Hey there, this is my first army and first experience painting models. I was inspired by a picture of desert marines I saw, and said I wanted to do that as well. While I don't think I quite did as well. I am happy with how it turned out. And.... I HATE painting faces.

I'm digging this army dude, nothing wrong with how it's painted, keep up the good work! Keen to see how you run this army in a battle report too!

I like the contrast with the light armor and dark eyes. Often it is the other way around.

i like the idea of a SM army having true cam,afterall it would make tactical sense if it were real to blend into your surroudings even in the future and if thats your first army than very good work on the paint.

Join the Imperial Guard. The pay's lousy, the battles fierce and you probably won't ever come back again. BUT you get a lasgun.
