Very inspiring stuff, Tossidin! The yellow you've achieved suits imperial guards very well. In fact, I like it so much it put some ideas in my head about my own guard detachments for my Space Marines (damn you!!!). It also looks more promising to paint yellow with the new Citadel Colours (which I recently ordered but haven't received yet) so you might see me try it out soon (I'll be sure to point people here if I do).

For me, the one thing that lets the bases down aren't the choices of colour on them - rather the fact that the shapes on them doesn't convey the feel of mud. I don't have any good tips on how to achieve that effect that I've tried mysel but I would try something like if I was going to do it this.
