Your Gibbering Paint Scheme thoughts

Recommended Posts

I'm going to grab some of the excellent base-coat spray primer colors from Army Painter when my beasties arrive.  One on top, one under belly, then wash and blend.

completely unsure of the color combos I will choose, however.

 

Do any of you look at these critters and know what you are going to attempt to make them look table-worthy?

I've gotten used to painting lots of models one colour - I played Tyranids afterall. I'll likely stick with the official colours because I like them, but for the Frenzy I'm considering painting each one as a different breed of shark.

I haven't decided on colors yet, but I'm most excited by beach/tide pool/coastal basing and terrain ideas. I've been doing some research into making miniature tide pools the last couple days, but that'll have to come later.

I quite like the look in the artwork, with pale, seafoam greens and darker details/carapaces.

Not sure about specific colors yet, but let's just say I have been googling lot of pictures of fishes, deep-sea creatures and Lovecraftian deep ones. 

Some murky shades of gray, blue and green are gonna see lot of use.

My wife played Chaos Space Marines for a bit, and her models were always in eye-gouging neon colors. She considered it psychological warfare.

personally, I think I'm going to go for an off-white underbelly, and probably blue with a silver base coat for the top to give it a proper fishy/sea creature look.

All very cool ideas! I think turquoise metallics for the skin could also make them look fishy.

Could work. I personally will probably experiment with gloss varnish. Make them look wet and slimy.

I'm going to go with deep sea and amphibian creatures: For instance

Spotted skulkers I think are going to be like poison dart frogs.

Karkinoi I'm hoping to do like mantis shrimp. 

 

This game is going to make me learn to airbrush... O_O

The possibility of painting the skulkers as dwarf frogs is why I think my partner will like the GH models. For the angry hermit crabs, a metallic pearl effect would be interesting, but potentially complicated.

I'm looking for some inspirations and armored whelks I was thinking thake inspiration from "Monster hunter game". The frenzy from street sharks TV show. However, I have to think about the colours. Tyranid armies is also a good option to take inspiration from it.

primer, spray base them blue, slap on some dark greenish shader, layer on some bright teal and drybrush with bright green. yarazi a little brighter and greener, speckled crawlers a little darker blue. scales on karkinoi and whelks bone-coloured and spaces in between segments red-ish. don't have a clue wether it'll work and look nice or not, but that's what i'm gonna try. ^^
