Recently bought some bugs from Rebel Minis, as I understand it these are the Starship Troopers miniature game metal models he got the rights and molds to. If curious http://www.rebelminis.com/scbuandcr.html
They carry more types in other lines that I didn't get because they didn't fit the look/type I was after. Just quick cleaned the big bugs and black inked all for detail look. Hope my phone camera isn't too bad, lighting may be off because of East Tennessee weather screwing with me. Hope I upload these correct. From left to right are Spider bug, Gargant, Space Scorpion, Eldar Wraithlord, Terror-mite, Rhino (SM2 set), Death Strider, Space Marine (E40K). Space Marine is on a 15mm round base, unpainted gargant (getting there....) is on a 60mm round base, the overhead has a 20mm square and 25mm round base. Good possible nid uses. the space scorpion is 4 parts with the head mounted on a nub like 40K gaunt model, 2 leg sides, and body. Spider bug is 8 parts, 6 of which are legs, thorax/abdomen part, and head. Legs are mounted under the carapace on ball mounts so changing with bits shouldn't be to hard. The head is also a ball socket type of mount. Terror mites are 2 parts with body and leg parts seperate. Death strider is one piece. All are metal, some clean up but not to bad, seen much worse. Customer service from Rebel Minis is amazing. Great communication. Asked about the 6mm line as well during my order, he told me they had issues with the prints and needed them reprinted. They are coming but he isn't exactly sure of the timing yet. Has several other projects ahead. Anyone wants a different angle or any questions let me know. Also added my work in progress on conversion to Tervigon and Biovore from these. Still need green stuff work but just wanted to show some possible uses. Tervi is Terror Mite with ripper and stealer, not to happy with it because the gaunt sac isn't really visible. Biovore is cut down flesh boarer mounted, not sure about that..... loaded pics of comparison backwords.. will fix that next time.

As a fan of Starship Troopers I really like this!

All we need now are some 6mm Aliens and Predators to make a nice alien movie force!
