Your paint scheme is very beautiful. I've always found that black and golden yellow to be an excellent match and it's really classy on Tyranids. I can't wait to see how they will look with winter bases instead of just standing on asphalt. :P

For someone who claims to not be a brillant painter, I feel your Soul Grinder is very beautiful. The pale blue flesh and the rusty legs are really amazing.

Welcome and Yay Nids, really like the colour scheme you have it is very striking.

I really like the paint job on the soul grinder as well, one part that is bothering me though is where the flesh meets the rusty legs. You have very weathered legs and then a very clean and crisp flesh which I think the contrasting colour makes it stand out and the transition where the two meet more obvious.

Not saying it is what needs to be down but I wonder if a transition or an effect where the rust has gone over a bit of flesh will help blend this a bit more. Kind of like when rust gets wet it seems to stain the area around it.

Just my 2 cents
