Well now that I have learned my way around the camera, I have managed to get some decent pictures.
Mind you I am not trying to paint for Showcase, just for a better than tabletop quality..
I am still learning highlights, and have not yet based anything due to lack of money, (I will get to the basing though)
Please don't mind the dustiness of some of them.. I will rinse them and redo the pictures.
The models are painted great, but they look a little flat. This might be the flash of the camera though, as this tends to do that. Great Job anyhow! If you're low on money for basing, don't buy Games Workshop grass, just get model train grass as it's much cheaper. Also, PVA + sand which is then painted can make a very very effective and cheap base.
How do you mean flat? As in not glossy?
I think that he is talking about the Servitors in the last pic, their clothing is one colour so looks flat rather than textured like the beard or the cloak on the spacemarine guy.
I actually don't think that they look flat really, maybe the paint is a little bit thick but overall I think that they look quite tidy, Particularly like that first guy.
For basing material, go to you nearest playground and grab a bucketful of sand. Sift it in a colandar to get the finer grains and then use PVA glue to affix to your base. Give it a quick wash of brown and then highlight with Bleached bone.
Bad stuff first: The paint looks a little thick.
Good stuff: Nicely painted
Particularly like the techmarine.
The templar guy seems to remind me of NMM, in some way...
Try watering your paints down for your next set of models, but a little rep anyway.
...And what is the model in the second picture?
edit: the sword (or handle) in the second picture is bent.

I think they look very good. To me the fact that they are not glossy just makes them look like they have been through many battles. I would like to see what they look like when they are based. How are you planning on basing them?
For the fantasy minis, I will just go with a sand and static grass basing.. I use them for D&D all the time, so they get a lot more use than the 40k pieces... So something simple.
As for the Tech and servitors, I want to build a diorama with inset for them. I just don't want to purchase another tank for them to be fixing in the diorama. Maybe a Ruined building and base them to match obviously..
As for Helbrecht, I plan on changing over to a Larger base for him, and believe that a Temple floor intact should look good... BT temple to be specific...
As for the not looking glossy, for some reason, my orcs and goblins actually come out glossy with my overcoat (Flat spray) but I actually like the look on them that way.
