As the subject says I am just getting back into 40k after a six year break(played 3rd edition). I would like to get some feedback on my freshly painted models and would certainly like to hear some painting and modeling tips from you vets out there. Thanks guys

The images attached are of my repainted IG and my Ultra Marines from the Black Reach box set(haven't got to the Orks yet ). Oh and there are FOW in the shots so feel free to talk about them too if you wish.

There is one aspect about your painting that is unique- and that is your brush control and how clean you paint.

I must say, what brand-brushes do you use? Your lines are very sharp and clean. I am very impressed.

I'm with the others on this. Very nicely done.

A pretty standard tip these days is to look into washes to add a bit more definition and depth.
Perhaps add some more detail to your bases. I find that can really bring a mini together.

Even if you don't, I personally don't think you've anything to worry about.

I see some FoW there? Which are they? British?
