Looks good to me.

I am putting my Start Collecting! Skitarii box together right now and this is one of the models you can make with it.

I have no idea how I am going to paint them.

Splendid!  I think you did a perfect job of capturing the classic Rogue Trader miniatures-painting aesthetic for this figure, while going above and beyond with the nifty broken-pavement decorative base.

 

If you wanted it to look "grim and gritty," one short-cut method (while still maintaining the bright comic-book coloring) would be to do a bit of rough stippling with some brown and/or grey at the hem of the long-coat, to suggest areas where the edges got caught in some sort of muck.  I've found that it can serve as a nice visual short-hand so the character doesn't look completely pristine, without committing to trying to make the WHOLE figure look grim and gritty.

That's the set I got, I only really wanted the Dunecrawler, but you can't argue with get troopers for free (especially when they're nice),

I will have to give that a try.

It'll have to wait until I get the whole group done and apply their decals though.
