Sure why not? I think it looks great. White is usually a hard colour to work with, but you pulled it of nice.
Face looks good too BTW, although I am not fond of the modelling of it (but that's not your fault Very Happy ).

It's... white. Not bad actually. Are You sure You don't want to add more depth?

What can I say, this is first thing that come in mind when I see white DE.



Also, You may try using different colour for metal - gold IMHO fit. Red, Blue, Purple - any of those colours work for squad markings.

The scheme itself works wonderfully. The bases, however, don't IMHO. Try to paint your bases in colours contrasting the minis themselves (maybe desert/wasteland stuff?) so they pop out more.

yeah the bases right now have me stumped. i have rubble and metal grates right now but i cant think what else to put there. i was thinking maybe some skulls and bones in brown dirty tones but any suggestions are very much appreciated.

ya, I'd definitely agree about the bases. Right now the feet sorta look like they blend into the base.

Something like a red earthed tone, or even just a straight green grass would probably make them pop. If you are staying with the rubble, add some more decapitated/dismembered pieces with splashes of red blood?

I think they look great! They'll stand out from the usual DE fare but they still manage to look cold and cruel. I am experimenting with a similar scheme myself, I hope it turns out as well as yours. I agree with the others concerning the basing, but I almost feel that a wintry/snow theme would look very nice alongside them.
Did you prime them white?

I like it. It's a nice break from the stereotypical dark schemes. In addition, it shows your Kabal is ballsy. A Kabal wearing white in the dark of Commorragh would be highly visible. It's like a super manly taunt.

A great scheme, luv it! Something very different. Maybe some more shading or highlighting to break it up a little bit more, but that's just a suggestion.
