Dang, that looks beautiful, man! may I ask, however, why you've got colored stripes on the armor? But anyway, they look great, have some rep!

Nice! I like them a lot. I do have a few costructive suggestions though.

1) User thinner hightlights (especially on the slaanesh boys) and maybe touch up the slaany symbol on the Srg.

2) I'd paint the fatuiges and the armour a different colour, not necessarily a very different colour (brown fatigues perhaps) but at the moment the scheme all seems to merge into one and i think it takes away from it somewhat.

3) Finish off your metal areas (gun stocks and tops, the flamer tank ect) because as it is they look like they are wtill WIP.


I think if you do that then they will look really nice and just pop that bit more

Good work with the greestuff and I like the colour combination. A couple of quick suggestions;

1) Clean your mould lines! It doesn't matter how nice your paint job is, if you don't clean off the mould lines everyone's eye will be drawn to that.

2) Drill out your gun barrels. This little attention to detail adds a lot to the finished product.

Keep up the good work and keep us posted on your progress

Always cool to see more traitor guard. Your doing a swell job.

Nice work, I like the Chaos symbols as well and they really stand out. Looking forward to seeing the Khorne and Nurgle ones.

cheers for the advice guys, i will try and see to it that i touch them up

i'm am still thinking of a symbol for the army and some sort of background

i am going to save up for the cadian battleforce as i will be needing all the models in it anyway so the khorne and nurgle squad may be a while unless i choose to use the catchan models in which case the khorne squad will be up next

cheers edd
