    I like your style. It is nice and neat and great color choices. The Ogres and Dryad unit are especially nice. The only suggestion I can make is bring up your highlights a bit.

    Looking good, but can you rotate them so that they aren\'t side ways. That way would be easier to give a more accurate critique.

    You sir are a painting machine judging by the amount of minis you get done.

    Looks great, the battle damage is top notch. Also a nice job blending it into the base itself which increases the idea...

    I\'ll echo on some of what Einion said. Nice and clean and you\'ve got a good idea of what colors work well together.
