Pretty hard to see.....so this is mostly based on speculation :P

Desert bugs are all well and good, however dont get caught into the trap of thinking "hey, desert is a cool theme, therefore ill have yellow bugs on yellow bases", you need something that contrasts the pale bugs from the pale sand, possibly using blues or purples in select places, or giving a mottled effect to the armour plates, using some different colours, to make your bugs really stand out on the table.

Look at camo patterns from WWII, especially British ones in the North Africa Campaign. Some of the tanks were painted with light blues on their upper hulls to blend them in with the skyline.

For bugs, try mixing in patterns to their skin to make chamo. Bigger pics! The Emperor's Stabby Knifes demand bigger Pics!!!

You need bigger pictures! It's quite hard to see any kind of detail or patterns. If you do Desert, look at some of the Imperial Guard paint schemes for inspiration, there are some pretty good schemes there.

From what I can see, it looks great, but distance can be deciving, so closer pictures would be nice before i can make a final judgement. I really would like to see this thing closer up, cause it looks good from a distance.
