Just finished painting a commission for Space Hulk Tyranids. They are painted in a black and white colour scheme with a bit of colour added by the help of ultramarine helmets.
Those models are super good looking, the poses are great and the bases are very scenic. The only downfall is a lack of detail on the helmets and some other areas of the models, which makes painting trickier and I was forced to create detail by freehand. So it definitely took longer to paint those as suppose to usual genestealers. What do you guys think?

How do you achieve that really great white color? Any time I paint white its so flat looking...

Great job!

Awesome! I love seeing Nids that actually have almost insectoid schemes rather than just contrasting colours!

Thanks! I have used insects as inspiration when I initially developed this colour scheme a few years back. For the skin the white is airbrushed in fine layers over olive drab base coat as a zenithal highlight (45 degree angle). Just keep it light and maybe add a few washes and it should result in a more dimensional look.

So you painted the back after the airbrushing then?

Yep, I painted the black after getting the skin to the right tone.

Nice work on the geneatealers and broodlord. An oversight however the ultramarines veterans wear white helmets not blue. A sergeants helmet would be red with white. Maybe a librarians terminator helmet would be blue, or a captain.
