Ah thought it might be that, I imagine that was a fairly nervous job!

Looks at the 5 VV and 3 Scout Bikers and feels very embarrassed.

just a quick update, my cams gone up the creek so need to get a new one, so no pics at moment, ive got the landraider all finished now , also took a little side project on for my imperial fists and got hold of a contemptor dreadnought with lascannons and conversion beam, so thats all painted and based up.
as im looking to push this force up to apoc size ive got my hands on some imperial guard to help out they include a command squad, 7 10 man squads each with a vox, special weapon and Sargent and 2 russ battle tanks and a sential armoured, hoping to get more of these soon and some transports for the guardsmen.

Those are some big pictures

The yellow looks fantastic and the blue OSL works really nicely with the yellow.

Advice wise I would put some more depth into the reds - they look very flat compared to the rest of the model. A few more highlights and washes should do the trick. The metallics on the raider also look a bit too clean compared to the bottom.

Looking forward to seeing your sternguards!

Impressive works as always. I will say though that you seem to be going a tad overboard with the OSL, especially on the eyes of the termies. There seems to be light were there wouldn't be light in reality, like above the brow ridge of the helmets and the front facing of the light housings on the LR. The very best examples of OSL do just that, only put the light exactly were it should be.
