took me a few armies of practice to get where im at(decent, but not tabletop) took me a while to figure out paint shouldnt come strait from the pot. for mixing colors a drop of flow improver and a drop of drying retarder helps a lot. painting thick kills detail. I hate doing eyes and skin tone. just takes practice and patience.

I plan on keeping it simple for me I'm going to a lot of ink dipping. Since tyranids don't have Armor or clothe . Essentially they are naked. I don't know why people feel the need to paint their carapace a divergent color from the rest of them. Ants are typically all one color and to a degree cockroaches. I intend to do like a purple slimy type ink over a glossy black base. After that I may dry brush the claws not sure yet. I'm basing my look off of HR Giger's aliens. They are all this sort of purple slimy black. With a slight hint of silver around the claws and teeth

Since you're already playing tabletop games, here's more stuff you can buy!

I know it's not warhammer, but, it's pretty awesome. Plus, no serious painting required!

Do what you said and learn how to edge highlight them. They should look pretty pimp like that.

edging with 'Nids makes them look amazing. dont forget to base them, easy enough with elmers glue thin and sand poured on it. Let it dry and then paint,

We really didn't play an actual game. Did a whole bunch of mini battles to test out strategies against different units and went over the rules we weren't sure of.
