It's Halloween season, at least as far as our retail stores are concerned, and for the cheap fantasy miniaturist, that means bags and bags of outstandingly cheap toy critters for use as fantasy miniatures. Lots of plastic bugs and other creepy beasties can be had for very little at all kinds of stores. The color figures are from a bag of bugs I bought at a Spirit Halloween store last year, while the black plastic ones I just bought at a Dollar Tree.
|Beetles, and a grasshopper and mantis.|
|A huge bat.|
|A somewhat smaller but still pretty large rat.|
|A lizard, snake, and centipede.|
|A housefly, bee, dragonfly, and wasp.|
|Scorpions. The smaller white figure is a Reaper Bones figures. All the Reaper bugs are about this size.|
|Spiders and an ant. The green spider is from the World of Warcraft board game.|
