So, I recently painted up a reaver jetbike for round one of the Iron Painter Challenge. Here's some photos. Please let me know what you thing (including what I could improve).

There's still a few things I want to touch up/modify (such as adding blood stains to the blades) but I'm pretty happy with the overall result. I'm also not totally happy with the front rune. I may repaint it to be more similar to those shown in the codex.

Looks really good, if I was going to be hyper critical I'd put an extra level of highlights on the very corners of the sharpest edges of the bikes, but I really can't fault that paint job - do you have anything else in the pipeline?

Nice job! The blue and gold look great together as well.

NICE! Really like the blue, and the freehand runes look great. I would only add something to grab the eye a bit-I'm thinking that painting the gems around the engine red and finding somewhere else to put red would really make the paint job sing. You sir are on your way to one gorgeous army if you keep this up!
Makes me really want to paint my Reavers...

Very nice - I wish I could do freehand runes like that. I do think it would benefit from some contrasting red/orange/yellow spot element to help it "pop," but the color scheme and paint job is very nice.
