There many variations, both in species and in developmental stages. In general they have six legs and a pair of antenna and can have pinchers ("jaws") in the front. Their colors can range from white-ish to golden to brown to reddish, and sometimes they have wings.

Termites101.org has some good (gross) pictures.
