cool, the only thing I've got to say is that the models look kinda muted and could use some more red, otherwise they look good

Red is not an easy colour to paint but I find that inks can really help a lot.

What I do is exadurate highlight the modelfrom a bit darkr to a bit lighter than you would when finished, then put orange ink over the light areas and chestnut ink over the shadows. The ink (which you should still thin down of course) will smoothe out some of the extremes of the highlights. I don't use red ink at all because it's kind of pink. I'm pretty happy with the result on the sisters minis I'm currently working on.

Edited to remove pics. No reason to fill your WIP with my stuff

I actually like the colouring on them myself. All you really need is some contrasting colour to make them pop and perhaps to highlight up the gold a bit more to separate the red out more clearly and you are set. Nice work Ri!

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

i think its just the camera then.. they look fine here but probably when i highlight and paint other details like eyes pipes skulls horns and whatnot it will stand out more

anyway on other news i assembled 5 raptors a khorne lord 2 flesh hounds and 5 bloodletters

and on the bad note...
cats are bad for daemon princes...... knocked him of the table in my room and broke him apart in like 7 pieces... dammed cat

Pin him back together. My daemon prince is damn near indistructable. Although i cant say the same for his sword.
