Well Im about half done painting my army so I thought I would get some oppinions on my guys.
The original picture was alot bigger but for some reason photobucket resized them.
And if possible, I need some help on the guns. As you can see right now their just all dry brushed with gunmetal and a little bit of red detail. I can't think of any other way to paint them but it just bugs me how plain they are now. Does anyone do them a different way?
So far so good Quiksilver, I have a few suggestions to make your guns/models better. The first suggestion is for the guns. If you can get your hands on a hand drill (GW sell them) and drill out the barrels of the guns, it really adds to the models. If I were you I would also give the guns a wash a watered down flesh ink or brown ink. This gives the guns a rusty look. If you want you can add green and black ink to give the guns an oily look. Its up to you, just make sure you dilute the ink. Secondly I can still see a few flash lines on the guns so I would try and get rid of them.
Otherwise I like the models so far, maybe the bases need some more work but apart from that its looking great. Hope thats some help.

Yeah, they are table-worthy for sure. Bases will add a lot to the model, you might try some copper-like details on the guns, combined with the ink sugestion above...
If you want more on your guns - you could always paint the gun casing a different color from the barrel. Black would work, maybe pull a color from the rest of your army or find a complimentary color to go along the other colors in your army.
I agree with the above statements in regards to the gun barrels. Drilling them out will make them look all the better.
In the future you may want to look at cleaning your mold lines, drilling the guns, and designing your basing before you prime and paint. A long time ago I used to base the figures after I painted them but it ends up looking haphazzard and thrown together at the last minute. You will get a much more cohesive look if you do the base at the same time you are doing everything else.
Good luck and as of now they aren't that bad. Nice and clean for sure.

Add some lighter highlites to your regular boyz because they are suppose to be lighter skinned and smaller then the older boyz. But other than that they look good.:w00t:
