Deep in tropical jungles lie floating kingdoms ruled by beautiful and deadly masters: They are sort of the high elves of the ant kingdoms: Talented architects that create castles and city states. But they are also fierce and expansionist warriors and their kingdoms are ensnared in a never ending war for survival. Oecophylla weaver ants.

    Very much to say that Ant are literally mini Warhammer 40k, their queen is the God-Emperor, the flying ant one are the primarchs, the super majors are the space marines, an mini version of Imperium of man, using sheer numbers to win war, they even had their hive city but higher living standards than hive cities, ant workers are a mix of Imperium citizen, Imperial guard, servitor, Adeptus Mechanicus and Sister of Battle since most of worker Ants are all female.

    I am hoping this has inspired someone to make a comic or webnovel about a weaver ant kingdom. "With a deadly abyss below and aerial marauders above, the kingdom of the Weavers is as beautiful as it is deadly."
    I am currently reading Chrysalis and I can't wait for different ant species to be the protagonist of other novels.
