Congratulations. You have painted a very nice Lord, what I can make out of the pics...
I would tone down the gold on his legs. Apart from that nothing! 8Y
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
It's an impressive mini, nicely posed and a brilliant start to za painting.
Papa K has some suggestions.
1. Firslty, finish off the base. I think if you do that then it'll really start looking finished. Basing is actually pretty easy to get a decent look on. Much easier than I thought.
2. I think you're at the stage where you can start working more on your metals (the silver and gold trim).
How I'd personally do it, is wash the silver bits with black (1part paint, 4-5 parts water) and then drybrush with boltgun metal and then highlight with mythril.
Silver is interesting because it's easy to get some interesting hues on it too. Try chestnut ink too.
The gold is a little more detailed in that you need more colours and shades of gold, but basically it follows the same pattern.
Wash with a darker shade (chestnut ink, blacks, browns) and then highlight/drybrush with lighter shades.

Finish off the base, and everyone will love it.
As for your metallics, try the following wash recipes out for size:
Silvers ~ First wash the whole lot with very watered down dark blue (regal blue or similar). Then apply a slightly more watery (yup, MORE!) dark brown, with a tiny bit of the blue added. Finally, wash with (very, very, VERY) watery black.
Golds ~ First wash with a dark red (same sort of thinness as the blue, last time). Then a darkish brown (like the brown + blue last time), then finally 50/50 brown/black.
Those should give you some interesting depth and tonality to your metallics, tinting the golds slightly reddish (complimenting the red armour), with blueish silvers (contrasting nicely).
Just some thoughts for you to mull over!

Very nice!! Congratulations meeesh! from hound to this! your excellent! more! MORE! i cant wait to see your army once you done ^_^ +Rep from me!
He looks good. I like your use of parts and his positioning, he looks very aggressive. I think you could do with just touching him up to get him looking very good. There seems to be some metallics on his cloak and you should paint over those marks.
I would also suggest that you use some watered down black to shade the area where the trim of his armour makes contact with the red of his armour. I have done that and it looks much better with some black to mark out where the metal ends and the red begins.
I love the massive axe. Really great work, especially the red-gold blades.
The Emperor set a fire in their hearts that they might burn the iniquitous and the impure from his sight. And the light of that flame shall be as a beacon to the faithful, a light that shines in the darkest places.
Nice work meish. Your skills are shaping up very well.
I agree with some of the previous posters that the base needs finishing, it would make it even better and I agree that you probably are ready to try some more 'advanced' methods. I'm sure you would do very well.

Keep it up!
