Tactical squad color experiment

These are 3 of a squad of 9 Tactical Space Marines that I'm currently building. I've been practicing here some edge highlighting, a new helmet pattern and a glow effect for eyes and the flamer nozzle.

The glow effect was done in the following steps:
1) Fill the flamer holes with Mechrite red.
2) Apply a variable quantity of Sunburst Yellow in the holes (more in the center holes, less in the top and bottom holes)
3) Apply a variable amount of Baal Red wash (more in the center holes, less in the top and bottom holes)
4) A soft Chaos Black drybrush in order to clean any red and yellow paint that was outside the holes.

While it's not being "realistic" I did it because it adds a little more life to the weapon, since the bolters are all static pieces of metal.

why would the flamer be glowing? I mean I am just wondering because generally the volatile fuel is not lit until it leaves the weapon.

Well, they should enlarge when clicked on. I've tested in both IE and FF and it works. Don't have others, tho :/
