I wish I had kept track of where I found these. I think it was an educational supply website. But I just did a Google, and I couldn't find anything like them for sale.

Local Dollar Stores, or Party Stores? Especially around Halloween.

I bought some plastic Ants, more than a decade ago. They are truly terrifying, in 1e AD&D's Monster Manual: heavily armored, literally up to 400 of the beasties, and relentlessly capable of very great harm. The bat had 100+ ants in it. I started basing them around 5 years ago, but I moved away from that project as they are rather limited in variety of usage. I need to finish them as they are sooo easy to prep for a game.

I agree, both the Flies and the Ants, need some white/grey dry brushing to bring out their details. Otherwise they are just black lumps on the tabletop. Cheers!
