Welcome to Librarium Online!
well i was planing on getting stealers and my paint scheme was this:
under side-bleached bone/bubonic brown.
top pf head, back, and other top areas-black with bubonic brown drybrushed.
it looks like a bobbit worm... whitish orange/yellow belly and blackish back.
basically my nids would run with mostly he black showing then when the enemy comes they would lay down and only show black to hide. then ambush them with their big bright undersides right b4 they grab n' slash em.
You're planning from what I can tell for a kind of natural camoflage look. Thats a good idea. This is similar to creatures like sharks. If you look at a sharks underside it is usually pale so when seen from below it will be hard to spot. Thats assuming of course the sun isn't directly above it.Originally Posted by Martyrdom
There are other animals which use colour in a variety of ways. Many poisonous insects use bright colours as a warning, I'm sure you've had a encouter with a wasp. You could try to include varied colours to an extent in your swarm. Different models with different biomorphs could have maybe only mildly differing colours from others depending on thier abilities.This would be a interesting way of helping to show varied biomorphs.
