hehe seem you are better at painting than taking pictures

I like the scheme and think you made a decent job. It looks clean. when the bases are done they will look great

Your paintjob is nice and clean. But you have to highlight the minis, do the bases and add the details such as different shades on the lenses with a small white dot in it, and maybe some stripes on the helmet and/or the shoulder pad, if you like

they look good, although that scorched brown would look better with bestial brown over it to make your model a bit brighter, unless of course you were going for a dark on dark color scheme

Hey,
you did a wonderful job at accomplishing something called "flatcolor." It isn't bad, it simply doesn't have highlights, blending, or any source lighting or layering. Some simple techniques like that would make your already good scheme, much much better.

Great job, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hmm...nice dark colour scheme. Some highlighting would improve the models considerably.

However, why do you want to leave the bases like that? Too plain. If you put sand and grass, the models will stand out even more!
