    Any of you use separate painting schemes for each species in your Nid army? One paint scheme covering over 100 models always seems a bit boring to me, so I paint by species and have an army with lots of different looking critters in it. Anyone else ever painted a Nid army this way?

    Do not meddle in the affairs of Tyranids, for you are crunchy and taste good with everything!

    Personally, I painted the different types of 'nids with slightly different patterns, but using the same overall palette of colors to give the army a unified look. You could go hog wild & paint each unit differently, but when you get the whole army on the table, I think it looks nicer when you can tell they all came from the same hive. :lol:

    I did add a few oddball colors here & there as unit identifiers (e.g., small orange freckels or small green freckles on genestealers' heads to tell one squad from another).

    I thought about making every choice a different colour, so my HQ was on, troops another etc. But Tyranids are sort of unified as a hive and swarm forward as one colour. I don't know how it would work.
