I just finished 800 points of the studio Tyranid army. They are dubbed the "Mesa Nids". After seeing them together as a group against the mesa terrain it became apparent that was their habitat.
See pics here.
These are L3 and this is on the menu if you want your Tyranids painted this way.
As an alternate color scheme I recommend "Rust Nids" a Khaki carapace with colored talons and claws (ruddy orange or sombre grey).
Here's what I have so far:
1x Trygon Prime
3x Hive Guard
Here's what still has to be painting:
1x Doom of Malan'Tai
2x Seed Pod conversions
