stone crusher carnifex

ok so this is the first tyranid model i ever painted, personally idt it came out to bad. i started with white primer, base coated the carapace black, then went to a coat of necron abyss, drybrushed enchanted blue on carapace, then ice blue highlight. the exoskeleton is (im pretty sure) 1 part ice blue and 3 parts water. the talons and tusks are black.

Nice,

I’m looking at getting a few of these types of Carnifexs’ myself, but cant decided if just to get the RAM carapace or go for the crusher claws as well.

The light blue on the body gives him a very nice ice look, good job :)

This is what happens if you use white primer, you've got to basecoat everything. If you don't do that, you will see white in the recesses, which I see at your carnifex.
I think the colours work very well but I'm not a fan of the black tusks and scythes.

A Luna's right, if you prime with white you have to paint every single spot. Priming with white makes painting a little easier, but it also takes more time to get to a good result. (always depending on what you're painting of course).

Keep it up and keep practising.
Kind Regards,
