Lookin good, my only comment would be that the black looks a little flat to me. I would reccomend a grey or dark blue highlight on the edges to give it a little depth.

Death Company, how nice :victory:
The Dread look very neat. Are You going to anything further to the black parts ? Because I have had some issues whith that and i am looking for some inspiration for treating black.
And looking forward to see the DC getting done.

I've used a mix of Chaos black and Codex Grey 3:1 to paint all the flat armor plates. Then, highlight the upper (facing the sun) edges with 1:1. A very nice touch is to use brightly colored hoses, wires, and cables. It really shows up nicely against the black.

I've also tried just using straight black on everything, then highlighting with shadow grey. It looked okay, but not very realistic, more like it was outlined.

Try a very light drybrushing of Chaos black and codex grey over all the black areas. Experiment on a test mini first to see the effect and if it's something you would like.

Otherwise, looking good so far.
