They look good (photo quality notwithstanding). I do, however, have a few recommendations for you if you want to hear them (if not, look away now).
  • Base them, it makes a huge difference. The Cities of Death basing kit makes for some excellant bases.
  • Use a pin vice to drill out the muzzles if you haven't already (it's hard to tell).
  • Get a grip of your grammar and punctuation.
  • If you want to add cam cream, I recommend you apply long black steaks all the way accross their faces...because you're right; they do look like whiskers.

Otherwise I think they're great, you're much better at painting miniatures than me. I love the layering apparent here; the grenades look especially fabulous...such precision. I'm rubbish with faces, I have a particular problem with the eyes. In my own scout squad, I modelled NVGs covering the eyes on the models I couldn't get right! So what Chapter are they?

Flaming will not be tolerated. Reported. Also, am I to assume that you have never tried to paint before? Despite the fuzziness, it is obvious to anyone who has so much as held a brush that these models are well above tabletop standard, approaching tournament standard. - [size=8pt]Taken care of. -mace[/size]

Detail, from what I can see, is suburb. The silver is slightly thick in a few places and the faces are ever so slightly off (hard to get, I know - mine are monochromatic :P) but otherwise good.

Pics could be better. Again, touch up the pics in phtotshop and use the Marco function. Still these pics are an improvement.

So what chapter are they from? Are they your own creation?

Ah yeah...they've been very popular since Dawn of War. You'll have to show us the rest of your army. If they're anything like your scouts, it'll be an impressive sight!

Yeah, but he was banned and his posts deleted. His name was either tauareshit_smrule or U_R_BREAKING_MY_BALZ (yes, there were TWO new idiot members banned last night...).
