Here are some pictures of my Dark Riders.

These look really good in my opinion well done indeed
Slaanesh, god of the beer goggles
That's a great colour scheme and congratulations on getting such a good yellow.
I really like them but I think the spearheads really let them down, a quick wash might save them though.
Up, up and away!
These look great! The colors are well chosen and well painted. Good job
I do agree with Walex; if you do a few washes to take the edge a bit off the highlights on the spearheads, they'll look a little more natural. They look great though!
Wow, your an amazing painter.
Any chance of a group shot/army shot?
EDIT:also your photos are so....so....magazine like+your amazing painting= you sir are a true artist.

Very well done, both in painting and photography.
Hey, I really like the painting, it's very crisp and solid. As someone said, the spearheads could use a little love, but other than that, no complaints. The photography is solid too. Oh, and I think the yellow you've chosen is a perfect accent to your toned down blue on these models, I would love to see how you handle some of the other elves, whether they use the same deep blue, etc.
I will however play devil's advocate on a couple other things, and I hope you don't take any of it as offensive, as it is purely my opinions and has more to do with choices than actual talent.
1) I'm not a huge fan of the little dead grass spouts, they don't really seem to go with the rest of the basing.
2) Overuse of blue - I think that making the dark steeds the same kind of dark blue as your cloaks was possibly a mistake. I think it could work really great on some other beasts, like a hydra, to unify it with your army. On the dark steeds, the riders are already unifying with the army, and the steed is the chance to give the unit a little pop. Personally, I would've gone with a straight black highlighted with regular grays to give them that classic dark rider feel.
3) Overuse of blue again - While it is a different enough blue, I personally wouldn't use the gradient of top to bottom blue to white background on the photo, once again, I would try to shoot for more contrast.
Anyways, like I said, it's very good work, and my suggestions are all a matter of personal preference. If you are happy with the above things the way they are, then there's nothing wrong with them. I just thought I'd thought out my constructive (hopefully) criticism, since I assume you are asking for it.
Thanks for posting them up!
