    New 40k, new army, new colour scheme. C+C please

    So, I was in GW earlier, and fancied doing something new, something that I could play around with the new washes and could get a fair few models painted up to a reasonable standard in a short space of time. I got a biovore first of all, I simply liked the mini, thought the rules for it seem cool, and it was in stock!

    Results of prelim paint testing are below. Its only very roughatm as I'm just trying a few things out. The main problem is I don't want to overdo the no. of colours on it. I'm pretty happy with what I have there, and plan to transfer most of the scheme to my broods: blue wash "armour", sepia for the more fleshy bits and green for any of the more gribbly bioweapons. I may well do a purple wash over the green, and use the others sparingly in different places, but I want the majority of the minis I paint to be done using ony basecoats and the washes.

    C+C welcome and appreciated.

    Well that is a pretty unique colour scheme. I would say that it would benefit from some more highlighting, though. What have you planned for your bases?

    I'm still experimenting with various colours. The problem with highlighting is I went for the small nid army to see what the washes can do, and I'm painting it using pretty much JUST the washes if I can. I'll give ita another coat tonight and see how things go. I've also added in alittle purple with the green. This seems to work nicely. As for the bases, They're a bit of an afterthought. Lets see how the rest looks first I think.

    The color scheme certainly fits the Tyrannid description. I like it! However, it looks like you sort of overdid it with the washes, but that gives him a nice 'scaly' texture. I'm conflicted...

    As I said, this is purely me pushing the washes to see what they can do, and using only washes as much as possible. So overdoing them is kind of the point!

    I'm always good at reading the whole post, especially if it's more than 2 sentences
    Again, nice color scheme, and nice paint job.

    Oh, I just remembered. My friend is starting 'nids, so do you have any advice to him on painting them? He sends his thank yous.

    What I did was get a white basecoat, paint a watered down fortress grey all over the model, overbrushed again with white then used the washes straight out the pot. simple as. No highlighting, no mixing, no layering, and a pretty quick result. It has taken a couple of coats to get a look I'm happy with though.

    The three colors you used together doesn’t make the model look very ferocious at all. I think you should choose some darker colors or maybe switch out the green or the flesh/yellow for another color and see if you get a better result.
    What is dis signature nonsence?! dem stupid human zoggers are always trien to confuze us.
