Default Vespid Thread!!! (now with pics!)

I've been looking at doing up some test Vespid, but I only have 2 right now (one blister) and am thinking I don't want to do the standard grey skin. Could people please post (preferably with pics, but if not just the blending scheme) what they've used for alternative Vespid "skin"?

Thanks!!!

Yeah, I've seen that one, but it's still the classic grey skin. I'm looking for something different. I've found some red and green Vespid, not so sure they would look so good with the rest of my armies (Tau, see left, Kroot are Orange and soon to be Desert Yellow, Gue'Vesa are (almost) standard Cadian colours.)

I dunno, would a Desert Yellow based Vespid skin scheme look good? Thier armour is gonna be Snot Green. I don't really want to do that though, I've got enough desert yellow and snot green in my Tau army, so I kinda want something different. I don't want red skin, no Christmas Vespid. And all green is...boring (sorry Scizor)

So I'm stuck. Need help...Purple? Blue? Hot Pink (80s Vespid)?

They are nice, but again, they're red. I wanna know what Aun he's got there, I've been thinking of doing one just to have (I'll probably never put it on the field, just a showcase type thing)

I like the brown idea, I may give that a go. Scorched Brown to Vermin maybe?

I also perused the 'Nids codex, I'm thinking maybe doing the Vespid chitin like the 'nid chitin in the new 'dex, black with purple edges. Any thoughts on this?

Maybe black with bleach bone markings. You can also Google some pics of insects like bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets and the like
