I'd give it a 6. (CMON style)
The painting is nice and neat and there's some good highighting there. Nothing really that says display standard, so about what you want for a gaming army.

I don't know if it's just the quality of the photographs, but the finish does look a little rough. This usually means you need to add some water to your paints.

Anyway, well done and keep going.

Thats looking good man. I like the strong Classic GW style. Nicely exected here.

EDIT : oops. voting : 7/10 for FWs and friends

Like Prophaniti, not so sure on the water effect stealths though, possibly more smoother wave lines? Ultimately a personal opinion ;) :nice:

EDIT : oops. voting : 6/10 for Stealths
(high for effort, losing some for the effect issue I mentioned)

The 3 FWs with the "earthed" bases indicate how good the rest of your squad could look.

The ethereal looks good too....give him a FW honour guard. Their boosted BS could be useful. ;)

The stealths look like they've got a type of digital camo patterning. Not so sure about the puddle that one of them is standing in though.

So your suggesting that I make the rest of the FW have brown bases? Sounds good to me they would all look and little better and a bit more organised and uniform. PLus i can base them then and put grass on top if I ever get any :D
Thanks for your feedback i feel the inspiration to paint another few! :)

Not at home so i couldn't increase the quality, but I just finished painting my hammerhead yesterday. Here it is I hope you like it. I would call this: my best painted vehicle.

Nice work. It is always good to see a Hammerhead done in the classic scheme. The blue & green on the back deck is a neat touch of colour.

I wish the GW transfers were slightly less shiny though as they tend to flare up in photos.

Very strong definition with the highlights, makes the HH more solid and agressive. Your colour contrast placements are good too, not too much but still dominant as a secondary element in the scheme :)

Hey, that's pretty nice! Good use of the decals, too. Looks like the sort of info and warning marks you see on real vehicles.

Also went and based everyone of my white undercoated kroot, I just need to get hold of the right colours.
So how do you think they look now? :)
