Getting enough bases can be problematic, however. You get 3 bases per 12 warriors, and that's just with 4 scarabs per base. I want something a bit more swarm like, but I'm not sure I want to go the casting route, as cool as that looks.
I had a look around for alternative miniatures, and discovered that some of the recent Tomb Kings releases came with scarab beetle decorative bitz. While they decidedly non-robotic, I figure they'll look pretty good painted up the same as the regular scarabs; maybe an alternate make or model or something. I ordered some, and they arrived recently. Unfortunately they were a little smaller than I was anticipating, but I think they still might work scattered amongst the bigger bugs. What do you think?
|I think they might be enough to let me spread my scarabs out a bit whilst still looking suitably swarm-like.
