...Have you gone through and actually read this thread?

Eh, might as well do another overview anyways:
Image
THE BUGS!

The Pseudo-Arachnid Empire was one of the first interstellar civilizations the Tairin Federation made contacted with.
In the begining the Arachnids tried to establish friendly relations with the Federation, but negotiations broke down quickly when the Tairin ambassador began insulting the Empress herself, calling her things like "a disgusting fat-ass".
Enraged at this slight against their great queen's gloriously engorged thorax, the Bugs now wage ceaseless war against Federal feces and their "Bitchy" leaders.

The Worker
Image
Coupling the versatile adaptability of the upper humanoid torso with the rugged dependability of a more arthropodic frame, the intelligent Worker is well suited for a variety of task, including building and interacting with minifigs.
Unfortunately, their civilization's lack of non-biologically based teknology leaves them mostly unequipped for a fight, needing to scavenge weapons from fallen enemies.
Most similar to the "Queen" caste, a Workers pride herself on the resemblance and is the only other Bug to possess a mutagenic bite that will turn the victim into another Worker.
(Basically, I'm thinking that it'd work like the poison rules where once a minifig succumb to it, they go into a "cocoon stage" before eventually being replaced by a Worker with all their equipment and sharing their skill dice.)

The Blast Scorpion
Image
Originally engineered for tunneling and demolition work, the Arachnid Empire has found that the powerful, shotgun-like blast of bio-plasma a Blast Scorpion fires from the end of its tail makes an excellent weapon.

The Hunter
Image
The forager caste, sent out to locate sources of food or hunt down more elusive prey.
It'd normally have a stinger filled with paralytic venom to compliment its scimitar-like jaws, but the War with the Tairins has resulted in a variation with the ability to fire Bio-plasma bolts.

The Warrior
Image
The noble and fearless protectors of the Hive.
When compared to the weak pathetic "soldiers" of Minifig armies, the Bug Warrior is a terrifying engine of slaughter.

Image
While former Warriors were developed with scything blades on their forelimbs, current generations have been altered so that they'll grow a faster firing, longer range variation of the bio-plasma organ found on the Blast Scorpion's tail instead.
They also have an extra eye on each to help aim these weapons.

Is this somewhat inspired by Earthworm Jim? It sounds familiar.

I guess it's all cool, i don't have any problems with nothing. Although, if you got a physical brick version of the Warrior, those feet would probably have a very hard time standing up like that. What you need are some Tank Bugs.

Well it's mostly Starship Troopers film, but yeah, I probably did subconsciously copy Queen Slug-for-a-butt as the template for the Queen Caste.

Then again, there are a lot of other examples of Woman-Bug hybrids with a human torso and huge egg-laying thoraxes...
And both sides are run by stereotypical females...

Eh, I'll cross that bridge if and when I come to it...

Though I don't know about "Tank Bugs"...
Warriors are kind of the Arachnids armor units and I'd have two or three of them on the field...

Well if that's the case, it'd probably be just some variation of the Blast Scorpion...
But remember, the Blast Scorpion is a Bug that totes a BlastGun from the 2010 edition Brikwars rules, and I'd hopefully make a half dozen or more.

And in any case, the only thing bigger on the Tairin Federation side then the Athena Battlemech I'm currently dreaming up would be the Tairin Dropship, which is basically going to be the equal to an Arachnid Queen.

I've only played around with Minifig parts on LDD, I'm assuming you're going to try to get physical versions of your creations.

Does LDD/Lego allow you to order all the parts from your creation at once or something? because if it didn't, it'd be a hell of a time trying to get all the parts for some of those things,

I know it gives you instructions for your creations, some of them are kind of ass-backwards though it's kind of funny.

Well they just recently removed the "Design by Me" function, which did allow you to do that...

But converting the instructions to HTML will give you a parts list at the end, INCLUDING the crucial part numbers you'll need to order them after market.

they can never make anything simple can they..

I wish you could have just bought minifig parts seperatley, in whatever quantity you want, Stormtroopers for example.

But nooo, You have to buy them in $15 sets, 1 guy at a time.
