Hey, that's some fantastic work! The purple and gem work is brilliant, although I think the flesh could do with a bit more depth. Otherwise Good stuff!

Nice. They look like they could be related to my Sororitas. I'm using the same color for their armor. Good choice

They look awesome just one question why are they called the "crimson roses" when they have no red on them

Superb! The only part that doesn't jive is the eyes; the models are spectacular but the eyes are all just formless globs of colour.

Dayme! those are nice in my book! I love the gems and such, but the skin looks like it got Nurgle-fied. (not that I'm any better) And I have NEVER seen anyone paint a marine puple and make it look so good! ;D

all and all, Great work!

I love your highliights. How did you do 'em? They're nice, clean, and smooth.

The flesh could use a little work - start with dark flesh and build up from there lightly, it's an easy technique that should get you some pretty good faces in short time.

Hey thankyou very much the skin was really tough for me haha ive never painted flesh before so i really need to work on that but these are only normal tactical marines so ill put alot more time into the commander and stuff, responding to the muffinator for my highlights i take the purple base and add a very slight amount of white this goes on most edges then come the real highlights. i add a little more white and go for the hard edges (halo of light) if you dont know what that is take a look at games workshops how to paint black tutorial in the black templar section its a great. finally come 1 or two more strong highlights that are very thin and these only go on a select few places... when highlighting its a good idea to add some water so the layers of highlights will flow together and become one going from light down to dark rather than choppy edges, a more annunciated version of this technique is wet blending which im still working on. again thanks for the great feedback

Love the look. You should add a touch of red though somewhere because of the name.
