I think the helmets are a little flat in that you can't see the detail to well. I would recommend using a base black and working up leaving thin black lines, I find this really makes the helmet stand out on my BA. You can also do this for the eagle and other detailed areas. You could also try just doing a black wash, its easier but alittle more messy (you'll have to go over later). Also maybe try blending the yellow for your weapons as the yellow kinda looks out of place. I like the power axe you have on your vet sgt looks very cool.
I posted most of my better miniatures on my deviant art site if people are interested in looking at them. It includes mostly Blood Angels, Eldar and my new tyranid dipping experiments

Your painting is clean however the paint looks thick. I would recommend thinning your paint down. Several thin coats will always look better than 1 thick one. If you are using a gloss varnish you might want to consider hitting the model with Testor's Dullcote to take away the shine. In my experience glossy figures at this scale don't look good.
Your yellow looks like it is not shaded. I would recommend starting with a brown base color and build up to the yellow.

Thanks for the feedback, yeah my yellow needs work. Problem is I tend to paint basic models fast because I want to use them in games heh so I dont tend to work on them as much as say character models but I got my fast painting down because all my marines have the same procedure used on them
Anyway I appreciate the feedback, anything that helps me get better is useful
I also like how 311s reply is before the original topic was posted, go go clock
yeah I replied before you posted.. im that good.
They look pretty good.......but you really need to water your paints down and build up your colours abit more,that will dramatically improve your painting.I like the DC in robes.If you ever do an entire DC in robes one day that will look awesome.
As everyone else said, thinner paints. But also on the Honour Guard (Golden armoured marines with Thunder hammer) I don't really see any shading, the chest icons and skulls on shield etc could do with a slight bit of shading/highlighting. IMO just that simple act can improve a model alot.
Also I would suggest you tidy them up slightly, I've seen a few places where there are a few mistakes on other areas. But it's not too noticable.
