The only real thing to note is the pose. It seems very rigid.
Of course this isn't a problem if that is the intended look, or if that's just a base pose to sculpt other poses around.

I will also note that the colours might blur together when viewed at 100% zoom. This can be both good or bad, depending on whether the colours help define the shape or not. If colours are a problem i recommend higher contrast and fewer shades.

Generally 90 degree angles are a no-go for organic posing. In certain situations it can work but you'll want to angle things to make them seem alive.

Your example isn't a terrible job, although playing around with different positions can help you find a good pose.

Hi, so... I did something.
Those look good so far, I like the helmeted guy. Their skin is maybe too saturated or their faces need some detail like a mouth or some eyes. If you don't want to do that, try more elements like that balaclava or bandanas, gas masks, night vision, etc.

I think the plating on your robot should be darkened a little, or use more of your shadow value. The yellow looks okay but blends a little into the rest of it's head.

I've been trying out different ideas for base stuff. This is a small factory powered by some wacky tesla coil thing.

I'm wondering why these guys lack any facial detail. I tried to add it, looks OK in my opinion. Also, I quite dislike the headgear, it looks like a light cap, not a ballistic helmet. So I tried to sprite it and it's also OK.

Well, worked some more on it, tried to make a 'gas mask', while didn't really work out the most pretty.

OMG, it is alive!
Still, it looks (at least to me) that guns are too big while car is seem to be smaller than it should be.

I'm filled with regret every time I see that old robot I made. So, I took another shot, and I think it turned out way better. Now I still don't think they're great, but I've definitely made some improvements. Criticism is highly appreciated, especially if it helps me get better in the future.

I messed with your tank a bit, one of them anyway by adding a highlight, some markings and details. It's up to you how busy you want your unit to look or how big it should be, but this might give you some ideas. Plating on the side of a tank can be really intricate or simple but it's ultimately a flat side of a metal box you're trying to show. Some people make units slightly face the viewer to show the front, personally I don't and try to make up for the lack of dimension with details. Tanks have all kinds of equipment they need like fuel cans, ammo boxes, chains, sections of track, tools, even improvised armor like bundles of logs strapped or tied to the body. You can add vents or open tread to make the hull of the vehicle more complex looking. I like the turrets on your tanks like the flak and the smaller leftmost gun that has a dip in the middle and looks rounded.
I had a hard time making out the shades so I added a brighter gray as light reflection and a saturated yellow for a brassy marking color. It's not required, maybe some crew or infantry would flesh out your sheet more.

I'm afraid that such scale is too small for PW

That might be because they're yours. I always liked them and I wanted to keep my humans around the same scale.

The rangers are mostly done, I'm starting on the vanguard who are basically lethally irradiated cyborgs who die in battle or slowly microwave themselves with their own radium carbines.

I'm basing them off of the plastic models and the stock paint-job for Adeptus Mechanicus, pretty much just looking up pictures and trying to copy the different bits. If you think thats messy, check out this one:

Armiger Knight done, this might be as tall as the units I make get but it's essentially the smallest knight. It's also going to be a huge hassle to pose.

I will gladly redraw every loop of cable and weird chicken foot if I ever get the chance to use it in a match. I think infantry can be pretty hard to pose too, I'm not so happy with my own being kind of blobby and similar. Their cloaks kind of get in the way of the legs.
