For your first paint job there some good models.

the slits in the legs (like the back of the knee) i think would be better being black with grey it will help tell apart the model as well.

When it comes to painting purity seals i undercoat them black paint them white then bleached bone and then highlight on one side skull white.

well a way to base that's easy and looks pretty good, paint the base some borwn colour, like snikebite leather, put P.V.A glue on it, dip it in sand shake it off (to remove excess) then repeat if areas wern't covered but only P.V.A the parts that were missed. Once that is dry get the P.V.A glue again and put patchs on, and dip the base into static grass this will give you a good and simple base for your models.

How ironic it is that as fast as we spread progress and hope throughout the galaxy, the Tyranids spread death and despair. Only united can we hope to stand against them.

I would recommend painting the bases after you glue the sand to them. That way the paint helps hold the sand in place.

i gotta say for you first models they are very good, and basing wise it depends how you want it, if your going with rubble/ground that you would need to paint its best to put the stuff your going to use for the base and glue it on before you basecoat, if your doing sand or grass or something you can usually do that after you paint the model

little tip with the eyes, paint the eye first, and then paint around them with the armour colour, it tidies them up alot, and its easier to control the brush.

my best suggestion is to get the gw washes.

the skin on the tactical sergent will look awsome, the red will also look awsome, and i can't say that the green needs anything.

good on ya mate, and don't worry about the guys on heresy bullying you or making fun of you, we are all a supportive bunch, well, i suppose you could call heresy the bra of warhammer.......

Hey, we wouldn't diss your painting! I don't know about everybody else here, but my first model looks like I poured a pot of green and a pot of yellow over it, then splashed on some mettalics These are fantastic for a first try, and that highlighting is actually quite good! I can't highlight that well, but don't tell anyone....

Project logs:
The Black Wolves (SM) - List Written
Ultramarines Chapter (yes, I said chapter) - Test model painted
7th Annihilators (SM) - Nearly finished (no log)

About basing. The best way I have found to do the base after the model (with lots of experiance) is thus:
-Glue sand onto base with white glue
-In a plastic cup mix two parts white glue, one part water, and a bunch of your base color paint.
-Paint this over the sand, allow alot of time to dry as it will re-wet the white glue. This takes care of shading.
-Use a controlled, almost drybush to highlight. The gw medium drybrush works well. Just put some paint on the brush and drag across sand.
-Add some static grass spots.
Since you are doing AoBR, this will look good on both orks and marines. Sort of an 'anyhwere' battle motif. For sand I recommend using two different sizes, a larger one and a smaller one, to represent dirt and rocks. Check out a local hobby/model train shop for Woodland Scenics material, they offer a product called Ballast in many grain sizes that works wonderfully.
