Nice!! Liking them. Very good blade. Maybe some more wash on the firearms' metal parts? The commanders cybernetic arm has a well balanced amount for example, imo.

thanks everyone :)

[email protected] ye ive been thinking they look to neat, maybe some charring on the nozzles of the flamers/launchers aswell. but then i might force myself to do weathering on all of their boots/lower trousers so they look battleworn, and just as i thought id finished them :(

[email protected] ye....(fevered thinking....ah)he used to wield a heavy flamer, which he got his nice case of flamer tan, untill it overheated and he was forced to use it as an improvised demo charge, taking out a Nob mob in the process, which burned off his hair and mangled his left ear :)

[i think that went rather well for a spot of on-the-cuff fluff making :) might do one for all the of the CCS and maybe the vet squad commanders :)]

Dermon [email protected] ye, i couldnt get anything else that wasnt really expensive, and i hadnt got the codex when i made them :(

Well, imho, they're finished when YOU say they are :)
And hey, boots and trousers look fine. For me it was not so much about any weathering effect, as about the weapons being very shiny and reflecting a lot of light. But I am pretty lazy myself, once I think a model is finished. That's why my HQ Librarian looks like he has blue lipstick.
Which btw goes wonderfully with Ultramarine power armour.

Great looking army you have there...looks awesome.
And yea, in the end the only person you need to satisfy as to whether or not your models are at an acceptable standard - is yourself.

So far, these are turning out great with some very simple techniques- do you have any tanks we might have the good fortune of seeing sometime?

Nice work on these guys. Particularly the powersword and the banner. They will be a good looking force when finished. I saw the comments by the others regarding the grenade launchers. Don't despair, i have about 15 grenade launcher troopers that almost never get used.
