That's kind of you to say @Tyriks although I disagree! Your Warp Hunters are really well painted!

Starting to think I may strip them and start again with the same or a similar scheme as (and I'm not trying to sound big headed at all) I think my painting has got better in the last couple of years since these were started and my hand a lot steadier.

Thanks for all the input all, really appreciate it!

Tyriks Yeah, that's definitely a better picture for demonstrating it. Looks very nice. Keep it up! Also, I agree with @Battman that a tactical marine would be nice!

Battman Ok that does look better didn't pick the green/black sections looked like all that dark angels color thought it was just due to the light. But now i see what your trying to achive, it works just could do with better photos (but don't all our models). Keep it up how about showing us the scheme on a standard marine? Terminators are difficult to pick schemes for because of the variant armor style.

Gorthol Thanks for the feedback @DaisyDuke I think I'm going to strip them and start over, they were started around 3 years ago and dug them out recently, think they need a makeover!

Here's a couple of my (unfinished) converted First Captain:

DaisyDuke I would do something with the accent colours.
You need to pick one, blue purple and yellow is to many.
Personally I think you should lose the blue and go for purple on the seals, and then you need more yellow on the shield. Try painting it all yellow over a white or grey base coat, then wash with sepia or brown for shade, then highlight the edges. You should get a better gradient of colour. You can use the same technique for the bone cloth just highlight with bone then extreme with white. For bone colour or yellow I use a watered down mix of whatever snakebite leather is called now for the shade. Try 60/40 water to paint and then adjust your ratio to taste.
Hope it helps

Hi @Tyriks

Thanks for the feedback!

I think the yellow offsets the darkness somewhat when you see it 'in the flesh' so to speak, I didn't choose the best model for a picture in hindsight; I'll try get some more pics up for you after work and see what you think of the yellow, as always i'll appreciate your honesty!

Gorthol Hi @Battman thanks for the feedback!

Not sure if the pic conveys but the arms/tops of legs/bottom of midriff are black and the rest DA green, I wanted to make them obviously recognisable as a DA successor but keep them fairly different.

I'm still undecided on the casings; I'm thinking black or possibly a deep purple as I've used purple for some details.

I think you can see the differences between the standard DA colours and my chosen colours on a standard marine more than a terminator, I'll try get some more pictures up after work today!
