Default Space Marines- Combat Patrol Army

This is my combat patrol force, they are not based but are painting is finished. They are a crusading chapter that is connected to the iron hands. They are my second army and i really would love some feedback on the painting, also i would like a rating overall from 1-10 as it helps me guauge my improvement better than adjectives like good, great, horrible, okay.

here are the shots of the three units

the command squad


the plasma squad

(which color plasma do you prefer?)

and the devestator (sorry about the horribly bright picture)


and now close-ups

The Standard Bearer(my favorite model)


his arm comes off :yes:

and my first ever freehand :|


The Commander


(he will become a seargent later on so hes not superbly painted but i think a little better

and the Plasma Cannon

my first try at light sourcing





i really have worked hard on this army so far and cannot wait to continue it, i did base the standard bearer and that will be how the bases will look for the rest of the army, i know they are not done now so dont all comment on the need to base them, i am fully aware of this. please respond with comments and critisisms, also i tried taking my pictures in natural light, save the devestator squad and would like to know if you like the picture quality or if you would of liked a pure white backdrop?

I have to say that it is pretty nifty. I like your color choice, its not something that you see every day.

But I have to say, I like the color of the plasma cannon more than the gun, sorry :P

my only complaint is that the highlights are a little too thick, but otherwise they look great ^_^

I give them a 7 overall. I like the basing you chose for the standard bearer and I think the rest of the force will look fantastic once properly based. A few things could be neater but definitely a good looking force. The red plasma effect looks great but I really like the look of blue plasma, possibly even green for your guys since green would contrast well with purple.

since these guys are iron hands succesors i am starting my terminators right now, they will be the retinue for my chaplain in terminator armor and are the oldest of the army, without going into to much of my fluff this army is on a crusade to hunt down a techmarine that turned to chaos, now the terminators will be painted in original iron hands colors along with my chaplain and will eventually be 10 man strong. I will hopefully post a picture of the first one soon

The source lighting effect is nicely pulled off and it really enhances the model. Good use of a grey knight too.

Looking forward to seeing the terminators.

A 6 from me now they're mostly finished and we can see them as a group. I like the standard bearer's lenses and (to a lesser extent) the freehand chapter symbol. I also still really like your extreme highlighting. However, that plasma cannon is a step beyond...he's fething awesome! Really loving the warning stripes on the cannon and the glow effect is lovely (definitely stealing it for my Elysian plasma gunners). Why did you do the plasma gun blue though?
