Default which colour scheme

Hey everyone

i was just wondering which colour scheme everyone thinks is the best and for what reason

I choose Kraken because i think that light browns and reds match very well into an alien race like tyranid

I use a very dark browny/red for the carapace and black for the exoskeleton- i think it would be a better colour as it provides better camouflage in most environments than bright white or yellow (leviathan and kraken respectivley)
I don't have any pics but my description should suffice.

Whay about painting them with green exoskeleton and red carapaces (tyranid speed freaks )

I was thinking of Ork Speed Freaks at the time which is odd because i'm normally thinking of ork Green Tides.

I don't think a picture would be any good because the only decently painted model is very dark and so would look like it was just sprayed black.

To be honest, I greatly dislike pretty much all of the standard-GW schemes. They need to be more animalistic; the best schemes I've seen are inspired by snakes, arachnids, insects, frogs, and the like. Leviathan and Behemoth are particularly lame, in my opinion.

I've never seen the schemes for Daedalus or Ouroboros, though. ???

I must admit I'm not too fond of most of the GW schemes. There is one that has light blue carapace that is pleasing to the eye.

I paint mine all black with varying layers of a boltgun metal wash. The effect is that the creature looks completely different under varying level of light. In low light is looks black, whereas in high lighting it looks metallic.

Aha, I remember that mod. 8)

A good portion of the schemes in that mod are actually just the personal color schemes of the modders and their friends. I used to frequent the forums dedicated to the Tyranid mod; they even asked some of the forum goers for pictures of their Tyranids.

I like my sheme, I don't have a pic, and my paintings bad anyway.
The actual sheme is quite good, Gobilin green skin, heavey drybrush enchanted blue on carapace!
