Welcome to Librarium Online!
I need help deciding on a colour for the main body areas of my Tyranids. I am thinking black, layered up to a deep red for the carapace, and black talons and claws, highlighted along the edges. Does anyone have any suggestions for a colour that would fit with this?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
my colour scheme was black with red gore to blood red then a final trim of feiry orange.
dont be too neat. i can try get some pictures up later if you want :lol:
I really can't think of anything witty to say.
Skin tones to go with a dark or deep red would be purple or green for me at least. I know, red and green instantly makes you think Christmas, but if the red is very dark and you keep the green in suit (I'm thinking Dark Angels green with very slight highlights) they should compliment eachother nicely. Purple could also work, but you'll probably want to go brighter on the highlights. Maybe start with a red heavy purple and highlight more towards blue.
I'm seeing alot of reallife and suggested black carapace bugs lately. Seems people are rebelling against the white/purple scheme GW is pushing.
I'll stick with my Blue and Green bugs though. Unfortunalty, I recently picked up the Red Terror (9 MCs here I come) and I'm trying to figure out how to add red to my scheme. Maybe just his talons....

I would reccomend something like this although i would change the following and do it like this:Originally Posted by Cortana
red gore basecoat on the carapace,
then i would highlight with blood red,
then maybe varnishy the black claws or highlight them with grey.
Cheers. dark green sounds good, and I see what you mean about the purple and bone scheme on the GW Tyranids.Originally Posted by Gojiratoho
Been thinking about the claws. Would it work with the red and green if I highlighted from black to white or grey, then washed them with blue ink, for a shiny blue/black beetley sort of colour?
I aint the painting expert but what about if you got the skin up to white then apply the blue colour you want then do a black ink wash?It might look cool because the skin will be blue but in the reccesses it will be black which will bring out the detail more aswell.
Oh ok sorry i must have misread it.Well if you want the claws blue then well how light do you want the blue to be?
