Battle Ant Unit

I built this ant the same way I build most things: experimenting with pieces and keeping occupied. I started trying to make a handgun for a different mech using the bucket handle piece for detail; I’ve seen it used on guns before and it looked really good. But I simply didn’t have the pieces they had to complete the design. But I liked the pattern and didn’t want to ditch it, so I decided to use it as the legs of some sort of bug robot. I went with that, and ended up with this ant you see here.

The ant has moving legs and a moving head, as well as moving shoulder blasters. His minifig companion has all the moving capabilities of a minifig as well as two stud-shooter handguns.
