Hey LO crew
I'm about to repaint my warriors of chaos army ( which is only partially painted anyway) because the red paint job they have right now is just not what i want. I've been trying some different scemes looking for a dark overall theme for my army. This will contrast nicely with my bright Orcs and goblins and will give a better sense of what my chaos warriors are...badass killing machines.
I have taken it down to 2 colour scemes which i both like alot:
the one of the left is done with a grey basecoat and 2 washes of black, with chainmail highlights. the one on the right is tin bitz with a black wash. both have a dark red cape and grey-white fur.
the grey sceme is a bit easier to paint and i tried to recreate lord boraks sceme with it. which took me a long time to figure out even with the tutorial on your blog borak. and it still doesn't look as slick as you do it .
the tin bitz sceme seems to show the ancientness of the chaos armour a bit better and the boltgun highlight works very well i think.
Anyway, i was wondering what you guys though, both models are still lack some highlights on the weapons and the base aren't finished , so keep that in mind.
Can I vote for the Bronze warrior withe the Grey ones shield? The red shield kinda throws the armor off for me.
For the greater good, my will be done!
Tau- 4k~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Tomb Kings- 2.5k
Thousand Sons- 1850 ~~~~~Night Goblins- 900
I voted for the bronze one, although I think you should make the shield duller - it draws attention away from the armour, as CrimsonWraith stated before.
My project log: High Elves (and other stuff actually, but mainly High Elves).

I like the right one better. Good stuff mate. abit to dark for my taste but as you said your not done with the highlighting.
I think they both look great mate. Battle worn but very neat. Does it have to be one or the other? I know most people like a uniform look across their miniatures but I recently painted up a band of with a Nurgle theme and mixed the colours between the traditional greens and a dark flesh tone similar to your Tin Bitz scheme (which if you don't mind i might have a little steal of because I really like it! )
Mixing it up like that gives the unit a kind of rag-tag warband feel, while limiting your pallette to two or three colours still makes them look coherent.
But I'm rambling now. Were I forced to choose, I would say the one on the right mate. And please enjoy some rep for great looking minis!
Night gathers, and now my watch begins.
