I painted this one as a testcase for a schema. i would like to hear critics about it.
It's a little bit rushed, that i have to admit. But it's generally the idea for this schema.
Not a paint paint scheme. Very earthy definatley looking 'niddy
Possibly drybrush the highlights onto the carapace to give it that boney/shell like texture
I think the model should be lightened up a hair more...other than that good job
Is it still a work in progress? Or is that your finished color scheme?
I think overall it looks rather bland if the color is used over the whole piece. The color is fine but I would suggest finding a secondary lighter color to counter balance it. I would probably go lighter on the carapace - perhaps a bone white...
I get the sense that speed is your primary concern. If not you may also want to look at paintng the joints another color as well...
Otherwise there is definitely potential in the scheme. I personally like more natural less bright colors...

It's very nice but perhaps there could be a little more difference in colour between the carpace and the skin (like what slorak suggested I guess).
CHK CHK BOOM!
Niiiiiiiiiiice. I love the mini. May I suggest an ink wash? Something to give it gloss like an insect's shell.

The model is pretty much finished. The colorscheme is based on browns. the backplates is charred/beasty 1:1 and the rest of the body is beasty/parasite 1:1.
As for the drybrushing, indeed that would look good, but i'll need to get a new brush for that, the old one is busted.
I can add some bonewhite to the 'body' ( if that you mean with the carapace) but that will start to look orangely. Overall not a bad idea, that bonewhite, indeed the body self is kinda dark. my idea is to keep the back dark and the body a lighter color.
As for time concerns. No, i'm willing to spend time for it. This model is unfortunately done a bit fast.
The inkwash, i guess you mean the chesnut wash? or one of the new of citadel??
It is a really nice job, but I do agree with the others that it needs lightening up a touch - I always think that the more earthy natural looking colours look a bit more "domestic animal" than "inter-galactic alien killing machine", if you know what I mean.
Nice job, though!
IMO it's good for a base but not for a finished model, it could use a few extras, using some contrast between the carapace and the skin can be done with either drybrushing or using ink, off course the other colour to use is up to you.
