What paints did you use to get that result?
WH 40k Armies (W/L/D):
Tyranid: 2250 Points of Awesome (5/4/1)
Necrons: 1000 Points (4/0/1)
acrylic art paint. Antique white and hunter green with a brown wash
Nice choice of colours, it brings a sense of realism to the tyranids.
If you want to take it further, try adding some highlights to the green extended carapace and tips of the rending claws, and maybe some of the smaller details like the tongue, eyes, teeth etc. and to top it off, make the base a little more appealing such as a simple dark brown or black around it's base to tidy it up?
Otherwise, it's a nice piece
MrDee's doing a very similar, if not exactly the same, sort of paint scheme, you could find some good tips on how to paint up your 'Nids faster and more effectively. Here's the link: >>Linky<< (Diversionary Nids)
oh yeh its far from a finished model. None of the details are done and base needs to be painted brown and highlighted and grassed. Thanks for the kind words lol. I showed it to some friends at my flgs today and they all liked it as well. I am very limited in my painting ability so try to find techniques and colors to do things easy.
