15mm Walker concept

Hi guys, I had so much fun with the last Walker conversions that I wanted to continue with the next 4, these are the 4 medium sized models from the Nexus box of 10, and as these will be for an opposing force I wanted a differant look from the last 4, so I went for a round armour, I am a fan of COD MW II and like the Russian reddish/brown camo scheme, so I'm thinking of basing this force on similar colours, I'm not sure about the head replacement, and I think I will do something different then the arms/weapons provided, looking at my stash of GW stuff for new arms/weapons, I still need to armour the lower legs and will armor the shoulders, any ideas, thoughts or criticisms welcome.

Trojan wars project

Hi guys, I have started painting some Trojan war figures for my mate Scott, this set is from Redoubt Enterprises and some of the other figures in the project are from Foundry, this set is Achilles in 2 poses an attendant in 2 poses and a chariot driver, there are 20 other figures in this project, and I will be painting 5 at a time, these are war gaming quality figures with some annoying seems and flash, but they are interesting to paint, I would give these 6.5/10, all comments welcome.
Achilles - I wanted to keep similarities to the movie Troy, so I gave Achilles black armour and clothing.

15mm Sci Fi walkers

Hi guys, I have almost finished these walkers, they turned out pretty good for very basic models, I have big plans for the larger walkers in the set, I just have to wheather them around the legs a little, but that will depend upon the basing style I decide to use, I have narrowed it down to 4 styles, each with pros and cons, I plan on making a few 15mm sci fi armies all with the same basing style so I have to get it right.
1) Green Jungle, Pros, could be fun and if done right will look good, Cons, maybe to much work with several armies the same.
2) Grey/Brown rock like the colonial world in Aliens, Pros, will go well with the Xeno force I plan to make, simple, easy and fast, Cons, may be a bit bland.
3) red rock, like Mars, Pros, easy and fast, will give a good scifi feel, Cons, if I get the colour wrong it could look terrible.
4) Urban rubble, Pros, will fit well with a planned Terminator force, could look stunning if done right, Cons, a lot of work over several armies.
Any help or advise will be welcome, cheers.
