These are my first six. there was no first one, i painted all 6 at the same time, in steps. the rest of the army is only primed and basecoated
comments and suggestions are welcome, just keep in mind that if the bar is set way up with these first ones, then the rest of my army will take far too long to finish. i'm new to this
I know that my vespids look like tyranids, it wasn't my intention, i chose the colour scheme first, and then realised this. But i really liked the colour scheme and went ahead with it, so oh well.

the vespids look really good, there not enougth paint on the fire warriors for me to judge but i would sujest getting some primer. This would really improve the final quality of the paintjob. Good luck with the rest
Nice scheme there, Takeda. However, there is no detail; you need to get some paint into the crevices and lines to pull out the detail some more. I'd recommend doing a light wash of really watered down black or blue to get into the crevices, then re-painting the raised surfaces (maybe drybrushing, etc.).
Also, images should be no larger than 700 pixels wide. Either resize images larger than this or post them as links; I edited your image to be a link to show you what I mean. Thanks.
Well, you show some nice clean well-controlled BASE-coating. It is very important to be
tidy but you are just getting started! Next step is to take those same colors that you used and mix it with a deeper/darker shade/ and water to do a thin wash. This will bring out the details that are begging to be shown. after the wash, let dry fully then carefully layer on the original color followed by.... drybrushing the high spots with your base color mixed with either tan/white/pale grey. When painting minis you need to paint the shadows and highlights that would ordinarily just be there from natural light. However, if you are just happy to get painted feet on the table and get the dice rolling, what you have is fine and dandy! good luck!
Armies thus far....
Okay they look good, and I really like the paint schemes and everything but I have some suggestions:
The Vespids...the green could really do with a chestnut ink wash about 3:1 water to ink...
The Fire Warriors...The white I would suggest a regal blue wash about 5:1 water to paint...(because the paint is generally thicker then ink already), and the gray could use a black wash 3:1 (water to paint)
This will help increase the depth of your warriors. They look awesome, keep up the good job and I can't wait to see more.
