Random new nid color attempt
« on: December 17, 2014, 04:32:21 AM »
Gonna be getting the nid half of Deathstrike (or w/e the new box set is called) for Xmas so I'm working on my own color scheme.

No real idea so far, just trying out a bunch of different things.

This set of pics is for a mocha like color scheme I was thinking of. Thoughts?

Dont pay any mind to the color of this dudes skin!

He is a long standing paint test dummy, so his skin has been painted and repainted many times. Hes got mostly a red and bronze color thing going on his skin so just take note of the armor.

I like the carapace. Have you considered doing a rust colored flesh for your kids? I think it would make your mocha carapace look warmer.
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.

Beyond the trick with typhus corrosion and ryza rust, I have no idea how to get a rust color on anything.
I could probably look it up online. But how would you go about painting rust colored skin for nids?

Hmm. Try a brown base with a red layer, some typhus corrosion to match what you did with your carapace and a light dry brush of ryza rust on the edges.
