Don't quite have the time to paint?
Check out the site - Great prices, Great painting!
I believe it is too brown right now, it almost looks like some kind of wooden armour. Although, for a first attempt it looks quite good. To make it look more like gold i would add some bubonic brown and mix it with white which would really make it shine.

It looks good, but like Spacewolf, I think it looks like dragon hide rather than gold.
I think more yellow is needed to make it more 'gold'.
Check out some GD winners for good examples of NMM.

That's my favourite.
Cervantes: In order to attain the impossible, one must attempt the absurd.
More yellow and oddly placed hilights is the way forwards. Although I quite like it as it is.
Up, up and away!
I agree with most of the comments already posted, although I really wood () like to see a Wood Elf army done like this, as it creates a very interesting wooden look to it...
I quite like it as well, I don't know that yellow is right though you could try it. THe colour that i found the best was Bubonic brown, I bought sunburst yellow but basically didn't touch it.
Bubonic brown up to bleaced bone then white, I think the white is the most important and most difficult part, it is the extreme highlights that give the metal that reflective quality and while I haven't got it perfected yet I am fairly sure that it is the white that makes all the difference.
Awesome first attempt anyway man and I really hope to see more. That unit of Phoenix gaurd will look terrific when you finish and you will have mastered the NMM.
