Looking good so far Loyalist. The bases are turning out very nicely. It is amazing what you can do with some spare plasticard and a hobby knife. I like the grey on red, my only quibble is that the red almost looks pink in the photo. I am going to attribute that to photo translation issues. I would also try to get some shading in the recesses of the fabric, maybe a Badab wash prior to dry brushing just to make things more defined.
Critiques aside I really do like the scheme and I think that you are off to a great re-start.
