some very nice work you've got there, i like it a lot. and i like it even more because you feel quite free to play with the background to come up with new concepts (like Sanguinius' armour).
i particularly like the 'dark eldar' warrior, i don't think it looks too fantasy (inspite of the lack of weapons), to me its near a perfect representation of a darker more sinister version of the craftworld eldar (i'm not too keen on his trophy rack though).
my only real criticism would be that Sanguinius' shoulder pads appear vastly over proportioned. i realise that SM shoulderpas look better when they are proportionally larger than the miniatures shoulderpads, but those seem a little ridiculous. looks like he'd find it difficult to move, like a badguy from power rangers. everything else about the pic is excellent though.
I strive for realism in my images, and though that doesn't mean "it has to be possible in our current time", it means that there has to be justification for things to work.
I justify larger shoulderpads of SM's and Sanguinius with the notion from fluff on the amour: It is said to be "auto-reactive" and move by a small servo-engine. So whereas you think it is too large pads, based upon not being able to move them, I see bulky protection that moves through machinery included in the armour.
Pint taken though, and Client is King so I would (and do) take the clients wishes in when I make paintings. ;)o
