@Boreas_NL Thank you very much. If I can take some closer photos I will add them but my cam is not so good :icon_sad:
@OttoVonBlotto I'm glad you like them.

Your painting looks A grade !

However , the photograhy is letting it down , the models look small, and in shadow etc.

You need a light box set up and some colour balancing in GIMP tool.

Ask yourself , what is real? 5 sense filtered reality is a very limited perspective.

Nice looking army. It's hard to single out one thing but kudos for doing stripey legs - a lot of effort* but they look grand.

* well more than I'm prepared to put in on state troops

@darknight Thank you :icon_smile:
@mr chumley warner First of all thanks. As I said before my cam is not good but if I can buy a new one, there will be better photos. By the way I'm gonna try to improve my photo skills with this crappy cam. Thanks for the feedback.
@somegeezer. Thanks a lot :icon_smile: I think with a nice tipped brush you can do striped legs quite easy but I have to say mines are a little bit sloppy :icon_smile:

You can probably improve the look of the pics by cropping them - that way, there is less empty space. Pretty much any graphics package will allow you to crop.

Nice army! I like the STank! I may borrow this idea, if I will ever have one.
Your banners are quite nice too. How did you do the letters?

And btw: Averland for the Emporer!!

@Sir_Chris Thank you  :icon_smile: For the letters: In the beginning I used a soft pencil and drew the outline then applied paint over the pencil guide with a brush but this was a very time consuming activity. Now I make letters with a micron pen. Any of fine-tipped graphic pen will do the job. Also before painting the letters practice on paper. By the way you can use decals. For example, my spearmen's banner. I used Imperial Guard decals on them.

A very nice army, Sir! But I think that you will need more tropos...Great job with the FreeHand paint in the Standarts.
