I prefered a grey skin tone similar to the artwork that has Dannon and Blythe over the studio blue for skin

Overall a good job. I particularly like the tartan and the skin tone. I know from experience how hard it is to paint that chequered pattern on to the cloth.
I do think your lack of mold line removal really lets you down for the final appearance though.

This was one of the first things I noticed also. I found out a long time ago, when I first started painting, that a mold line that may be barely visible on bare metal stick out like a sore thumb on a painted model. It's really worth the effort to get a couple small files and clean them up prior to painting.
Aside from that though, some really nice work there. I also prefer the gray skin, never was a fan of the blue. And as said, the tartans came out really well. I've had these guys in the box since they were released, maybe some day. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah I didn't really notice the mold lineon the one guy's arm until I started painting the armour/ In the pictures it is much more accentuated then in person, but I am tempted to file it down and repaint it

Can I suggest that you finish the basing, then post a new photo.
Sand / black circles very much spoils the overall appearance of a model.
Yours look nice, but an unfinished product is harder to judge.
Re: Flash removal:- Scrap across it with a sharp craft knife (fresh blade preffered) at a right angle. You'll soon get a silver line appear to let you know you've taken the flash off, and it will cause much less damage to your paintjob than filing will.
