The skin or whatever, it's actually charcoal black, looks very very very dark bluish when contrasted in real life, had poor lighting for the photos

haha gotcha, was going to say it was too much black for me. This is my current favorite Tyranid color scheme

This scheme looks like it needs another color. While the blue is tastefully applied, it is a little bland over straight black. On the other hand, it may be that a simple dry-brushing of the black will make it look more dynamic, thus removing the need for another color.

can you tell what colors they are by name?

Scab Red, etc, I'm slightly colorblind and can't make them out

*Drools* I would LOVE to be able to paint HALF that well. . . would be so amazing. . . I like the OP paint idea I am going to try it but with green and whites to give it that camouflage look. I will test it out!

I wish I could, that paint scheme almost made me change my mind and go Nids instead of CSM. I'm sure I can take the picture to my friend n he'll figure it out

Tyranids, imo, seem to look the most awesome with two strong contrasting colours. I'd suggest using yellow, or white instead of what appears to be the metallic colour on them.
