I highly recommend cleaning up any mold lines on the models as much as possible before you paint them. it will help with realism later, especially if you apply a wash you your models. washes really bring out mold lines (in a bad way) if you have not carefully filed/cut them off the model.

I'm not advanced enough to use washes yet. It's going to be all I can do to paint them and not make them look stupid. But I will certainly be giving them a once over prior to slapping some paint on them.

good luck dude, if you are new to painting i would reccomend army painter silver spray paint and then a black wash with GW wash, its easy and the result will be great.
I would aslo recomend making the bases stand out from the silver GK with some grass ect.

A small update. It's taking longer than I would like simply because my job sucks my will to do much more than sleep. But this is my Justicar. I think he turned out well considering he's my first painted unit ever. Thoughts?

It looks pretty good, need to drill the barrel of the storm bolter out so it looks more real, not like it has a cover over it. You could do some writing on the book, it's really just some very thin black squiggly lines, like when you look at a book from a long ways away. Good start though.

Yeah, I haven't bought the drill yet, just one of many things I have yet to do. I'm waiting until I get my bone colored paint before I finish it off and put the scribbles on the books. But I appreciate the comments ^_^

A very quick addition (I'm getting faster with my painting!) to the finished pile is my Standard Bearer. Hope you like him.

This looks solid as a basecoat, but I would add a bit of shading to make the metallics less "flat".

Luckily for you, today is the day GW releases their new shades and glazes. If would advice just 2 things in that range, it would be the black shade called "nuln oil" and the blue glaze (just to give the armor a blue-ish tint) called "guilliman blue". That's to make the silver colour pop a bit more.

You might also want to look into sepia wash for the purity seals and robes.

PS: washes are not for advanced painters only. In fact, the GW washes are very, very userfriendly and nearly failproof. Washes are easy, highlighting is a lot harder.
