well personably i was going to start tyranids but i saw the tau so meh

any way i was going to paint the open bits of my tyranids with a bright warm color e.g. yellow then the places like vains and small parts with a dark warm color e.g. purple or marroon to be different but i dont know wether this has helped ??? but i sudgest if your doing the carapiece dark its good if you higlight the edge with a bit of lightness to make it stand out :-\

There's a Vallejo color called Field Blue, that's sort of a dark blue/green (mostly blue, llike a dark ocean color)
I paint(ed) my Tyranids with a Space Wolves Grey carapace and Field Blue skin, but you could reverse that.
I laugh at the fools who thought Tau Online Chat Op is hard work! :shifty:

Paint the skin purple and the carapace orange. Highlight the orange parts red.
