Hi, bit hard to judge from the pic, but a few tips, thin your paint more, abuse washes, they are your best friend, In my opinion avoid metalics, use multiple greys, washed and highlighed, will give you a much better effect, also, use more colours, build with layers than just one thick coat. For a first effort, not bad :)

Nice, I also do Grey Knights. Tip if you want it: prime black, then drybrush leadbelcher, this will give the model a nice war beaten 40k look, you can highlight after if needed. I find that this is the quickest way to do the armor and turns out great for a chapter thats been fighting deamons for their existence haha.

well for the gold when I was just starting, I tried to paint every little thing without messing up the black backround. I soon found out that is just way too time cosuming and doesn't look that great. So what you do is dip a medium size brush in something like dwarf bronze(a darker metalic tone) and just kinda paint/bloch it in those areas. not too much or the detail will be swallowed by the paint, but just enough so that the lettering is covered. Don't worry about the backround or getting some on the armor. If some gets on the armor you can touch it up later. After all the gold areas have their "base" you'll want to put a wash over them, mixture of paint and water, can be store bought or self made. I used a mix between badab black and delvan mud (citadel washes) if you make your own just put together some black and dark brown and add about the same amount of water on a mixing tray. Ok once you've "washed" the gold areas then you can highlight them with a brighter gold color like "shining gold". - As for the cloth take some "bleached bone" or any off white color and slap it on there. don't worry about brush stokes showing, they actually add to the texture. After that a brown wash like "delvan mud" thown and I mean who cares where this stuff ends up on top of that. There you have it! Whew it's really simpler than it looks in text lol

i'm late to the party, but my first model was the 2003 version of the Warhammer chaos spawn
had the colours down awesome and then began adding skulls from my brothers spare parts
and then the dog managed to chew all the spikes off and swallow the head and leave deep gauges in the body
needless to say i did not try to get the head back
