Greetings. I've been working on these guys off and on for a while now as a side project.
They're table top quality, but I finally decided to post them to get a fresh perspective on what people thought of them. I didn't go with the shiny power armor as some of the Grey Knights I've seen, but I don't think it's too bad. After all, they battle Daemons!

They look great. My only criticism (and to be fair, I'm rather picky...) is that the metallics seem to lack depth. I look at it and it's like a wall of silver, rather than a shaped sheen and I think a wash or two will really help bring it out.
"Darnath Lysander is the Samuel L. Jackson of the 40k universe."
What Squirrel_Fish said.
Overall they look quite solid, but washing the metallics one or twice to add a bit of shading and depth would add a lot to these badass mo-fo's.
Is the sand on the base painted? Hard to see, but it looks to me like regular GW modelling sand that have just been glued on. Painting it with a dark brown and drybrushing it with a few shades lighter browns will do a lot for them!
Thank you for the suggestions! Ordinarily, I don't have too much of a problem painting marines, but metallics seem to be a sticking point for me. I'll definitely give them a few black washes then possibly a light drybrush of mithril silver.
As for the bases, I do see your point as they are a little bland, aren't they? I'll definitely work on that.
I like what you have done to your Grey knights, it reminds me I must get one to paint up someday. I like that you have worked hard on lots of the details and added writing to the scrolls and purity seals. Reppy for you.
Frankly i dont like the grey knight models, not a fan of the the helmets. but its a good paint job, nevertheless.
That kind of highlighting will work wonders.
Brilliant everyone, I'll definitely try the basing idea and I'll definitely try that mixture Canew. Now to tear myself away from my Salamanders....
Hello again. I reworked one of my Grey Knights using the provided advice and this is what I came up with.
I repainted the armor and gave it a good black wash or two. Next, I highlighted the edges using a mix of mithril silver and skull white. The base was painted bestial brown, followed by a black wash of the sand and finished with a bleached bone drybrush.
Overall, I think it's a good improvement over what I originally posted.
