Bug Recommendations
« on: July 09, 2018, 03:49:23 PM »
You might have seen on my 6mil thread - http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=72814.msg1382899#msg1382899 - my Starship Trooper bugs from GZG,



now I'm looking for larger scale bugs to be proxies for things like Tank Bugs, Plasma Bugs and wondered if anyone had any recommendations from non-6mm lines.

Thanks in anticipation.

I do love those bugs, great work!

Not sure if these would be to your taste but Pendraken do some fun 10mm bugs that may suit:

Hi, I use the Tankers from the Action Fleet range, IIRC. There are Micro Machine figs who are too small except for the Brain bug. Action Fleet has two sizes for tankers. The middle size ones are a great fit for those Gzg bugs. I'm doing Starship Troopers in 6mm. Trying to figure out what to use for Hoppers. I'm producing stuff for the animated series too. I have light mobile infantry ready. Walkers selected. I have 7 or 9 tankers. Over a 100 warrior bugs. Just gotta decide on rules.

Thanks.

John

Good call I may well try those, likely buy three attack bugs so I can hack and two of them would have six legs. Thanks.

I'll have a look on ebay for those. I'm not looking for hoppers yet but if I find anything I'll let you know. I'll be up to around 100 with my latest order from GZG. I'm trying to remember the details of a short set of rules which included a SST variant... I'll dig.
