The colors fit well, but you need to thin out for paints a bit with water or a 50/50 mix of water and future floor wax.
Several thin coats are better than two really thick coats. The pics are a touch blurry but I'm not a grade A photographer so I cant give any tips on how-to improve on that

Over all good work

You might want to take a little more time on your next one. Like faol said, a few thins are better than one thick coat. I'd go over the white trim again until I couldnt see the brushstrokes (what happens when you do thick coats), and maybe if you're daring, paint or ink the black lines seperating the blue from the white on its top. Good for contrast.

I do like the eye, its very vibrant. Most of my eyes in my army are pink (Mobile Suit Gundam Zaku style =p) but thats me.

Also, why did you clip off the little nubbin on the end of its aerial?

Yeah what I do is dip my paint, then just a dab of water, and I get a smooth outcome.

About the white it's acualy space wolf grey and I can't get it to cover any tips? I think i got a bad pot of the stuff
Actualy the lines are blacked in most places the picture doesn't show it that well
about the nubbin it was in my first fire warrior squad so I wasn't sure what to cut and what not to cut.
