I like the camo, maybe put a wash of some sort of neutral color to kinda "blend" them together...
also add some detail, I'd like those eyes to be a different color ;)

Im glad you like the camo. Sadly i don't have any washes and i am very inexperienced with them. what should i buy?
Thanks!

Well first off add abit more detail, eyes, guns, ensignias. etc. Then get youself some black ink, this will make you guys amour look like amour as oppsed to plastic. When using ink be very gentle, use ALOT of water ratio 3/1 2 parts water to one part ink. TBH i wouldn't bother with washes on standard troops, reserve the awesome painting skills to special characters.

Sorry for not posting but i've still been stalking the thread, i have a really cool chaplin that i'll get photo'd up for you guys (but knowing me probabley won't) and for tips on the marines:
First basecoat them before painting e.g. black spray paint or just chaos black paint undercoat this will give them a better finish, then paint the grey onto it afterwards (using GW codex grey ?) to get the base colour.
Second give it a wash of GW Badab Black in your case to blend it together (don't listen to the others, it takes a relativley short time and gives good results).

@ dingbat again

I used to use inks a lot, not I go with washes...
if you DO use inks though, just like the guy before water them down, if you use the wash instead no need to worry about watering down, its watered down enough

an ink is stronger...and more potent if you will, it will darken the recesses but it might also darken the rest of the model

a wash will also darken the recesses, which is what you want, and it'll generally keep the rest of the armor at its original tone (it may darken or change the color a little, but just a little, not as much as an ink)

That's pretty bitchin' i like. Also BLOOD ANGELS RE-RELEASED it's been about 11 years but finally a new lease of life for one of the original chapters. We went into GW yesterday to pick up some models to beef my brothers army out but they were sold out of practically everything :0 but we managed to get one of the new baals, mephison, dante and the codex. They are looking pretty bitchin' if i do say so myself.

not quite as bitchin' as taufanatic's Valkyrie though, of course not.

I just dislike these points:
Stormravens
FAST Vidicators/predators/whirlwinds(wut?)
Deep striking landraiders
An army of dreadnaughts, how the hell can they do that?
6 predators (3 baals as fast attack, 3 reg as heavies)
Honestly, the fuck?

Overpowered IMHO.

Good luck with that, at $5.3 each, not including shipping and handling and messing with the warped (lol) resin, I doubt you could make a large one, unless you are like, some billionaire that has only time on his hands.
Sorry if I sound kinda mean, but I tell it how I see it. /:

No it's fine, this is why i said oh dear at the start of the post, because they're so expensive, £40 for a squad :o But one can always dream.

The Death Korps are pretty expensive, or at least the stores I've been to they are!
Very nice ones although.

are you using primer? I was assuming you just basecoated the models grey but it looks more like plastic than paint...

you're already going, so go ahead but next I think you'd want to invest in some primer...
don't buy GW primer though, its too expensive and you can find other primers for cheaper, I'd try looking in other hobby shops

Though it's more expensive i prefer it. It works alot better, it gives a much nice base to paint on. It's a nice matte finish as opposed to the glossy finish you get off most sprays and primers.

I think the highlights on your models' armor is a bit harsh, but otherwise I like how they look. The armor looks a little dirrty from whatever wash you used, some people like it and some people don't but I think it looks nice either way

Bloody good job mate, they are some lovely models, also i love the custom multi-melta. Congrats on some brilliant models, though as TAUfanatic says a bit wash heavy, still quite nice.
