Default Rodent's army so far (Pic heavy)

Here's what's happened with my 40k career over the last year... I'm poor and only just got my first job, so that's why it's so small.


Crisis suit team. (Ka-ra-tay masters :P)


All my Fire warriors.


Close-up of a Fire Warrior.


Entire Kroot kindred.

Close-up of my Krootox.


My Devilfish.


Gary, the pilot.


My pathfinders.


Pathfinders and the Devilfish.


My Ethereal.


My Stingwings.
Feedback wanted! Thanks!

You have a decent looking army there, but most of the paint looks like it is not finished yet. All of them are uneven and rough. I would go back with the vomit brown and add several more layers on everything, that should make it look 2x better. And really consider adding flock to the bases, it would take you probaly and hour or so to do it to the whole army (if that) and it makes them look alot more "finished".

OK, I'll put the flock on when I find some PVA, and the extra coats on when I can be screwed. Thanks for the comment!

Aye, properly basing a model just makes it look so much better.

I wouldn't go that far.
However, applt some more layers to your models and some flock or wot - knot on the bases

Looks good but your vomit brown is a little thin. One more coat and some highlight and your on your way to a great army!

I hate to say it, but pretty much all of it...
Battlesuits, Fire Warriors, Pathfinders, and Devilfish.

hey dude, here is a tip for ya' slap yourself in the face for making the same mistake I made, and then use some inks ( I prefer Chestnut ink) and add it on the models (after the second coat) it will turn out much better ^_^
