The insect army

insect army hero.jpg

We suspect that Dutch artist Job Van Der Molen might have been a bit influenced by gory bugs v men saga Starship Troopers with his new piece of work, appropriately titled Insect Army.

He preserved a range of insects and then equipped them each with a set of weaponry, just in case creepy crawlies were ever forced into an all-out war with us, or more believably, cats.

You can find more of his work here. We're off to rewatch Paul Verhoeven's epic bug classic, being a bit more careful where we tread on the way.
