This is the current army I'm working on (and almost finished). So far taken them to 2 tournament and got 2nd and best painted in one, and 2nd in the other.

Rather than rehashing the information, just look through my site (still a WIP) the first page has the fluff and at the bottom it has a link to the pictures (some have to be taken).

Beware of the horribly bright orange motif :p

I like the high lighting you used and you definatley have skill.

This is just a personal preferance but to bring out detail I like to make the crevices in the armor noticably darker than the flat surfaces of it. This will further bring out your highlighing and make the model look better. It will break up the orange and let the eye automatically seewhere the armour plates are seperated.

Man great models! orange models are the coolest 8) (that means your models too duffilous) But, just wondering, are fire prisms sorta like IG Hellhounds (its what it seems like)

No, hellhounds shoot flame templates up to 24 inches away.
Fire prisms are the Eldar's big antitank gun/ vehicle

You make the orange fit perfectly. Points for that. I also work with orange, but that's on my Nids. Do not try this at home, you will start crying.

First, Very nice paintjob, the fact that you painted the tiny screen (instead of just "green") amazes me (that's just me. Because I'm lazy and my brushes are big)
Second, Duff (wasn't your name Duffman a long time ago? Hmm), your scheme is nice too, it's just less detailed I suppose.

Unfortunatly the pictures don't do them justice. The layering is from Blazing Orange to Fiery Orange, and a lot of the detail is lost in the photos. In R/L you can make out the plating much easier, even from a distance.
