Yeah... I'd grey it up a bit. If you look at the newer artwork (which, IMO, is much more impressive than the old pale green) they're almost a normal grey, with only hints of the green. I'd try something like a 50% black 30% grey 20% green mix as the basecoat and work from there.

as much as i hate to be pernickity, what marks of armour are they? if the one on the left is meant to be mark 6, then its post heresy, and has mark 8 legs.

if the one on the right is mark 5, then the kneepads and helmet are wrong.

i think.

otherwise, the paintjob is good, but inking like that just gives a dirty quality. watch the areas you ink and look to the recesses.

Sons of Horus is right, the Sons' armour is grey--with hints--of green.

The guy on the far left looks the best, with the armour being seperated by the greenish color.

Good job, eisenhorn.

PS-How did you do those parts where the armour plates meet? Carefully makes lines at the spots with a well tipped brush?
