I've had the warpack for awhile but finally got around to painting them. The pictures are not the best but I wouldn't mind hearing what everyone thinks!
I will be finishing the base with some snow and ice, but right now it's just dirt.

did you dip him or just use somthing like delven mud?

Nice color choice :) I like blue skin, that's why I own trollbloods :p
While finishing your base give the teethridge and teeth some shading with a wash. It would be a better matching for the overall paintwork.

Its a devlen mud wash on the armor, then some highlighting after in some areas. I was considering washing the teeth,but they may end up to dark. Would a watered down wash work for that?

Watered down Devlan Mud should do fine for both. I would add a second layer around the bottom to darken the color a bit there. You could also use some gryphonne sepia if you have it, it's more yellowish than devlan mud. Fits fine for teeth/nails imho.
Edit: If I'm unsure about darkening with a wash, I water it down a bit and do some test streaks on a paper (usally newspaper which covers my desk) beside the pure one. So you see how much weaker the effect will be on the mini afterwards. If you are watered it down to much just add another layer as they will simply add together
2nd Edit: You can also use some contrast wash (in this case you have to water it down) for shading the teethridge. Some blue or purple in this case. I'm a great fan of the GW Washes and use them constantly while painting. You can achieve nice effects with them. One thing I used to do while painting leather: one basecoat over different areas and then a shading with different washes. You gain a qucik break up between different areas and they stayed linked together in some way through the same basecoat. I love those washes as you see :)

I have had the washes for awhile but only recently "discovered" them, and have found them very helpful. Though I wish there was a way to get "light" washes, like white or yellow.
