All of my models that I have taken photos (on my cheap ass phone) are here:
Was wondering what you guys thought of the Empire models. Still got 40 Handgunners and 2 Steam Tanks and another cannon and a mortar to put up.
I guess you do not have access to a 'real' camera?!
Anyway I think you could improve some of your pictures by testing which point your phone actually focusses.

I think on this picture you can see very well what I mean. The mini itself is not blurry at all, but his pointy finger.
Now click here!
This guy on the other hand seems to be very blurry, but look at his feet.
If you experiment a bit more with the distance between the mini and your phone you should be able to improve some of the pics a lot. Still I don't think I would have been able to take so good pictures only with the camera of a phone... Well done
Now to what you were actually asking for...
Your cannon looks great, especially the metal looks like a nice shiny brass, almost seeming golden.
But what are these dark brown areas on the wood? I think you used snakebite leather or an equivalent of another manufacturer for the base colour. Are the dark spots ink?

I like the uniformity created by the blue-red-bone scheme you keep on all of your minis.
See what I mean? No? Click here!
But the wizards and so on would stand out a bit more if you used some different colours for them.
For example you could even give the wizards their very own colour scheme. In the end they are not only soldiers of your army. You could use the college they belong to as a basis for a unique design of each wizard.
At the moment the only thing that distinguishes these two guys Click! Click again!
from the ordinary soldier are their brown robes.
With the general this not so much a problem, since he is still some kind of soldier of your army and the more blue and red you used on him already make him stand out a bit.
I think the monkey looks great, but where did you get him from?
Yeah those dark spots are needing work, funnily enough the other side of the cannon is no-where near as bad lol. Nevermind.
With the phone thing, I have a camera but I have no means to get pictures off of it onto my pc as my cable is at home (I'm at uni), and it is also rubbish lol. But yeah, the idea was to keep them all looking like they are part of the Royal army and thus the wizards would be in a uniformed colour, but I do agree that they would probably look better with a variation element.
As for the monkey it is the powder monkey from the Empire Handgunners sprue. I think I have read too much Terry Pratchett to let that one go.
See now I am tempted to do another wizard as Rincewind and have a Luggage to go with then fill in my other wizards as other Discworld characters, would be so funny!
