You will probably get more response if you fix the links so that they work. I did however cut and paste the link and checked out your scheme.
I think the color scheme is ok. In general it is rather plain. In a lot of the areas the red seems to run into the black. I would reconsider doing this as it can look a tad sloppy. The red on the backpack jets looks good. The highlights on the black are very harsh and severe. I would suggest toning them down a bit.
I think you were inferring that this is a test model but you might want to go back and clean up the areas where paint is spilled over or missing - such as the red on the back of the legs.
Overall there really isn't much wrong with it and it is table top quality so I can't say that there would be much problem fielding an army of them on the table. If you are looking for more than table top quality I would highly recommend looking at smoother highlights and a tighter more defined scheme.

I have to agree with the hairy one. I think darker color schemes work well on Chaos (for obvious reasons). That being said, a red-black scheme could work very well, but your reds come across (in the picture at least) as more of an orange than a red. In addition to cleaning up the paint job some, I would recommend using a darker, grittier red ( either scab red or blood red) as the base color, wash with a brown ink, and highlight up to at most red gore. I think that would look pretty good, and be more consistent with the idea of a cursed, millenia old warrior.
Just my thoughts.

thanks guys, thats exaxctally what i wanted.
and yeah its a test.
Aye, as they said be neater and tidy it up. Perhaps you should use a 50/50 mix of black and grey (one u used to highlight) as a edge and then use pure grey as an extreme edge highlight. I think that would improve the black alot. And tne down the orange a little, make it a more redish orange and put less on the model. But i really do like the colors. It fits chaos perfectly.
I love the effect of highlighting red to an orange/yellow and looks good against the black base armour but it aint red! that being said the orange and black look very good together as a colour scheme (black and orange is a very good eye catcher and is used alot in the sales market) my only advice would be to stay away from the strong highlights on the black armour in my opinion you should never mix 2 types of highlights!
Would love to see this colour scheme (if you keep it) on a finished model will you re-post a finished one?
