Hey every one!
I need help naming my nid army. The color scheme that I am aiming for is a greyish body, a light green carapace (going to try and make it look like its glowing(going to try and make them look like they have radiation poisoning)), white eyes and teeth, claws and hooves are going to be teal with a purple highlite, and the gun is going to be purple (still need to decide on that, and the flesh is going to be a light green. So if that helps you out, I would love to hear your ideas for my nid army name.
If you are considering radioactive nids, I would suggest the following name:
Hive fleet Wormwood.
Two other large hive fleets have been named after biblical beasts (Behemoth and Leviathan). While not a "beast," in the book of revelations, there is a star that falls to earth
"And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and a third of the waters became bitter and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."
Having its mere existence reduce the potable water of a planet by a third to make it easier to take over seems like a dirty hive fleet trick.
Just my two cents.

Thanks Ainom. I really like the sound of Hivefleet Wormwood, I think it has a certian ring to it.
I really like the name Typhon, That's how I named my hive fleet. Its been a while since I last checked what it meant, But I believe in mythology it is the mother monster who created all the other uglies like cerberus. Thought It kinda fitted with the whole spawning thingy the nids have going on.
Nom, Nom, Nom, the tyranids eat yow face
Given that all the Hive Fleets have the names of mythical creatures (Gorgon,Kraken,etc) I would advice you to name it something like:
Skylla (Greek mythology)
Wadjet( Egyptian mythology)
Einhergar (Norse mythology)
Thanks, I have been looking at Mythical creatures and the name I like is Hive Fleet Bakunawa, I need help on creating a color scheme for them though. The Bakunawa is a sea serpeant who creates the eclipse in the philipinnes mythology. Any ideas would be helpfull.
If it helps mine is Hive Fleet Drakhen.
Edit: How about Cockatrice... ?
My Nids are named "Hive Fleet Basilisk" as it pretty much follows the standard naming conjecture of mythological creatures. If you were looking for a name for radiactive nids, you could go with somthing like "Hive Fleet Cerastes". Not totally mythological per say, but it is the name of a venemous snake that hides under the sand and uses horns on it's head to detect prey before launching sneak attacks to capture them. Sounds like a pretty niddy tactic to me, .
