Looking good so far!

What I've found is useful is to have a single marine (doesn't even have to be of the same army) to practice blending and freehanding on. Doesn't matter how thick the paint gets on the model since he's a test model!

But anyway, I agree with Khani, maybe try applying another coat of blue wash to make that blue nice and deep.

I will try a darker blue next, but this is what I added to my Prince (shoulder pad) to test out the purple with red and blue to make sure it looks right... I like it and think I will stay with purple.

Great models. What did you do for Magnus' gold ( oh, the irony)(my name) and what did you use for the obliterators skin.

Looks awesome to me, just because you have a style not quite like Eavy Metals doesn't mean you arent freakin amazing!
And that NMM is some of the best I've seen :D
