come in white.

So do these changes work better, or should I be glad I never saved this model?

A new potential Bug unit has arrived:

I realised it's a bit odd the Arachnid Empire didn't have any airborne creatures, so tried to build something with wings and scimitar mandibles.
I'm thinking of calling it the Hunter.

Ok, now I feel the need to make an airborne creature for the Ilun Taldea to compete. Nice work!

Yeah, I'm kind of regreting building it now...

...Those black wings are currently going for $10 US EACH on Bricklink.

That is directed to both the creation and the price of the wings.

Since Buckbeak's wings aren't a viable option for the Hunter, I decided to try some brick built ones instead.

I added an extra set to try for a Dragonfly look, but I'm not attached to them.
Let me know what works and what doesn't.
