They're looking tidy.
But I would say you need to give them a shade and highlight before you add the weathering. This would give you more contrast and make them pop.
if you add a bit of yellow to the green and do some edge highlights then a bit of white to that and do the most raised. Then give a glaze of green to tie them back together.
The black , I would highlight with caliban green or a grey and then a wash of nuln oil.
Your weathering is looking good.
Hope it helps.

Thanks for the tips guys.

Yeah I was thinking of doing some highlighting/washing or dipping. But its a matter of how much time I want to spend on each model, vs getting this 15k~ worth of salamanders painted.. buying is the easiest part of the hobby :laugh:

The paint scheme is from Imperial Armor 10, with my own twist on it. The Army is a apocalypse sized siege assault army list.

Along with 43 more Marines with siege mantles next to come in the project is this. On this one, I may try a fast dry brush highlight to get a bit more depth without a whole lot of more time spend.


Also, I picked up enough of these assault shield to cover all 5 land raiders. Thoughts on them?

Wouldn't you maybe benefit from getting an airbrush to do quicker coats and highlights? (If you haven't already got one) I agree with the guys above that it currently looks a little flat. Those assault shields are brilliant by the way, where did you get those?
