Hmm. Something looks off to me but I'm not quite sure what it is.

I liking the axe and the fusion pistol, and that the headdress isn't too over the top.

There seems to be something amiss with the torso head join, at least that's where I think it is. The torso seems too large or maybe the head is either a little to small or with the collar is sitting up too high.

I'll think about it.

There is a bit of blue putty beneath the head, so it's sitting slightly higher than it would normally.

Like how that looks. Great start for this guy. Looking forward to seeing all that blue cleaned up.

Thanks! It looks horrible with all the blue, but I'm thinking about painting all the pieces separately. Or at least torso separate from legs separate from juggernaut.

With models like this I tend to assemble the head, torso, and legs as a unit. That gives a substantial piece to work with but with minimal occlusion from other parts of the model. The assemble arms, rider, steed, etc.

For some reason GW has the saddle/pelvis attached to the juggernaut's back with each leg separate. Sorta frustrating, but not a big deal. I plan on at least basecoating with an airbrush so things won't be too difficult.

I'm refining how I want these guys to look.

I like that the infernus pistols have a variant in each hand. This way I can have one of each per squad.

Out of 18, 6 will be Biker Champs, 10 will be meltagunners, and 2 will have flamers (from Ashen Circle kit).

Here's my work on the first meltagunner:

I think you need new heads. Those marine heads just look too small on those bodies.
Mind taking a few photos further away? I'm trying to envision how these guys look on the table and if it would still be as distracting.

I think the head works.
With the gorget on the armor it looks rather tight and possibly hard for the marine to move his head, but the whole thing looks good.

The heads are essentially the same size as the stock versions. I can try to raise the head a little. As for the realism of not being able to turn his head it has been bothering me but I think that's something I may just have to accept.
