Nice stuff, but definitely wash some more! There are a few places (like the head on the biker champ), that need a tad more defining (in my opinion of course :) ). Not the metal though, that looks good :) .

Also, another couple of points - I can see a few bits where you've gone over a bit with the silver, I would cover these up, because the do detract from a good paintjob. One last thing, do you water down your paints? You've done a good job, but lots of thin layers will help you get the layer of colour.

Good job on starting the legion though! +Rep!!

thanks marneus! no, i don't water them down first. The biker champs head? oh lol i forgot to paint the eyebrows and the eyes, so thats getting touched up.
It's not so much painting the eyebrows, it's similar to this: http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/c...oryId=&section=&pIndex=0&aId=6200016a&start=1 (it's the same principles on smaller models).

What I mean is water down some of the flesh colour you're using, paint a layer on, wash it, paint a layer (leaving some wash in the recesses), wash it, and do this until it's really defined. Thats what I do anywho.

But I would definitely reccomend watering down your paints, once you get good at that, highlights and that sort of stuff will seem a lot easier, and you might eventually want to try more techniques, at least thats how I progressed :D

EDIT*

In fact, here is a couple of really great tutorials;

One thing I would definitely advise would be to water the paints down a little to get more of a smooth coverage it will take a couple of layers but trust me it looks so much better.
also just noticed the mould lines on the biker and termie, dont forget to scrape them off carefully to make your minis look better.

But overall good job keep it coming.
