Those look pretty good. Definitely looks space-born. Surprisingly, Latin and Spanish are not hard to pronounce. Tempus as TechPr1est suggests is pronounced like temp in temperature and us. The thing with Spanish is that the vowels only have one sound, unlike English, so that makes things a little easier and there are virtually no silent letters. But if you aren't comfortable using the language then you probably should not. Look to mythilogical beasts like most of the GW fleets have. Hydra, Basilisk, Gorgon, Revenant, Cerberus, Dryad, Golem, Naga and Syren to name a few.

If you're going for names, remember that hive fleets are named after monsters, usually mythical ones, the monstrously huge mythical ones. Someone can correct me, but I don't think ones like Scylla or Charybdis have been taken (though Scylla was used for a now destroyed Ork-controlled space hulk). I picked the pair since they're known for devouring.
I guess I never really realized that wow I am slooooow lol

I liek the start you have here, one thing I wuold suggest is retouching the eyes some. Once you get paint in there if you get too much you can go back over it with the skin color and clean it up some so paint is only in the eye and not all around it. Also, think about thinning out the paints a little bit, other than that it's a great start, keep it up.

I think I might try to find one for the green it just takes sooooo long for new paints to get to me and I was tired of not painting anything I like their look for now and might do a wash on the green to give it some more depth.

I hope you don't the sort of accent that would make "Nagar" sound distasteful...

First off it is nA not nI nad second Nagar is from a Norse myth. Yes I will grant it is is Nhggr but I can't say or write that and yes the full english version is Nidhogg Nagar but that doesn't really sound all that bad ass. But Nagar is one word and generally I think sounds better it isn't my fault if people can't pronounce things right.

My last name I posted has since been associated with a word I HATE and now it is stuck in my head that way.

Hive Fleet Kiyohime is now on its way to destroy everything in the universe!
