Very Nice , good colour scheme , nice metallics , clean red (I can never acheive that :-\). I have one quibble , some of the highlights are quite thick but nobodys perfect (well some people are,I'm looking at you Komrad,Gareth,Waaagh) and I'm sure they are not nearly so noticeable in real life.

Things I like:
The freehand! That little N on his shoulder makes all the difference, as does the named scroll on his base. It shows that you're not afraid to try and paint on your own details, and (obviously) the more you do it, the better you'll be.
The limited pallette. You've used all of about 5 colours - black, grey, red, silver and bone. That's it - nothing over the top, nothing that jumps out and vies for your attention ... you've get the red minimal, highlighted it well in that it's simplistic and not too strong, and you've dulled the metallics to suit.
The base - simple, clean, realistic, and there!

Things I don't like:
The grey highlighting. It's just a little too stark and in-your-face for me. To be honest I couldn't tell you how to do it better, but it's just not at the same standard as the rest of the model, in my eyes.
That's about it for this list :P


Overall it's a fairly impressive model, above TTS I'd say - if you can paint a full army like this, and give it all character then you've done very well indeed!

thanks for the comments. do you think, that mixing more black into the highlights would help?

WOW!

OKAY!

NICE!

very good!

yes good paint job. Not sure about the "night assassins" though. terminators seem a tad clunky for silently stalking.
