So, I got back into the hobby around january of 2019 after being out for 10 years. I had never painted a single model but with the advent of warhammer tv, I probably have over 200 painted now and love it! But that brings me to my dilema.
I am starting my Tyranid army again as they have always been my favorite fraction (besides space wolves), but I am paralized but what color scheme to paint them. I have space wolves, ultramrines, deathguard, black legion, and others all painted in at least a slight variation of the box art, with maybe only minor changes. so I am kind of boring...
I fell in love with nids in second ed well before they had dedicated hive fleet colors. I watched the lore develope and like how its been done. So now I have to figure our how I want to paint mine... I saw some amazing HR Giger inspired nids that would love to do some sort of twist on that, at the same time, I love the pale look of leviathon. Which is the complete oposite direction! I also love the original genestealers from space hulk. They are totally from Hive Fleet Hydra. On that note, I have a few genestealer cultists and love how their box art is the same as Hydra so it would make the two armies kind of uniform. As you can see I am paralized! Which is why I havent painted any of my nids.
How did you guys decide how to paint yours? Any advice would be much appreciated!
