I really like the look of the metal parts.

What kind of black do you use? I mean, which brand is it? It does not look like a GW paint.

I like that Matt look, your painting is excellent but I really like the basing, it really adds a little something to your models, very realistic.

I like the basing as well. People underestimate the importance of a good base :)

On the whole I like it, and the color-scheme/paint job is really nice. But that head looks a touch too big for the rest of the model, like he's got this big ol' pumpkin-noggin. And it being white (in contrast to the black of the body) only enhances the effect, though like I said, I like the color scheme overall, so I'm not sure what you could do differently to mitigate the size mismatch.

Those are really cool! That's kinda what Playboy wants to do with his DE army too, I think. I showed this pic to him, he likes them as well!
