    I can't choose between two paint schemes that i've been wanting to do, they both look good since i've painted two gaunts those ways.
    Scheme 1- the grey colour scheme from the codex
    Scheme 2- rainbow nids!!!

    personally i think both of those ideas suck... you should come up with your own idea instead of the codexes and the grey one of all to choose from the grey one&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; and rainbow would look terrible on no matter what your playing and then you&#39;d have to go out and get all those diffrent paints

    yup, lots of paints, whith my scheme i use around 30 clolours... so maybe about 60 for the rainbow nids, if you use various shading techniques...
    if you are reading this signature, then you are wasting you're time, and i am wasting my time by writing it, so run along now, jimmy, run along.

    2 colours, how is that possible, unless you don&#39;t highlight or shade, or is it an entirely black and white swarm, only using black and white, grey mixed from the two for shading?

    If you REALY want one of those, i suggest the grey one. You should see other ones. The one in the 4th Edition rulebook with black and yello looks cool. Mine is the black, white and red one with white carapace, black flesh and a red stripe across the carapace.

    rainbow makes the nids look prissy and like fruit cakes thats the worst think to do with a good evil army go do that with like your kroot or something dont make a mockery of tyranids it wont even look good maybe if you like add alot of colors but for details and such and have like at the most three-four base army colors and thats why you use alot but if you got like 20 colors on the carapace and 40 colors on skin the tyranids gonna look jacked
