Default New IG colour scheme need C&C

Hey people.. I'm starting a new colour scheme.. black and white (how original! )
hour.. I will fix up the gray highlights now that I can see them in daylight..

I would love to hear your C&C (Note i'm fixing ALL the black parts)
P.S I've never worked with white and its a mofo to use!





I'm trying to make a 'glowy effect' any ideas on how to make it look better?

Snipers! Black is quite hard to paint when its nighttime.. So ill fix the highlights


What do ya think?
PROST!

Looking good, about the glowy effect, the way to do that, is to use washes rather than just paint it on, basically using a really watered down wash to start with, and adding gradually less water into the mix, and becoming more concentrated around whatever is glowing

Looks good. I just finished a test mini for my space marine army which is going to be white and gold. Never used white much before but you are right it is a mofo to get right.
But you seemed to have done a good job. I also have trouble highlighting black, but if you can get that right this army will look great.

nice job, concidering you've never used white. nice and clean. if you add more water to your paints and layer a bit more, you may find it will be flater and take the streaks out. top marks so far tho.

I like them, very contrasting and eye catching. They will look very nice as a complete army. Well done!

I quite like it. The fatigues are a good colour and don't take away from the armour, without being too dark. Nice work
