Welcome to Librarium Online!
Well I was told to repost here so I did, also I had no idea that someone already did hive fleet hydra oh well, just like the name and kind of went with my theme
This is my first post here, I joined a while back as a suggestion from a friend and just never got on here.
I was recently introduced to 40k about a year and a half ago played a little thought it was interesting and then never got any armies or models.
Well recently that all changed I decided that I would get my first army and have decided on some tyranids.
Anyways moving on, I will be posting the progress of models as I go, I am working on some concepts right now. I didn't want to just go with the plain jane typical tyranid army, and so I decided to mod the heck out of them.
It's slow going but I will post pics as I get them.
I currently have
I am going to be getting a hive tyrant, mawloc and some genestealers soon.
I figured this would keep me busy for a bit and I can expand more later, plus money is a factor too.
Hope to hear your comments on my work as I go.
Here are some rough sketches below as well.
I think the Gray-Green will look batter.
Good Luck! and welcome to the most open armed and warm place, the hive Maw!
will look forward to see your pics
I agree. The grey/green will be a striking scheme when fielded en masse. It's also more unique, I think. Good luck, and welcome to the swarm!

I'm for the brown color-scheme, though I think the green one would be better if it was inverted, that is, grey skin and green carapaces. The natural coloring of real-life animals is dark outside, lighter inside due to exposure to the sun. Since the carapace is the surface that is constantly exposed, it would look more natural if it was darker in color.

Thanks guys so far for the comments they are appreciated I agree with you guys on the green being more striking and unique, I also like the desert scheme though too. I have added 2 more color variations based on the same colors
I actually run the same grey/green scheme, and I must say it looks pretty great on everything I've painted up so far (despite my lazy painting strokes).
Admittedly the Green/Brown looks like it could turn out to be very interesting as well.
The grey-green is a good. I think that will stand out alot and allow you to show the details effectively when you paint them. If you decide not to go with it try the bone and brown one, that is good too.
