Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've been painting away but haven't updated in ages. I have a few more kasrkin and my command squad to do yet, but I ran out of models so I'm waiting on another box of guardsmen. I'm going to mix in some catachen heads and other things to give them the more loosely uniformed, gritty woodland unit look that I want to match their Light Infantry/Cameleonine doctrines.

Some men will be getting camo, others will have cameleoline cloaks.
Kasrkin and their ride
I still have to go back and weather the Russ more.

I want everyone to remeber why they need us!
It looks like you're painting is pretty solid. I like the color scheme, and the tank camo is good without being to blotchy like camo can get sometimes.
The only thing I'd suggest is instead of drybrushing the black flak armor with grey you highlight it instead. It makes it look a little cleaner (though this may not necessarily be the look you want). I think some by-hand highlights like this will really make these models shine. Good luck to you with IG; it's gonna take some serious dedication to get a whole army of the little guys painted, but trust me it's worth it!
I might try some highlighting on the commander to show his well-kept armor. I'm trying to avoid the cartoonish looking heavy highlights. As much as I like the look, I'd like a little more grit with these guys. The drybrush looks sort of like their armor was hastily spray painted which I like.
I take it this isn't your first army?
IG is my first army... and it doesn't look as good as yours :<
Thanks Puddy. It's my first army, I'm just in an artsy field.
I had a bit of a painting binge today and got 4 more done.
So here's 1st squad, minus the autocannon.
Here's a really big picture without very good lighting

Very well done for a first army, indeed!
