It's a lot better than I could do!

Could maybe use a few more details in the body? The big chunk of silver is a little offputting, and makes the green stand out more than it should.I assume you made the heads/arms green to indicate that these are the green-level figures?

I like them a lot. I don't mind the green on the shoulders, if anything a little more green on the armor might break the silver up a bit. I've never been good at picking colors so I'm definitely not one to criticize.

They look 100% better than plain green.

Great first job. I found as you do more you get braver and braver with the little brushes to try and do more details and risks wreaking it. The hardest thing I had to learn when I started was painting things with a brighter color then I wanted as the wash (usually thinned black paint) darkens everything by like 2 shades and then going back and repainting it. The way I did the silver was I had it as the base color and then I dry brushed metallic green or blue lightly so it didn't cover fully and was very thin see:

I painted the spider guys with the same paint scheme as the spine critters and splashed some pink so it matched the pictures in the book. I would think you can paint right over sealant as it's just clear paint but I usually don't work with it as I like the flat paint look usually and don't have to worry about rough handling so they won't get scratched. Can't wait to see how your spiders work out mine where kinda average. Have fun
