Not sure if anyone remembers me, I was at a time making an Emperor Titan shortly before I left the forums. (And before anyone asks, I threw it out)
Anyway, after quite a while I have decided to start playing 40k again, this time with Tyranids (I'm buying my Codex this month so I don't have a list written up yet) but I wanted some feedback on a scheme I thought of.
The flesh will be an Asurmen blue wash over a Enchanted blue basecoat.
The carapace will be following the style of having Chaos Black, then building up colours towards the end of the plates finishing with a wash. (Such as seen here.) With the colours being Dark Angels green, Snot green then Rotting Flesh finishing with a Thraka Green wash.
I could maybe use some help with the paints, for example I was thinking of getting rid of the Rotting Flesh and using a Snot Green and Skull White 1:1 mix instead and perhaps having a colour to go over the flesh after the wash not qutie sure what colour would go well though, so any ideas for that please let me know.
Edit: Also what would be a better primer for this scheme, white or black?
Use a black primer. It will bring up the colors better. I like the scheme, an "oceanic" Nid springs to mind. Its sort of hard to visualize what you mean, as every painter will do something different, If you did a test model and put it up here for our opinion, I think you will find that far more beneficial. But I liek the scheme and nothing else really springs to mind to improve on.
Edit: Click the links in my sig and you can find my Begginers guide to the Nids.
Perfect! Now get painting, im anxious to see it
Ha, my advice to you is build a list before you buy the Nids. But rest assure you will always be using termaguants/hormagaunts so they are a safe buy
The battleforce isnt recommended. You wont get to use all the units in it for a decent list. I would recommend getting a pack of hormagaunts and termagaunts. Here is a link to my guide on how to start the nids, I recommend you read it. It will save you loads in the long run and give you a good base to start from.
To skip some info in there I would run this:
Tervigon- Toxin sacs & catalyst
2x Hive Guards
20 Hormagaunts- Toxin sacs
In my opinion it is the PERFECT beginner list. EVERY model in that list I use up to my 3000pt list. That list is pretty dam competitive, probably the best you could do in 500 points.
So you would want to grab hormagaunts and termagauns first. But you will need to make your own tervigon
Uhm, maybe a tyranid prime but I would stick with the tervigon. Just get a carnifex and replace all the limbs with scything talons. Its easy trust me. The tervigon is HIGHLY recommended. Now good luck im off to bed
