Hi, this is Captain Sicarius, of the Ultramarines. Looking at the pics, i can see that there is qutie a few areas that need sorting, namely the power armour, which i've highlighted too grey and the lowlights which are too shiny (damn inks!!). Any comments/suggestions welcome.

other than the fact hes missing an arm theirs not much wrong i can criticise , personally when im painting ultramarines i start with a dark blue and leave out ultramarine blue altogether as its too dull, then just add more white with each layer to do the highlights, you've gone grey which works but doesnt make the model pop IMO
id water your paints down just a touch, but it might just be the fact the model is in extreme closeup
the face looks very nice as well btw

It's a beautiful model for sure, so besides the colour of the armour i have no objections. It's very well done.
