Hm......your cadian fellow need some chestnut ink on their flesh. Makes them more realistic.

And it seems that the tatank is a little weird. Looks as if the camoflage is kinda short out of water in terms of the lines on the tank.

I don't have chestnut ink at the mo and yes I agree the tank camo is a little messy but it doesn't look too bad in real life , pirate are you serious , its not that good lol

The white on the tanks needs to be more definate and the blue needs to be neater. The men look good but as said need some inking. I love the commissar great work on him. and your bases need a little fixing. I would try using silver instead of gold on the bayonets as well.

But one thing i really like and find different is your scheme. It's great!

In my opinion, flesh wash does the best job. I paint the face with dwarf flesh, give it a once over with flesh was, then highlight with elf flesh. Quick and effective.

i just slap on some dwarf flesh. anyways:

the white lines on your tank seem a bit broken, as if your white paint had dried out. happened to me once, but i couldn't be asked buying new paint so i jsut left it. but other than its great.

camo scheme on the cadians looks good but i can't place it to a sepcific theme.

a word of advice on your commissar, change the blue for dark red. commissars have to be black and red, no bones about it.

all in all good job. much better than my half a**ed excuses for armies.
