Really nice! As said, the Plasma Gunner looks really cool!

My only advice to give would be for taking pictures, not their content. :)
The pictures posted are close so a little blurry (only a little). If you are not already, be sure that you are using the 'Macro' setting (the little flower symbol) on your camera.

But really cool models, well done!

really don't like the grey edged highlights... i prefer the "less is more" approach where you'd just do the grey line on the highest surfaces rather then every single edge.

I like the robes though,

not keen on the plasma gunner, although i like the way you've come up with a never seen before pose, rather then following a trend like most people do.

Good work overall!

@ Mighty Camel,
Tell me your ideas. ^^
I thought of cutting up one guy so he leans back and fires a bolter/missile launcher/plasma gun/whatever between his legs, some guys jumping forward/backward/sideways firing weapons (preferably one weapon in each hand), someone wheeling on one hand and firing a weapon with the other one and so on. :)

I like it except for the highlights on the black. Honestly, I rarely see black highlighted well... either it's too much, or you can't see it (this includes mine as well.) It's just plain hard to work when you don't have a darker shade (unless somebody has come across Ultrablack.) What I've tried doing is using a dark grey (Vallejo German Grey... it's probably about the equivalent of a 50/50 mix of Codex Grey and Chaos black.) and then hitting it with a few black washes. It's still pretty dark, but gives you a lot more range for your colors.

Good job.

I'm a graphic designer and when we send artwork to the presses and we want it really black we do a mix of cyan (blue) and black (100% of each), gives a real dark black as opposed to 100% black on its own. Dunno how it'll work with acylic paints though...

@ Mighty Camel

Sounds good. Especially the idea with having a marine jumping sideways firing boltpistols or something. I may steal that idea. '._.'

Thanks for the other replies guys. :)

IMO i also like thick highlight but i think the highlight used is a little to light and it seems to be only one colour of highlight, rather than working up to a fial drybrush of the realy soft colour.

i think the pictures arent very flattering to the mods either. but this is a small critisism on an alround nice looking bunch of models

i also think the plasma gunner shows great skills in converting, although i do peffer to think of him as shooting over cover than being an arrogant show off. i know i sound stuck up but marines to me are always men of great honour and discipline.
