Cirdan the Shipwright

Good morning, I wanted to post a couple of pictures of my recently painted Cirdan model. Another of my "Long Sitting in Just His Basecoat" models, He's languished for quite some time. Possibly because I was not sure how I wanted to paint him.

The light isn't the best so it's hard to get a clear look at the colors, but his robe is Ice Blue, and the sash is Enchanted Blue. The skin is Elf Flesh, and the hair is Fortress Grey with Space Wolves Grey highlights. His cloak is Space Wolves Grey with Skull White highlights, and the clasp is Mithril Silver. His robe and sash have an Asurmen Blue wash, and the robe also has a light highlight of Ice Blue.
I'm not a real big fan of the official GW paint scheme with the purple/deep blue colors, so I wanted to try something different. Blue is a factor of most of my High Elf models, so I wanted to keep it in, but also wanted to add some grey (he's from Mithlond, The Grey Havens after all, right?). I think I like the way it turned out :)
