Default Tyranid Color Scheme

Hey guys,
I just got a large number of tyranids from my brother who (sadly) quit warhammer a few days ago. Right now the minis are being stripped of paint, and im not sure what I want to do for the color scheme. I'm thinking something like hive fleet Behemoth, where red and black are dominant. any suggestions?

I was originally going to copy that scheme but decided to go with a different one being:

White undercoat
2 coats of sepia wash over whole model except the carapace (sp)?
Merchite red over carapace followed by Baal red wash

I find it easier to paint so I can get more painted quicker

There's a blue theme listed here

Looks cool. But I usually spray paint my models black. and im really terrible with using white. Another option I was considering is black carapace with red chitin.

I think that would look pretty nice I've only painted 3 of my nids and each ones different in colour because I couldnt find the colour choice I liked until my latest one.

Behemoth is red and dark blue, I can't tell if you know that or not so figured I'd just throw it out there.

The beauty of nids is, go with whatever colors you like. If I ever did a bug army it would be purple and teal.

I think they should be beige with torquoise carapace. Works every time.
