Raptors test mini

It was a gorgeous day today so I got my Raptors assault squad completely primed up. Realized I'd promised some pics of the test mini - which was done using just washes for all of the armour.

Would appreciate some feedback, you'll notice the armour is quartered, I gave 2 quarters an extra green wash. Everyone I've asked has been 50/50 on whether they like that or the lighter one. Also, which metallic should I use? The bronze really pops but not sure if I like it. Finally do you like either of the colours on the eagle?

Tristan, the lighter one with the bronze, definitely the bronze.

Thanks Siph, any preference as to the chest eagle colour? I know they are pretty similar.

oooh, nice work! tough question tho. I would go with that darker green more so than the lighter, as the lighter is a good Nurgle color :) but that's just me. Looking forward to seeing the squad finished!

They ended up slightly darker than the light side, but I think since the whole model is painted the same it looks a little lighter than it really is. I haven't made as much progress on them as I would like. Still playing with what colours to paint their weapons, and haven't even primed the jump packs yet. Should be a post about them soon though.
