Welcome to Librarium Online!
Actually, it is my first time painting SMs since my childhood when I was around 11 years old. He is just a normal troop from the Black Reach set. I still need to finish basing him (waiting for the white glue to dry) and I missed a few details such as his belt pouch, but overall I am satisfied with him.
What can you guys recommend to make him a bit better?
I like it be good to see when the base is done as that always makes an impact.
The yellow is very good and solid which is not easy to do.
If i where you i would go and do those extra bits currently with them been yellow it doesn't look as good as it could.
Overall though i really like and i am impressed by the yellow as i know first hand its a pin of a colour.

The fact that you've managed to get such a deep yellow is very impressive. Yellow is a really hard colour to work with so well done on that one.
For improvements, it wouldn't hurt to add a little more contrast to the model. Perhaps with a simple wash to the recesses. It would just bring out the individual segments of armour just a little bit more.
Other than that, very well done

I think he looks great, and as already stated, awesome job on the yellow. The only thing I would add is a complementary color of some sort. I'm not familiar with SM or the specific chapters so maybe that would screw it up, but it just seems a bit blah to me. But again, fantastic skills and technique.
ChadMS, I may try a wash. I did some inking in the recesses, but you are right it doesn't pop as much as it could.
qajorgenson, I'm going to add some Iron Fist decals which will bring some red onto the shoulder pad. I may end up painting the gun a different color rather than just drybrushing boltgun over black.
Thanks for the comments!
I like the highlights on the Bolt Gun
