I think you have the reflections right and good contrast (especially in the last shot above). At a distance it looks really good.
By way of constructive criticism, I would suggest smoothing out the blends from light to dark a little more (up close the transition looks very sudden and you can easily see the different colour variations). The sides of the thigh armour also look a little too black compared to the lower leg armour at the same angle. Maybe carry the thigh colour closer to the edge?
Definitely a sound effort though and I think your execution is far beyond my abilities!
