@Dave T Hobbit I couldn't agree more. Last night I just couldn't help putting them under the knife again... But I got rid of all that heavy moss and painted battle damageinstead heres a look.
The first couple shots show the updates to Leviticus and their battle damage. I stripped the moss totally off and to be honest it popped right off, along with the other "grime underneath" once the old paint popped up though it was pretty much down to the bare model, save a few shoulder pads.
Anyway then there's a couple shots to show you how the squad looks a lot more cohesive now that that nasty moss is gone.

Also if you see the picture of the shoulder pads with the cloth hanging (I'm not sure what its called anyone care to enlighten me) I was planning on trying to add the same effect to some of the models with greenstuff perhaps. If anyone maybe has a link to a tutorial on doing that that would be helpful.

Anyways still working on getting those next models in. More later. Thanks

Not sure if I love the moss covered look, but it's not too distracting and is well done. Really like the colour scheme in general. My only advice would be to drill your barrels out - only takes 5 minutes and will adds a lot to the models for not much effort.
so I took ur advice and hollowed out those barrels. And rebased delta with snowy bases.

Looking good. You seem to have a very clear white in those pictures, it's a good clean paint job.

Well, while I like how they look and so, I think you may have used a bit much white on the armour for them being "Ultramariney", if you know what I mean. After all, aren't the regular smurfs just blue, with a particular colour on the shoulder pads line?

your right about that, technically they're right side shoulders should be blue if we're getting technical, but if we're getting technical, I believe there aren't any regular tactical squads in first company according to gw its just like 93 sternguard\vanguard and some hq I believe. So I figured altering the pad wouldn't be too drastic (hopefully its obvious they are Smurfs), but at the same time a nice change from the very generic (and boring) ALL blue power armor. But ya your right.

@torealis I'm dedicating this guy to your "all marines look puny to me" statement. Haha made me give it my best shot. Anyway I don't usually sculpt at all, but this is probably MY best work yet... Let me know what you think. Thanks for the support bro.

& Thanks everybody for being awesome!
