Hive Fleet Scorpius Paint Scheme

Here is my Step-by-Step process for painting my Tyranids, which I have dubbed Hive Fleet Scorpius. Unless otherwise noted all paint colors are Citadel brand.
  1. Spray with Army Painter Necrotic Flesh spray primer. This matches the Citadel paint color Rotting Flesh.
  2. Apply Thraka Green wash to all skin areas. 
  3. Paint the carapace areas with the following paint colors.
    1. Base coat with Orkhide Shade foundation paint.
    2. Apply Dark Angels Green to entire carapace.
    3. Highlight carapace with 50/50 Dark Angels Green and Snot Green.
    4. Highlight carapace with Snot Green.
    5. If there are any especially long spikes or crests on the carapace, highlight with 50/50 Snot Green and Scorpion Green.
  4. Paint all claws, talons and teeth with Bleached Bone.
  5. Paint remaining details with Scorpion Green or Golden Yellow.
