...Have you gone through and actually read this thread?
Eh, might as well do another Overwatch anyways:
The Pseudo-Arachnid Empire was one of the first interstellar civilizations the Tairin Federation made contacted with.
In the begining the Arachnids tried to establish friendly relations with the Federation, but negotiations broke down quickly when the Tairin ambassador began insulting the Empress herself, calling her things like "a disgusting fat-ass".
Enraged at this slight against their great queen's gloriously engorged thorax, the Bugs now wage ceaseless war against Federal feces and their "Bitchy" leaders.
Coupling the versatile adaptability of the upper humanoid torso with the rugged dependability of a more arthropodic frame, the intelligent Worker is well suited for a variety of task, including building and interacting with minifigs.
Unfortunately, their civilization's lack of non-biologically based teknology leaves them mostly unequipped for a fight, needing to scavenge weapons from fallen enemies.
Most similar to the "Queen" caste, a Workers pride herself on the resemblance and is the only other Bug to possess a mutagenic bite that will turn the victim into another Worker.
(Basically, I'm thinking that it'd work like the poison rules where once a minifig succumb to it, they go into a "cocoon stage" before eventually being replaced by a Worker with all their equipment and sharing their skill dice.)
The Blast Scorpion
Originally engineered for tunneling and demolition work, the Arachnid Empire has found that the powerful, shotgun-like blast of bio-plasma a Blast Scorpion fires from the end of its tail makes an excellent weapon.
The forager caste, sent out to locate sources of food or hunt down more elusive prey.
It'd normally have a stinger filled with paralytic venom to compliment its scimitar-like jaws, but the War with the Tairins has resulted in a variation with the ability to fire Bio-plasma bolts.
The noble and fearless protectors of the Hive.
When compared to the weak pathetic "soldiers" of Minifig armies, the Bug Warrior is a terrifying engine of slaughter.
While former Warriors were developed with scything blades on their forelimbs, current generations have been altered so that they'll grow a faster firing, longer range variation of the bio-plasma organ found on the Blast Scorpion's tail instead.
They also have an extra eye on each to help aim these weapons.
