Oooh, evil minions! Very intersesting monster designs...especially the beastie with the scythe-like claws. Excellent shading here, but it'd be wonderful to see these creatures in colour 2.

Hey, cool picture. I used to play 40k but i dont much anymore, although i still love the storyline and all the art... Anyway, try to use more foreshortening in your pictures. Notice that the carnifex's scythes are all going straight to the left or right? The picture would be much more interesting and believeable if some of them were foreshortened, i.E. Coming towards or going away from the viewer. Same thing with hands, like the lictor's- the fingers should be behind each other instead of all in a row, or even better in a claw-type pose. Also, the lictor's stance should be more leaning forward, just keep in mind the center of gravity with those type of legs. Draw more tyranids!
