Default My new color scheme

Camera kinda sucks, what do you guys think though? The firewarriors cloth is the same color as the devilfish/shas'el

The devilfish is highlighted, the shas'el and firewarrior are not yet (need more gray)

Um. DId you just paint gem effects etc onto the models because the grey looks a lot like the plastic.

I guess it does look like that heh. No it really is painted and it doesn't look like the same grey in person. Again, no highlighting on the firewarrior because I am out of the appropriate paint.

i think it's just picture quality, try to set them up on a piece of white paper (behind and under) and add a little mroe light, that will help bringing out teh colours a lot more

i personally like it, they look very militarized instead of bright & bold like too many things look in 40k

From a distance it looks almost green ( :huh anyway, you really need some better quality pictures, and to highlight the models to create depth.

Although I must praise your clean style of painting!

I like it, but you need another color in there. White or black would look good - it looks very plain with the all grey (except for a little green here and there).

I'd say you should add something that sharply contrasts with such a low-key scheme, so that it actually looks noticably painted.
