Welcome to Librarium Online!
I think it looks cool. Simple, but effective. How time consuming is it though?
I like it! i'd refrain from giving every model black points and tail chevrons and just keep it to a white body with green carapace. I'd also make the white dots on the carapace in a light green and not white, to add a little more contrast between the carapace and flesh. I like the colors, fresh!
It definitely takes longer than would be considered ideal were I going fo a horde style army, but I'm hoping to focus less on numbers and more on a balanced tactical force. The test model took about a day on and off, but that included waiting for layers to dry and doing other things, so I reckon a whole squad of 8 could be done in a day or two. I'd like to do more with patterning on MCs, to make them more 'standout', based on recently seeing this amd feeling massively inspired by the zoanthrope: Necrotales -- Painted Miniatures, Galleries & Tutorials
I guess my main issue with this test piece is that I'm not sure whether the green works or if it looks a bit too much like a cartoon dinosaur.

Hey chief that bad mamma jamma is dynamite. I love the scheme, and with a nice base, your army would look great. Only thing I can say is that a little less detail will help you out, seeing as when there are multiple models, their uniformity makes them outstanding, regardless of slightly less detail.
Aww, I like the tail chevrons and the green 'dinosaur' effect. I don't think it looks cartoony, but it does have a natural look to it one could imagine on a dinosaur. The tail chevrons are striking, like the bands on a young tiger shark. Anyway, that's just what I think, lol
I love the chevrons...though i would lose the polkadots. But then again, i'm not a polkadot kinda girl.
If you're looking for a standout army, the chevrons are certainly worth the extra time.
And the green is refreshing, too. Seeing that the nids I'm painting are a more typical purple scheme, it's good to see something different!
My nurgling wife was right. Your little baby nid is very pretty. I love the extra detail of the dot's I also love the matching shell peices my army has the same thing sides being purple in nature. I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful peices in the future.
Thanks for all the great comments folks
I was thinking, I 'd like to keep the chevrons, but the dots need to be a bit more understated on the chitin. I tried using a drawing pin to paint the dots, but ended up resorting to a fine tipped brush. Does anyone have any advice on how to do good small dots (not quite pinprick size, a little bigger than that)?
