These are very nice! Love the shading and highlights, and I'm assuming the shields are hand-painted? :thumbup:
What color did you use for the shading on the body armor? Is it some kind of dark brown?

Thanks friends :-D ! The patterns on the shields were already sculpted, I just had to paint them. For the armor I use a basic coat of Model master gold (enamel) and then I mix black and brown acrylic color with water until it is very dilluted and use it as a wash. Then I add some highlights wit the model master gold. Very simple...
