    the styles that i have seen are usually a solid beige type colour for the main body and the plates of armour on the head, shoulder, tail, back etc. are a different colour, from red to blue, i have also seen a neat ice type one with white bodies and blue armour plates

    Yeah, in general with Nids, you pick something either plain or outlandish, you could make the FGT, the Flaming Gay Tyranids (not all that dissimilar to robin williams&#39; flaming gay eldar) generally if you&#39;re going for outlandish, go for very bright, almost obnoxious colors, or you can add some metalics.

    The general ones used are a brown/red mix, or purple/black mix, I like the purple/black, but it would be nice to see a properly painted purple/black/chrome scheme.

    Mine are brown and blue, and metallic green, but the larger the model is the less brown and more orange you see on it. It&#39;s a very congruous style.

    I don&#39;t have any nids so I can&#39;t be very specific but there is a guy at the shop nearby that has a nicely painted bunch. He used very light pastel colours and drybrushed on layers of them.

    They look nice, a big difference from the other nid schemes I&#39;ve seen.
