Okay, ive just found the better button on my camera, after three years. It turns out all along it was on 1m normal, when it can go up to 6m. I dont know what the m means but its actually stupidly powerful and zoomed in, so its now on 2.







Can you do me a favour and say what theyre like less blurred?







And theres my first Crisis aswell!

yeah nice clean scheme, like Scizor said the white grey and red are a brilliant combo, for your first ones id say they were pretty good, things can only get better from here on in

good job

it looks like you use a black undercoat, or no undercoat at all, i would suggest the white one, it saves you alot of hassle. you could try out the foundation paints as a base.

it is good though, it all goes nicely.

They look good,maybe a tad thick but you can easily fix that with patience and practicing to water them down.
As i have said before i love the scheme,it has such a cool look to it.

My only concern is the base.TBH it really needs some kind of flock or something,it really will improve the models alot!

The crisis suit is awesome by the way,love the pose!

Oh and the M on the camera means macro,which is used for taking pics of small detailed things,such as flowers(usually a flower is used instead of an 'm&#39 or models.

Uuuh, they are flocked?

@Marc, as much as id like to use white spray i hate its guts, it totally ruined my eldar army, so ill stick with the black and go from black to grey to white.

But thanks for the comments.

Darkmoon, I advise you use a colour like bleached bone or a grey and then highlight it up to white.
I also I advise you weaken your paints.
Otherwise they are well painted, I like the Ui's face.
