Wow, thats a lot of time to spend o a single mini.
I'll have to give some comments after all the work you've done on them then.
The SOB is nice, I like the choice in colours, but the photo makes it hard to pick out anything special, or the details.
Overall very nice, but there are some parts of the armour that don't really blend from bone to black smoothly, and the armour in his armpit is a bit messy.
Finally! Someone who takes longer than I do!:w00t:
In all seriousness, the first thing that I would say would be to thin your paints! They look a little too thick, which ruins the hard work you've obviously put in the minis.
Next, I'm not sure what color the SM is supposed to be. Is that bleached bone on a black undercoat? If so, then I would recommend a couple more coats of thinned paint on the armor.
The color scheme looks good, but the detail is obscured by the thick paint.
Still, it's clear that you took put a lot of time into them!

NO FEMALE SPACE MARINES!!!!!
I really like the models, colors, and, whaddya call it... um, fade of one color to another, especially on the chainsword and cape, but you should get a smaller brush. I really think it's probably because of the camera, but the details on the face seem distorted. I really like the skin darks in the recesses of his face. (Y) Man, you spend a long time on your models. I take about 2.5 hours MAX on a really detailed model like Azreal(plus fixing small details here and there.).
The armpit is messy due to the fact that it is converted. I currently have no conversion skills so far as of yet and I'm just trying things out... As for the camera, you can blame cannon for that, Out of 100 snapshots I tend to only get about 50 good ones these were the best I've had out of the whole photoshoot.
As for the bleached bone, I currently use a layering technique using subsequent inking and drybrushing as I phase into the next color. I know it may sound corny but the templar champions have an old gothic feeling which i was going for. I think the black undercoat really helped achieve this. But insamuch the commander is WIP so dont get rattled if you see a paint smudge that shouldnt be there, I plan on fixing him up when I get done with the conversion.
EDIT: HEH I'LL SEE YOU GUYS IN THE RETINUE CONTEST...I'M NOT TELLING YOU WHAT I'M DOING THO.

The model looks great. but just as said the face looks messy.
still maybe it's the light but the model is rather shinny which let it remind me of someone who could blind you with his necron(I detest it from then on).
DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
I must say, i remember you painting some of these little guys and how i saw some of them go from black figures to these wonderfully coloured models. I like them a lot, and i know eventually you will paint me my army after i buy the set. Ha.

As of now, I see that you have spent a lot of work on them. Further analysis is, however, impossible because of the color distortion caused by the camera flash.
I can give you a short tutorial on how to adjust photos in GIMP to get the best of them - if you want it, PM me.
I think another factor that is hurting the look of your models is the shinyness. I would highly recommend using some Testor's dullcote to kill the shine. The smaller picture of your force commander shows the work you put into it - however the close-ups are marred in gloss.
The golds look very nice and rich. Details are definitely hard to pick out with these pictures though.

You did a pretty good job, but that close-up commander photo looks a bit messy, it's just the blurriness in the photo I guess.
