so of the 6 colors you have you have 3 washes???
thats a bit out of perspective...

for an easy nid army, you 2 base colors... one for the bony carapace, one for the fleshy bits...

then you need a wash for the flesy bits, and a highlight for the bony carapace...

example:

a green skin with a blue carapace

first you paint the fleshy bits snot green, then you wash that with the thraka green. then drybrush the snotgreen over the flesy bits again so the raised parts look lighter. then you carefully paint the carapace ultramarine blue or hawk turquoise which you highlight by feathering ice blue on the lower edges of the carapace...

thats i think the easiest way to paint nids

oh and use white for primer... i found that black primer is good, but that white is much better for basically everything...
