Doesn't look to bad to me. The gold looks a little faded, but that might be because of the picture however. I like the way it looks, it doesn't have to be bright "yellow-ish" gold anyway.

The whites need a little more depth though. Don't get me wrong, you applied some solid layers on the whites to get a nice even coverage... but white never looks perfectly white.

Do yourself a favor when you are going to paint an army... Start with a more brown basecoat (such as snake bite leather) for a warm tint to your robes, or a more grey basecoat (like stone grey) if you prefer a more colder white. It'll add more depth to the miniature overall, it'll look more realistic AND it'll be easier on you in the long term.
