Crimson Fists: Sternguard - painted (as much as I care to)

Well sorry for the crappy pic but it's about all I can bother for these guys.  These are my Crimson Fist sternguard - having languished unpainted since Aug 3rd 2009 they definitely deserved some love considering how often they are used.  Unfortunately they didn't come out exactly the same as my previous CF marines and termies - I did make a mistake in the order I used blue wash and devlan mud - but even after extensive drybrushing of regal blue and trying again it was just a more purplish colour.  I did use a spray gun for the regal blue basecoat over a new kind of black primer so there are plenty of possible culprits.
I've had them about 95% done for a couple months now - it just annoyed me enough to want to take a break from them.  I got all the decals on and all the other touch ups I can be bothered with.  Pass on doing hazard stripes for the heavy flamers at this point - maybe I will feel the urge later.  I won't bother with the fineliner scribbles either until I am going to seal them since it will just rub off.  Oh well at least they are painted up if not perfect.  During the break I got a fair amount done on two rhino chassis and accessories, I hope to get them finished up soon too along with my two (WIP1 & WIP2) planned entries to Fallen Prince's Badab Special Character competition.  Actually I just realized I only have 10 days left, so I better hurry up on those!
