Ok... I feel like the official forum guy for my friends... Another one of my buds (Mr. Dark Angel) is gonna be starting up a nid army when he gets enough capital, however, he cannot think of a cool colour scheme (actually he can but I say he needs a second opinion) He is the painter in our group so he is rather good with all that fancy paint stuff so you can suggest anything...
What he's looking at is based on the Aliens series... He wants a dark menacing army but he doesn't want pure black, as that is very boring. Also he does not want any bland coloured armies like the ones the tyranids have now...
Remember, any suggestions will be fine, though people who give stupid suggestions will not be shot... maybe beaten a little... but not shot ;D

I did a really simple black and purple color scheme, always thought it looked good on Nids.
if he is going for an aliens look then black and silver is the way to go, perhaps with some swirly dark brown tones along the carapace, just look at a bunch of pictures of bugs and beetles and spiders and what not.
GS over the eyes, spray black, slight highlights with grey and go overkill with the gloss varnish. Check out the Buglands site, I think there's an Aliens themed army on there. If not my mates over at The Tyranid Hive would be more than willing to help!
