Very impressive freehand work, though i would be tempted to redo the moon, the black on bone makes it look a lot more cartoony than the earth, browns might give a subtler shade definition for the craters.
in a fluff note, earth int he 41st millenium has no oceans..they were burned off even before the horus heresy.


Great skin tones and a nice variety of hair colours, this'll really draw eople to look at your army.





Looks like you've got your work cut out, looking forwards to seeing this lot get completed.


On a personal note i would be tempted to add some trophies or pieces of armour to the bases, i always find grey bases never look complete and always seem to make the colours on a model look a lot more dull then they really are. a couple of points of interest from som dead grass or a smashed hemet will really make them look more complete.

NIce work so far and with a tricky colour scheme to master. Hope to see more updates soon.

Also it might be worth asking a mod to move this into the project logs board.

I am at work currently so I canít see any of the pics. But as soon as I get home I am looking forward to seeing these. I too have a large Imperial Fists army, and am hoping to learn something new since all the comments so far a positive.

Impressive work so far. Liking your skin tones and the very even and smooth yellow. I will agree with Grimzag though. The moon on the dozer blade looks like a chocolate chip cookie.(Not that there's anything wrong with choc chip cookies. Quite the opposite, in fact)
