well i got my sternguard today. dont like the weight of the finecast models they feel flimsy.
.
and here is the vanguard. i got them in a trade so they have been primed but never painted.

does anyone think it a good idea to remove the metal tab for the slota base and pin them to a resin base.all suggestions and comments are welcomed.
time to start on the guards.

Looking good mate! Pics are a little blurry, but from what i can see you have the colour scheme down pretty well. I hope you don't mind if i make a few small suggestions

The gold is a small bit flat, i think if you go for a 2:1 mix of Gold and Scorched brown, followed by a wash of gryphonne sepia and then a drybrush of shining gold over the top. This helps keep the gold from distracting from the rest of the model by dulling down the shininess a small bit

The only other thing is that maybe you should water your paint down just a small bit, it is almost perfect in consistency, but i think a drop of water would do a world of good.

Have some rep for your work

Wait, someone straight up took your minis? You know who it is? Can't you grab a baseball bat and go retrieve them or something?

Sorry to hear that mate, any chance you can get them back? I like the idea for the new project (storm lords ftw) but surely some redemption is in order if some asshole stole your stuff.

Do you mean to say that your minis have been stolen?
