Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am getting back into 40k. I have chosen the Gray Knights. Here are some that I have painted. They are still needing some touch up. http://wind.blast.com/anner/gallery/minatures

They look nice. I couldn't tell from your pics, but I like to add a very watered down layer of blue ink over the armor. Gives it a nice bluish steel look.
Just my .02
Thanks. I did use Sapphire blue ink and watered it down. In person you can see it better.
Yeah they look good, again you might want to add some of the blue ink watered down but make sure it shows. Also the purity seals are a little thick but w/e. Again they look good but the blue ink would add a lot more flare. :yes: good job for you getting back into the game squad.

You need more shading, to be sure. While I'm sure that it's more noticeable in person, I can tell you that the flash doesn't wash out THAT much.
I'd also add some more color to them. They tend to look rather plain as-is, because 99% of them are silver as it stands now.
That being said, welcome back to the hobby!

Most people are saying that you need a blue ink wash but personally I find that the silver is a bit too light. I think you used a white undercoat - or at least gives that impression - I would have used black and then layered up over darker shades of silver. Blue ink would give it the sheen that steel tends to have at times.
These are pretty decent, nothing wrong with them. Just a little bit of work could make them so much better.
At Gareth.I did not notice that I mispelled Grey until you said so.
At King Ulrik Flamebeard you are correct.I did use white as a base coat. When my white primer runs out I will get some balck and try it.
