Default Color Scheme: Opinions

I used the online tyranid painter to make this, it basically involves rotting flesh over a basecoat of desert yellow, and some sort of yellow (possibly boubonic brown mixed with sunburst yellow) over a black carapace with red highlights over black talons and watered down scorched brown or brown ink in the recesses.

Like? Dislike?

Thanks for the feedback.

I'm sorry to everyone for the lack of a larger picture, I'm pretty inept with computers (Which is part of the reason I like warhammer instead of computer games ). For those who need clarity due to the pic's tiny size, the crevices in the armor are brown. Also, the rubing that connects the gun shouldn't be the color it is, but I had no choice (it is automatically assigned the same color as the cracks in the armor)

I was originally going to go for a theme earily close to this one, but I have found that making the whole body black instead of white looks much better. If I had photobucket I'd post a picture of some of my stuff, but I would suggest trialing it on a gaunt, then try the black body. Looks quite effective.

Yellow with rotting flesh looks kinda awkward, but if it appeals to you, why not use it?
