Wow.  Looks great.

Great eyes and everything.  I especially like the verdigris-colored wings to match the bronze!

I'd missed that color connection at first, but that makes it look even better now!

It's absolutely beautiful! I like the subtle contrast between the spikes and the metallic scales. The deep sea green of the wings and the base are amazing too.

That looks fantastic!  Mind sharing which metallics you used?  They really work for this model.

Sure, I used all Citadel paints:

 

WIngs

Basecoat of Incubi Darkness followed by a wash of Coelia Greenshade. I then carefully drybrushed Kabalite Green on making sure it didn't look too dusty then I used Sybarite Green to add some lighter highlights to the edges, "fingers" & "knuckles". Finally, I added a small amount of Screaming Skull to the Sybarite Green & used it for the final highlights on the wing tips, extreme edges & the "knuckles".

 

Main Body

Basecoat of Balthasar Gold followed by a over-paint of Sycorax Bronze. I then applied a wash of Agrax Earthshade. Finally a drybrush of Sycorax Bronze was applied to tidy things up & make the edges a bit sharper.

To add some extra interest to the main body I gave an extra highlight of Runefang Steel to the horns, claws, teeth & selective scales/spikey bits I followed this with a 50/50 glaze mix of Guilliman Blue/Waywatcher Green thinned down with some acrylic medium.

 

Belly Scales

The neck to tail belly area is slightly different to the main body & was painted using a basecoat of Balthasar Gold with an overpaint of Gehenna's Gold followed by a wash of Agrax Earthshade. I then tidied it up with a careful drybrush of Gehenna's Gold.

 

Stone Blocks

I started with a black basecoat followed by a "wettish" drybrush using Steel Legion Drab. for the highlights I used Tallarn Sand followed by an edge highlight of Karak Stone.

 

Hope this is useful to you! ::):

      I have wanted to get into painting for a long time and have watched days worth of videos on it. i think it shows in how my first minis came out.
      the first was a reaper kobold and he looks a bit sloppy. (on the card for the hobby holder i got because i could not find anything else to put him on for the pic lol)
      next was a blue kobold and a baby dragon, I was still working on how washes work with the blue kobold but the dragon came out better.
       
      now the one i did today

      I am pretty proud of him, for being my forth mini i think he looks really good. he is colored like a ring neck snake.

      From Bones 3: Gug

      "It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally."

      Obviously, lycanthropy has spread too far...and this is a reminder that Reaper are from Texas, where armadillos are native and as I understand it, seen as pests. I would really like to know how the sales figures for this model compares to other lycanthropes.
