Hey man. Neat work on those minis.
Beside the awkward blue/red pairing i think that you just need to use some washes to add deepness to the models. as they stand, they seems unfinished, imo. The base alone is never enough :good:

dipping is easy, dipping is fast, but not stronger.
Once you have gone trough the way of dipping, there is no coming back!

well, red and blue... without entering in specific color theory and fashion suggestions, a "shiny" blue and red should never be used togheter since they "conflict" with each other. Moreover they are primary colours and primary colours give us steady contrast when paired. not always this is a good thing. Usually you'll want to mix a "neutral"colour in between or to shade away some of the red/blue shiny-est part. A wash could help you greatly.
To put it short it's just a brain input shortcut, they are conflictuous colours, hence the reason i said "awkward". For example, a darker tone of red wouldn't have been so awkward :)

depends on the look you want to give them. You could just take the blue and red wash, darken it a bit with purple / sepia (please try it out before applying to models!) or just put the washes natural to keep the same look with just an added shade.
Otherwise you could go for agrax earthshade and darken them sensibly, toning down the colour. They will become more "rugged" and battleworn, not bright at all.
It depends on you. maybe take 3-4 models you despise and try various solutions on them :)
