There should be some in the TFT Companion SJ TFT errata article - offhand I don't remember (?) such diagrams being added elsewhere in the Legacy edition.
Actually, DT2 had a 2 hex lizard, and Unicorn Gold had 2 hex giant beavers (no, I ain't kidding...)

Yes, Death Test 2 kindly even gives a 2-hex facing diagram, but it's a spoiler ... ;-D and I still have my excessive numbers of official 2-hex beaver counters and other little-used bizarre counters from Unicorn Gold. :-D

Already done!

Swarms of wasps, spiders, pirahnakeets, vampire bats, and if you want to call them swarms: rats and scuttles. uncut sheets fit perfectly in a pocket box. Link to the picture below:

But yeah, I suppose you could simply use plain old boring, non-magically flexible, non-Super normal counters, though… I mean, if you want to go cheap, and are afraid to break the Laws of Geometry. ;)

I believe that the Dungeon Dangers Cardboard Heroes set has swarm counters - I have the full dead-tree version, so I'm not 100% sure how it was all split up for PDF's. Yes, they still obey euclidean geometry, but they'll work. And, you can print them and laminate them to write on.
