Pretty nice work so far.
I'm not sure about doing dark with dark, the mini will lack contrast. But that's just me trying to imagine it in my head. Maybe try it out on a test mini first and see what you think of it or post it up here for a more critical opinion.
Either way good luck and keep up the good work!

That mugan ra is very impressive. I like the dirtyness of the bone, it makes him look... evil. And I like evil. The autarch looks like an amazing model and the paint job is good, although I think it has too many different colors. Id replace all the silver on the model with black and brighten up the red a bit, but its your choice really.

+rep for the mugan ra

not bad man! one suggestion revolves around your gems on the models. You have the right idea, but paint the white dot on the dark part of the gem to create a point of "light insertion". The white is the pin prick of light, the darker shade is the gem, then the lighter part is the light comming out after being disseminated by the gem... I'd recommend thinning out your paints too, your basecoats look thick and streaky!
