Re: Alternate Sculpts

Proxy for Red Ants of Aunstrom or Xualtiaca Fire Ants:

Pathfinder Battles: Jungle of Despair #006 Giant Ant

Personally I have some of these as well as some of the official Safari Good Luck and Dungeon Crawler minis and they make a good squad of 3 unique sculpts useful for either C3V/SoV squad.

Re: Alternate Sculpts

Those are definitely not cheaper than a 10 cents Safari per ant but they do look good.

Re: Alternate Sculpts

I might be willing to pay a little more for ants that were less squishy.

Sorry to do this on this thread, but I bought a couple boxes of those Dust miniatures, and they seem pretty good except at the waist, there's a pretty significant gap where the model turns. Did either of you fill in those gaps? Would you have any recommendations for how to do so? Seems like the gap is big enough to bug me, but small enough that it would be hard to get glue into...

Re: Alternate Sculpts

I would say it's a fairly small gap IMO but I do prefer to not have moving parts on my minis so superglued them solid. On the gaps on mine I may just fill in with a drop of white glue as it'd be a lot less work than pushing tiny bits of putty into the gaps and would fill it in easily.

The Safari ants are very rubbery I agree, I found that easier to pose them a bit different on bases so they look a bit more like a regular squad. If harder plastic is desired the fake ants that are listed in the second post are hard injection mold style plastic.

Cool. And that seemed to work fine for you?

EDIT: And thanks for your suggestion to @TREX !

Re: Alternate Sculpts

I've not filled them in with while glue just yet. I may give it a go.
