I just pushed out 28 Termies, 16 Hormies and 4 Ripper Swarmies! though i'd add the ie just to keep the theme going xD
Anyways! Constructive critisism is appreciated, but only if its for improvements! because last time i asked for contstructive critisism and all i got was "WOW YOU FRIKING SUCK YA' DIPSIT!" so please only good criticism.... =_= please im begging you.... i know by saying this i'm gonna get a bunch of people saying that....
I know many of this pics aren't good it just my camera, it really makes them look 10x's worse xD...... this camera does no justice for them :3

The Gold doesn't mix well with the blue, light white or grey might do better.

I think its a nice hint at E A Poe´s "The gold bug". Alas, such subtle wit is lost on most kids these days

Let me enlighten you a bit...I can understand why you may be put off by CC, some people really don't know how to lay it down without being blunt. Unfortunately,asking for complements only wont help you improve in some cases, complements are like those golden star stickers we all used to find right next to our good grades as kids...it takes practice to get those

Moving on, it looks like you are on the right track like most have already said, you could paint the carapace from vermin brown, then bleached bone over it, and a good wash of Devlan mud. The skin can be washed with assurmen blue, as it would give it more depth, something which is needed here.

Give it a go and post some pictures, and remember...practise makes perfect

I'd just like to say if you don't want Criticism don't post on Dakka, but I'd just suggest changing the colours slightly.

I played nids for a while, I was terrible at getting that many bugs painted.

You might want to try taking pictures of a few at a time with some better lighting and a solid back ground (though im not really one to talk, my pictures are pretty bad). I would suggest painting the rim of the bases black. A light blue dry brush, and a wash of some kind, a dark blue or dark brown wash.

Its looking good so far, keep up the good work =)

Everyone needs critisisim, without it you can't Learn and while it may seem harsh at first it's needed to become better.

Please do not edge your bases the same colour as your minis. This is a Bad Idea.

For advice - you might want to pick the weapon symbiotes out in a different colour. Those termagants would look a lot better and a lot more "finished" if the devourers were a different colour, for example.

Did you know? The Reach belongs to the Forsworn.

The devourers are a different color... its really hard to see cause of the camera. They are heather blue, while the flesh is crystal blue.
and i really like my blue bases :3
