Why pink? Looks totally off... Nice work otherwise.
I think you want it to look like he have patched togheter his armour with the parts of his enemeis, but the pink just looks wrong.
Do an icon on his shoulderpad and re-paint the pink and I think it will look good.
And the arm holding the shield looks a lot bigger than the other...
Yup the pink (emp children) aquired armour does look wrong. The best results I have seen are using blue or red armour plates to show the Chaos parts. It works really well with the Grey of the 13th Co. I suggest trying that!
The rest is all good.
I agree, use dark red instead of the pink, that will definately help.
To make him stand out, how about a banner? I'm usually not a big fan of these, and they don't make that much sense with 13th co, but if you just had an upright pole (without the T cross bar) with lots of wolf tails, chains and bits of dead chaos marines, I think it might work.
Also, maybe think about replacing the arm holding the shield with a newer one (that's second edition, right?), but I can see that you might not want to do that what with having almost finished the model.
Otherwise, it's pretty good

Replace the pink with red ( I like blood red myself).
Also, to get the whole "rune" thing going you could stick the 13th company transfers that look like runscript onto his armour. Gets whole "runes of warding" thing going (which you would think he would need).
You could also make the tips of his blade a shade of blue, so it looks like the energy is flowing to the tips and they are glowing because of that.
I would thin the paints a bit. The model looks dark overall.. I would paint the armor in a lighter gray coz i think that looks cooler. The fur could be lighter too..
But first of all, thin your paints. That would make a big change.
I think the pink is fine in the sense that why wouldn't they take Emporer's Children's armor as with any chaos armor. I think it adds character to the figure. However I do have a few suggestions for in the future.
You may want to actually use Chaos parts for the legs, arms, whatever parts you want to be chaos. That way you get the chaos symbols, edging, etc. so it is more apparent what they are doing.
Currently what I would do is darkling between the segments a bit better - especially around the pink as there are a few areas that look a tad messy. The first segment of the pink foot comes to mind.
A flat matte varnish will do wonders to kill the shine. I highly recommend this. It will look a lot better.
Other than that - I think you have an interesting idea going. Thin your paints, and envision your work as a whole so that you get a cohesive looking army in the end.

Looking good. He's too shiny, but the matte will clear that right up. The colors still look a bit flat. More highlighting and shading may be a good idea on at least the bigger armor parts. The look now is a bit cartoony with the strong, solid colors and deep black lining. Fine if that's what you're going for though.Originally Posted by Helbrecht
Some more highlights here and there (knee-pads, foots, shoulderpad-lining and a few otehr places) and he will be awsome!
Runes are also good to cover up larger areas like the kneepads. Take a peak in the SW 'dex, shouldn't be to hard to paint really.
