    i like them actually, i was picturing a a tyranid warrior with big flippers and gills, but i like what you have better. I think that your paint job could be improved by using thinner paints,e.i. more water because its clumped on the ends of the claws..it looks like you tried to drybrush as well, i would try getting more paint off the brush before the strokes, it looks blotchy in places. Also, i would scrap off the mould lines....they really can ruin a good paint job. Good job, but you can make them even better with a little elbow grease and some patience, i hope to see more later....

    Not bad at all, but I am not really a fan of metalics anywhere near 'nids. I agree that you should make sure you get rid of the mould lines, they grab paint like anthing when you are drybrushing. Also, you need to remember that with drybrushing, less is definitely more, and if you don't like the result, you can just lightly drybrush it again. I would also like to suggest the posibility of using an ink wash before the drybrush to get a nice deep, dark feel to them, and complement the drubrushing.

    Good so far, and I look forwards to seeing them develop.

    I love the colours. I didn't have the balls to do something so daring.

    Nids are great because you can paint the pink and they're still scary.

    Sorry mate, I don't like it. Drybrushed with a blueish green and a greenish blue doesn't work for me, unremoved mold lines and the base looks undone.

    I would water down the base and use highlighting and shading as the main stuff on these. I'm not a fan of drybrushing. :rolleyes:

    Again.. those colors just don't work for me.

    I think you are off to a good start your plus points being that you seem to be revealing the details fairly well instead of avoiding them. I suggest to remove mould lines etc and work on some areas.

    You should try to make you painting neater and cleaner. This will make them easier to look at. Then try to paint areas like the teeth and eyes. I find the best way to do these areas is to paint them a darker colour and then paint them using a detail brush.

    Try to paint the joints. An easy way is to take some ink such as red ink. Use only a tiny amount on the brush, no blobs. Them Apply it to the areas in the joints. This will gib=ve you more depth.
