First 3 bikers ready for markings and bases.

I'll try to add some dirt/mud to the wheels too.

You should... take some better pics so we can see your work. Focus is your friend.

Retake the photos.
If your using a digital camera and are having problems with the sensor that is in charge of image focus.

Try this:
Most digital cameras have a multi-step action, the first 1/2 click of the button is 'focus'
hold a pencil at the distance from the lens that miniatures will be
1/2 click to focus
check the camera's screen when you adjust the miniatures to be in the 'focus spot'
then finish taking the picture.

hope that made sense.

Despite the focus issue I like the colour scheme. It works quite well for scouts. I'd be interested to see some Tactical Marines. What chapter badge have you gone for?

i know my photo-fu sucks

I'll try again with another camera (analog) when they got bases.

@ flashman:

The chapter badge is a green snake head, seen from "face to face" with bared fangs.
Your chances to look at Tacs are really low, since this chapter will be a bike-only-list.
Scoutbikers will be the only scout-unit and have the same paintscheme as their full-fledged brothers.
Difference in armor and bikes is enough to seperate them.

Every biker (plus attack bikes) will find his way to dakka sometimes ( Dec/Jan ).

I dunno...

hmm, from what I can tell, the faces and armour (faces especially) could do with some kind of wash, other than that, its acceptable

I like what I can see.

As an aside, if your using a digital camera, are you using the digital macro feature or just trying to focus on them manually? I too suck at taking pics of my models, but the digital macro setting atleast lets people see all the details, as poor as the lighting may be.

They look either acceptable or well done, but the pics are a little too blury to tell.

I like the name and color scheme though.

The Emperor doesn't seem to do much for you but you sure are expected to be mutilated, suffer, and die to make him happy. And is he dead or what? If he's entombed that would mean he's dead as a doornail, right? So, how can he be happy about anything you do, or even give orders to anyone? Are you worshipping the dead now? Is that something you'd really want to do? Because it sounds freaking creepy to me.

I'm fine with acceptable

Could try washes (do these desert dwellers wash themself?) on the faces.

thanks for your replies.
