I made the mistake of using a cool white that had a slight blue hue on the highlights. 

I don't know; I think it kinda adds to the 'slowly awakening magical guardian' effect.

 

Good work!

Alright, y'all are making me feel better about it.  As always, I'm sure I'm my own worst critic.  The highlights didn't come out as I had hoped, but some of the recess shading helped blend some of what I'd consider mistakes or otherwise 'unnatural' strokes disappear.  The blueish tone was a bit stronger than I wanted in some areas, but it helped the 3 greys I used to look different.  I used mostly Vallejo paints on this one:
Stone Grey
Neutral Grey
Off White
Silver Grey

 

Then helped tie them in with a dark wash of scale 75 paints thinned down of blue and brown.  There's always more to do the model, but I think it's safe to put it down where he's at.  

 

I also want to say thanks to @inarah for picking the model to do.  Fun challenge and always up to have something to motivate me to try something.

 

I appreciate the feedback a ton.

Nephrite / Jadeite,  that's what it reminded me of. A mineral associated with the precious stone Jade but lower quality. Nephrite and Jadeite are both really hard stone, the perfect material for a Stone Golem
