Is that what you're after?

if they are complete then yes, how many do you have?
and depends on price :lol:

ShroudFilm - August 16, 2012 10:30 PM (GMT)
TEN THOUSAND POUNDS! :D

Just kidding obviously - we'll sort something out. I believe they're in storage at my parents' house, where I will be headed this weekend actually. Let me do a quick count and get back to you.

Yes indeed, they're complete and still on the sprue. I intended to make Megarachnids out of them years ago, but never got round to it.

i have about 6 warrior bugs, 3 hopper bugs, 1 brain bug, and 1 crazy/weird/i don't know bug.
they're all painted (badly) but the paint i used (badly) tends to come off really easily when using nail varnish remover and a toothbrush.
trouble is they're currently stored away somewhere and i'm not quite sure where but i can hunt around for them and let you know if you can wait a while.

erm... i wish? :P
currently i'm living with my grandma in york, and models (including my old starship troopers ones) which i no longer use are with my dad in bedworth. i'm probably not actually going to be there for at least a month so i won't be able to dig them out until i'm next there.

Michaelangelos - August 17, 2012 03:37 PM (GMT)
well I will need as many as I can so ill wait, what does the weird looking one look like?

Carralak - August 17, 2012 05:45 PM (GMT)
i found out what it is: infiltrator bug. there are two models for it, 1 on a terminator sized base and one on an infantry sized base. the smaller one is the bug inside a set of power armour from starship troopers.
the brain bug also came with some chariot bugs but i'm not sure whether i still have those at all.

Adenn - August 17, 2012 05:55 PM (GMT)
If ye need more than you're getting from them, i have a whole load of the warriors still on sprues, from the starter set box they had. see if they have enough to do for ya first though :P

Michaelangelos - August 17, 2012 11:06 PM (GMT)
Oh yea guys I also want broken/damaged, unfinished or even just parts of them :D

Pacific - August 18, 2012 10:36 AM (GMT)
I'll let you know mate, I have to venture into my parent's attic as well to try and locate them! An area I know to be patrolled by some rather large spiders, perhaps indistinguishable from the arachnid models themselves. There is also the chance I'll discover an ancient Incan boardgame, and never be heard from again :D

Out of interest do you mind me asking what you want the models for?

Michaelangelos - August 18, 2012 12:09 PM (GMT)
sure mate

Im planning on using them in warhammer, probably using them as a great crusade enemy, to fit tribute for starship troopers i might use their lore from the film and have them as they are. If I get enough I might create the dioramas from the film, first would without a doubt whiskey outpost. :D

ShroudFilm - August 23, 2012 09:45 AM (GMT)
Hey dude - I have plastic 18 Warrior Bugs, with two of them clipped off the sprue but completely untouched (not trimmed or glued, etc). I reckon that's three boxes' worth?

Also found 3 of the plastic Flying Bugs, all on the sprue and untouched.

Any good?

BigWill - August 23, 2012 12:00 PM (GMT)
So was Murder's original name Klendathu? :D

Michaelangelos - August 23, 2012 07:51 PM (GMT)
Yea fine shroud just depends on price :P

And no Will haha! they aren't gonna be Megarachnids.

ShroudFilm - October 10, 2012 10:43 PM (GMT)

If you still want them, call it 16 including UK postage for the lot, as well as the flying bugs.

ShroudFilm - November 5, 2012 05:47 PM (GMT)
Okay - let me know! I'll check with the post room at work too, in case it's come back or something.

Had a similar problem when sending stuff to Apologist a while back. Should be fine in the end, though.

Michaelangelos - November 9, 2012 08:06 PM (GMT)

Michaelangelos - November 23, 2012 10:50 PM (GMT)
