Apart from the obvious Chaos Androids, there is Dark Realm Miniatures 6mm range of Andrayadas (androids)

For comparative purposes, this is a Chaos Android:

Scarabs, with a bit of conversion, could be destroyers or tomb spiders.

Scarabs make fun Destroyers and Tomb Spyders.

I'm doing it as a joke for 40K. I'm converting all my Scarabs into mini destroyers.

The Heavy Weapon infantry models in CAV can be converted nicely for it:

Scarab: Removing the 'toes' from the sides of the model
Amputate the 'head' area (The round jewel thing, and the little section right behind it)

snip off a gun of your liking from the heavy weapons. Stick a body in place of the head, and glue the gun onto the right arm.

I've made a few. I'll post some pics once I get the chance.

We have seen some excellent Destroyers using 40K Scarabs and the top halves of Epic Warp Spiders (yes, really - it looks better than it sounds!).

Wraiths have been converted using (again) old Epic Chaos Androids and old Epic Tyranid Gaunts and Hormagaunts:

Where can I get Chaos Androids?

That is the bad news. They originally came in the Stompa Epic boxed set - which also contained cool Chaos Dreads, Imperial Dreads and my favourite Ork Stompas, along with Terminators and a few other bits. However, as with most Epic, these are long out of production. Your best place would be places like EBay, but since they do make excellent Necrons, prices can be reasonable high.

I've found chaos androids on ebay before. I also sculptured my own epic necrons, but they are from the original range and I have no way of casting them unfortuantly.
