As requested, lets find out if alternate versions of scarabs are same size as gw scarabs. I got like 20-30 gw scarabs and i purchased 24 trinity scarabs from ebay. I also noticed that my malifaux arachnids are similar sized.
From left to right. First is malifaux arachnids. In the middle is gw original scarabs. And right lane is reserved for trinity alternative scarabs from ebay.
Those tiny scarabs are made with greenstuff with the help of instant mold and spyder scarab hive.
Maybe something like this?

Lately i have been building and painting infantry, and loads of them. 30 warriors later i decided to get break from infantry and get some transports. Usually when im done with squad or two of infantry i reward myself with painting a tank or character. Next time when its time to get some rewards im going to pick character. This one was nightmare to build. Over 100 pieces and few hours later i have only managed to assemble it and apply some base coat, its still missing its crew of 10 and all gauss weaponry. When ever i have been lazy with crons im going to punish myself with the ghost ark, i still need 2 of them.
Around week ago i was wandering in the webs just to kill time, when i accidentally found http://www.stronghold-terrain.de website and saw these beautiful burning tires. I decided to order one set to see what they were like. Order went smoothly, i registered, ordered and payed via paypal. And last friday i received them.
Nice sturdy box with clean address and return address incase of problems
Good padding and receipt. Everything was minigripped, smoke effect is nice.
Wow, extra bits. These were nice suprise. Around 28mm scale
Good cast, no warping. Looks stunning, goes well with 40k and warmachine.
Conclusion : im going to buy more, i usually only order 1 item if never ordered or know someone who has ordered. These tires will be nice addiditon to my terrain collection. I was thinking of something like this in 40k. They are considered difficult terrain with additional effects.
Turn 1 : roll D6, on a roll of 6's the tires are on fire and are considered as dangerous terrain and generate smoke to block LOS. Turn 2: roll D6, on a roll of 5+, same as above. Turn 4 = 4+, turn 3 = 3+, etc.

Omega Vault Incident is the name of the campaign that we started today. This is the first match Crons vs Nids. It was played on 4 x 4 table, spearhead, killpoints. Our armies are still very much in progress, nothing is ready at the moment. We are going to add army lists that were used and campaing rules in near future.
This was a 500 point game, the game was pretty fast. 2 turns and everything was in melee that lasted 4 turns. This was a Draw.
