They came out a little darker than I wanted, so the remaining six will get a little color tweaking. Otherwise I'm relatively pleased with how they came out. There's nothing that really indicated scale on them so they could be used with just about any scale, though 6mm might be a bit much unless you want big bugs to squash.

I like 'em -- nice work. The bases are great, too -- simple but effective. (Are those pennies?)

 

 

1 1/4" fender washers

 

Pennies fit entirely between the legs, and a 1" washer was just a hair too small. I was looking for a wasteland kind of appearance as I figured these beasties would destroy whatever environment they were in.

Finished up the rest of them after tweaking the colors some to make the details more visible. Kind of cheated and used the Minwax dip on them (though I really brushed it on), but the results are better than the two test paints. More pictures at my blog
