very nice, the base is very cool. I like the blue and will wnat ot see what you do with the rest.

One tip though, is the head done? If so i suggest getting a slightly thinned down fortress grey and painting some stubble onto his head. If you take a small drybrush, or one with slighlty stiff bristles, and then will a small ammout of paint gently dapple, stubble, what ever the top of his head and build up a couple of light layers where his hair would it'll be perfect.

Would show you a pic of what i mean but cameras not playing ball.

Its a little thing i often do to bare heads and it actually does make a massive difference.

try it in a test model 1st i'd say to see what you think and get it right.

I'll throw in a couple names...

Knights of Twilight
Aurora Angels

(I get kind of a cosmic/twilight feel from the lighter blue color scheme)

And great base

i think i'm going to stick with knights of twilight. The teal is just too harsh on the eyes so he's going to be red now.
@Skcuzzlebumm: I tried to do stubble on his head but it didn't turn out quite right. I might try later.

Looks good so far. What other color are you going to use to offset the turquiose?

sorry, but I changed his scheme already to better fit the industrial theme. I used NMM to paint the base and some dark browns and reds for the rust. I'm a little burned out on painting right now so don't expect another post with pics until he's done.
