I think they look really good, but sadly, on table top, you hardly notice the camo. With miniatures, you need to lighten up the colours a lot to compensate for the scale effect.

There's a pretty good article here:

So assuming 1/56 = 28mm - you should add about 12% white to the colour to compensate for the scale effect.
