Tyranid Color scheme
« on: September 23, 2014, 08:59:54 AM »
hi

have seen some nids like this one and i want to give it a try.
does anyone have some great working color schemes for nids?
just want to re-paint my old ones and want to try some different colors.
but it should be a simple one like this in the pics cause i have a lot of tyranids :D

thanks ;-)

Yes, bright colors are appropriate with Nids, especially if you run them with toxin sacs.
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

you need a dark blue color. (i use hobbyline 53 dark blue)
highlight it wis temple guard blue from citadell
after that use tamiya color ts-72 and apply a thin coat over all the parts.

all colors applied with a airbrush.
