I'll be honest, they both look rather bland and from far away they would almost look unpainted or just base coated. This isn't to criticize your paint job, which looks great. I think it really just needs more highlight, like a contrasting color to accent more of the model.

I can see that the left/darker one does look unpainted. Shadow Grey is kind of sprue color. But all I did after painting was wash coat. I still plan to highlight/drybrush in such a way to make them look frozen as they come from an ice world. The silver and black parts will look best this way I feel, hence why I wanted better armoured ones to be silver. Aside from seeming somewhat dull, I thought the darker paint scheme might work for Tau Stealth Suits.
