Needs basing, but the actual model from a distance looks pretty decent. I like the scheme, and the lighting effects on the eyes were well done.

However, the seals on his person look a tad bit like plastic (not paper), and are blank. What colours did you use for them? I'd advise going over them with a highlight coat of GW Bleached Bone. From there just make little squiggly lines on the seals for Imperial writing. It makes for a darling little model, IMO.

The power pack looks like it could use some more highlighting too.

Not bad. Some writings on the scrolls would be nice though.

Oh, a purple marine! That's great! Just fix the scroll and make the base and it will be awesome

*wonders if purple marines taste like grapes...*

Really though I love them, and the purple's such a nice departure from the norm, a nice breath of fresh air.

Good job on the highlights, but they really need some basework done...based models look 110% better.

Purple's great, nice highlights.

The flesh in the last pic could use some work, maybe a quick brown wash.

Great work, but the flesh needs a bit of a tidying up, flesh wash?
