Tyranid paint scheme suggestions
Sup all, How ya going!
anywho I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a good paint scheme for my nids' however there are just a few requirements:
1. It must be easy - I suck at painting and get frustrated with painting too many bright colour (I once tried painting leviathan, bad move).
2. Quick - When i say quick I just mean that it has to be relatively fast not paint-the-model-black and your done kind of quick but not 4 hours for a single ripper.
3. Paints - I dont have a multitude of paints but I do have quite a few and will probably mix'n'substitute a few colours here and there but the only real colour shortage I have is that of blue with shadow grey being my only 'blue'. Basically what im trying to say is dont give me any 'you need Skull White Paint, Space Wolves Grey Paint, Shadow Grey Paint, Codex Grey Paint, Fortress Grey Paint, Chaos Black Paint, Red Gore Paint, Blood Red Paint, Blazing Orange Paint, Fiery Orange Paint........etc' Keep it to an effective minimum. Oh and no metalic colours, they just dont go with nids.
4. Contrast - while I dont like to many bright colours I do think you need minimum 1 dark and 1 light colour, MINIMUM.
I know this severely limits it but please try, oh and any pics of examples or tutorials would be great!
Praise the sun!
